Don't know about games trailer, but the 'Cradle to Grave' add for the PS2 has to be one of the best console adds!

Um..firstly it doesn't have any monkeys in it.
Secondly, it completely failed to convey the correct product it was advertising to you (xbox).

What would Alan Sugar say?

In that case Alan Sugar would probably say 'Bugg@r'! ;)

Yip, style over content then. I remember the add, forgot the product...

Still one of the best console adds I've seen, still no monkeys though!

You may be wrong.

Have you tried watching that ad (Xbox : Cradle to Grave) in slow motion??

There may be a monkey in it with a subliminal message!

Best game trailer must be defined. If you just want a trailer featuring no actual gameplay, then anything with a million dollars worth of cgi could be :-

HellGate : London

WOW : Burning Crusade

Motorstorm Pacific Rift

Or, do you mean actual featured gameplay :-

God of War

Gears of War

Marvel Ultimate Alliance

Metal Gear Solid

Or, that rare thing the Game TV Commercial Trailer :-

Mortal Kombat II ad

God of War Chains of Olympus Psp ad

Juiced girl strip ad.... gets my vote, along with the MKII tv ad.

Or, the Holy Grail, the Game Movie that's just a trailer for the game :-

Tomb Raider

Mortal Kombat

Final Fantasy

Doom

Dungeons and Dragons

Yes, that trailer for Pole Position is indeed a classic, but is always beaten by a monkey with maracas at your door step.
