5 Franchises that need a rest

MMGN: It's the same deal every time - a new intellectual property is released, we fall in love with it, and companies think the best idea is to pump out a new title year after year, irrespective of quality. That's not to say that the games I'm about to mention are terrible - in fact, many of them have upheld a strong standard over the years - but it's hard to maintain excitement for an upcoming game when a new one is releasing by the time you've finished its predecessor.

I could live without the first four. But I just can't give up on Resident Evil, I love this series sooo much. Re 6 was extremely bad but I still enjoyed it (yes I know, that's a shame) because of Leon, Chris, Sherry and Oh god...Ada ! Actually, I can't wait for Capcom to annouche Re 7, even though I know they will most probably screw it up. I'm weird.

ape0071227d ago

i actually agree with u, RESI 6 was a fun yet strange game, some parts were very good and some were garbage but when u compare it to resi4, it pales in comparison

Rynocirator1227d ago

I feel the same way about 6, I liked it more than I probably should have. It's by far the worst game of the series, but I liked the story enough to keep going. As for re5, I felt like it was a possibly the best game in the series because of the accessibility...I could pick up and play with my friends using my weapons, using my upgrades, using my costumes, and doing the achievements was a blast...I hope re7 brings back what re4 and re5 did right and thats weapon upgrades, but if it doesnt allow for new game + like re5 I don't want it

another game is god of war. as much as i love the series. its time for either kratos story to end entirely or they come up with something else for a change.

I can't explain to you just how disappointing it was to see Ascension receive such mediocre reception. God of War is NOT a 7-8/10 franchise. I know reviews shouldn't matter but God of War is the kind of larger than life franchise that should completely renders all reviewers speechless.

To the guys at Sony Santa Monica: It's back to the Drawing Board now for Kratos (or another hero) and I am so sure that the next game in this franchise, be it in 2 years or 4,5 etc. will be a colossal installment!

MikeMyers1227d ago (Edited 1227d ago )

A few I can quickly think of;

Call of Duty
Halo
God of War
Assassins Creed
Resident Evil
Need for Speed
Super Mario 2D games
Gears of War
Street Fighter

pr0t0typeknuckles1227d ago

that list pretty much sums it up,all you need to add to it is final fantasy, and its perfect.

MikeMyers1227d ago

Far from perfect with all my disagrees, lol.

maniacmayhem1226d ago

I don't agree with Street Fighter. It has had only one release with multiple updates that improved on the fighting. I would count that as added DLC.

But I do agree with:
CoD
Assassins Creed
Resident Evil

Street Fighter is The Greatest Fighting Game of all Time

Without Final Fantasy this list has no credibility.

kalkano1227d ago

I totally understand why you would say that. But, I don't think it needs a rest. It just needs to get back to it's roots.

That being said, if it keeps going down the road it's on now, I'll just ignore it.

dark-kyon1227d ago

the final fantasy game only have the name in commun,every final fantasy is diferent to the others,what the last games were bad is no reason to finish.is sad what the gamers not recognize what the final fantasy ever have changes and never a games is the same,in comparisson elder scroll,mass effect are more the same but how sell good nobody cares.

There is so much history for Squenix to draw on, that I still want to see them make a new FF (imagine a FF game that looks as good as the Luminous Engine demo with the gameplay of past FF glory). What they need to do is get away from the stupid sequels.

If you discount the spin-offs (which is what I consider the FFXIII sequels) and FFXIV (like I discount FFXI since they are so different from the series, like FF Tactics), they've really only made one bad (well, bad for a FF game) FF game.

I'm not ready to forget the series yet. Still wanna see FFvsXIII, and whatever they decide to reveal for next generation. Would love a new console version of FFT as well.

Kratoscar20081227d ago

I agree with the list, add Uncharted and Dragon Ball and Naruto games.

dafegamer1227d ago

you should add Halo as well

Kratoscar20081226d ago

Of course, add Tales series too.

fredrikpedersen1226d ago

Uncharted? I disagree w/ you there
