The 10 Biggest Gaming Franchises

Lists, lists, lists. They can be, and frequently are, a cheap and cynical shot of content - but none the less they can also make for surprisingly compelling reading. So, after a booze-fueled debate reached no natural conclusion, Play.tm thought they would let their team lay-down the evidence for their favorite gaming IPs.

Metal Gear Series. Do they count Sports Series too? and what is a Bubble Bobble?

lol Halo is a way bigger and better franchise than anything Sony has. Gran Turismo sales a lot but it sucks. Forza 2 was actually AAA while the 40$ horrible GT Prologue they ripped you off with only scored in the 70's on metacritic.

Forza 2= another AAA 360 franchises...along with Halo, Gears, Mass Effect, Bioshock(won GOTY on the 360...ofcourse)...I think Gears 2, Fable 2, Left 4 Dead, Infinite Undiscovery could be serious candidtaes for more Xbox 360 AAA greatness this year.

Keep dreaming while you wait for Sony's inferior wanna-be title's.

Here are the biggest franchises by facts.

In no particular order:

1) Mario
2) Zelda
3) Final Fantasy
4) Gran Turismo
5) Sims (yea I know, but facts are facts)
6) Pokemon
7) Madden
8) Gran theft auto
9) FIFA
10) Need for Speed

Dont agree with my list? http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

I got 9 out of 10 correct!

As for forza, xbots cry all you want but forza is not even a GT rival. Its so far behind, its like a 5 year old trying to fight a 25 year old.

Look at this bro. 3 of them are Nintendo exclusive. 1 of them is Sony exclusive. Rest appears on PS3 as multi platform but not on Nintendo wii. Meanwhile MS has no exclusive. Hahaha!
