This week the members of the Gamer Horizon crew list off the game franchises that they most want to be brought back from the dead. (Darkstalkers Resurrection, Half Life 3, Mega Man 10, PC, Phantasy Star Online 2, PS2, PS3, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Suikoden V, Wii, Wii U, Xbox, Xbox 360, Yakuza 5)

Ugh I miss Tony Hawk. Back when I first had my PS2 I would buy all the Tony Hawk games and Underground, Underground 2, and American Wasteland were my favorites. If only they still made them like that…

I still have hopes for KOTOR 3 though.

I stopped buying Tony Hawk as soon as they allowed you to hop off your skateboard to make combos ridiculously long. THPS4 was my all time favorite, especially if you had a network adapter for your PS2.

Actually a really good list. Saw Tony Hawk as the article pic and thought that the list of games would be plain franchises that're just tired (my opinion of the Tony Hawk series). But some really thoughtful choices. Guess it pays to actually read the articles sometimes.

Where is Fear Effect.

^^ Right there.

Fear Effect would have been my number 6. Followed by No One Lives Forever.

Not one mention of shenmue? Ridiculous.

I almost gave it an honorable mention, then I thought...

"I'm looking for a black car."
"A black car?"
"Yes, a black car. Have you seen one?"
"A black car... hmm."

...and changed my mind.

What about the sailors?!

The series was groundbreaking, simply put.
N2NOther  +   245d ago
I've never played it. I have Shenmue 2 sitting on my shelf though.

Wave race.

It's weird that the article speaks of Tony Hawk Series, and coincidentally, Tony Hawk has just mentioned a new game is on the works.

Interesting... lol.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skate Senior? Or would it be Tony Hawk's Pro Hoveround Challenge?

No One Lives Forever would be among the top of my picks.

Pretty much a list of games that went sour.

I would much rather see a "Skate 4" than another Tony Hawk game.

Where's Legacy of Kain : (
