The best teasers, for me, were Hellblade 2 and Perfect Dark. My vote goes for Hellblade 2. That teaser gives me chills every time I watch it.

Perfect Dark. That dataDyne logo reveal was such a great moment for me (shame on me, I didn’t recognized the Laptop Gun earlier in the trailer).

And epic song.

This one was surprisingly tough. Hellblade 2 was amazing, especially as it was in-engine and unveiling the hardware. Fable did a great job nailing the tone, as did Starfield and Avowed. Outer Worlds 2 was my runner-up, a hilarious trailer that understands both the upsides and downsides of cinematic reveals. Peak Obsidian humour.

But my choice is Perfect Dark. Everything from the mystery at the start of the trailer, to the little easter eggs for fans, up to the giant DataDyne logo and Joanna herself, complete with a British accent once more. And that music choice was amazing. My choice overall, and I think it’s very promising the director of cinematics for the game directed the trailer.

Starfield followed by FM and Avowed.

Starfield and FM were at least in-engine and built some hype.

Hellblade II is among the best trailers ever made

My favorite was Everwild, it seemed to me something magical and unique, although I liked the second trailer better, put that in the cinemas during the commercials before the movie and you would gain a massive traction, mainly in family movies.

I like contraband because the song was such an awesome choice for the trailer.

Probably Fable for me - just based upon the vibe of trailer, I think Playground has nailed the sound and visual style of the older games.

This so much. The mushroom “kingdom” (?), the environment surrounding the sword atop of a skull, design of the elf, makes you really think “yeah this what I imagine as a childhood when reading fary-tale books”.

Hellblade 2 hands down.

I have easily watched THAT HB2 reveal over 30 times. Still hauntingly good.

I’m a touch more excited to play Starfield, but the trailer for Hellblade 2 is exquisite. It took my breath away, during The Game Awards, and it’s nearly as potent two years later.

It’s Hellblade 2 for me but The Outer Worlds 2 is a close second because that trailer is legitimately funny how it pokes fun out of trailers.

Definitely Hellblade 2 for me, it helps that it came as such a surprise that very few saw coming and the trailer itself is really cool. After that I’d have to say Perfect Dark (I think there’s a lot of potential for Xbox to make her one of the brands most recognizable characters) and then Starfield.
