The 2016 Vaporware Awards

The 2016 Vaporware Awards are out and there are some pretty big names on the list. Star Citizen made the list, as did Kingdom Hearts III and Beyond Good and Evil 2. Anyone have games that you feel should be on the list but aren't?

While the triple-A game industry seems to be having less of a problem with vaporware, we the consumers have gladly inflicted it upon ourselves via crowdfunding. Take Broken Age, the physical edition of which I just received on December 1آ—nearly five years after my Kickstarter pledge. But it’s not all Kickstarters! There are plenty of traditionally-funded blockbuster games that have been talked up for years but just can’t seem to ship (or even commit to a date). We’re not gonna talk about The Last of Us Part II because that was only just announced, but come onآ—you know they’re already writing the Very Special Update for the PlayStation Blog explaining that the game’s going to miss the 2019 holiday season and come out in March 2020.
