+atari2600land Posted December 11, 2021 Share Posted December 11, 2021 So I'm reading Uncle John's "Hindsight is 20/20" bathroom reader. Among the articles in "tech flops" is a thing about the Atari Lynx. But then there's this secion called "Unplayed video games". And in it is Propeller Arena for the Dreamcast. "Flight simulators are another popular style of video gaming, providing players an exciting experience approximating taking controls of an airplane. The 2001 Sega Dreamcast game 'Propeller Arena' recreated the cockpit of a fighter jet. Not only did gamers get to pilot a plane, they could engage in dogfights with as many as 3 other players. Scheduled to hit stores in early fall 2001, 'Propeller Arena' was one of the last games planned for release on the Dreamcast, but it wound up never shipping to stores. Just a few days after the events of September 11, 2001, in which terrorists hijacked planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center, Sega thought making 'Propeller Arena' a game about purposely crashing airplanes, seemed tasteless and offensive, so they pulled it." Really? If its release date was only September 10, 2001, we would still have this game as an official release? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
