Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
The MGS2 trailers were incredible for their time. The visuals, physics, AI and particle effects were mind blowing. The trailers were so good that MGS2 became a killer app for the PS2 before the game even released... And a Dreamcast killer too, sadly.
And that was before even getting to the best part of the trailers: Kojima pulled off the biggest troll in gaming history.
Raiden was hidden from the trailers, and replaced by Snake in the trailer footage. No one knew the existence of Raiden until the game came out. Some gamers were mad about the switcheroo, while others enjoyed the unexpected twist.
The Last of Us 2 tried to pull off the same trick nearly 20 years later, but failed when the switcheroo got leaked before release.
