I'm sorry but I'm getting really sick of seeing these "We should kill XXX franchise."

Besides, it's economics. When people stop buying the franchises, they'll die on their own.

I Agree, it would be crazy to kill a whole franchise especially if its still making $$$.

I think Sega is making an recovery on the Sonic series especially with Colors, Generation and Episode 4 selling well.

Pokemon sell better some of the games that come out consoles and pc. The only think I dislike about Pokemon is the anime. Ash never grows up. He's been 15/16 since I was a kid.

SE killing FF would be like Activision killing CoD or EA killing Madden. It won't happen, keep dreaming.

Anyone hating on FF XIII or FF XIII-2 haven't played/finished the games.

Great games, great characters, Lightning if one of the best female characters in a long time.

People cry for change, then complain about it ... see COD.

@Jeseth : Well said. Lightning is kickass. Was a bit annoyed by Noel/Serah in XIII-2 though :P

agreed games like Pokemon, and COD although extremely derivative continue to fly out stores, who are , a few out of the tens of millions people who dont buy these games to call for the end of the franchise, when millions enjoy them and are willing to buy them each year,it would make us look cynical,and selfish.

i got sick of those kill sonic thing just like if he isnt gonna get repaired ( in terms of gameplay )
its simple as long as mario is relevant then sonic is too simply he is more cooler but lets just say that his past games let him down

i would list Uncharted and Killzone instead of Final Fantasy and Pokemon

wanieldiik1823d ago

will you please just leave? Nobody wants you around here

AIndoria1822d ago

Didn't really get into Killzone, don't see what the fuss is about.

Irishguy951822d ago (Edited 1822d ago )

Don't you think the graphics are good ;)

No really, I loved KZ2's gameplay

Also lol at FF haters/ One bad game does not write off a franchise

MysticStrummer1822d ago

Any particular reason... other than trolling I mean?

Rumplebumpkin1822d ago

That's because you're a known Sony hater.

Old McGroin1821d ago

Loved Uncharted 2 and really liked Killzone 2 & 3, long may they continue! Pokemon is as dull as dish water and Final Fantasy refuses to evolve or innovate so I agree with the article on those two.

Don't really think Final Fantasy should be on the list. Sure they've had their ups and downs(Read "HUGE" ups and downs) but yeah, I'm kinda tired of these articles.

Again, FF franchise is still selling well in Japan and If the Western sales really fall low, Square-Enix would just start making it a Japan exclusive, and no, they won't stop making it :P


Parappa1822d ago

I couldn't care less if they killed off Final Fantasy. That franchise is beyond saving now.

Why is it always either 5 or 10 things in these lists?.

DragonKnight1821d ago

Because if it were 3 or 7 people would be all like "why such an odd number?"
