PlayTM writes: "It's a question many of us find ourselves asking more and more as the holidays approach: Where have all the good games gone? As alluded to in previous columns, many high-profile staples such as Alpha Protocol and Dark Void have been unceremoniously delayed until 2010. But here's something you might not notice unless you've been following the business since the days of floppy disks and CD-ROMs, or your tastes run more eclectic than the typical mainstream player. What about that curious breed of unique, novel and esoteric old gem which older players once grew up with - how many have also quietly been dropped from current release schedules? Those super-hardcore outings and eccentric foreign imports seem to be disappearing from store shelves at a disturbing rate as well."
