The Best Videos of E3

Round Up: All the must-see movies from the show

E3's great but so much happens in just three days that it's all too easy to miss a few announcements and debut trailers. One of the best things about E3 is seeing new games, so we've sifted through the deluge and picked out the best videos of this year's show. Don't forget to hit the HD button!

Super Mario Galaxy 2
This is one that'll have every Mario fan reaching for the tissues as they spot new gameplay touches that Nintendo always cram into gameplay trailers. Or was that just us...?

Metroid: Other M
One of the biggest (and not leaked) surprises of E3 was Nintendo's collaboration with Team Ninja on a new Metroid game. The cool thing about this trailer was that it wasn't obvious it was a new Metroid.

Assassin's Creed 2
The trailer was pretty but this clip features some great in-game footage and impressions from Official PlayStation Magazine.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Most developers use CGI video to do cinematic trailers for their games (cough... Square). But Naughty Dog puts two fingers up at that and achieves the same movie-worthy effects in real-time.

Splinter Cell: Conviction
This is shocking. It's like Sam Fisher's been playing God of War in his spare time and learned a few tricks from Kratos. Like how to smash a man's skull in. If the game is half as good as this footage makes it look, Splinter Cell is truly back.

Lost Planet 2
This trailer deserves a mention for visual splendour alone. Will it be better than the original? We don't know. But we do know you wish your girlfriend looked this good.

Split/Second
A shock entry, this. But give it a watch before you skip to the Alan Wake video. Seriously. Racers trigger disasters like plane crashes, toppling skyscrapers and entire sections of track exploding. More thrilling than firing a blue shell? We'll see.

Alan Wake
Possibly the most atmospheric, gripping cinematic of the show, the Alan Wake trailer took just over a minute to thrust Remedy's game to the top of our most wanted list. Shame it's taking them AGES to make it. Spring 2010 is the light at the end of a long tunnel.

Halo 3: ODST
A bit like the Super Mario Galaxy 2 trailer, this will have Halo followers bouncing in their seats. Floaty jump-shots, pinpoint accurate grenade throwing and rocket launcher ownage is coming this September.

Heavy Rain: The Origami Killer
Is it a game or a movie? Is QTE old? Does playable character Madison Paige need longer hair and bouncier boob physics? So many questions. E3 marked the second time we've seen HR running and we want it like a kebab after a booze up.

Project Natal
If Natal turns out to be half of what this video would have you believe, then it's going to be one of the most exciting developments since videogame tech began. But only if it actually delivers.

Left 4 Dead 2
Internet ranting aside Left 4 Dead 2 sounds awesome, and if you've spent as many hours on the first game as we have you'll be excited about the new features in this trailer.

PSP Go Hands-on
Sony finally coughed up the goods after months of speculation and rumours. It's a slick bit of kit though, and Official PlayStation Magazine got all touchy feely with it in front of a camera lens.
