About turn: eight franchises in drastic need of a new direction

OXM UK: "As in any relationship, even our most beloved game franchises can end up feeling stale if they don't make an effort to keep things new and interesting. We aren't asking for Prophet to wear a racy new Nanosuit to bed every week, or for Sonic to shave his bristles, but we think the eight franchises below could do with a little bit of a shake-up - perhaps taking advantage of the capabilities of next gen platforms." (BioShock, Crysis, Dead Space, Fable, Mass Effect, PC, PS3, Saints Row, Silent Hill, Sonic the Hedgehog, Wii U, Xbox 360)

There are A LOT of games that should be on this list, subjective though it is.

Dead Space needs to go back to the first games atmosphere and weapon/combat system. Crafting is in every game today, take it the fuck out. This is typical EA trying to get COD numbers out of a former survival horror game, dumb the game down and focus on action.

I would like that aswell but after how much they ruined the franchise with DS3 especialy with the story can they do that.

Unless they write DS3 off as a what if scenario or a bad dream of Issacs created because of the Marker.

The 3 games that need more than anything else new direction & to go back to their roots is:

1.Silent Hill

2.Resident Evil

3.Final Fantasy

Those 3 franchises used to be my favorite games along with Metal Gear Solid, now only MGS continue to be my favorite franchise & those 3 not anymore, but I know what's the prob, the creator of MGS Hideo Kojima never left that's why the quality was always there, from the other hand all those games lost something vital, Silent Hill lost Team Silent, Resident Evil lost Shinji Mikami & Final Fantasy lost Hironobu Sakaguchi & that was THE END, those franchises r now dead no matter how sad that makes me, but I/we can't do anything about it.

Bullshit list. Crysis, Bioshock and Saints Row don't need a desperate new direction.

I would like to see Saints Row go back to the style of SR2. The Third was a little too over the top and SR4 is so ridiculous I have no interest in even considering playing it.
