10 Forgotten Games That Should Have Been Franchises

Howdy, once again, pardners! AlienLion counts down ten pretty random games that should have been franchises, as in series, as in they should have had sequels. These are all epic titles that were mostly overlooked and forgotten (well ok, not ALL of them forgotten) for no damn good reason. If you are not familiar with some of them, get off the Internet and get to installin’! Or at least, read about them here to find out if you really should. I wish some of them got remakes as well but they’re worth a few splinters as they are. Anyway, of course, this is not a complete list, and a bit of a sequel is coming up next, but for now, enjoy:

Ristar and Comix Zone

edit: I'm looking up that Landstalker game, it looks fantastic and will probably pick that up

Landstalker is my favourite Megadrive game, It's every bit as brilliant as A Link To The Past.

Isnt it by the same ppl who made Alundra? Or am I mistaken? (Seriously)

If you like old school Zelda, you really should. They have it on Steam.

sphinx and the cursed mummy

I had it on PS2, it was a pretty good game, but also the first to give me gaming fatigue (feeling sick while playing a game) so I never went back to it afterwards.

Are you the one who wrote this article? If so, congrats.

Very well written and hilarious. You are the kinda guy I'd like to sit and talk to over a few drinks talking about games.

Great article. Like to see a Bulletstorm 2, so long as they either go full funny, or full serious, not half half.

Thanks and I NEVER turn down a few drinks. Appreciate the comment.

C&C Renegade. Easily one of the best multiplayer I've ever played.

Damn EA for canning Tiberium.
