3 Franchises That MUST Be Rebooted in the Next Gen Consoles

Well, until today we have seen a lot of changes in the face of video games. Back in the first PlayStation era, video games were simple and just do what you gotta do. Now, they just happen to take part in our lifestyles -- not merely an entertainment. And honestly, they have also changed my perspectives of what-to-play and not-to-play in certain ways. We also know that PlayStation 4 and XBOX720 are coming anytime soon. Ok, let's get to the point of what this article tries to point out. Here are top 3 franchises that, I think, MUST be rebooted in the next gen consoles: (Industry, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One)

Final Fantasy

SE's fundamental idea of what a FF RPG needs to change. Seriously...what the hell was going through their to be inspired by Call of Duty when creating Final Fantasy XIII?

I think Just Cause 3 should 100% for sure be rebooted. JC2 was an amazing game and I would love to see it.

Mark it as having been "Fixed" then or you'll still not receive approvals

Fear Effect would look great in HD.
They would dumb it down though and make it a third person action shooter if they made a new one.

Ah good Beyond Good & Evil is up there. The world is good then :).

Only games I can think of are Resident Evil ( perhaps? ) as well as Power Stone.

LOL... Fear effect was horrible game. I remember buying that one for myself over the false pretense that I might get a glimpse of some triangle boob or some hot triangle boob on triangle boob lesbian action. I was in my early teens :|...

Syphon Filter was just the Sam fisher/Socom knockoff... every third person shooter coming out around that time was all mimicking the same special ops story. Socom was great... I miss it.

Never played Beyond good and evil...

There are some much better contenders out there for the reboot treatment. Out of that list though Syphoon Filter would have the best chance... I see Fear effect turning into what happened with Perfect Darks outing on 360. Biggest disappointment ever for me IMO. :(

Megaman Legends is one of those games I think needs the treatment.

I don't think Fear Effect needs rebooting. Just another sequel, but with improved gameplay mechanics.

It's a shame we never got to see the PS2 game because it got canned during development. :(
Zizi  +   737d ago
yeah, on PS3 too. :(

All good games. Really would like to see Gabe back in action. Uncharted reminds me of syphon filter a little bit.
