The topic here is simple, share the most badass promotional video for a game you've ever seen. Not the funniest, sexiest, or other. The most badass.
Personally i think Blizz is nailing it:

do trailers count ?!
I'm a little confused, what counts as badass?
I think the Retro City Rampage one is badass for being funny-retro.
I think the modified Witcher 2 trailer is badass for feeling like a Hollywood movie.
.. and I think the WiC: Soviet Assault trailer is badass for being emo and pretty.
But I'm not totally sure they fit the bill?
@SameeR_Fisher As long as it is a promo vid for a game, it counts. Trailer, no trailer. Doesn't matter :)
@DSB Whatever gave you a "Aw hell yeah" feeling when watching is what i count as being badass, but whatever your definition of it is, share ^^ Especially the Witcher 2 trailer, that one is awesome!
Obviously we can't have this thread without the Duke being represented :P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVuuyRGB_BA
Okay, I'm gonna start off with Witcher 2:
I love this one. The mix of music, pacing and images is amazing.
Next is WiC: Soviet Assault:
Fanastic composition of music and scenes from the game. I'd love to see a tps or even a fps based on that universe and with these characters.
Then you have the TV Spot for Halo ODST:
You can think what you want about Halo (I certainly couldn't care less about the series), but they really know their stuff when it comes to advertisement. Most of them however are over-emotional bullshit, but this one gets it right. In a few minutes they establish a character and his story arch. Well done, no wonder the guy produces Hollywood films now.
As mentioned above, most of Halo's ads are over-emotional bullshit, so it was nice to see Bulletstorm do a parody of it.
The buildup to the music is fantastic as is the music itself and the delivery of the line "Pull up your skirt and strap that dildo on" gets me every time.
Another great trailer. Though I think what's happening on screen is rather uninteresting, the music a fantastic choice and fits it perfectly.
Splinter Cell: Conviction:
Great composition. Love how the fade-out moves with the beat of the music. I think Johnny Cash is overused though.
Dark Souls 2:
Another great trailer, with beautiful images and fantastic music that gets the blood pumping.
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes:
Beautiful cinematography. This is what I love about the MGS series. Too bad the rest of the games is not as well done.
