There’s a strange sensation in the air. A feeling of impending DOOOOM, that lingers in the atmosphere. Australia has gone quiet, and reports are coming in that there are bundles of empty clothing everywhere in Durban. Nah, I’m just screwing with you all. Much like an ANC promise before the elections, the 2012 Apocalypse that so many Kool Aid drinkers spoke about, has failed to materialise. Something that certain games share a common trait with.

There have been plenty of games in the past that have failed to materialise. Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider were due this year, but extra polish was needed on those titles, so they slipped to 2013. Duke Nukem Forever was the leading contender for biggest vapourware title ever, until it finally did arrive.

So think about it. What’s the one game that you were just aching to play, but much like the apocalypse, it just failed to appear?
