yeah, I didn't like the trailers either, and it looks like if anything they are turning off lots of people. However they are giving the wrong message, it seems Bioware is worried that they aren't making enough of an impression of the game so they are getting desperate.
from another article:
"The point of the above is that Bioware games don?t always look that good on the surface: ultra-violence, trope-heavy plots, conveniently all-female alien races, tacked-on sex scenes, et cetera. But once you get past that surface, once you get to actually read what?s written and poke around the world they?ve created, there is very often an excellent meaty, highly replayable game on the inside. And that is why I?m willing to give Dragon Age: Origins the benefit of the doubt. Say what you will about Bioware, but if Dragon Age: Origins is half as good as the Baldur?s Gate series, it will still be one of the best fantasy RPGs in a long time."
I guess I'm supporting it because they are actually the Pixar of the video game world - they hit home run after home run.
It's a shame to let some rookie marketing deprive people of experiencing that.
