Gamers often complain that their trailers don't have enough gameplay in them, or too many cinematic sequences, or too many real actors pretending to be video game characters.

This clip, for Assassin's Creed III, has none of the above. Commissioned to run during Adult Swim, it's got a Robot Chicken vibe as far as the puppets go, only with none of the humour.

Still, full marks for originality!
