How game trailers are inspired by the world of film

Games and movies_ despite being two separate kinds of media_ have a lot in ordinary_ and the point where they intersect the most is in their trailers.

Recently I wrote an article almost the deviate of dark_ confusing cinematic trailers_ and where they sit in the hype cycle that constitutes a games pre-release marketing campaign. But cinematic trailers themselves are a conundrum. Theyre both filmed and edited to resemble mini-movies_ and frequently can be brief films themselves.
