5 Video Game Genres We Hope Make a Comeback This Generation

It’s no secret that certain console generations go through fads. The 16-bit era was host to a plethora of side-scrolling platforms. The 64-bit era saw the proliferation of JRPGs and 3D platformers. The last generation was perforated with shooters. (3DS, Nintendo DS, PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Well made article... Hopefully these genre's will come back this generation!

I would love to see dead space return but it needs to go back to it's roots like dead space 1 or 2. I HATED 3 because of that universal ammo crap, the weapon mods instead of upgrade nodules (which were wayyy better imo), and the fact that we ended up shooting people instead of necromorphs. Also 3 severely lacked the many enemy types that 1 and 2 had.
