Just follow this 9-step program.
I agree with the article to an extent but have a different view of games that I would remake. Sega, you were masters of the Arcade Generation..release some of those especially Virtua Racing, Sega Rally and a proper Streets of Rage. The rest of the list you created was pretty good :D 9 Words of Wisdom to Sega 1. Please 2. Stop 3. Making 4. Games 5. That 6. Really 7. Suck 8. You 9. Dopes

"Step 5 – Return your classic franchises to their classic format OK, you had your fun making a Shining Force fighting game and action game, but stop it. You keep trying to innovate and change around your classic franchises but when people want to play a Shining Force game, they want to play a tactical RPG. Don't believe me? Look at Fire Emblem ! It hasn't changed up its formula in years and it's still a powerful Nintendo brand. Nintendo doesn't need to keep reinventing itself and you don't either." *standing ovation*
PSO2, Skies of Arcadia 2, localize yakuza, and a new valkyria chronicles on consoles. If I were allowed to dream extra high, I'd also add shenmue remake to that list. There: sega would be epic again in my book.
Its not simple for a corporation to simply reverse its fortunes. SEGA would have to do more than release a few quality games here and there.
Start with Dreamcast 2.
Good article. Sega has all of these great franchises just sitting there waiting to be revived. We need a new Virtua Fighter, Virtua Cop, Skies of Arcadia, Outrun, Daytona USA, Spike Out, etc.
