So at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the video game companies are all showing off their coolest new stuff. But what’s the coolest of the cool? Of course, if you’re a fan of Gears of War, then the Gears of War 4 trailer is bound to be cool—to you. But we looked through all the trailers at YouTube.com/E3 and a passel of others, and here are the ones that smacked us in the mouth. A couple are sequels, but most are brand new and intriguing as hell.
For Honor (XBox One, PS4, PC)
Pure axe-chopping, sword-splintering, bone-crushing Viking-vs.-Knights mayhem.
Doom (XBox One, XBox 360, PS4, PS3, PC)
Taking blood-spatter and flying body parts to a new level.
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst (XBox One, PS4, PC)
The future is here, and you are its slave.
Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4)
The future is here, and everything’s broken.
You’re a hero, you’re mentally ill. Call us crazy, but it looks pretty cool.
Low-key, but intriguing. Somebody’s in your tower.
Unravel (XBox One, PS4, PC)
You’re made of yarn and people say you’re adorable. Of course you are—you’re made of yarn!
The Last Guardian (PS4)
Kinda weird, kinda cute, kinda like nothing we’ve ever seen. (Not counting the time we saw it in 2009. Still looks cool, though.)
