Cancelled Games You Wish Were Released

#1NintendologicalPosted 1/24/2013 1:39:23 AM
I'll start off with my top three

- Starcraft Ghost: This game was a promising stealth action game with a fairly advanced graphics engine for the time. I had an opportunity to play the beta demo at E3. Even though the game was receiving quite a bit of hype, Blizzard opted not to release the title.

- B.C.: Peter Molyneux games are often overhyped, but rarely does he create a franchise that fails to entertain and captivate audiences. B.C. had the makings of an intriguing franchise with a deep gameplay engine revolving around hunting and tribalism. B.C. remains one of gaming's great "what if..." titles.

- American McGee's Oz: American McGee may not be the most prominent of game designers, but his take on Alice in Wonderland has earned a place in gaming history. McGee's planned effort to give a similar treatment to the Wizard of Oz never saw the light of day, which is quite a shame given the recent resurgence of popularity for the American classic in the form Wicked, and more recently, the upcoming film, Oz the Great. McGee's Oz would have been a boon for rounding out the return of the beloved tale.

So, anyone with a sense of gaming culture and history care to contribute? Perhaps a nod for True Fantasy Live or B.C. or Vultures?

Yes please.

And while their at it, I want Red (American McGee version of Red Riding Hood) too (don't know if it was cancelled, still being worked on, or if it was just rumored, but I do remember seeing concept art).

Scarface for Xbox360, The Sopranos for Xbox360, Knights of the Old Republic 3,

I'm sure plenty more exist that I was excited about but wound up either not getting released on 360, never seeing a US date or just flat out being cancelled.

Also Kingdom under fire 2, seems like it might come out in March but only for PC/PS3
