OriginalDustforce gameplay trailer
Reason
This video was nominated last year, but fell one vote short. This is probably the best image we have to illustrate the gameplay mechanics of a Platform game, and it has high EV in Trailer (promotion). The video is in the original 1080p resolution, allowing a good viewing experience.

  • Support Very high EV, great quality 1080p video. --Lewis Hulbert (talk) 09:42, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Support As per my previous nomination. I think this is the best piece of video games media I've uploaded to commons, and it adds significantly more to the understanding of the game than any screenshot could. - hahnchen 14:44, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Support; I think it's fantastic that we've got this, and enjoyed watching it. I certainly think that it's a worthy candidate for FP status, but let me be clear that I feel that this does not belong on the main page. I have no objection to screenshots, but I think drawing a line at trailers is reasonable. J Milburn (talk) 22:08, 3 June 2014 (UTC) (Unstruck - 08:42, 5 June 2014 (UTC))
    • This may end up having a pseudo-RFC to see if it should be run, if I'm still managing POTD, but I personally think there are some benefits to Wikipedia: having this media or similar on the main page may drive other companies to donate higher-quality images or videos. If that happens... everyone wins. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 16:53, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
      • I don't want to derail the discussion here, but, anyway- As you know, I certainly think that video games have a place on Wikipedia (and on the main page!) but I think that it's probably the case that we cross a line when we literally run a recent advert on the main page. We're hopefully going to have lots of video game FPs soon anyway, so it's not like we'd have to run this for variety's sake. J Milburn (talk) 23:28, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment: I hate to do this, but I feel the need to ask about the music. Does it still belong to the musician, in which case it'd need a separate release (while it's CC, it's not a Wikipedia-compatible license) or does it belong to the game's producer? J Milburn (talk) 22:14, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
    • This is covered in the OTRS ticket. The sound/music rights for the trailer are covered by the terms of the license. - hahnchen 23:18, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
      • OTRS member comment: It's not ideal; we're taking the developer's word that the composer released their part (as opposed to having an email from the composer as well as one from the developer), but yes, it's covered by that ticket. Sven Manguard Wha? 21:27, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
        • The developer is the composer in this case. - hahnchen 23:28, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
          • You're right. I didn't notice that. This is all good then. Pinging J Milburn. Sven Manguard Wha? 04:10, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
            • Thanks, I hadn't made that connection- I had a look at the ticket, but that wasn't obvious. Happy to take your word for it- reinstating my support. J Milburn (talk) 08:42, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - This file is technically sound and has fantastically high EV. Aside from the uses stated above, the infobox image for Dustforce is extracted from the video, and I am using the file in an on-wiki project (not yet announced), where it is shown as an example of how video game files are used on the project.
