Most Wanted Franchise Comebacks

Dealspwn writes: Maybe it’s seeing Stallone and Arnie back in the cinemas recently that has me feeling nostalgic and hankering for the good old days. I even had a good root through some of my older games that I’d packed into the attic. Or perhaps I can’t blame it on the return of the aging action stars, it’s more likely to be the amount of kickstarter campaigns for retro game reboots, studio closures, stagnating sequels and brand retirements that made me think about what games from years gone by could lift gaming out of this over-familiar slump in which it finds itself. (Culture, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Retro, Xbox 360)

"Specifically a follow-up to the 2008 game please. No, wait! Come back! Admittedly, this is something of a personal choice, as this game never properly finished its story. A fantastic -and brave- ending to the main game left me stunned, but ready to accept it as final."

I know right

I was like "he chose to save her despite covering the world in darkness", most game hero's would just do the noble choice and let their love interest go for the sake of mankind but not the Prince.

I just loved it when you saw that scene of him carrying her while Ahriman is coming towards them in the background

Ooh, yeah Battlefront for sure. I never played Shenmue as I missed the DC. And now I don't want to get hooked on something that may never be finished,like bloody Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles. Get the feeling I'm missing out though.
