Watch: The Graphic New Last of Us 2 Trailer, Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man, and the Best of the Rest From PlayStation Live

Here are the best (or at least the most memorable) trailers from PlayStation Live at Paris Games Week.

Sony put on a pretty lively show at Paris Games Week. Then they concluded it with graphic torture, including a young woman's arm getting broken with a hammer. Yikes.

The Last of Us 2 certainly had the most... uh... memorable trailer of the bunch, though it wasn't the only game Sony showed off. God of War, Spider-Man, and Shadow of the Colossus also got new treatments.

First, The Last of Us: Part 2, if you can stomach it.

Yep, Naughty Dog just casually dropped a moment on par with the most infamous scene in Misery. Yeesh. It's a moment on par with the first game's "shotgun to the face" trailer; and yet, as Caty observed in Slack, the best parts of Last of Us have nothing to do with violence. In any case, hopefully the actual game is better than the trailer.

While Last of Us 2 definitely dominated the show, for better or worse, Sony had some new announcements as well. Most notable among them was Ghost of Tsushima, a very interesting looking samurai game from Sucker Punch.

This is a very early trailer, so we don't know much about it. But Sucker Punch has an excellent pedigree, and there's every indication that this will be an awesome new exclusive for the PlayStation 4.

Next, there's God of War, which gives us a glimpse of a monster that can eat souls, as well as a bit of a real-time combat.

Looks like you'll be using the environment a lot in this one, which is always fun. God of War will be out in early 2018.

Shadow of the Colossus had this incredible looking glimpse of the graphical improvements being made to the new version.

The way the horse moves... the sand of the desert... this looks like the version of Shadow of the Colossus we've been dreaming of. Just incredible.

And finally, Spider-Man gets this fun new trailer that gives us glipse of Kingpin, Norman Osborn, and other famous baddies from the comics.

Like God of War, Spider-Man will be out early next year.

Plenty of other games got trailers as well. Here's a quick rundown for you:

Monster Hunter World

Detroit: Become Human

Spelunky 2

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris

LocoRoco 2: Remastered

Most of these games will be out next year. Stay tuned for our full recap of the entire conference!
