Iconic Xbox franchises that lay dormant – Pt. 1

Provided that everything we learned at E3 2018 about Microsoft's intentions to invest huge on new ideas and bringing the Xbox brand back to a creative standpoint, there are some very well loved franchises that they have in their stable which have been under-utilized. These games not only tested out new gameplay concepts and provided fun gameplay for many players, they helped give an identity to Xbox which made it stand apart from other systems at the time - something they struggle with today.

“Back when open-world wasn’t a dirty word”

When did it become dirty

PhoenixUp2093d ago

That’d apply to that series than the game design itself

Spurg2093d ago

Kind of a pathetic list tbh....no Alan wake, Lost Odyssey, Banjo, prefect dark and many more games.

Hitman07692093d ago

It is only one part of a series of articles. Thank you for the feedback.

Tobse2093d ago

Seems to me the article is more about og Xbox and not everything Xbox

KillBill2092d ago

Some games mentioned have been brought back via backwards compatible and I don't consider them really dormant. They for sure could use a remake or be brought back with a new title. Brute Force is I think one of my hope for list that would stand the best by a good engine and a new team behind it.

A new Brute Force would look amazing with next gen graphics

Lost Odyssey
Fable 4 (rumored)
Fund a next gen Alan Wake
Perfect Dark (3rd person)
Cuphead 2 (released this gen I know)
Banjo Kazooie remake.
Advent Rising remake. That's my wish list

Been playing Panzer Dragoon Orta on my Xbox X. This game still looks and plays amazing, would love to see Sega bring this franchise back.

Eight long forgotten Microsoft IPs

GamesAsylum: "Many long forgotten IPs were launched on the original Xbox, back in the early days when Microsoft was trying to broaden the console’s appeal as wide as possible. They didn’t seem particularly bothered if they had a hit on their hands or not – in an attempt to steal some limelight from Sony and Nintendo, they were simply focused on getting new games on the shelves, and plenty of press coverage to accompany them."

Blinx should be the Xbox One's mascot. It definitely had a good premise and the gameplay was pretty ahead of itself at the time.

If I was MS I would consider Blinx more of a mascot than Conker, since Conker still has old ties to Nintendo.

How about me being the 100th person from n4g to ask for a crimson skies. That snoopoy dog fighting xbl game was the closest thing to it. I swear there was some kind of connection.

Next up that ninja demon game Otagi

HaveAll33589d ago

I love to Crimson skies I wish they would do that again or even a MechAssault 1. Loved the online on both of those games.

maniacmayhem3589d ago

A Crimson Skies or any type of air combat whether it's in the skies or in space is welcomed.

christocolus3589d ago

Phil plans to bring back some old ips so I'm guessing we will see some of these on the xbox one at some point. My list goes like this though

Crimson skies
Mech assault
Midtown madness
Lost odysee
Fuzion frenzy
Kung fu chaos

darthv723589d ago

Crimson skies would definitely be a hit if it was remade. Perhaps sega can resurrect propeller arena as well.

Blinx was actually planned to be the Xbox mascot but Halo stole the thunder

denawayne3589d ago

No Mech Assault or Crimson Skies?

GamingAngelGabriel3589d ago

Don't you remember what happened with the original Xbox? Blinx WAS the mascot, and no one cared. That being said, I'd love a sequel.

maniacmayhem3589d ago

I think Xbox tried to push Blinx but it just didn't go anywhere due partly to Halo.

But I think with the FPS genre being a dime a dozen nowadays a return to the mascot days can happen and Blinx could lead the way for the Xbox.

NonShinyGoose3588d ago

There was a sequel...
