Ads w/ Unfitting Music
Anyone else notice this growing trend in video game advertising?
In other words: there is shrapnel flying everywhere, people dying left and right, demons bursting through floors and ceilings and it's all dubbed to softly sung alternative music...
Man that dark souls trailer is so rad like when the dude gets knocked into the air by seath
GOD I CAN'T ENJOY THIS EXPLOSION WITH BITCHES SINGING ME TO SLEEP.
Srsly, though, that trailer is great because it's like a heads up for how broken the jetpack was gonna be in MP.
Jetpacks suck, all I do is use the run plug.
Jetpacks are dominating in slayer right now.
To be fair, Gears of War has been using music like that since Gears 1 was released. Also what the Dark Souls one fits amazingly
This is true.

And IMO the Dark Souls one doesn't fit at all. That trailer is like an odd one out among the other epic-themed ones
The one for Gears fits fine. Perfectly, even. It wouldn't do to have a more immersing atmosphere, only to be cut short at a minute. It's not really a trend, it just works well for advertising.
