Fan-Made Alternate Mass Effect 3 Trailer Is THE BEST

Yes, I know what I said when the Mass Effect 3 launch trailer dropped back in February. “Good job, BioWare. You are officially excellent at advertising for your game.” And it’s true, they really were. (It’s just too bad they were advertising a game that didn’t actually exist.) One thing that’s become clear since I played the full game, however, is that looking back, even that trailer seems designed to pull in new players, and has little connection to the previous 2 games.

Just compare that trailer to those for the final Harry Potter films, or other epic film franchise conclusions. Those films take great pains to really remind the viewer of how far things have come, and of where it all started, 2 things I think are essential to capturing the sense of what the conclusion to a true trilogy ought to be. Mass Effect 3, notsomuch. It really would have been nice to see something that gave you the full sense of a 5 year epic. Which is why this amazing fan-made alternate Mass Effect 3 launch trailer is so mindblowing. Using voice over of Sovereign from Mass Effect, and some very, very key scenes from Mass Effect 3, it manages to perfectly capture the weight of Shepard’s story.

Have a look for yourself:

It would’ve been nicer if they made trailers from actual scenes from the game, moreso if said game were made of CGI animations for 50% of its content.

I am afraid though that the people involved in the making of pre-release trailer know nothing about the actual game, because the game is still in the making itself, so in ordr to avoid including scenes that could be taken out as a last minute decision they make htings up.

This issue about trailers not having anything to do with the actual game has been brought up some months ago because several trailers were fa rbetter than the related games, cant remember those titles.

Very cool and well made. I often wish I had the time and creativity to make these type of videos for some of my favorite games
