As with Hitman, which other titles should return to their roots?

This week IO Interactive fell on their sword a bit, with an open letter sent out to its fans and the industry. The letter pretty much explained that the next Hitman title would return to “core Hitman fantasy” and they have certainly learnt a lesson from the last title in the series, Hitman: Absolution. (3DS, EA, Final Fantasy XIII, GameCube, Hitman: Absolution, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PS4, Smash Bros., Wii, Wii U, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

SOCOM 2 HD (and modernized a bit). Though, we have H-Hour in development so...nevermind?

I would really like to see Monster Rancher return as a PS Vita game!

For the love of God, Final Fantasy.

I don't see how going action-RPG is going to benefit them. They've abandoned their fanbase, while removing the one thing that set them apart. They are now just another face in the crowd. I'd rather play a series like Elder Scrolls, or The Witcher.

Final Fantasy is now meaningless.

Agreed...bring back turn-based

As bad as people make FF look like. I'd rather play it than a buggy mess that is an ES game.

Agreed. Bring back the openness that made it an adventure.

Resident Evil. Get back to the creepiness.

FFXIII was perfectly fine for a FF game.

If you didn't like it, there's always Bravely Default.

hitman is a big one for me the last one was an atrocity . also like he says above be nice to see monster rancher or also known as hunter return to the vita

The FPS genre! Gone are the days of finding your own way around a map, picking up health packs and running out of ammo and resorting to cheap, dirty tactics to beat a level.

Nowadays, they hold your hand and guide you every step of the way, health regenerates, ammo can be found almost anywhere and with quite a large supply at hand...

We NEED more games like Metro!

Dude you don't know how pissed off i was when DICE added regenerative health. They destroyed the medic like wtf. Same with vehicles what the hell is the point of the egineer if it just regernerates. I do miss the fast pace Unreal/Quake shooters though. It required real perscion and accuracy.

Dead Space, and practically any other third person survival horror game.

Splinter Cell! Possibly one of the biggest offenders of abandoning its roots

I agree. While I do like the action/tactical direction they went, nothing beats sneaking in the shadows while quietly dispatching your foes. Now excuse me, I'm going to go shoot some light bulbs to reminisce.

Resident Evil & Silent Hill, pretty please.
Rhezin  +   473d ago
Dead Space and Silent Hill. Also Resident Evil, meaning they should go back to the originals like 1-3 and even the ones on Gamecube. I'm one of the few that did not like the changes going into Resident Evil 4.

Tomb Raider big time
