Crysis 3 trailer deploys ZZ Top

An earlier Crysis 3 trailer wanted to inspire awkward feelings of awe and arousal for one of the FPS's guns, apparently. Now a new commercial wants to spark similar desires for its protagonist, with a little help from ZZ Top. Boys want to be him, I guess, and girls want to be with him, probably. Every girl's crazy about a sharp-dressed man, after all.

I've often remarked that the first-person shooter genre is severely lacking in smarm, cockiness, and other brosome qualities, so it's good to see EA taking steps to resolve this critical flaw.

Made by Crytek, Crysis 3 comes to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next Tuesday, February 19.

      It failed to make me care about the game but made me think about the crazy mad drummer.

      Awful "trailer" catering to 12-year-olds.

      I actually liked this trailer, it shows a sense of humor and that they're not taking themselves too seriously.

        That was evident when they made a trailer about how we should salivate over a gun that fires 10,000 rounds per minute.

      I get the distinct feeling that Crytek wants me to not buy their game.
