How about none. Getting rid of any franchise from any company is an abhorrently stupid idea because whether or not I like Mario or Uncharted or Halo, somebody out there is still a fan of those games and it's not fair to take that away from someone.

I really don't get why people thrive on the notion that IPs need to die out because they have grown out of it.
Either the majority of gamers have a case of Aspergers syndrome or they are just egocentric dicks.

Who's with Mii?

At least give them a proper body.

As someone with Aspergers syndrome I'd like to let you know that you're shallow assumption that Aspergers syndrome causes people to have poor opinions of things is absolutely disgusting. Why should I be lamented for thinking that some IP's have overstayed their welcome. It's a simple opinion it's not like I'm performing virgin blood sacrifices about it. And why should people be told they have cognitive issues because they share this opinion?

They said Yoshi's New Island looks horrible...

Burn them... Burn them all...

I agree with ultimate master. Get rid of Miis.

Otherwise my vote goes for Wii Fitness type games.

What would be the point of killing a franchise? They have not made yoshi for a while, so lets get rid of the franchise? Then you really will never get a yoshi game again.
Neonridr  +   282d ago
Hard to kill any franchise when they all still sell.
AWBrawler  +   282d ago
maybe nintendogs, but nahhh people love that and thats leaving money on the table
yeahokchief  +   281d ago
Nintendogs is another good choice. +1
chrissx  +   282d ago
All nintendo franchises are doing good. I won't get rid of any
zugdar  +   282d ago
How about new franchises? Ones that have a better cross appeal to hardcore and causal gamers. I know N has a lot of those but they don't advertise and take advantage of those very well.

Off the top my head I'd say Mario and Pokemon. Mario because it's been getting pretty stale for quite a while excluding the 3D Mario games, new powerups and outfits just don't do it for me anymore. And Pokemon because the creativeness that goes into creating the creatures is long gone just my opinion. ;)

"new powerups and outfits just don't do it for me anymore."

It's sad to see these days that people use that in an argument about why Mario games are still relevent. Look at the new one Super Mario 3D World. People say it looks like a blast and TOTALLY different to Super Mario 3D Land because of the new power ups and the fact it has local co-op. I mean come on that doesn't make a game brand spanking new. I mean I'm not saying it looks crap but I feel like people refuse to admit when Mario is looking a little stale.

I mean some guy on here yesterday said it looked different because of the power ups, because it now has 4 players and the music....THE MUSIC, every video game out there these days has new music for the franchises next game, it's hardly something to use in this kind of argument


The point is they are small things. Do you think GTAV could of added a few new guns, a new character and somke new radio stations and it would be brand new. I don't think so

"and a one everyone is going gaga over"

It's Mario....everyone goes "gaga" over the newest game to come out.

It's the "Nintendo" effect

the power ups are actually a big deal because new power ups are usually used hand in hand with the level design in 3D mario games.The levels are going to be completely new too.... and your right GTAV isn't new because of those things, its new because of the brand new map to explore and the story. Mario isn't about tne Story, but all brand new levels is the same as a brand new map.

I think I'd get rid of the "Olympic Games" series of Mario and Sonic games. Those always seem to be pretty much the same.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   282d ago
that owned by Sega not Nintendo
Moncole  +   282d ago
That one series that had only one game in its series that noone likes and had bad sales.
Broburger  +   282d ago
No nintendo franchise, but I'd get rid of COD, Madden, Ass creed, God of war, Rainbow 6, Medal of Honor, dynasty warriors, etc
kirbyu  +   282d ago
Star Fox. I never liked any of those games. But I would only say that if I was the only gamer on the planet. Like PopRocks359, as long as there are still people who like to play the games in a series, there's no reason to kill it.

So my answer is none of them.

I've been reading the comments and have thought about different franchises...

I wouldn't want to kill any, but one that I'm interested in them revitalizing is Ice Climbers.

I've only played the original Ice Climbers game on my 3DS, and I'd love to see Nintendo reimagine the franchise. Nintendo's creative; I wonder what they'd do to make it more appealing to today's audience...
mochachino  +   282d ago
The only thing I'd want Nintendo to stop making are consoles.

Imagine Zelda and Metroid on PS4/PC/xone
Misaka_x_Touma  +   282d ago
BosSSyndrome  +   281d ago
Wii Music.
