10 Videogame Franchises That Could Do With A Reboot

"Sadly, in this world, all things must come to an end. Whether its your shift at work finally climaxing towards your inevitable freedom, or a truly life-changing cup of tea being slowly sipped away, all things must pass. The same can be said of certain game franchises to an extent, with the things we love about the first game in a series quickly losing their lustre three or four games down the line. Plenty of popular game series are getting to this point where things are just getting a bit stale." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

why does every game need its own page instead of just making the list on a single page? its really annoying, i didnt even bother reading it after i noticed that.

Yep. That's where I stopped too.
It's a cheap way of getting more clicks.

Looking at the list, I couldn't help but find that the list is all of game franchises that switched up things, and the site is being elitist about the franchises. They are all either "they changed it too much" or "they didn't change enough" or "they need to change it back". There's no real talk about control schemes or gameplay issues or anything like that.

Look at Mario, for example. They admit that the Galaxy games did well, but they don't think that matters as they seem to want Mario to be a 2D platform and never think of a 3D environment again. Why when you admitted that Galaxy was a good game?

Sounds like an excuse to be elitists and to get hits.

Glad to see need for speed off the list after most wanted and hot pursuit. But what about spyro and crash? Spyro is a stupid sky lander and crash has been mia for years. I disagree with moh the new ones were great just had no sales because its not cod! I'd add socom also 4 was a slap in the face to hardcore fans like myself!

A reboot for Call of Duty? No thanks, I've had enough of that franchise to last two lifetimes. A reboot for Resident Evil, I'm on board for. I want the RE games to go back to being survival horror games.

Call of Duty? That game gets "rebooted" every year. LOL
