I'm not gonna lie, I might pay 99 cents for that.

I guess this guy forgot about Need for Speed Shift and Shift 2, there's tons of customization, body kits, performance upgrades, the works. It just had a terrible interface that wasn't very user friendly.

Angry Birds: Tweetnam Style

Shift was terrible because it was too "controlled" I play NFS for the high speed street races.

or how about this, just don't buy these anymore? publishers spend a lot of money to introduce a new IP so when its established and has a fan base why would they kill it?

its takes a lot of money to make a AAA game, development cost can range from 40-60 million on average in 2-3 years of development. That doesn't include advertisement budget.

i am not a NFS fan so i don't buy NFS games, but i know my friends who buy them so its fine by me. I just don't like this gamer opinion of if i don't like a series it should die.

now it wouldn't hurt for some of these IP's to go away for 2-4 years and than make another game to generate some more fans/hype

I've been a fan of NFS since 3DO. nfs need to die off now that criterion took over. auto-log really??? who need that sh't and burnout engine really??. where is original back to it's root they promise??.... that was my BEST ALL TIME racing game outside GRAN TURISMO now it sucks.

linkkjm1618d ago

I couldn't agree with you more.

xursz1617d ago (Edited 1617d ago )

I have to disagree with both of you. NFS really did take a turn for the worst when trying to get into the sim genre but it's been on the fast road to recovery since Hot Pursuit was OK, but more appropriately Most Wanted. The online modes and all that are tremendous fun but all we need now is the reintroduction of full customization and we're back to the Need for Speed of old.

edit: spelling

I wouldn't go so far as to say that the Final Fantasy franchise needs to die, but they should definitely consider dropping the "Final Fantasy" name from any new games...

It'd be easy enough to call them anything else, and nothing would be lost.

Great list! Need for Speed is definatly past its prime.

Ranma11618d ago

its Yoichi Wada who needs to die off/f*ck off

xJumpManx1618d ago

Pokemon and Lego games need to go away. But all these are just opinions on persons opinions. I like Need for speed and its yearly itterations its one of the last few good arcade racing games you can count on every year.
