10 Role-Playing Game Series That Need To Make A Comeback

Frontburnr:, I was extremely fortunate when I was younger. My youth was considered the golden age of the RPG. While Final Fantasy reigned supreme, there was always a smorgasbord of amazing titles at my fingertips. As I grew older, some of these good games got better with age and experiences that could surpass these classics became harder to find. In this day and age, there are only a few games from the successful franchises left standing.

I GAVE IT SOME THOUGHT AND REALIZED, “YOU KNOW WHAT? THESE 10 RPG SERIES NEED TO MAKE A COMEBACK!” (Breath of Fire, Chrono Trigger , Culture, Grandia, Illusion of Gaia, Mother 3, Retro)

Needs more Lufia.

Lufia is good, however I feel Golden Sun is a spiritual continuation of the series. Now Lunar on the other hand...

Golden Sun is the spiritual successor to the Shining series (same developer).

Seriously? The fact that Legend of Dragoon is not this list is a travesty here.

I really miss the D&D rpgs :(

Dark Cloud. Seriously does anyone remember those games? They were seriously amazing. Especially DC2. And props to them for mentioning Wild Arms. I still remember that game had the catchiest theme song like ever...

Xenogears xenogears xenogears. It doesn't even have to be about Fei. A Bart side story or a prequel about the omnigears would suffice.

I'd love to see square bring back the saga and mana series

Alundra, Lunar, Legend of Dragoon are missing from this list.

I would also argue Final Fantasy, since that series needs to get back to its roots.
Magnus  +   970d ago
Glad to see Wild Arms hit that list. I would have added Xenosaga, Alundra, Dark Cloud, Y's, Lunar, Legend of Dragoon, Skys or Arcadia, Ar Toenlico. With Xenosaga fanchise I want the game to orginall carry on its other three storys and make it the orginal six games like its suppose to.

Y's is still around though. Everything else is valid though. I lost interest in Xenosaga far too early though. Dunno why.
kalkano  +   961d ago
Xenosaga's story made it very hard to get through, for me. It was just plain ridiculous.

Dark Cloud is so overrated. The first one was average but the sequel was AWFUL.
