A lot of videogames like to play it safe, but not these unconventional seven - which turned out to be great gun, despite being weirder and more intense than a Macho Man Randy Savage promo.
Tech demos exist to show off a graphics engine, for instance, in the best possible light. As such, there are loads of gorgeous, exciting tech demos out there that never become actual games, but look so good that we'd happily front crawl through a sandpaper swimming pool for the chance to play them.
