10 Awful-Sounding Video Games That (Fortunately) Got Cancelled

Who thought these were a good idea in the first place?!

Often, when hearing about cancelled video games, it's easy to wistfully wonder what could have been. Highly anticipated projects such as StarCraft: Ghost and Fallout Online managed to break the hearts of players worldwide when their respective publishers announced their cancellation. Of course, many video game projects are cancelled for very good reasons. Sometimes, publishers get cold feet after realising they might not be sitting on such a massive hit as they first thought. Other times, the games are way too ambitious for the developers to handle or finance. In the very worst cases, the simple fact is that the entire premise of the game just sucks. This list takes a look at ten cancelled video games that make you wonder why anyone thought they were a good idea in the first place. From gimmicky titles relying on underpowered technology to horrifically weird ideas with bizarre premises, it's probably a good thing that these awful-sounding games never saw the light of day.
