7 Gaming Comebacks That’ll Bring a Tear to Your Eye

Just one of the many reasons why geeks love to engage in heated forum flaming wars is the deep nostalgia we hold for our favorite gaming protagonists. As we lovingly (often frustratingly) guide our fragile friends through their digital worlds, we achieve serious feats, saving everything from castle bound princesses to entire civilizations. Memories are created, strong bonds are formed.

Understandably, when they disappear, it leaves us sad. Where do our beloved friends go? What kind of market dynamics have changed for development company bigwigs to axe them from the schedule?

Maybe, they just retired for a while? Strolling on a beach somewhere, sipping coconuts with the turquoise ocean lapping between their various extremities? This might just be true. Many have or (soon will) come out of retirement to make a comeback.
