Should a Zombie Game Trailer Make You Cry?

One of the main reasons why this blog hasn't been updated in a while is that our family has been going through a difficult time with Social Services and our roles as Foster Carers.

Anyway, with the back drop of all those emotional issues I have just watched the following trailer for Dead Island, a zombie consol game.


After about 30 seconds I totally forgot it was a game trailer, was computer generated and involved mythical creatures.  I was totally caught up in the story telling.  Then with the "found footage" bit at the end I realised some dust had just blown into my eyes making them water a bit.

At this point in the Oscar Award cycle, this is getting my vote for Best Short Animation!

What do you think?  Is it really that sad or do I just need to go for some therapy?
