The Resistance Isn’t Over: Unfinished Stories in Games

As the video game medium continues to mature, so do the narrations and tales within them. Stories are integral to the experience, so it’s important for their creators to finish them on the right note. The Resistance franchise always struggled with its identity, with each iteration being different from the last, but its story and mystery kept them all fused together. After more than five years of struggling to fend off Chimera for humanity’s survival, with just a one minute announcement, many were left asking, “That’s it?”

There are untied ends everywhere you look -- companies are leaving ever more reasons to return to a series and milk it at a later date, as do movie franchises.

Resistance is my favourite franchise, i fell in love with FOM, I hope there are many more games to come.

Resistance imo shits on killzone.

cpayne931959d ago

Single player does but killzone has better multiplayer imo.

Ghost2501959d ago

killzone 2 just has too much grenade spammers and people spawn trap on that game way too much and killzone 3 people wanna plant fucking claymores everywhere it starts to get annoying. resistance multiplayer was pretty good on 1 and 2 not so much on three sadly. but hey different strokes for different folks

I prefer Resistance for their campaigns.

Resistance 3 was one of the most underrated shooters of 2011!

its a shame it sold so bad , for such a good game its better than 1/2 the games out there that have sold over 1m

Ghost2501959d ago

yeah it really sucks man, resistance is one of those rare gems in a over-saturated genre that definitely deserves more attention than it got.

That's honestly the reason Insomniac put aside the Resistance franchise. No one ever really supported it. I bought all 3 within days of it coming out but I was one of the few. You can't blame them either. Too many games with very little profit isn't good.

It's sad. I really loved Resistance. The controls in R3 were literally perfect.
