Destiny's latest trailer, titled The Legend of You, is very different from your traditional trailers. The idea is simple: you go to this link, type in your GT or PSN name and select your character.

The site will then create a trailer starring your character, listing your various achievements and the feats you've accomplished.

Reddit users are trying it and posting their results. People feel a personal connection to their in-game characters, and it makes perfect sense.

You too should, and post your favourite moments below.
