Games that never got released that you are still pissed about

Only thing that comes to mind is Resident Evil 1.5, though pissed off wouldn't be the right wording for it. After playing the leaked version I always think "what could have been?".

EDIT: Also Megaman Legends 3. You just had to remind me KàIRóS KàIRóS :messenger_sad_relieved:

Earthbound 64. I remember seeing screens in Nintendo Power. Not really "pissed" anymore, but I am still slightly aggravated that the N64 didnt have any JRPGs. I was a kid and thought I was going to get my Final Fantasys but instead got Quest 64.
That game getting cancelled was one of the best decisions Nintendo ever made. Surely you have to see this in retrospect.

What's really frustrating was that in the upcoming games section in the back of the mag, the release date got pushed back over and over for years. I swear it wasn't cancelled until the end of the 64's life.

Megadrive/Mega CD Power Drift. Megadrive version would have been shit for sure but I had high hopes for the Mega CD version.


Dreamcast Scud Race. Still lacks an official port.


PC Engine CD Space Fantasy Zone. Unexpected Sega franchise cross-over. It's been leaked since then, but it's cancellation hurt at the time.

The White Council, basically a Elder Scrolls style game set in Middle Earth. Why on earth would you cancel something like that? It would print money.

Also there was that JRPG from Hudson for the PSP that apparently was localized, but never released.

I bought my launch 3DS for it 😥

I know, i know - sucker for getting on the hype train, but i would buy it anyway (maybe not on launch) 🤷🏻‍♂️

But it looked like it was mostly done, demo/prologue was announced and then came the axe...

All of those canceled Batman and spin-off games like Suicide Squad. Also, as much as I love MGSV... I will always feel like its full potential was wasted. We never got to see it all come full circle, and enjoy the adventures the true Big Boss, Gray Fox, Sniper Wolf and company.

Isn't there an AOE4 in development?

For me it'd be HL2 EP3. Glad the story was released somewhat at least.
Yea already for a while, and frankly we still saw nothing but remasters of remasters of hd remasters of older ages of empire.

So i hold my hope.

Virtua Fighter 3 Saturn. I need this in my life so much :(

My gaming life will only be complete when I will have seen this game running, or even screenshots, of the Saturn version.

D dark10x asked Yu Suzuki a question about the whereabouts of the game, and he answered he did not remember if I am correct. I can't believe this. Somewhere at Sega, there has to be an old storage room full of boxes, and inside one of them, is the Saturn version of Virtua Fighter 3.
