15 Franchises That Need A Resurrection

Everyone has that franchise that they loved to death back in the day but always wonder “Why isn’t there another one?”. Well we compiled our list of franchises that desperately need another entry into the series. Or at the very least a Kickstarter campaign. (Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, Capcom, EA, Industry, Kickstarter, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Mega Man, Next-Gen, Power Stone Collection, PS2, PS3, The Legend of Dragoon, Xbox 360)

I want a new Powerstone so much. Even if it was just a hybrid of the two games in HD. Brilliant game, personally the Powerstone kind of arena brawler is the way that new PS Allstar Battle Royale should had gone, just to be more radically different than SSB.
zeal0us  +   1124d ago
Powerstone was a good series sadly I doubt Crapcom would resurrect it. Even if they did no telling how they would screw us.
princejb134  +   1124d ago
I love power stone but smash brothers playing style is more fun to play
christheredhead  +   1124d ago
Powerstone definitely has its own unique vibe though. I really liked the level design in Powerstone 2 and how they mixed it up with the deterioration and build up of tiers for each map. Plus, the item creation was such a blast. I spent so many hours trying different combinations just to get those really fun weapons into the game.

i agree i loved the item creation
i never managed to create all of them though
only about 90% no matter how many hours i put into the game
Venox2008  +   1125d ago
there's a good new Shinobi game for 3DS, I really like it..
Relientk77  +   1125d ago
Pretty good list

I would love to see another Megaman X, Grandia, Breath of Fire, Baten Kaitos

Not on the list but I want to see a new:

Oddworld
Medievil
Syphon Filter
Hicken  +   1124d ago
HELL YES on Grandia and BOF. My favorites were 2 and III, respectively.
Relientk77  +   1124d ago
Grandia 2 is one of my favorite RPGs
solkyoshiro  +   1124d ago
Agreed. Grandia 2 revived my love of RPG's, the soundtrack is so good. A Deus is on my playlist right now.

metsgaming  +   1125d ago
Battlefront, a real ace combat, streets of rage, rogue squadron and many more
FinaLXiii  +   1125d ago
the last ace combat was alright

but i would gladly prefer the anime style cutscenes on it.

there's a really good Ace combat game on 3DS, gameplay like in old good ones :) great game
Fullmetalevolust  +   1125d ago
It was a good list in terms of my own personal taste in games. Great mix of RPG's and action/adventure games.
I would love to see shining force back to its roots, and another grandia. I've always loved the megaman X franchise, but man does it kick my ass in utter frustration lol.
A shinobi game is always welcome if they go the Ninja Gaiden route (not as of late, of course).
And there'll always be a place in my heart for panzer dragoon.

Legacy of Kain, this and Actraiser are begging to be remade, remastered and remixed.

Begging, literally! These two games are classic gold that could only become legendary through the power of these current consoles.

they would achieve Olympian heights if made for the next Gen.
solkyoshiro  +   1124d ago
Actraiser, that's one I haven't thought of forever. Good choice sir.
FinaLXiii  +   1125d ago
Medievil needs a ressurection an HD one.
KeiserSosay4788  +   1125d ago
Legacy of Kain is literally my No. 1 in regards to this article's point. The games always had a pretty good story, great pacing, awesome puzzles, and good bosses. It's pretty difficult to think of many games this gen that have ALL of those attributes.
Skateboard  +   1125d ago
I would like a God Hand 2.
solkyoshiro  +   1124d ago
The world can't handle that level of crazy.
Skateboard  +   1124d ago
I can handle it. GOD HANDO!!!!!
SolidMel  +   1125d ago
Power stone definitely I always enjoyed this party type of game on the Dream cast and still wonder why Capcom has not expanded upon it. Suikoden and Valkyrie Profile I would be all over, though in the case of Parappa I wonder if this Playstation All star brawl will in someway Resurrect the character and the game series and could be a way to gauge just how badly people would want it?
NYC_Gamer  +   1125d ago
Two franchises from that list i would love to be remade

Legacy of Kain
Parappa the Rapper
zero_cool  +   1125d ago
These 3 games need to be resurrected...

Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!

aDDicteD  +   1124d ago
yup bushido blade 2 was one of my favorites
SnipeySnake  +   1124d ago
Final Fantasy. It was sad to see it die after the 10th installment. :(
phatfreddy1978  +   1124d ago
Onimusha anyone?
aDDicteD  +   1124d ago
nice list, dino crisis, legacy of kain, suikoden and megaman x are my most wanted games to come back on that list

hopefully some of those will come back soon
TBONEJF  +   1124d ago
The only game I love to see return IS MEGA MAN X SERIES. Damn I miss Mega Man.
-MD-  +   1124d ago
Dino Crisis and Parappa definitely need new games.

Dino Crisis needs to be a mix of 1 and 2.
playboi28  +   1124d ago
What about Fear Effect?
Tzuno  +   1124d ago
At last a good list we need games like those. I'm stuffed by those 3d shooters and racing games.
icecoldfire  +   1124d ago
3d shooters i am sick of but racers are excellent like forza 4 and trackmania 2 etc
icecoldfire  +   1124d ago
all of them are dead for a reason............
they are all japanese games.
the only japanese alive are final fantasy and street fighter which should be dead but these 15 games alive

P.S Resident evil 6 better be as good as 4 or better or expect an angry 10000 people outside scamcom studios and...........

Zero would have made for a good hack-and-slash action game if Capcom thought of it.

But anyways, Megaman. My favorite all-time video game character still doesn't have a proper game out this generation. And it saddens me. No offence to 9 and 10 but I want a modern Megaman game.
