These are the top 5 AAA-video game series that Screen Critics Shaun believes need a fresh direction - something to help make them relevant again.
Star Ocean could use a new direction
Sonic needs a fresh direction ? you have to be joking. Sonic has been freshened up plenty of times over the years but gamers still **** all over the series. People that play Sonic games are stuck in the past. They can't move on from 90's 2D and sprites.
This article doesn’t make sense. Mass Effect Andromeda did take a different direction than prior Mass Effects, but it was the lack of polish that killed the game.The Sonic games change constantly and tend to review poorly because they aren’t very good.You berate Halo 5 for its story, yet site Deus Ex Mankind Divided and Hitman games that reviewed no better and the earlier was heavily criticized for story.
If by a fresh direction you think Sonic should retire, then yes. SEGA has other franchises that could do with more attention and the potential to wow us with great new IPs. Sure, there's Hatsune Miku and Valkyria Chronicles, but we could see more SEGA properties make a comeback if they weren't constantly trying to CPR Sonic.
