5 Recent Games That Should Have Been Delayed

Nerdacy: "It seems that ever since this new console generation began it has been marred by delays and re-releases. I’m not saying every game should be delayed in order to achieve its full potential, but rather not announced until the developer team is sure they’re giving us a truly finished product. Though, there are games that should have been delayed. Here are a few of those games." (Battlefield 4, Grand Theft Auto Online, Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Wolfenstein is brilliant. I'd rather see a great and complete single player game like they did then have tacked on multi-player.

GTA V and Online was perfectly fine. But, it was the end of the console cycle so they were pushing the hardware to the max.

Watch Dogs was a case of a game that set expectation too high and didn't live up to them.

BF4 deserved a delay. Titanfall should've been delayed to get a deeper campaign (If you can call it that). Thief should've been delayed to improve the game. EA's NBA Live 14 should've been delayed to improve the game. MGS V Ground Zeros should've been delayed to make a game with deeper and more content.

I definitely disagree with a few of those, mainly GTA V, Wolfenstien, and Watch Dogs.

Watch Dogs - This is Ubisoft we are talking about, NOTHING was going to change if they delayed it again except the amount of pre order bonuses.

GTA V - This came out at the time it should have. Another GTA finally came out, last gen ended with a bang, and PC and current gen were going to get it anyways.

Wolfenstien - REALLY?! Now that's just bull sh*t nitpicking.

Also, people need to stop beating the Battlefield 4 cow and focus on making EA avoid making Hardline DOA in terms of functioning game.
