StarCraft II: The Honest Trailer

What does the honest trailer for the last surviving game in a near-dead drama look like? Even the folks on Reddit are willing to admit that the Honest Trailer for StarCraft II is both funny and sad because it’s true. Watch as the trailer takes you from the campaign to the multiplayer dominated by David Kim to the competitive scene that is even farther beyond your skills. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, it’ll become a part of you.

Mass Effect: The Honest Trailer

What happens when Canada’s greatest RPG developers sell out to America’s video game devil? You get the makings of an honest trailer for Mass Effect. If you’re a fan of Mass Effect, you can probably guess all the jokes that are made before you hear them but it doesn’t make this honest trailer any less awesome.

Final Fantasy VII: The Honest Trailer

It wasn’t until very recently that I found out that there was a version of YouTube sensation Honest Trailers about video games. It features the same amazing voiceovers by Jon Bailey but these videos are under the Smosh rather than Screen Junkies banner.

So for the first honest video game trailer we run on etg, it’s Final Fantasy VII. The good news is that you’ll probably be able to buy it for cheap during the Steam Sale that starts today.

There’s Even an Honest Trailer for Game of Thrones

Since I’m taking tomorrow off as a holiday (and I could really use a couple of days to not think about blogging and just recharge), I’m moving the usual Friday Game of Thrones post up to Thursday. I guess that makes today Thursday of Thrones.

This week, it’s an honest trailer for Game of Thrones that’s filled with spoilers. It also does a good job of pointing out how terrible of an idea it is to be Sean Bean or know Sean Bean in any fictional work. It does work out surprisingly badly.

Gravity Gets an Honest Trailer

It may be a critically acclaimed, award nominated movie but I haven’t really been too interested in Gravity. Sure, it looks pretty but the commercials didn’t seem to indicate much to the movie besides visuals and a panicking Sandra Bullock. And this edition of Honest Trailers… doesn’t do anything to change my mind actually.

And while I know that Honest Trailers takes the piss out of movies, between this and the terrible DVD ads, Sandra Bullock does seem a bit like Homer Simpson when he did his stint with NASA. Her character doesn’t exactly seem like she would ever make it past NASA training. Oh well. Suspension of disbelief and all that.
