Top Videos of the Week: 2/14/2011 – 2/20/2011

The Dead Island re-announcement trailer was by far the Internet sensation of the week, and already it is causing everyone to over hype the game even when the trailer shows absolutely NOTHING about how it actually plays. It’s a stunning trailer — definitely one of the best game trailers I’ve seen. But it is just a trailer, and honestly, I don’t see the game being able to live up to the high bar the trailer sets. Hopefully Techland proves me wrong on that.

Here at VGBlogger, however, the trailer of the week was the epic Marvel vs. Capcom 3 launch trailer, clocking in at nearly 1,500 views. New videos for Bulletstorm, Mortal Kombat, F.E.A.R. 3, Killzone 3, Lord of the Rings: War in the North and NASCAR The Game 2011 got plenty of viewer love too, so you’ll find all of those down below. My personal picks for the week go to the Portal 2 Valentine’s Day trailer, the Tactics Ogre PSP launch trailer and the new Alice: Madness Returns teaser, but sadly none of those made much of an impression.
