Five Game Series In Need Of A Reboot

"While there's something to be said for the improvement that comes from variations on a theme, the below five game series have overstayed their welcome in my eyes, and need to be gently, caringly led behind the barn to be shot. Or given the boot. The reboot, that is." (Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)

I totally agree on Animal Crossing, There is so much that Nintendo can do with this game but never do.

Take the city for example, that could of been way bigger but instead it was just a small place which never really offered much

Disagree with Halo. But if they do reboot it...just don't milk that fuck out of it. Don't turn it into the next cod.

@ velocity gamer . . .

3 Halo games in just about 2 years = Milking the F out of it.

Halo is the guitar hero/cod of exclusives.

As for games that I would love to to a "reboot" :

1) MediEvil
2) Star Wars : KOTR
3) Mark of the Kri/Rise of the Kasai
4) Parasite Eve
5) Double Dragon
6) Contra
7) Tecmo Super Bowl (With an NFL License)
8) Maximo
9) Final Fantasy (Can we get back to basics please!)
10) Champions of Norrath and or Baulder's Gate

As much as I love AC, I seriously hope they shake things up a bit in the 3DS version.

Yeah, City Folk was pretty much a mash-up of the previous two titles. Good game, but it didn't last me as long as the others.

The 3DS version is supposed to let you be the mayor, so it looks like they;re trying something different.

i think madden and cod needs to just stop
yeah they make lots of money but 6 months after release there worth nothing because the new one is coming out and the new one offers nothing new or exciting and the old goes down to a couple bucks.....waste of space after that....same with the tony hawk games or remake the n64 ones for the xbox and psn arcade

'Legacy of Kain' would definitely benefit from a reboot.

Knights of the Old Republic... (the single player RPGs)

enough is this mmo crap.

edit: oh, and System Shock!
