Now I have to ask: How old is that exactly? because the Deus Ex Franchise goes back to 1999, its a very old game, this just happens to be a prequel of the first one, which shares the same theme. Also yes, this game is heavily inspired in Blade Runner and other Cyber-punk classics. At least it did a great job at doing a homage, rather than go copy&paste mode without any substance. If you haven't tried it, don't judge it. There's a reason why all Deus Ex games (Except Invisible Wars maybe) were met with critical acclaim.Now with that being said, it was executed very well. It's 'pretty' in the way it sticks to a thematic element and story. But there's the catch...the story is a complete rip off of things that have been done hundreds of times, not to mention a cult Musical that basically wrote this game.
Repo, The Genetic Opera was original and amazing. This trailer takes that idea and like 10 other movies to make a video game trailer.
Just because its honest, doesn't mean its good.At least the GW trailer is honest about how cliche its themes are.
And that's the main reason why it sucks. Sell the game, not a side. Stop segregating gamers, and stop infusing hate and intolerance. Not to mention how incredibly cocky and arrogant it is to paint themselves as the saviours of a genre. Shouldn't those things be left to the public to decide? I dunno, that's just me thinking.It doesn't try to hide that it is calling you to 'revolt' in your gaming.
I have another term for that, ready for it? its BULLSHIT. Its like putting those hot models in bikinis chasing guys on Axe perfume commercials. "Ohh use our perfumes and you will be a chick magnet". Here's the news flash: While having a nice perfume helps, it takes A HELL OF A LOT MORE than just that if you want an army of fangirls fawning over you. Weren't you praising how honest they were before? if you honestly believe playing this game will make you hot, and will make you hipster, and will make you popular, and will make you awesome, tough break buddy, those are things you gotta WORK for, and no game will do those things for you.It's the whole point. Here are beautiful people who you want to be, doing things you want to do.
You know what the scientific term for that is? ADVERTISING.
I said it once and I'll say it again, THIS is how you make a good live action trailer. For a game that is.
