What is up with every game in existance worth getting being delayed over and over again. The only game I can think of that wasn't delayed, and worth playing, was MaxPayne2, but even that game got boring after completing it twice in a week. Good games, like Half Life2, Doom3, DNF, FarCry, and Stalker continue to get pushed further and further until they need to completely change the outdated engine they were designed on, only to make us wait even longer. Sims2, a game I promised my daughter for Xmas 2003, will now have to wait til Xmas 2004 or later, and by then she might be sick of Video games as she will be getting to that age of boys are more interesting
Why don't we just all delay buying games until they hit the bargain bin since if a game doesn't sell, it gets reduced in price to clear it out. No one buy any most anticipated games til after 6 months they are released. Except of course Duke Nukem Forever, because 6 months after it's released, I will probably be ready for retirement.
