10 Video Game Franchises That Need A Reboot

WC writes: For every great video game franchise out there, there are countless ones that have just exhausted originality and become creatively stagnant. While we’re not hugely keen on the idea of reboots becoming a common thing as they already are in the film world, it’s surely an inevitability if the likes of DmC and Tomb Raider’s impending reboots are successes, which we expect they will be.

Still, if they’re going to do it, hopefully they’ll at least reboot properties that could do with an injection of fresh ideas and a new twist on their favoured formula. Here are 10 video game franchises that absolutely need a reboot. (Alone in the Dark, Crash Bandicoot, Onimusha, PC, PS3, Resident Evil, The Getaway, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Crash Bandicoot doesn't need a reboot. The games all follow a basic story: Cortex has an evil plan and only Crash can stop him.

All the franchise needs is a game that plays similar to the originals with updated gameplay and it'll be fine.

EDIT: I accidentally replied to your comment instead of adding a new one.

All the ND crash games were awesome. It went to complete **** after the franchise left them.
I don't want another Crash game. It could never be as good as the originals.
