Take a look back at some of the industry's most fantastically disastrous non-starters.
because I've never heard of them
How old are you?
how can u not know about advent rising.
I followed Advent Rising pretty closely 'til it's release. Mostly because it was written by Orson Scott Card (I hope your at least familiar with the Enders series...), n' the game n' what they were planning on doing didn't seem half bad. Not 'til I rented it at least... There's a very good reason it's on this list.
Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic was awesome back in the 16-bit era. And was decent in the first Sonic Adventure for Sega Dreamcast. But has been on the decline ever since.
Some games just weren't meant to be 3D I guess.
I think these are games that were meant to be a huge hit but weren't. Sonic was a huge hit but now isn't.
don't remind me of Haven.
Worst game in the history of the world >_<!
Okay, fine. It's not. But the ending really just sucked balls. And no, it wasn't a cliffhanger.
You beat the final boss by pulling off some stupid moves, and then he just chains you up on a deserted planet and goes off. Cliffhanger? Not by my standards. I COULDNT SAVE my previous world, for god's sake.
I think they're being a bit too harsh on qulaity of some of those games. Getting Up got good reviews (GameSpot gave it a 8.5 or something). And Pryzm wasnt that bad looking or mediocre.
The biggest failure & Screw-up of them all was Advent Rising. And the failure of that title wasnt the whole tragedy. The true screw-up was that Majesco put millions of dollars to advertise mediocre-to-decent Advent Rising while totally ignoring the instant classic Psychonauts.
I didn't know the game actually almost put 'em under tho as the article states. They put all their might behind this title; ad's, commercials, n' they had their game featured in many gaming mags. Like I said, they even had me goin' for a minute.
