5 Long-Running Video Game Series That Won't Survive The Next Generation

Here are five series that will either be dead (or at the very least drastically diminished) by the time this upcoming generation is through. (Castlevania, Final Fantasy XV, F-Zero, Industry, PS4, Resident Evil 6, Wii U, WWE 13, Xbox One)

If Final fantasy survived this gen I think it can survive next gen. and from what Square has stated FFXV may have its own sequels as well.

but it will it survive in the fan's hearts? i think not.

I just don't understand why...with the success of Ni No Kuni, the tales series etc. especially in Japan, why SE feels that they have to westernize or appeal to a larger audience. If they kept to the open world, travel and grinding of old, the new graphics, story and innovative combat would shine. Am I the only one that thinks the old school FF could be updated and still b very popular.

Also, I heard on IGN the idea that next gen will be AAA titles and Indies...with a few others thrown in...and that's it. I tend to agree. If this is true...there will be new big IPs but many, many old IPs will die off...not including remakes.

yeah Resident Evil has fallen a long ways :(
They need to go back to classic survival horror, and more puzzles that make your head spin. I always got a huge kick out of figuring out a crazy puzzle.

The end of Castlevania? No way. Resident Evil is in trouble but hopefully after Resident Evil 6 they listened to all the criticism. I still really enjoyed Leon & Ada Wongs story though. F zero was always fun in my opinion & Nintendo really needs more then just Mario Kart. I haven't played the others to give a opinion.

"but Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami royally screwed his series over when he made Resident Evil 4."

Uhh, no. He saved it with the most successful installment in the series to date. It's not his fault Capcom took the gameplay style he thought up and butchered it beyond compare, taking out every last chill and replacing it with Gears of War-esque gameplay and action. At least RE4 could be identified as an action-horror game like F.E.A.R.

FF games: X from Monolith Soft will be new Jrpg king for next-gen consoles.

F Zero- I beg to differ. The last one was WAY too awesome, even by today's standards. Frankly, I haven't played a better and more fulfilling futuristic racing game than this one yet.

Resident Evil- Well, this series is getting tons of flak on one side and praise from others(Re6 mostly). And if Revelations is any indication, there is still life on this franchise.

FF series- I dunno what to say about this one, I LOVED XII but HATED XIII and XIII-2 with a passion. Unfortunately, I haven't yet tried XIV since it is a (correct me if i'm wrong here)P2P MMO and I strongly dislike monthly fees.

Castlevania- Sad to hear the old team disbanded as I am a fan of the Old-Type and Metroidvania-style Castlevanias. Loved the Wii-Ware version and the DS games too. I have the 3ds one but I feel it's not the same. IMHO it doesn't feel like Castlevania at all, tho its still an excellent game in its own right.

Resident Evil 7 will probably be the last
