Meodia takes a look at 5 great gaming franchises that never got the opportunity to leave their mark... and gamers never forgot.
Weak ass list! I want the return of Powerstone
Yup, been gaming since snes and never heard about any of those games. Cant get over them when they werent in my interest to give a damn to begin with.
Agreed to the fullest. I am sure they could have come up with a better selection than that. Even younger people could have done better.
that is one forgotten franchise I'd like to see again. Wait...it was just a single game. Not even a franchise. My bad, but i would still like to see a remake. That and Strider. Since Strider on the PS1 I have been patiently waiting...... I'm still waiting but not as patient anymore.
This is the authors personal list but he passes it over like everyone cares about what game he liked in the past. Out of those 5 games, I only know about KOTOR and Eternal Darkness, Ive never even heard about the rest. His stupid personal list: Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem MVP Baseball 2005 Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Combat Actraiser
Thanks for saving the bother to browse through 5 pages for that stupid list. KOTOR especially doesn't make any sense now that The Old Republic MMO is out and played by millions. If I had to choose a personal favorites I would go with Powerstone and Baldurs Gate. I would have also named Syndicate, X-Com and Deus Ex as my favorites - but all of those have been/will be revived :)
everyone forgot how awesome timesplitters series was.
Gotta love going through six pages for five items.... *facepalm* ;P @above: Mmmmmm Timesplitters. It's about time for another, now isn't it? (there was no intended pun)
I refused. As soon as I saw that, I closed the tab. Eternal Darkness I can see... a little. It wasn't wildly popular, or anything, though. One year of a sports series does not make a franchise. If they'd said MVP Baseball, they might have gotten some points, but singling out one year just makes it a stupid addition to a pretty poor list, overall. Nobody's forgotten about KOTOR, so... it doesn't belong there. Hell, I never played the game, and I haven't forgotten it. The other two... never even heard of em. Well, I HAVE heard of Actraiser, but not enough that I would be happy/sad about its status in any way. All in all, it's a pretty bad list, in my opinion.
It took me about 5 minutes to read this article. there is only two ways i can take the comments that its too long. you are extremely busy (good for you)or extremely horrible at reading (keep at it slugger). either way it probaby took you longer to think about what comment to write than to read it.
THeir list Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem MVP Baseball 2005 Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Combat Actraiser and i have to say wtf to this list!
Everyone name your game!
Fear Effect! I miss my psychological survival horror lesbian chinese action game. I remember Eidos even teased a part 3 but don't know what happened with that. http://youtu.be/PxTR7kfyNAI... Every time I look at the trailer I can't believe that they they cancelled such an awesome looking sequel. Square/Eidos should make it now! ;_;
killer instinct crash bandicoot timesplitters soul reaver
Crash is dead but HELL YEH to Timesplitters!!!!! Also Soul Reaver would be welcome, fantastic franchise. Good choice!
Who could ever forget KOTOR?
Eternal Darkness was a great game, KotoR has been continued with the badass mmo that millions are playing right now, the rest of the list was pretty mehh. to this list i would add Baldurs Gate 1, tales of the sword coast and part 2, we need Baldurs Gate 3!!! Also, a new Jak and Daxter, a proper Neverwinter Nights 3, Onimusha 5, Legacy of Cain, Rise of Legends, Warcraft 4 there are so many awesome franchises that should be continued!
Jet Grind Radio Radiata Stories psychic force 2012 Power stone Hunter The Reckoning Killer 7 sequel please! Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage soul reaver All of these games are classic I could go on forever....
I really wish Silicon Knights would make another ED game. The others on the list, meh.
i would love to see a new Panzer Dragoon.
Combat actually looks like a lot of fun!
Streets of Rage Battle Toads and Double Dragon Def Jam Fight for New York Vector-Man Chrono Trigger Syphon Filter Virtual On (Arcade Game like Armored Core)
