video game trailer best e3 expo 2013

If you thought the video games you play today were cool, in the immortal worlds of Bachman–Turner Overdrive, "baby, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet."

The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo ("E3") recently wrapped up in Los Angeles, where video game journalists, analysts and retailers got their hands on hundreds of tomorrow's games today.

Since you need to be in the industry to attend, how can a gamer get a taste of what’s to come? Video game trailers, of course.

The following is a just a small sampling of some of the best to come out of the 2013 E3 Expo – but please be aware some of these clips may be inappropriate for young eyes.

Hideo Kojima and Konami are back with a new installment in the best-selling franchise, which helped kick off the Xbox One press event. Here’s the extended cut of the trailer.

Want to see why The Witcher is one of the most underrated role-playing game (RPG) franchises of today? Check out this official E3 trailer to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, from CD Projekt:

16. Halo

While it doesn’t reveal much at all, this trailer to the next Halo game had the crowd roaring at the Xbox One presser:

17. Sunset Overdrive

From Insomniac Games, Sunset Overdrive is a stylized open-world action game. The story involves a catastrophic event that has left your city overrun by mutants.

18. Dying Light

While this zombie game didn’t track much buzz from the 2013 E3 Expo, take a look at this fast-paced trailer. Run. Boy, run:

19. Project Spark

One of the more unique games of E3, Microsoft's Project Spark lets you build your own video games using the controller and Kinect – and then share your creations:

20. Beyond: Two Souls

While it’s the second E3 to feature Quantic Dream’s upcoming adventure game, this new trailer shows more gameplay, story elements and near-photorealistic graphics (including its heroine, played by Ellen Page):

    • Hmm, maybe this is why Trump doesn't want to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner

      On Saturday, Donald Trump made history as only the third president to bow out of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. And while this has much to do with Trump's ever-worsening battle with the press and his constant struggle to book talent, it's also worth remembering that, to be frank, Trump probably has another reason for ditching: He usually gets clobbered at these things. So, in the interest of, uh, elucidation, please enjoy these videos of Trump getting roasted at the 2011 and 2016 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Better yet, enjoy Trump's mirthless reactions. They're uncomfortable to watch, but extremely worth it. SEE ALSO: An exclusive look at Donald Trump's Twitter drafts for Oscar night First, here's President Obama clapping back at Trump's relentless "birther" conspiracy-mongering. The Lion King is involved. Next, observe Seth Meyers insisting that Trump must be running for president as a "joke." Trump does not smile. And here's Obama ripping on The Apprentice.  Finally, here's a delightful compilation of all the best Trump burns from the 2016 dinner.  A Larry Wilmore highlight: "Yeah, Trump's campaign is inspiring ... mass violence." (Trump did not attend that one, BTW.) So, there you have it. While we're not sure about the future of this year's event, we'll always have those stunners to fall back on.  And you can always zoom in on this cursed image while listening to "Sound of Silence."
