E3 has been full of a bunch of great games announcements this year as we usher in a new era of consoles. While my wish list at the moment includes games like Destiny, The Division and Watch Dogs I thought the above clip was an excellent example of a games trailer done right. I get excited when i see game developers and musicians collaborating because, as much as I like sweeping orchestral soundtracks, it's pointed moments like these that make the game experience more memorable.
Before I wax poetic about the Assassin's Creed franchise the developers have a long way to go in effectively allocating their massive budgets and narrow timelines with a seamless and immersive game experience. AC3 was riddled with frustrating bugs and over ambitious mission staging, but damn it if they don't always get me with their trailers.
