Neil Blomkamp, director of District 9, was originally slated to be the director of a Halo movie with Peter Jackson producing. This is actually a commercial, and two internet shorts cut together to make an absolutely amazing short film that takes place in the Halo universe.
Saving Private Ryan was a little bit (and sorry for using this term) of a game-changer as far as war-reality went in film. I mention that because this compiled series of shorts is the Saving Private Ryan of video game trailers/commercials.
Nothing got us more pumped to buy Halo 3 than this awesome freaking commercial. Sure, the new ones are great, but they're a little THX1138... this is the Halo universe in realistic, raw form, like we'd never seen before. As a collection, this is the best live-action commercial for a video game ever made.

Taking the whole "realistic recreation of what being an actual character in the game would be like" angle to a whole new level, the Halo franchise has added a lot of personal flavor to their ongoing series of unbelievably well-made, well thought out and inspiring trailers.
Continuing to be the Saving Private Ryan of the game trailers/commercials genre, the Halo: Reach commercial brings you through a Captain-Americaesque process of super solider creation. It flashes to a Spartan's family and humanizes the characters that we all spend countless hours sticking, laughing at and teabagging, adding a depth to the characters in the game that's hard to find in even the Masterchief character himself.
Wonderful, thought-provoking and clean, this is a great commercial for a video game, but kind of a great example of an EXTREMELY inefficient super-solider creation program. They could EASILY fit like 30 of those guys in that room.
- 4Up 21Down 9The Ratchet and Clank franchise did a great service to us all in keeping with the style of bringing the ridiculousness of the weapons in the game into real life.BUY @ AMAZON
Every commercial would end with "One of ___ weapons not meant for this world", displaying how absolutely awesome every one of these gadgets and weapons would be if they actually existed.
Very few things got us more excited to play this game than these weapons. In a lot of games, you're looking for the end of a story or a different way to play with your friends, but for THIS game you look forward to one thing above all: the weapons. The muthaluvin weapons.
