I know right

My favourite line is

"If you havent completed the game you can't comment on it"

Which is used a lot despite the fact you can judge something without playing it. I saw plenty of footage for TWO YEARS of the new dmc, trailers, previews, sceenshots, the behind the scene art stuff and it just got worse and worse, I even played the demo and with the way people went on I still couldn't say anything because I hadn't bought it......yeah ok then ¬¬

It depends on the franchise. Some franchises are good, but some decisions might have affected them, and a reboot might renovate them by trying again with fresh ideas. Others might be just trying to milk as much as possible.

In any case though, I prefer new IPs, because they can too become successful franchises

Also, people want them and since it's a big money maker, why not?

I'd still like a another Soul Reaver, reboot or not.
