Among the mountain of different games released every single year, there's always a sense that concepts that appear to be slam dunks are left in the cold. While the continuous pining for a realistic open-world samurai game appears to have been satiated by Sucker Punch's Ghost of Tsushima, there are still some loose ends in the upcoming calendar year.
Often, it comes down to a litany of reasons as to why these titles don't get made. Maybe a publisher doesn't see any money for it or it just isn't the right project for a developer, which just spawns even more petitions and tweets asking for the games we'll never get.
Some are obvious, like a really good dinosaur game or some kind of brilliant Aztec RPG while others are potentially a bit more obtuse. In a way, it's easy to understand why some developers might baulk at the ideas we're about to see.
In lieu of these, it may just be more financially beneficial to go for an easy slam dunk like a sci-fi military shooter.
So get those petitions ready, as there are SO many incredible video game ideas staring the industry in the face.
