I really think Anet has been listening to the community on the net, that CGI while epic looking will ultimately leave a bad taste in your mouth IF that game does not live up to the type of hype it CAN build. Thess Paint'esc cinimatics are great!  imo

it actually makes me want to play the game more knowing Anet is not relying on studios to produce an awsome trailer to boost sales and such. all they have shown is the painting style cinamatics,and game play. Well done.

I've always liked trailers that have actual game footage in them.  CGI's show me nothing of how the game will be. Look at SWTOR, nice CGI trailers, when you go ingame to play it's like "eww, if only it were like the trailers" they actually seemed more star war'ish than the game ever can be.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

What's nice is that you don't need CGI to make GW2 look epic - just make a regular gameplay video :)

This said, I LOVED the SW:TOR trailers, and I think Bioware should stop making games and just do a Star Wars movie with the company that did those :)

They've saved a lot of money by not making expensive CGI cutscenes and cinematic dialogue scenes. I like it. This is an MMO, after all, and I play MMOs for their gameplay.

This would've been more entertaining if you were claiming that GW2 was going to fail because they didn't have flashy CGI trailers like some of the more successful games (FFXIV and SWTOR).

But I agree, they don't need the CGI since the gameplay speaks for itself.

More money spent on the game in my view. That can only serve the customer.

Don't get me wrong I LOVE the LK intro. I just wish one day games will look like the cinematics. Blizzard will have my attention if technology ever allows developers to pull it off at a reasonable price.

For now it's more time spent on gameplay. Great for us!

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

I always thought CGI intros were kind of pointless for an MMO anyway.  They're not dynamic in any sense, better off in a single player game rather than a game that changes all the time.

The Companies name is Blur, they also did the CGI for WAR and I think DCUO

Ah yes true, I remember reading that name. Those guys are great.

They should make a new Star Wars movie with that technology and with graphics similar to the SW:TOR trailers. It would be better than those clone wars cartoons.

3 intros I got posted in my sig link are imho as good as any CGI trailer.. CGI trailers just leads to false hopes anyway heh. 

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Not a huge fan of CGI trailers to be honest. They look cool but the is usually a huge disconnect between the CGI and the actual game.

Take SWTOR for example. The CGI is absolutely epic but when you see the actual gameplay, it's like night and day.

Personally, I think that games should use in-game graphics for trailers. This way when people watch them, they'll know what the game is actually like.

This is so true, 

CGI's are so 90's, you see before any of this marvelous COD, Gears of war; assassins creed etcetera was ever possible it was nice to have CGI's because all gamers knew it was impossible to have anything remotely like that for gameplay.

now a days such is no longer the case, that is why CGI's are a big NO in todays market.

that said, here are 2 trailers that actually give me goosebumps everytime I see them, not that I'd buy any game now a days that only shows CGI and no in-game gameplay.

Cgi is a double edge sword in my gaming experience. Some have been great but then there have been some that made me think wtf. Like they couldnt find a good place to put it and just stuck them in to say they have them. The only reason i am not a fan of them in mmos is because they end up breaking the flow of my game play. I dont usually feel like the choice is my own dunno if that makes sense or not.

I'd rather save CGI for full feature films honestly.

Especially for the Warhammer: Mark of Chaos CGI intro... that needs to be a movie.

I never trust a game that uses cgi trailers instead of game footage when advertising. One of my mottos is if it doesn't have a gui/hud I don't believe it. Final fantasy is the king of bait and switch false advertising. I'm glad they don't use cgi cut scenes and the characters are all in game graphics. +1 in my book.....

Well actually, as was found out in other such thread, WoW vanilla had very good CGI especially because all you saw there, you could do ingame. Compared to SW:TOR cgi, this is really really showing the problem: one has CGI that showcases "you can do this, and this, and that, and be awesome like thim" and other is just a video, a story presentation or dunno what else, but when you're told its a "game trailer" and you look at it as such, you notice that it showcases "you cannot do this, you cannot do that, and dont even think you can do this awesome move cos you obviously cannot, no you wont look so epic, you'll look like in a generic wow clone, ..."

Personally, gameplay videos show me more than a CGI trailer ever could.  I can watch movies when I own and like the game enough to play through them and see them for myself, but thats just me.

Thats why Electronic Arts DIDN'T use gameplay trailers.

Using CGI trailers allows a company to produce false hope to get players to buy the game upon release.  They don't care if you get in-game and are disappointed that it wasn't anything like the CGI trailer, because you already purchased their product.

Its not personal, its Business.
