The Top 7 New Franchises that Already Feel Old

Mario is a cultural phenomenon. Final Fantasy is epic. Resident Evil, Fallout, Diablo... all of these classic franchises will eventually decay and crumble, but don't expect them to be stamped with expiration dates in the foreseeable future.

The less fortunate franchises started molding before they even left the grocery store shelves.

The games may sell millions of copies, they may contain lovable characters and innovative ideas, and they may even be great, but they lack that slippery something - the abstract something that inspires gamers to bake Portal cakes and knit Mario socks. The following seven franchises are the best new ideas that won't survive a good fridge cleaning.

Funny thing is the majority of those things are Nintendo published.

I personally think Lego games are awesome........

Tyler Durden3724d ago (Edited 3724d ago )

i second that notion

InMyOpinion3723d ago

Good thing they didn't mention anything Sony related, like in this article

Would have been a warzone in here then.

Pretty much every peripheral gimmicky game from Nintendo dominate the list.

"The laughably stereotypical characters, "totally street, yo" story, subpar graphics, and glitchiness aren’t endearing, they're annoying and outdated. The competition is getting tougher, so Saints Row needs to become much more different to avoid becoming a relic."

Soooo....Pedobear doesn't aprove?

Panthers3724d ago

I cant stand the ghettoness of Saints Row.

IzKyD13313724d ago

the thing I don't like about saint's row is the fact that it tries SO hard to be like GTA, they won't even try to be original (but that doesn't mean the game isn't fun)

Funny how he compares them against Mario.

Harry1903724d ago

add Mercenaries to that list although the new one just came out. I don't really know why I feel this way.

matchgrade3724d ago

I feel the same way. The first was a great game, the second was good, but it didn't innovate nearly enough. $60 for a polished-up version of a game just doesnt sit right.
