So there were hundred of games kickstarted this past year, but let's face it; a lot were just crap. Okay, maybe "crap" is too harsh a word. I'm sure that someone' passionate crap no doubt took a lot of thought and effort, but you have to be able to distinguish the "shit from Shinola" so to speak. So let me rephrase that and say there were many "less than stellar" games kickstarted last year.

But more realistically, there's lots of reasons I (or anyone) might not back a KS (Kickstart) game.
1) No interest in the genre
2) No money to throw at it
3) No faith that it will get published
4) No way it's going to be good
5) No interest in Kickstarting anything
6) You totally missed out on it for whatever reason

So this is a list of game that piqued my interest, yet for some reason I just didn't want to commit (which is a feat of willpower for me).

For a list of games I did find worthy of backing, see this list instead (of which I'm sure you'll think some were your version of "crap":
Kickstarter Games I backed or purchased in 2013 (complete with philosophical insights)

Feel free to add the games you didn't want to KS and why to this list. Or for that matter, thumb the ones you thought were good and tell me why I missed out.

Cheers.

The KS was cancelled (suspended actually, there's a difference) but it ended up being printed anyway and I've seen it available online for around $75.

It grabbed my interest based on the naval combat and simplicity, but I sunk plenty of money into Sails of Glory which I think is a better system. Plus Zvesda is coming out with a naval Age of Sail game which interests me more and is played on a hex board. This on plays out on squares which I didn't find as appealing. YMMV.

It closed unfunded. It looked interesting from a fantasy wargame perspective but a bit pricey and a high target that I didn't think would be reached anyway (even if that's what it did cost to produce it).

Cancelled. It looked interesting from the fantasy perspective, but give it a closer look and you'll find lots of games that already do this "tower defense" mechanic much better, and with better presentation.

I personally think people who play fantasy games want a more realistic immersion into the game system. The characters and art seemed cheezy in this one. That's probably what they were going for but it just didn't rock my boat. Again, YMMV.

One that I'll get when it's released, but one that I'll be happy playing with what comes in the box. And most everything that's in the KS will make it into the box.

Another one I'll get through retail or online. I really didn't like the box shape. Maybe the retail version will have a standard box. Cute, but dysfunctional. The game looks pretty good for Euro mechanics and I love the theme.

I really wanted to back this one but at the time had money tied up in other KS games I wanted more. The game mechanics in this look really interesting, with lots of combinations that won't get repeated. In fact, maybe too many. I'll be glad to wait for the reviews on this one before buying.

Another Euro I can wait for general release that will probably play just as good without the exclusives.

This one just barely made the cut for publishing. The theme is certainly unique and the gameplay looks interesting. I'll look more into this one when it hits general population.

Euro's are one thing. Pounds Sterling are quite another. And though the game sounded like a solid Euro, some of the reviews made me glad I waited on this one. I think it's a labor of love and may still get it if it hits the wider online market.

Light fantasy dragon combat. It just made the funding cut and I may pick up a copy when it's released as it might be a combat game my wife might play with me based on the dragon theme.

Throw in a bunch of minis and a Sci-fi theme and you'll probably get backed. I had already backed enough of these to jump on board another one, but it still looks good. But they had an October 2013 projected release date which seemed totally unrealistic, which for a June 2013 posting told me they know nothing about production schedules.

I really question if this one won't get lawsuits over copyright or IP issues for some of the characters. I like the theme however.

Didn't make the cut the first time around. Should be KS'd again soon, hopefully with a better price and incentives for backers. I'd probably jump on board with this one as I like the other games in the series.

I really like the presentation and theme on this one. But after watching the game being played in a demo I was sort of "meh" over it. Still, I'll keep an eye on this one to see if the reviews reveal the excitement I might have missed.

Space racing just doesn't cut it. If anything, this one appealed to the die-hard Gunship fans, and that's about it. I like Gunship for what it is, not for what they made this into. YMMV (especially if you're a die-hard Gunship fan).

I think this one bites off more than it can chew. I hope everyone that backs it gets what they expected.

Oh yeah, one more thing; if you ever wanted proof that "sex sells", this game provides it.

haha, I saw this one pop up and thought it would die a quick death. For the moment it has. IP dispute in progress. Given it was an MB (now Hasbro) game, I can guess who will win.

Sometimes you just can't back them all. I ended up getting a copy of this anyway when it was released. Excellent game and excellent system. If you like block games, you probably already have this one in your collection.

I love Zombie themed games. See my geeklist:
Better ZED than Dead! or my top 10 Zombie games

So why didn't I back this one? Well, it was heavily promoted by CSI, so I know they'll be getting it and selling it at a good price. It'll either be good out of the box without all the exclusive items or not. Plus, I could care less about all the Zed minis in this one which seem irrelevant for this type of game mechanic. I can wait on this one. Zeds move slow anyway.

I like a good racing game. I like airplane themed games. This one seemed like a perfect marriage. Unfortunately, a lot of other people didn't think so. The KS was cancelled but I hope it gets published down the road.

The next big money pit courtesy of Flying Frog Productions. Don't get me wrong, I have all their games (and all the expansions for them including web store exclusives). I know about their money pit approach. I think this one will do a good job thematically, but I really didn't like the coop aspect of it. I would rather it was a Western themed version of Descent.

Plus, to back this one at the completionist level (to get everything possible) was a small fortune. I predict a short shelf life for this one despite the huge amount of money it took in during the KS.
