The Best Video Game Trailers of 2016

A robot with PTSD, a wide open galaxy and a flashmob in pursuit of Mario are just some of the highlights that made these teasers more than just ads

Dishonored 2 "Take Back What's Yours" Bethesda

Dishonored 2 "Take Back What's Yours"

Another great live action trailer. Bethesda's dramatic 2 minute short for Dishonored 2 – dubbed "Take Back What's Yours" – did an amazing job of showing the look and feel of the game's baroque setting, bird-like clockwork robots, cool costumes and supernatural abilities. Set to the haunting sounds of "Take it All" by Nashville-based indie-pop artist Ruelle – the alter ego of Maggie Eckford, whose previous work you might recognize from TV shows Revenge, Sleepy Hollow, Reckless, and DaVinci's Demons – the trailer not only captures what makes the game special, but also convinced us that someone in Hollywood needs to be seriously considering snapping up the rights for a Dishonored movie.
