    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...

    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.

    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

    Yeah, true. It is a growing trend. I think it started all the way back with Silent Hill, TBH.

    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.
