Top Ten Franchises That Need to Make a Comeback

SuperPhillip Central writes, "It's common in the industry for franchises to take a hiatus, even if they're at the height of their popularity. However, in most cases a series is shelved after an entry in it has poor sales. Regardless, SuperPhillip Central has compiled a list of ten franchises that we'd love to see return and make a comeback, regardless of what system it comes out on-- PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Durango, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, Mac, 3DS, Vita, or any downloadable service. Simply put, these ten franchises are ones that have just been away for far too long for our liking." (3DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

A healthy part of my Balanced Console Cycle is:

Link, Fire Emblem, and SAMUS

It's like a TRIFORCE of GREAT Gameplay.

Everything else is Dessert.

Metroid? Am I the only one that has Other M as his favourite Metroid? for wii <-
Nintendo always puts a game of all their franchises on any console/handheld they have, Metroid Other M and Metroid Trilogy were out of the Wii, it's not a comeback, it's just being patience over the next game.
King of Fighters 13 just released too.
Other than that, im f; sure i'd buy a new Megaman ( not Megaman Zero , sorry Zero fans but X is way better )

@Etseix

Other M was (is) OK so far. Haven't completed it yet.

I liked the Primes way better but you are not alone in your love for Other M - I have seen other people who prefer it over Prime (few but some).

I like Prime but I do like what Other M tries to do. I hope that the next game applies some of the Other M ideas into a Prime format.

I have said it a million times (5 times) that I would like to see a Metroid that took on traits from:
Prime/OM/ Metroid: Hunters/Dues Ex/Prey 2/ Splinter Cell.

Instead of going to an alien world, make the mission that Samus has to find a way into a Skyscraper (in a living city).

She has to collect a bounty on the head of criminals ('Cause she is a Bounty Hunter).

-Instead of making one way give her many ways from the start.

Zero suit stealth.
Hacking (MP2)
Brute Force
or a combo of each.
(Negotiation would be fun too as Samus does not seem too socially adept.)
She could even use the Ship for Pursuit and or travel across a large city map.

-also, would like it to be after all the Metroids in the timeline.
Maybe Call it SAMUS.

I'd love another Metroid game like Other M...
minus the terrible pace-breaking idea of having to point at the screen to search and use missiles. Oh and without the bad voice acting and dialogue.

I just liked the third-person action A LOT more than the first-person action of the Prime games, sorry. That combined with the music, gave Other M a more classic Metroid feel to me.

I hope that whatever the next Metroid game is will be in third-person (with better writing and control choices) :P

Also a new 2D/2.5D MegaMan X would be awesome, as would another Chrono game. I can't believe SquareEnix abandoned that franchise.

No Star Fox? Aside from the 3DS remake, there hasn't been a new Star Fox game since Command in 2006.
Phil32  +   1022d ago
Yes. Another great choice!
Nodoze  +   1022d ago
We NEED another Star Fox adventure (just don't make it like Starfox Adventure).

The 3DS or WiiU would be great for a new original Star Fox game.
kirbyu  +   1021d ago
No. The Star Fox games are terrible. Don't judge me.
Prodigy-X  +   1022d ago
Jak & Daxter
WiiUsauce  +   1022d ago
I can't see why Naughty Dog didn't make a Jak and Daxter game this gen. I would've much rather had Jak 4 over Uncharted 3 and Golden Abyss.
Phil32  +   1022d ago
I liked The Lost Frontier and Daxter on PSP, but it would have been nice to see Naughty Dog back on a true platformer. They seem to care more about making games as close to blockbuster action movies as possible now.
WiiUsauce  +   1022d ago
I agree 100% with this list. Especially Megaman. A Klonoa game would also look gorgeous on 3DS in 3D with the awesome 2.5D visuals. I also want Advance Wars and Star Fox.
Phil32  +   1022d ago
Good picks, WiiUsauce. We were deliberating and deliberating so much on this list!
mydyingparadiselost  +   1022d ago
The first Actraiser needs to make a comeback, screw the second one. Earthbound, Alundra ( again the first one) Lunar needs another entry along with Shadow Hearts, and what happened to Panzer Dragoon!?! The Xbox entry was the only I got to play and it was AWESOME.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1022d ago
Shadow Hearts 1 and 2 were terribly underrated in my opinion, excellent games. Would love to see a new Earthbound in a fully 3D world and a new Panzer Dragoon game too (I also only played the Xbox version and thought it was brilliant).
I would also like to see the Legacy Of Kain series make a come back along with, Klonoa and Parasite Eve.
Uh actually there are tons of series that need to come back the more I think of it!

Dino Crisis
Omnimusha
Megaman
Fatal Frame/Project Zero
Gex
Crash Bandicoot
Jak and Daxter
Legend Of Dragoon

1st person Bomberman battles with the Oculus Rift and on the Virtuix omnidirectional treadmill, that's a must.
nunley33  +   1021d ago
When the 3ds or WIIU gets a true sidescrolling metroid game, that's when i'll buy one or when that new zelda comes but i want a new metroid. I liked prime but i wanna see a true 3rd person metroid game for the WIIU. The GBA got some great ones and i can play them on my tv thanx to the gameboy player i bought for the gamecube <_<.
