Which at this point is not an easy task any more... lol

pcwzrd13 wrote:You only want completed games? That would be a very short list considering the only one is Propeller Arena. Oh and you might count Dee Dee Planet which wasn't released because of a game breaking bug. If you're asking for ALL unreleased games then Sega Retro has one but it's not complete. Unseen64 is a good resource as well. It would be very hard to compile a complete list as I'm positive there were many games in development that no one even knows about. There are some that are barely mentioned online aside from brief mentions in old forum posts.

pcwzrd13 wrote:It depends on your definition of "complete".
Half Life still needed a lot of optimization and suffers from slowdown in places, long load times, and a glitch that causes save files to increase in size every time you save.
ToeJam and Earl was maybe about 75% complete. The game is playable for the first nine levels or so with some slowdown in places but will eventually crash.
Geist Force wasn't even close to completion; the levels are all there but it suffers from a lot of slowdown, it crashes very frequently, and a lot of things are missing (enemies, textures, a menu, etc.).
PBA Bowling actually might be complete but I'm not sure; I haven't playing much of it.
Hellgate made it to a beta stage and while most of the game is there, it lacks polish and is quite buggy (I haven't actually played this one).
The Flintstones is hard to tell because it's really just a horrible game. My guess is that it's not quite complete though as it has slowdown in quite a few places, especially when shooting enemies. It could also use a lot more polish.
My YouTube channel is in my signature below. The Games That Never Were is the series about cancelled Dreamcast games.
