As another year goes by, it’s time to take a look back at the various game releases and see which game created the most excitement. One way to determine this is by reviewing which game trailer was the most-viewed on YouTube.
The list of 10 most-viewed video game trailers for 2016 includes the reveal and launch trailers, and especially highlights those that have gotten the most attention. Battlefield 1 gathered over 49M total views for its release trailer, which earned it the top spot, but other titles such as DOOM, Watch Dogs 2, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and others also got their spots on the list, as well as a few surprises.
Compiled by YouTube based on the total number of views, this list only includes games released in 2016, so it excludes trailers that came out this year but were for games that won’t be released until 2017 or later (that means God of War and Spider-Man PS4 are not on it).
