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

7. Scratch: The Ultimate DJ

Developer: Bedlam Games Year of cancellation: 2011 2009's DJ Hero was a really fun game. For about an hour, that is, before you went back to the infinitely better Guitar Hero. Despite high expectations, the game and its sequel were disappointing commercially, and the DJ rhythm genre died out almost as soon as it began. Scratch: The Ultimate DJ looked to follow a similar formula as DJ Hero, just with a lower budget and an uglier controller. It featured a few solid songs by artists like Beastie Boys and Outkast, but everything about gameplay looked a bit underwhelming in comparison to DJ Hero. After an announcement that the game would be coming to iOS and Windows, nothing more was heard, and Bedlam Games closed down in 2011.
