10 Game Franchises That Need To Come Back!

I wrote before about a few franchises that AL wanted to go away. Well, here is a list of 10 that AL wants to return: (Casual games, Dev, EA, Industry, MDK, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Retro, Sega Mega Drive, Unreal, Xbox 360)

I misd Unreal.
black911  +   1003d ago
My Game idea is to Bring Back 2Xtreme just imagine online bike racing,skateboarding,downhill rollerblading etc. all in one game.

Unreal 3 was a bit of a disappointment. I'd take a graphically updated re-release of Unreal Tournament 2004 anyday though!

Dino Crisis, Eternal Darkness, Fear Effect & Medievil all deserve to be revived from the proverbial gaming dead!

Ah see, wrong Unreal. What you are probably referring to is Unreal Tournament 3, because there were only two Unreal games. Unreal Tournament is one of the spinoff series of Unreal, the single-player game.

Some good suggestions there though. Though this is about franchises, as in series. Some of the ones you mentioned are standalone games. But Medievil... totally forgot all about it.
jony_dols  +   1003d ago
Yeah I guess that I was always more partial towards the Tournament games!

Actually all the games that I mentioned above were franchises, with the exception of Eternal Darkness, in which the sequel was being developed by Silicon Knights before it's cancellation back in June. Fingers crossed that it will get revived though...

HELL YES to Road-Rash! Even if it's an XBLA/PSN release of a classic. SOMETHING Road-Rash needs to be released to see if people are still interested in it so they can make a new one.

You're talking about the era where we praised EA as being the good guys of the industry.

Now, we're afraid of Road Rash under EA given that it'll be laced with DLC:
$10 to unlock sports bikes
$10 to unlock rat bikes
$15 for hybrids
$5 to unlock nun-chucks
$5 to unlock stun-prods
$5 to unlock mace
$15 for a season pass to unlock all the DLC weapnos
$25 for a season pass to unlock weapons, bikes and tracks

...$10 for multiplayer pass...

Holy crap. Whatever happened to that series?
Hicken  +   1003d ago
I want a new Breath of Fire. Or Rival Schools. Been about a decade for either one, if not more.

Earthworm Jim and Road Rash would also be welcome.

Somebody finance Shenmue III and release it please...anyone.... ):
guitarded77  +   1003d ago
Star Wars Battlefront.
danieldeath  +   1003d ago
Unreal Tournament 2004 was awesome and Road rash .
Unlimax  +   1003d ago
Who the F miss Parasite Eve !

i really want to see Crash and Spyro comeback, maybe medieval
i kind of want to see a new streets of rage, that could be awesome if executed correctly.
a new Jak and Daxter needs to happen, or a real DMC, maybe the maximo series could comeback but the difficulty will be butchered for todays gamers.

MDK really needs to come back and what a fine way of explaining it. Good comparison with the action of Halo.
madpuppy  +   1002d ago
MDK was great, I would love to see a new one of those. the suit was the most unique thing I have ever seen in gaming.

I would also love to see a remake of Shadow Warrior, the humour in that FPS was great.

also, a nice star wars FPS like dark forces 1 and 2.

Shadow Warrior was freaking awesome. If it were a game series, it would have been on the list. Too bad people started whining about Lo Wang being a racist character, killing any chance of a sequel. I felt like he was an asian Black Dynamite.
FinaLXiii  +   1003d ago
Legacy of Kain and MDK.
Saryk  +   1003d ago
Magic Carpet, XWing vs Tie Fighter and Ultima Underworld!
ShaunCameron  +   1002d ago
Crash Bandicoot (I was surprised that the PS3 got neither of the last 2 games not like they were much to write home about. But still....)

PaRappa The Rapper (most creative IP Sony ever published. Period!)

Double Dragon (This was the epitome of beat-em-up action games for me back in the day)
Boysangur  +   1002d ago
I'm with you on Double Dragon.
Scenarist  +   1002d ago
road rash is an awesome game....
