A friend of mine likes the Games that I am glad were never made… series and is always suggestion that I should do more. It wasn’t until ConnectiCon and Otakon that I found out reader’s like them as well. First I did another Rejected Mega Man Villains because the readers at the cons wanted it and now I did another Games that I am glad were never made… for the exact same reason. Just goes to show you’re a lot more likely to convince me to do something if you ask me in person.
Okay, so we’ve got a Shrek game called Shrek’s Donkey Punch. Its not really based on any particular game, its more a play on the names of the characters Shrek and Donkey. And for those of you who don’t know what a donkey punch is… here’s a work friendly link you can click to learn more about this interesting subject.
Jacko’s Bizarre Adventure is a parody of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure which was released on multiple platforms. I’ve never actually played the game, but I saw it all the time when I used to work at Best Buy. Maybe I should pick it up. The only real decision is for which console.
Lastly, you’ve got Battletoads: Hard Version. When you first pick up and play Battletoads for the NES three things will quickly become clear. One, it had graphics that pushed the envelope of what the NES could do. Two, it was a fun game. And three, it is friggin’ hard as hell. The third level of the games where you ride hovercycles around is excruciatingly difficult. IGN rated it number eight in the top ten toughest games to beat (I think they were being nice). I have never actually met anyone whom has beaten the NES version of this game without using a Game Genie. So obviously if the game is that friggin’ hard, the last thing I would want to see is an even hard version. Right?
Quick links back to the previous Games that I am glad were never made…. Here’s the first one, the second one, the third one and the fourth one… I didn’t even realize that it had been over eight months since the last one of these until I was working on this one.
