The 7 Worst Video Game Release Date Delays Of 2012

Lisa Eadicicco:

Video game delays are nothing new, but 2012 has certainly seen its share of disappointing setbacks. From title launches, to DLCs and full console releases, gamers shouldn't hold their expectation too high for some of these release dates. Enthusiasts have gotten a preview of what's to come with conferences such as E3 2012, the EA Summer Showcase, and Gamescom 2012, which kicks off tomorrow. But for some launches, the work that goes into crafting the final product may take developers and publishers longer than they projected.

Which of these delays bothers you the most? Check out our list of seven setbacks that have been announced for 2012. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, BioShock: Infinite, Culture, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dawnguard DLC, PC, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Tomb Raider 2013, Wii U, Xbox 360)

The Last story is the worst delay. I can get over a delay that lasts a few quarters(you just forget about it until about two weeks until it releases) but The last Story has been pushed back about 4 times since it was announced to arrive in America this year. Not this week, it will release next week. Sorry, this was changed to next month etc.. The smaller waits are always the worst.
