The Top 7... Cancelled games we wish we could play

Gamesradar- "You wouldn’t believe how many in-development games never see the light of day. Wildly-ambitious games are scrapped all the time for a number of reasons, from missed deadlines to overblown budgets to simply not being very good. Usually, they’re games that haven’t even been announced, but sometimes games are made, tested, shown off in trailers, and promoted before the plug is finally pulled. There’s usually a really, really good reason the games were scrapped, but from the outside it seems completely illogical, leading us to grow overly affectionate of these disasters.

These games end up becoming the stuff of legends – the mysteries of the game industry. We’ve gathered the ones we had the highest hopes for, and pour out a drink for the fallen games that will never see release." (Culture)

Man I would love to see another Star Wars Battlefront. Star Wars Battlefront 2 was one of the greatest games I've played last generation. The gameplay is so addicting, the art style is nice, the story is interesting. The game is just fantastic.

I remember when they kept making ones for the psp and feeling how pointless doing that was. Now with the psv having dual analogs I would be happy if a new one is on either ps3 or vita. So even if they dont make battlefront 3 maybe they will make one for the vita and i will happily take either one ! Same goes with any series a portable version is fine now because it can be played properly.

Six days in falluja and the prey 2. We all play fps and they seem realistic but they are not. Theres no consequences and few create an attachment to character. Six days would hav done that. Replaying an actual contemorary battlebinbwhich our heroes fought valiantly and many died. The prey 2 because it looked awesome.

Prey 2 isn't cancelled bud, just delayed. :)

I would have to say:

Eight Days: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Red Wood Falls: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The Getaway: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Battlefront 3: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Division 9: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Coded Arms: Assault: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Interstellar Marines (Not sure if that got cancelled): http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Six days in Fallujah: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Cancelled PS3 Superman game: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Those were the ones that disappointed me most:(

Damn i was so exited for coded arms: assault.

Wanted to just stick my head out a window and cry when i heard it was canned.

Dungeon lords 2: orb and the oracle was another one i was looking forward to. Rumors around recently that they have started development on a remake of the first one though.

Megaman Legends 3, ###### Crapcom.

Original version of Splinter Cell Conviction.

The No1 canceled game I wish I could play is not even in the list... and that's Legend of Dragoon 2 and from the moment this game is not in the list the list fails because there is many shitty games in there that I am sure no1 care to play, at least LoD have a strong fan base behind it, thousands of ppl who really want to play a sequel.
DaveMan  +   1254d ago
Eh none of these cancelled games really bother me that much except for maybe Battlefront 3.

Most cancelled games are usually cancelled for a reason. There are few games that get cancelled where I go, "wow, could've been goty."

Most cancelled games to me are like: yeah, looks interesting would probably rent it when I had the chance.

For me it would have to be Star wars battlefront 3&4 along with Legend of dragoon 2:(.
