Top 10 Cancelled Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Star Wars 1313

Star Wars should revive the intellectual property. Star Wars 1313 is the Star Wars game that everyone collectively deserves. It should never have been shelved. If Star Wars regains its independence from Disney, 1313 would finally get the full development it deserves.

The game would explore the backgrounds of the characters and how they came to be. It would also introduce new characters not previously explored in the Star Wars universe. George Lucas knows how many characters there are in the Star Wars universe, even some that he never thought of before designing the concepts of each character.

2 Gotham by Gaslight

Remember the Batman Arkham 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 with Arkham City and so on.

It was Batman, in Victorian times - where the villain was Jack the Ripper. What else do I need to say? Yes please, I would love this awesome game.

3 Sonic X-Treme

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 to Super Mario 64 and Crash Bandicoot.

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


The aspect that was special about this game was that Steven Spielberg, the man himself, was involved. A Spielberg video game, please, that sounds like Heaven. The gameplay footage looked great. If this game had been released and it was incredible, it could have possibly been the next step of the Video Game industry, like I said, it had the man himself, Steven Spielberg.

5 Crash Bandicoot Evolution

Crash Bandicoot has had a ton, and I mean a ton, of cancelled games, from Mark Cerny's to the Crash Team Racing remake, to Landed, to a new PS4 game, to Twinsanity 2. Basically what I'm trying to say is that Crash Bandicoot has had a lot of cans. However, in my opinion, Evolution seemed the most interesting one out of the bunch. From the concept art and the idea itself, it seemed like a unique Crash game, which is what we needed, especially after two not good Crash Games (WOC and NK).

It seemed like a Ratchet and Clank Crash game, which was awesome. That's why it was cancelled and turned into Twinsanity. Twinsanity is a good game but Evolution seemed way more interesting.

6 Conker's Other Bad Day

Conker's Bad Fur Day is one awesome game, from the story to the South Park-like humor, to the unique characters, to the fantastic gameplay, to the giant singing poo, and parodying other movies and all the violence in a Nintendo game. It was awesome and Bad Fur Day is one of my favorite video games ever.

So, when I hear there's a sequel, I get excited, especially when it's going to parody Terminator. However, Microsoft bought Rareware and the game never saw the light of day. I'm glad that this wasn't made on the Microsoft Rareware, Nuts and Bolts anyone?

7 Donkey Kong Racing
8 Sadness

Sadness was planned for the Nintendo Wii. From what I have seen, it looked like a much darker, more sinister, and more emotional Nintendo game. It was going to be a psychological horror game. Imagine how the game could have been.

Nintendo was maturing a little around the time this was cancelled, and I wish it wasn't.

9 Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned
10 Super Mario 128

Super Mario 128 was canceled for unknown reasons. Super Mario 128 is like a puzzle-type game with Mario which the gameplay is all about throwing blocks away to save cousins of Mario?! I didn't know Mario had so many cousins but sadly, it was canceled.

This looked really cool, controlling 128 Marios. Too bad it was canceled.

The Contenders
11 Star Fox 2

Star Fox II can still happen. Star Fox II is still viable. Cancellations are understandable. Star Fox II would make Star Fox a three-part trilogy. Star Fox in its Original Trilogy is still incomplete as we speak.

I wish this game had been released! It would have been so much better than Red Alarm!

12 Highlander The Game
13 Project H.A.M.M.E.R

A beat-em-up for the Wii, it was canned and eventually turned into a terrible Wii U game that cost 40 dollars. I'm looking at you, Devil's Third.

14 Mega Man Online

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

15 Silent Hills

I actually have not played Silent Hill (I know I'm missing a lot). However, I played P.T (Playable Teaser) of the game and it looked smashing excellent. The atmosphere was dense and it was creepy. The story looked suspenseful. I was going to get this game. Next thing I hear, it's canceled. Why? I guess I'll play the other Silent Hill games.

This game looked amazing but stupid Konami just had to give it up!

16 Division 9
17 Jak 4

I'm a huge Jak and Daxter fan, so when they announced they cancelled Jak IV, I was devastated, mainly because The Lost Frontier was a terrible game. Jak IV was going to be developed by Naughty Dog again and it was going to be on the PS3. However, it was changed to The Last Of Us (an incredible game) after they felt like what they made wasn't Jak And Daxter- look at the concept arts.

That is actually a brave move and I respect them for that, although, please just make Jak IV.

18 Geist Force
19 Metroid 64

The Nintendo 64 is usually considered the best Nintendo console. I can see why (The Legend of Zelda OOT/MM, Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and more). Imagine if Metroid was added to that mix of great Nintendo 64 games. However, Samus was in Super Smash Bros and we got an excellent Metroid game on the GameCube - Metroid Prime, so it's all good.
