I would have just wept openly for four minutes.
“Prepare for Blizzard’s new game...inspired by a mod for one of their old games, that created an entirely new genre of game that got more popular than any of their other games, causing Blizzard to develop a new game ripping off the other games that ripped off their old game.” Ah, the wonders of video game development!
They certainly did their research on Hearthstone streamers.
The latest Honest Game Trailer focuses on gaming's favorite high-speed collision of universes, Kingdom Hearts. As with most Honest Trailers, the Disney-Square Enix mash-up comes out a pile of twisted metal (and cartoon duck bills). But the trailer also raises a good question: where's our Pixar world?
Not just the game, but the community as well, in a funny but justifiable way.
Naughty Dog's melodramatic post-apocalyptic survival game wowed almost everybody when it came out last year. Will the notoriously picky folks behind Honest Game Trailers manage to find fault with The Last of Us? Shh…. Clickers!
One would think that crafting an Honest Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy would be difficult. But perhaps our love for this movie has made us blind to some of its problems. Oh, who are we kidding, we love you GOTG and your lengthy technobabble dialogue!
Okay, look. As much as I love Smash, even I can admit the entire premise of the game is ridiculous. Nevermind all the tensions about how one should "actually" play such a silly (but amazing) game.
When a normal game gets the Smosh Games Honest Trailers treatment I just point and laugh along with the video. Having been a semi-permanent resident of Azeroth for the past decade, the Honest Trailer for World of Warcraft makes me proud to have been a part of this glorious nonsense.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is basically Terminator 2 with mutants. Screen Junkies explains the plot similarities: "An indestructible bad ass gets sent back into time without his clothes to protect a vulnerable young man with long hair who will one day become a leader and stop a shape shifter from destroying the…
We all know by now that the Souls games can be hard and painful and luckily Smosh Games' latest Honest Trailer is not just a clip about that. It rather makes fun of neglected topics such as the community, the art direction... and the games' connection to Cat Mario.
"The storytelling of Halo, the scope of World of Warcraft and the co-operative fun of Borderlands — may eventually get patched in." Thus begins the brutally Honest Trailer for Destiny, "The video game equivalent of a beautiful mansion full of cheap Ikea furniture."
It's really hard to say anything negative about Team Fortress 2.
If I came away with anything from this spoiler-heavy Honest Game Trailer for the Mass Effect trilogy, it's that I would have probably enjoyed the games more had they been titled "Battletoad and the Space Jesus."
"From Notch, Sweden's biggest one-hit wonder since Peter Bjorn and John comes a game like no other — unless you count LEGOs, Lincoln Logs, Mega Bloks, K'nex, Erector sets or playing outside."
Smosh Games gives everyone's second-favorite bathroom game the Honest Trailers treatment, brutalizing Kings' innocent candy-swapping game, which never did nothing to no one.
"From the developers of The Elder Scrolls, Elder Scrolls HD and Elder Scrolls with Guns comes a game so immersive you forget to eat, sleep and make friends because you're too busy eating, sleeping and making friends." Sounds about right.
