10 Canceled Video Games None of Us Will Ever Get to Play

The world of video games is full of what ifs and could have beens. What if Nintendo and Sony had teamed up to produce the SNES CD add-on? Imagine what could have been had Sega took its time with Sonic 06. What if Star Fox 2 had never been canceled?
