Subject: Wired's 2002 Top Ten Vaporware

Well, as we ring in the new year, what better thing to do than head on over and read Wired's annual top ten vaporware listing. Frighteningly enough, alot of the entires on this years list are, including titles such as Shadowbane, Team Fortress 2, Master of Orion 3, and of course Duke Nukem Forever (Are they even going to bother releasing this?!).

Valve's Team Fortress 2 is a team-based, online action game from the creators of Half-Life that also made last year's vaporware list. It will be released "shortly," Valve promises.

"This game has been talked about since 1999 or even earlier," wrote reader Chris Mendoza. "And we are about to go into 2003 and still no TF2. The homepage for the game even has a quote from 1999. They haven't even got the decency to remove it!"
There's some real stinkers on there, hard to believe that with such massive delays that some of the companies are even in business.
