Top Ten Cancelled Video Games You Wished You Would Have Played


The Top Ten

1 Star Wars: 1313

Never really was into Star Wars but the game looked fun to play. - Chaotixhero

Disney is full of jerks because they cancelled this game. - RalphBob

2 Gotham by Gaslight

Remember the Batman Arkum series? The only good Batman games ever? Well Gotham by Gaslight was the original one but was cancelled. It would have been a good game but at least you can have fun to Arkum City and so on. - Chaotixhero

3 Donkey Kong Racing
4 Shenmue 3

As a matter of fact, SEGA is thinking about making a third game but need a junk load of money to to so. Yes it cause that much to make the first two games. - Chaotixhero

It's finally going to be real & it's a kick starter game. SEGA should do other games besides Sonic the Hedgehog.

I found out about Shenmue 3 through IGN and now I'm so excited for it. I played the other 2 and Shenmue 2 had an unsatisfying ending. - xCHAOSNARUTOx

5 Mega Man Online

This was the game that was suppose to explain how the X series began and explain what happens to Classic Megaman, Roll, and the others. Sadly it got cancelled. - Chaotixhero

6 Sonic X-treme

This was gonna be a new Sonic game for the SEGA Saturn with new characters, multiple endings depending on your actions, interesting gameplay, and so on. But it was cancelled because Yuji Naka was a mean dirtbag. But instead we get...Sonic R. - Chaotixhero

This would have been a great 3D game for Classic Sonic. Modern Sonic has his own 3D adventures starting at Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast, so why couldn't Sega make a classic Sonic styled game for the Saturn? Sonic X-treme would have been a great competitor between Super Mario 64 & Crash Bandicoot.

7 Star Fox 2
8 Dragon Ball Online

This was the original Dragon Ball Xenoverse. You would do almost everything Xenoverse did...ALMOST. - Chaotixhero

9 Mew-Genics

It's coming. It's not cancelled. - The01Bro

Edmund said it will eventually see the light of day, but it's not happening, let's face it. Neither is Ouroboros.

10 Half Life 3

Does it count as a cancelled game if it was never even announced?

So now we know it's not happening. RIP our hopes and dreams. - The01Bro

It wasn't actually cancelled it just didn't come out yet. - RalphBob

The Contenders

11 Mega Man Legends 3

All mega man legends fan are now upset in a corner because of this. But oh don't worry Capcom gave us a Tron Bonnie spin-off and not a third Mega Man Legends game ARE YOU KIDDING ME CAPCOM?! - Chaotixhero

12 Silent Hills
13 Super Mario 64 2
14 Minecraft 2.0
15 Prius Anima
16 Super Mario RPG 2
17 Shantae Gba
18 Megaman FPS
19 Kerpoof
20 Microsoft's: Motocross Madness
21 Super Mario Spikers

A volleyball hybrid that was supposed the be on the Nintendo Wii - NicholasYellow

22 Super Metroid: Zero Mission
23 Dino Run 2

Personally, I think this indie game shouldn't be on the top ten, but I will say this was by far the most anticipated game by me, my friends, and thousands of backers on the Kickstarter for this. It looked like a very creative game, and had some beautiful art. It fell short of its goal, and then it was over. It would never come out.

24 Fallout Online

This was SUPPOSED to be an MMORPG from Interplay before Bethesda bought the rights to the fallout franchise. I think Bethesda would do a better job at this thought this would still be cool to play.

25 Mega Man Universe
26 Scalebound
27 Mario Kart 9 (2017)

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, DAMN YOU TO HELL! >:O

28 Pokemon Infinite Diamond and Cosmic Pearl (2017)


29 Super Smash Bros 5 (2017)
30 Sonic the Hedgehog Ultimate Genesis Collection (Sonic 1, 2, 3 & Knuckles) (NS)
31 Propeller Arena
32 Terraria: Otherworld

Announced almost three years ago, a revamped edition of what is likely my favorite game of all time has been cancelled this year. Can I say that Re-Logic were wrong to cancel it? Not really, the game had been in a tangled web when it comes to development since it was announced, and it likely wouldn't have been as good of a game as it was built up to be unless it was released in 2047. That being said, I would've loved to see how the game turned out regardless. Either way, I can't wait to see if the ideas used in this game will manifest in either a sequel to Terraria or a game that's unrelated to Terraria, and I don't consider myself upset or angry about this; all I am is curious to see what it would've been, good or bad. - nerffan8000
