2 games that come to mind for me are at least breathing in a sense they may see a release? Who knows but i want them both.
1. Van Buren- The code name for Fallout 3 before Interplay sold the rights to Bethesda. Some super fans of course are resurrecting the game and are receiving both input and help from the original developers. Heres a small interview and screenshots from the upcoming game.
2. Nuclear Union was announced in 2012 but due to war in the region a lot of the developers are just trying to survive. Its Metro, Fallout and Stalker and anything like that ill follow.
@ames: To be even more crazy we just went through what 7-8 years where vampires are "It". You had true Blood(Hbo), Twilight(movies), Underworld(movies) and now the originals(WB?) I cant believe there was never another Vampire RPG. How is that possible? seems to me a world that would be easy to build. Not easy to make, but the concepts and ideas are there to expand.
Like any game ill wait til its $20. I think what people tend to foget, as most people are not very smart, is this has been in develpment for 3-4 years. That means a lot of its systems are going to be very recognizeable. The one dissapointing aspect i have heard was during a stealth mission there is no option. You either do it right, or restart. I think the game will get slammed by "reviewers" if it reliant on qte's and such, but what do they know. It looks fantastic, and love the setting so its all good from a players perspective.
Ill go with Red Dead but by a narrow margin over Sleeping Dogs. Both carried an interesting story from start to finish, both had great characters, and both were just plain fun and hard to stop playing.
Also not counting mass effect because its not really open world.
