Ten video game heroes that time (nearly) forgot

While some game heroes outstay their welcome, others leave the party early. Some of these went into early retirement because their chosen genre had fallen out of favor, others because their game studios decided to focus their efforts elsewhere, and others still for reasons unknown. (Culture, Retro)

Part of me wants a new Conker, part of me is unsure they'd be able to do it well. Conflicted.

Actually, it looks like Rare has two game characters that made the list. Those guys have gotta get on top of this.

"Yeah.Sad to see what Rare has become.How did they end up like this?"

Easy, they changed their Identity. They even changed their logo recently, as I recalled. They lost a part of them and I don't think they can ever recover from it. It is a sad state to see. But ThatXboxGuy, you should already know the feelings of how hard it is, don't you? I heard you recently went through a similar transformation.

smh

i hear yuh, as soon as rare left nintendo, Rare turned into poop . . ha haa . Conker . . another reason why the N64 is STILL the best gaming machine ever . . fact

Totally agree. Although today I am more of a PS3/360 gamer, I always say the N64 had the best good game to bad game ratio.

RARE made Conker's BFD (my favourite game, MP was awesome as well), as well as Banjo Kazooie and Tooie. Oh, plus Goldeneye and Donkey Kong. Wow those guys were invincible. Every game they made was basically a masterpiece. How could a studio make that many amazing games?

Still, I hate it when someone brings up Rare nowadays, it pisses me off to think what they have become. I like Banjo Nuts N Bolts, but c'mon, where are my 10 years worth of modern masterpieces they should have made?

Don't hate me for saying this, but a lot of people think MS just bought RARE so that Nintendo didn't have them. Basically, they bought out their competition, with no real plans to use them to their full potential, and I have no choice but to agree. Where the heck are the games?

Conker was amazing... It was perfect for its time in gaming. Even if they did a sequel I highly doubt they could retain that same feel for both gameplay and comedy. You just don't see games like that anymore... To be fair though, Conker was one of a kind.
