Craig Hasselback writes: "The world of video games has companies, mascots and franchises scattered throughout the past that never reached their full potential. Those series and mascots ended and no one blinked an eye. But what about those great game franchises that really were good, but for some reason went missing? We've compiled a list of the top five franchises that we consider to be the most wanted franchises that have disappeared. The franchises span multiple console generations and various platforms, but one thing they all have in common is that they were great. While the reasons they disappeared differs, one thing they all have in common is that we would gobble them up if a new game was made. So without anymore delay, here's today's top five."
