Game Delays: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

"The last thing a game publisher wants to see is a delay – that means more funding provided without returns. Thankfully though, not all delays wind up bad. Sometimes the extra time is spent making the games better, although other times the game can lose its focus and just turn out worse overall." - David Jagneaux

I enjoyed DNF though. Got it at launch. Reminded me of a retarded version of Half-Life 2. LOL.

People do seem to forget though that delays aren't anything new. They've always happened & never really increased in regularity, its just that it's more mainstream now so more widely known about.

Also, with every game having to be a AAA system seller these days there's less games being actually released in the first place. I remember as a young'un picking up a new game every single week but then they wernt half the price they were now & they were just fun & didn't require million £/$ advertising to sell their games to me on false promises!

The corporates destroyed the gaming industry a long time ago!

What games did play? I remember buying Sonic 2 for $50 which is90's money so that's $70-80

The weekly games were more for the PC which were around £10-£20 but console games were usually £30 but for consoles I had a game swap shop across the road from me so I generally just swapped my console games a lot of the time.

Ahhh the good old days eh, pay £3 & walk away with a completely different game...
