The GamesBeat staff — and you — pick which games should sit this new console generation out

GamesBeat: Now that the Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One are all finally out, developers have some decisions to make when they think about how to take advantage of the new hardware. Do they create brand-new games, or do they stick with what they have? They’re going to do both, but we think that some game franchises shouldn’t come along on this console generation. Here are our picks for the series we’re perfectly fine leaving behind. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Batman: Arkham Origins, Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl, Gears Of War Judgement, God of War: Ascension, PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Five God of War games is more than enough.

Why when God of War 1, 2, 3 are masterpieces and GoS & CoO are immaculate portable games.

Just because 1 game out of 6 is sub-par doesn't mean they shouldn't make more, especially since this is Sony's 2nd biggest and 1st most beloved franchise.

Five is enough because I forgot the sixth one even existed. :)

But really, what's left for the series, plot-wise? He has killed everyone.

More beloved than Uncharted?

GTA. People are still too busy with GTA5 as it is; a new game likely wouldn't get much attention.XD

Ugh, Assassin's Creed needs a rest. maybe not for good, but come on, the yearly releases are making it look like Ubisoft's CoD.

God of War, they pretty much pushed the story as far as it could go without getting ridiculous.

The lego games need a rest too, holy crap.

I pretty much agree with all the franchises they listed.
