Lots of video games get canceled due to studio closures, lack of resources, and other issues, but we would have loved to play these 10 canceled games.
Not only was P.T. an awesome demo, but just the way it was dropped on us and eventually revealed as Silent Hills was one of those really special moments in gaming. I don't even want to be reminded of it now.
Konami screwed up. They could easily cut the Silent Hills ending cutscene and sell it for 5/10 bucks and I would easily buy it again. The demo was tons of fun and terrifying each time, I loved to make friends play
Plot Twist: PT was a tease, Silent Hills was fake, the Konami fallout was staged, and Death Stranding is actually Metal Gear Solid VI. 🤯 #kojimawoulddothis
That would be the long con to end them all, but I don't know if even Kojima would do all that. Then again, Metal Gear Solid 2 was a thing.
It would be one hell of a story to tell.
No Agent, that's a pretty easy one to get on this list.
2 days to Vegas and 8 days ooh and Agent
I just want a Getaway 3. I mean Sony has nailed the cinematic, open world genre for a while now. A return to the Getaway with the tech they got now would be so good
Six Days in Fallujah was a game I would have been interested to see how it would have turned out. SOCOM like tactical shooter with destructive environments. Lots of work on it and then it was just scrapped.
One of the first casualties of the early outcry mobs.
I'll never sleep with Sofia Vergara either but there's no point dwelling on it.
I can’t even imagine what that would sound like, ugh.
That tends to happen when they are cancelled.
Geist Force on Dreamcast & Scalebound still hurt for me. Oh and Mega Man Legends 3
LMNO being cancelled really annoyed me. There was a lot of potential there, but EA screwed it up. That drove Steven Spielberg to vow to never make another game.
Only ones on this list that truly bothers me is Prey 2, Wolf Among Us, and Silent Hills. Wolf Among Us, imo, is the best telltale release, next to Borderlands, and the PT demo was a great showing of what to expect going forward. What really hurts is that the original Prey 2 was basically finished when cancelled, because Bethesda became petty after Human Head refused to be bought out under the Bethesda banner. That said, the Prey we did get ended up being my favorite game of 2017, though it's Prey by name alone.
These type of issues don't happen in the movie industry, we've seen many actors adapt production size according to their budget, I don't see it differently on video game industry.
