Looking for a comprehensive list of the best video game trailers ever made? You've come to the right place!

Trailers are big business. Because face it; how will you convince anyone to play your game if you don’t know how to dress it up?

But not all trailers are made equal. Some, though ambitious, fall flat, while others are so good they stay in the collective psyche long after the hype for the game has died down.

Here we collect the 101 Best Video Game Trailers Ever Made – video game trailers from as recent as yesterday to those stretching back years. We’ve arranged them alphabetically, per year. So sit back, put your feet up, and enjoy!

2015

1. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – “Evie Fyre” Trailer

Evie Fyre isn’t the first female assassin to kick butt, but man, does she give one heck of a first impression. Seriously, watch the trailer and tell us you don’t feel sorry for her victims.

2. Call of Duty: Black Ops III

The future of warfare is horrifying, especially when you throw giant killer robots and ridiculously powerful weapons into the mix. It certainly helps that this trailer makes effective use of The Rolling Stones’ “Paint it Black,” one of the grimmest war songs ever composed.

3. Cyberpunk 2077 – Teaser Trailer

Why would a squad of well-armed, highly trained police officers want to riddle a poor, ordinary woman with bullets? Oh, don’t let us spoil it for you; go and watch the trailer!

4. Dark Souls III – Announcement Trailer

Dark Souls’ fantasy universe is so weird, we adore it to bits. No pretty sylvan elves or silly little gnomes here, just heavy helpings of hunchbacks, zombie giants, and ruined castles even Dracula would think twice about holing up in. One of the best video game trailers, ever.

5. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – E3 2015 Trailer

The world is changing, and maybe not for the better in the gorgeous, gold-tinged universe of Deus Ex. And this trailer gets bonus points for including actual gameplay footage!

6. Dishonored 2 – Official E3 2015 Announce Trailer

Everyone loves stealth games set in plague-ridden quasi-Victorian cities, where the authorities are corrupt and the alleyways are crawling with human scum. But this trailer made heads spin with its revelation that a certain helpless someone from the original game will be returning as a magic-using, swordfighting badass.

7. Doom – E3 2015 Gameplay Trailer

We’ve waited far, far too long for a proper sequel to the groundbreaking Doom. This trailer has everything we loved about the original – from the music to creatures that look like faithful renditions of the monsters we murdered in droves back in the ‘90s. Now that’s giving fans what they want!

8. Fallout 4

Interlacing the past with the present, we’re given a glimpse into a once-beautiful retro-futuristic world before it was ravaged by nuclear war. Plus, there’s a cute, immortal German Shepherd running around. What’s not to love?

9. Final Fantasy VII Remake – E3 2015 trailer

It begins like any ordinary trailer about a game set in some near-future city. Then it starts dropping hints. Those sign boards. A strangely familiar toy sword. The reactor. The music. And finally…

The remake. It’s happening, people. And we couldn’t be happier about it.

10. For Honor – E3 2015 World Premier Trailer

Knights? Vikings? Samurai? Three ingeniously interwoven worlds, one action-packed trailer.

11. Hellblade – Gameplay Trailer

Fearsome Celtic warrior Senua has all the forces of Hell to contend with; the problem is we don’t know what’s truly demonic, and what’s merely a manifestation of her insanity. The battle against mental illness has never been so terrifying. One of the best video game trailers this year.
