    Fan-written Trailers- read, inspire, suggest!

    We’ve all dreamt of some games that never get made, expansions, elaborations or just a different version then what we got or will get. For any fandom I’m familiar with, I might be inspired to write a trailer for that and I wouldn’t want to take up three or more topics for what are pretty much one-shots, for now at least. I got real inspired for the first two, so I just went and posted them. Criticism is appreciated, hate isn’t.

    In comparison with real video trailers, these trailers can appear slow and bland, but I’ll try to add music pieces and vivid descriptions (so far that I can do that) do give you an idea of an ‘epic’ trailer I thought up. Hopefully, it comes across as epic, along with the future game.

    Fandom: Mass Effect

    Subject: Mass Effect 4?

    ‘The First Contact war has been going on for three months now and the ruthless lizardheads have conquered Shanxi. Humanity puts a valiant fight against the alien invaders until one day all hostilities are put to a halt…’

    Several soldiers are eyeing the slopes of the barren world they are fighting on, looking for any enemies. Suddenly, a small ship that is without question not one of theirs tries to land and one of the soldiers asks their commanding officer:

    “Should we shoot it?”

    The officer shakes his head and watches as the ship lands no more than a few yards away. Its technology seems quite advanced. Out of the strange vehicle a blue-skinned alien woman appears in unusual stretch-fabric fashion and says:

    “Ready to climb aboard?”

    Cue music. As there is no confirmed piece that fits Mass Effect 4 perfectly, I tried to select something that came quite close. ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeY_L5EDLGs ; epic pieces (that aren’t already attributed to existing works) are greatly appreciated in the comments.

    The soldiers jump from left to right to look out the windows as they enter a lush environment set on a rotating white structure that looks like a giant acropolis. The commanding officer remains calm and asks the blue woman who is conversing with her pilot, a blue woman as well:

    “Where are you taking us, Miss…”

    The blue woman smiles and says: “I’m not exactly a woman.”

    ‘The first human sets foot on the citadel…’

    The commanding officer steps off the ship and looks around at the buzzing of what seems like a dozen races.

    “Wow,” he says.

    ‘And makes quite a splash.’

    The commanding officer gets knocked over by one of the lizardheads.

    “Watch it, you… a human?!” it yells before lunging as the blue woman intervenes.

    ‘Their alien adversaries stand in their way.’

    “The Turian Hierarchy will never allow this!” a ‘turian’ yells in a council room with other races as well as the commanding officer who’s there as a guest.

    ‘But humanity will prove…’

    A spaceship gets attacked by an off-screen assailant as they engage in a devastating space battle.

    ‘That they…’

    “Everyone’s unconscious, what do we do now, captain Hudson?” a soldier asks.

    ‘Are going to…’

    “We stand and fight,” the commanding officer named Hudson responds.

    ‘Leave their mark…’

    In a third-person perspective captain Hudson picks up a weapon that looks far more advanced than his own sidearm and proceeds to shoot at something that was sneaking up on him. Lights flash as he fights his way through the corridors. In the next scene, he brings down a mech almost singlehandedly and its pilot asks: “What are you?”

    ‘And the universe will never be the same.’

    “The best humanity has,” Captain Hudson retorts, shooting out a strange clip from the gun he just mastered.

    ‘Mass Effect: Humanity’s Wake’.

    ‘Guesses’: it sees the rise of humanity and details how they went from newbie race to an unexpected force on the field that shouldn’t be underestimated as they rapidly expand, learn tactics and expand on technology and add to it in a never before seen rate and they prove their value in battles and other conflicts, but with an overarching plot (NOT the Reapers).

    Fandom: Bioshock

    Subject: Next game? teaser

    The trailer begins with: Beatles’ Blackbird: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzuvbgKpzQE loud enough to resonate, but not ‘scream’, a panning of the ‘camera’ over the landscape of the moon lighting up in the sunlight as we zoom in on the big blue Earth. It isn’t noticeable at first, but soon a light appears between the camera and the Earth that starts closing in. Then the viewpoint is on the inside of a vessel from which we see the Moon becoming larger at an alarming rate before the vessel crashes. From the crashed vessel we see a shining city that we didn’t see before in the last moon shot and mechanical bipedal machines close in on the vessel.

    Cue I wanna hold your hand also by the Beatles. But much subtler (couldn’t find a slower version that people would say would do the original justice): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_csEEI4PFE

    A white flash brings us to presumably Earth where young people are lying on the ground, scattered with plenty of debris visible, among which there are broken signs saying ‘equal rights’, ‘women and blacks, we were made equal’. A bleeding female hand grasps a male hand as the screen darkens… Two arms, both covered in a strange material reach for one another while they are separated by the split screen. The material morphs into a weapon on one side and a blue-arcing deformity on the other. The two screens fly apart to reveal ‘Bioshock: Opposites’.

    Guesses: The moon as a setting, women’s rights, mecha’s, strange space suits and technology (and powers) and the man/woman conflict.
    Completed:

    CHA-05: Teenage robot with organic skin starting war of sabotage and love.

    Pokémen: Trainers changed. Pokémon, then 'Pokémen'. Cure lies with villain?

    Rapture: House of Broken Mirrors: group of adolescents surviving, transforming...

    Fandom: Bioshock

    Subject: Bioshock: Opposites trailer

    (My apologies for any errors, I don’t have the extensive access to historical sources or the budget for the moment)

    Cue Hey Jude: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDdI7GhZSQA

    In a setting that looks early 70’s at most, several signs show a stylistic picture of the moon topped with several structures that shine light into space. A tagline under it says: ‘Come to Luna today, the Earth man’s paradise!’

    You are walking down the street with a woman with piercing eyes that nonetheless smiles at you as she grabs your arm. Several men tip their hat at her as she wears a dress that is considered appropriate and even a bit conservative for the time and she acts a bit too perfect. The camera shakes and turns its ‘head’ as you feel a bit uneasy. She calms him as you both round the corner and you suddenly see a whole mass of people with protesting signs saying things like ‘Women’s rights’, ‘Black or yellow, all treated fair by the law’, ‘You stay in the kitchen’ and many more as two women standing on a wooden box are rallying the crowd as they are standing around in the main street in clothing that is as provocative as possible. You turn to your wife as she strips her dress in half and reveals a similar clothing style underneath and goes to protest with the others.

    The protest is violently torn apart as an explosion occurs and you are knocked unconscious. The music stops right before the explosion. After a brief cut to black you wake up with a dazed gaze and look around for your wife.

    Cue Help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ApstMKNEMI

    You crawl around on all fours before you find her hand under a protest sign, now both covered in dirt and specks of blood. The camera abruptly shifts as you look around to anyone that’s still alive and it syncs with ‘Help’ in the song.

    The song continues as you are arrested, put in a pod and shot off, leaving your blue planet Earth behind… The song becomes silent.

    ‘Are you a man or a woman?’

    You wake up as a mecha reminiscent of the Apollo 11 spacecraft reaches out to you as a helmet appears around you.

    In the background it’s first very faint but then it turns up, cue Here comes the sun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj1AesMfIf8

    You are brought to the Luna City with shining lights where you are greeted by mustached men who wear stylized space suit versions of the contemporary fashion, which seems odd seeing as that would be the last thing you’d think about when living on the moon which doesn’t have air. You look at your arms which now also have such a space suit. You get shown shots of the idyllic moon city that is a mixture of round moonbase windows showing the landscape and a conservative but welcoming interior of public establishments of the time.

    You are understandably freaked out when one of the maids that is also treated as a third-rate citizen by the male customers looks exactly like your wife.

    Then you are treated by several shots accompanied by Let it be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0714IbwC3HA

    You find yourself radiating your space suit arm with a strange device that has a radiation warning on it, then firing a long tentacle at a man’s head before shooting another with a gun that forms from your other space suit arm, you are attacked by a mecha as you are clearly wearing a helmet as you see the glass and possibly the environment in a darker hue. An enemy you shoot is suddenly enveloped in a flood of morphing fluid.

    “What’s going on here,” you say.

    “It’s time to decide who’s the stronger sex,” says a woman before aiming her gun at you.

    Cue Hey Jude: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDdI7GhZSQA

    In a setting that looks early 70’s at most, several signs show a stylistic picture of the moon topped with several structures that shine light into space. A tagline under it says: ‘Come to Luna today, the Earth man’s paradise!’

    You are walking down the street with a kind man with brown eyes that nonetheless looks very worried at you as you grab his arm. Several men tip their hat at you as you wave your hands and turn to greet them like a very proper lady. You look at your husband who shakes his head, he seems rather uneasy. You calm him as both of you round the corner and you suddenly see a whole mass of people with protesting signs saying things like ‘Women’s rights’, ‘Black or yellow, all treated fair by the law’, ‘You stay in the kitchen’ and many more as two women standing on a wooden box are rallying the crowd as they are standing around in the main street in clothing that is as provocative as possible.

    In the background it’s first very faint but then it turns up, cue Here comes the sun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj1AesMfIf8

    You are brought to the Luna City with shining lights where you are greeted by mustached men who wear stylized space suit versions of the contemporary fashion, which seems odd seeing as that would be the last thing you’d think about when living on the moon which doesn’t have air. They gesture for you to pick up a plate and get to work. You look at your arms which now also have such a space suit that looks like that of a maid working in a restaurant or cafe. You get shown shots of the idyllic moon city that is a mixture of round moonbase windows showing the landscape and a conservative but not so welcoming, darker interior of public establishments of the time.

    When one of your customers grabs you by the arm for rejecting his advances and everyone just looks on amused, you also see that he looks exactly like your husband, before he ‘treats’ you like a ‘female servant’ rather than a respected fellow citizen.

    Then you are treated by several shots accompanied by Yesterday: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNnaxGFO18o

    You find yourself radiating your space suit arm with a strange device that has a radiation warning on it, then firing a long tentacle at a man’s head before shooting another with a gun that forms from your other space suit arm, you are attacked by a mecha as you are clearly wearing a helmet as you see the glass and possibly the environment in a darker hue.

    Edit: link should be fixed.
    Fandom: Pokémon

    Subject: a thrilling and complex plot, action and characterization based story/game that isn’t super dark and edgy?

    Cue music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exl5W4PLcew (credit to the original makers and the re-orchestrator?)

    (‘Translated’ from the original Japanese ‘version’)

    ‘A game that nobody expected…’

    ‘In a beloved genre of old…’

    A shadow of a boy (soon revealed to be a silhouette) is seen running along with a creature through one dark corridor after another until he bursts through two doors and literally headbutts a taller man’s silhouette who falls to the floor as the ‘lights’ go on.

    “You will not harm this Pokémon!” says the boy as his Pikachu appears alongside him, its cheeks crackling with electricity.

    Description of the man (pause music if you read as in the actual trailer, you only see the man for a few shots of less than a second, but the description is of course much longer): A long, dark red jacket with a black leather vest visible, black long pants, very short black hair, sinister blue shades and perpetually grinding his teeth out of annoyance.

    Description of the boy: Blue buttoned up long jacket, white sleeves, black pants, red fingerless gloves, golden eyes, a slightly tan complexion and on top of black spiky hair a blue hat with white trim and a green Pokéball symbol. (design pending)

    “Who are you…” the man says before he turns to see that the huge bird Pokémon he was holding with crackling arcs of energy has broken free and sets the room ablaze.

    “Ho-oh…” the boy says in awe.

    “You idiot kid, you ruined all my plans!” the man says before his expression turns into a face-wide sinister grin.

    The boy gets ‘cast’ into darkness. As a lock falls in place, he wakes up and discovers he’s in a small stone cell with a strange looking lock.

    “Prepare for the torment of these ruins, Ash Ketchum. Only the elements can get you out, your rash actions will get you nowhere!” the man says through a glowing stone in the upper corner of the cell.

    Predictably, Ash starts ramming the door with his shoulder and putting his weight into it as the man sighs through the glowing stone.

    Ash looks down at his fingerless gloved hands and says: “The elements huh?”

    ‘Be ready for the puzzles and action of a dazzling trap…’

    Ash’s hand gets surrounded by a blue hue as he looks up.

    ‘By a more devious opponent than Ash has ever faced.’

    In the angled high view of room after room of platforming puzzles, Ash jumps from one stone tablet to the others and puts his hand in Aura Locks before commanding his Pikachu to “Volt Tackle!” into another lock before the door to the next room opens.

    “You’ll never crack it, you’ll never meddle with my plans again!” the man says.

    Ash makes use of his impressive Mankey climbing abilities, vines and wits to solve puzzle after puzzle until he arrives at a puzzle room with a gargantuan amount of locks.

    “Who’s going to help you now?” the man says before laughing ominously.

    “Someone called for help?” says a girl with long brown hair.

    Descrption: Red aviator jacket that resembles a dress with its length, elaborate red bandana with a white Pokéball symbol, high brown boots, blue eyes and a widened cool pose.

    One after another, older versions of May, Misty, Dawn, Bianca(?) helps Ash through the levels along with Pikachu.

    “You’re… too late,” the man says in the shadows as Ash arrives.

    A Ho-Oh roars as its flames burns everything around it.

    ‘Pokémon’s Ash: Return of the Aura Hero’.

    ‘PA:ROTAH, coming soon.’
