Well, we did have some effective trailers in recent times.

The Asylum has a really good one. It really draws you IN.

The Whispered World has a very strong trailer too, though people who played the game complain it is too spoilerish.

And look up what a one-man indie studio has managed to cook up for the cyberpunkish Gemini Rue.

But the old times were the best. Nothing beats the perfect delivery of the final line in this one, or the TV commercial for the long-forgotten adventure game Obsidian.
