The 37 Greatest Live Action Video Game Commercials Ever

Throughout the course of gaming, advertisers have always wanted to give gamers a sense of how the game feels -- and they have to do it without using the actual game. Many of these commercials are produced long before the game's gone gold. So what to do? Live action video game commercials -- they're as tricky as they sound, and they can go very, very wrong. But when they go right, they can make the game's sales skyrocket. So of course, we've put together some of the best live action video game commercials we could find!

Whether looking at the Destiny live action game trailer, or the trailer for Sleeping Dogs, you always get a sense that you know exactly what this world is about, which is what the best video game trailers should do. Others, particularly those in the early days of gaming, don't quite know what they had, but they have a campiness to it that you just can't help but love, putting them down as some of the best live action game trailers just for history's sake. 

So take a look at our list of the greatest live action game trailers ever, and vote for your favorites! Then, check out some of our other video game lists to see what you should be playing next!
