5 Games Sony Needs To Bring Back or Reboot For The PS4

DefaultPrime writer Mike Patuleia takes a stroll down memory lane, looking at some PlayStation titles gone to the wayside that Sony should take a second look at bringing back into the fold with the advent of the PlayStation 4. (Blasto, Heavenly Sword, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, PS4, Syphon Filter, The Agency, The Getaway)

I'd like to see a Legend of Dragoon which features some flying, as well as some other things, but that's just me.
SuburbanHell  +   475d ago
Yeah, I had Legend of Dragoon on my initial list, but decided to cut it down to 5.
Hicken  +   475d ago
I would have had that instead of Blasto, but that's just me, I guess.
Freak of Nature  +   475d ago
Not just you, me too....

Legend of Dragoon
MediEvil
Jak 4
Dark cloud
Legacy of Kain (soul reaver)

Also something new from Oddworld in a big way...
Heavenly Sword is always a given when these lists pop up.

I'd like to see a new Lair. That game could've been better than Drakengaurd (did is spell that right?), had it not been for the poor execution. But i know Sony wouldn't allow it.

Game was an unpolished gem. We'll prolly never see another game like it.... what a shame.

I'm still curious to what the original trilogy Ninja Theory had planned for Heavenly Sword was, could've been epic, still could be if Sony would green-light it again...

Games I was going to include but ultimately got cut:
Alundra
Ape Escape
Arc The Lad
Dark Cloud
Jet Moto
Legend of the Dragoon
MediEvil
Primal
Wild Arms

Sir Dan is due for a return and given his appearance in PSallstars I'd say it's actually likely. Whether on Vita or PS4 is the question. Also a man loved Ape Escape 1 but haven't played the series since.

Haze is another game they should try to revive again. Think GG could handle it pretty well.
maniacmayhem  +   475d ago
Bloody Roar
Toshinden
Rogue Galaxy (serious, ONE GAME?! Criminal)

Please make a heavenly sword 2!

With or without Nariko?

I always thought the best way to make HS a franchise would be by having the sword found and used by a new protagonist each time, likely at a different point in the world's history. Every game ending with the protagonist dying in sacrifice to the sword against whatever evil they must face.

Unfortunately franchises tend to revolve around the character. I'd love to see this one revolve around the titular sword.
*****HEAVENLY SWORD SPOILERS*****

I always thought a HS2 would have Kai as the protagonist (a grown-up Kai). At the end of HS Kai promises Nariko that she would take protect the sword. Heavenly sword was such a great game because eventhough Nariko was looked down on (an underdog) she still fought a died for what she believed in, and it was beautifully told. I think Kai fighting off baddies, trying to keep her promise to her dying friend would make for an equally beautiful sequel.

I rather have a reboot or something. I simply didn't like the direction of HS.
Williamson  +   475d ago
I would of prefered if Nariko would of somehow returned for the sequel, but you make a great point and I too would love to see a new protagonist.
jakmckratos  +   475d ago
Heavenly Sword, Jak 4, Medevil 3 , Legend of Dragoon, Folklore, Ape Escape, Parappa on Vita, AND FOR GOD'S SAKE BUY BAK CRASH AND LET ND DO A SEQUEL

I like my list better.
GrandTheftZamboni  +   474d ago
Folklore would be awesome! Unfortunately it didn't sell well :(
abzdine  +   475d ago
Final Fantasy needs a phoenix feather this gen.

other than FF i'd like a new Chrono Cross or Dragon Quest.

Magnus  +   475d ago
I want Wild Arms can't believe no Wild Arms game this generation. Hell there is no Dark Cloud on that list either or Legend of Legia.

Rezka  +   475d ago
I've always liked the getaway
Blackcanary  +   475d ago
I would love to see a brand new Summoner I thought that was an amzing game on the PS2 i got lost in it for hours. And a new Dark Cloud mixing the characters from the first and second game some how.
USMC_POLICE  +   475d ago
Blas to is amazing so was getaway, syphon filter even the PSP ones were great. And getaway 3 should no doubt be on ps4.
DigitalRaptor  +   474d ago
Heavenly Sword - for sure.

Syphon Filter - would be great, if done right.

The Getaway - YES YES YES.

I'd love to see a sequel to Folklore although I realise that's not Sony.
I'd also love to see a new MediEvil and Jak & Daxter game.
