The Best Video Game Trailers of 2016
The best trailers of the year, including 'God of War,' 'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild' and 'Overwatch' Glixel

Game trailers have always been entertaining, but the class of 2016 knocked it out of the park thanks to the ever-blurring line between Hollywood creators, CG houses and game studios blessed with some of the best artists in the business. Some of these mini-masterpieces – the Doom and Dishonored 2 trailers to name two – followed up world-class advertising with equally world-class games. Others looked much further ahead, offering a tantalizing glimpse of what's to come in 2017 if all goes according to plan for the likes of Nintendo, Sony and Rockstar.
