Sparked by an intriguing and recent rumor, have a look what 4 PS2-era games our writer thinks Sony should resurrect on the Playstation 4.
Crash was a ps1 series.
True, Crash Bandicoot was, but the series continued into the PS2 era which is why it was included as 1 of the 4 :)
The crash series was over for most after CTR.
A man hopes they're not like the PS2 ones though if it comes back. Those were the reason Crash declined in popularity. Naughty Dog or Sanzaru a man wouldn't mind handling it or another past proven platformer dev from Sony. Crash 3 is the pinnacle of platforming on PS1 and deserves a true sequel.
Actually, the Crash series was over for most after Crash Bash. ;)
@People I still moderately enjoyed Twinsanity. Could have been pretty awesome if it was not rushed, but actually finished game (they cut like... half of the game and it lacked some polish)
Two Words: Dark Cloud. Please Level 5, please make Dark Cloud 3.
shadow of colossus 2 would be nice imagine this gen's open world beauty and an epic battles
Well the story is kinda concluded but make a similar game a la Bloodborne being a sequel to Demon's Souls and a man is in.
I think that a complete remake/overhaul would work nicely but a sequel? Hell no. SotC could already be considered a prequel to Ico (but the stories are like, at least a 1000 years apart. They are only in the same universe) and The Last Guardian is probably going to fit there somewhere. I think that there shouldnt be any direct sequels in the mix. I just want a perfect "trilogy"
when i say SC2 it doesn't mean it has to be a direct sequel >.< lol like final fantasy 1-15 breath of fire 3 and 4 disgaea 2 3 4 5 heck even call of duty
Thats would obviously be more direct sequel than the already existing sequel, Ico. It just doesnt fit... It seems that their idea of "continuing the series" means adding more lore to the Ico/SotC/TLG universe via new games. Revisiting previously shown games/areas would be almost unholy. Besides, how can they even add to the first SotC? Idols were destroyed, the land was "cleansed" and the enter/exit was destroyed. We know something happened afterwards because Ico happened in after SotC (and their stories/lore are somehow related) A prequel to the first SotC? Can you somehow mold the story so that it doesnt change anything in the first SotC? If it would be a direct sequel (like I described earlier) can you mold it to fit inbetween SotC and Ico without changing their universe and still house a possible continuation that TLG may provide? As I said, a direct sequel wouldn't work without upsetting the huge fans of Ico/SotC lore. Making a sequel like that and keeping it fresh and new is extremely difficult, if not impossible. A remake with new feel, graphics and an addition of removed colossi would make up for the sequel.
Jak 4 would be amazing. I know naughty dog is too "mature" now to do it but it would be great if Sony handed the IP to another studio.
It's a shame about Naughty Dog not wanting to do that any more. They're one of the few devs that a man trusts to make 3d platformers and now they won't. Nintendo, Insomniac, Sanzaru, Suckerpunch (they don't anymore either), and Naughty Dog were the only truly great ones at that.
Wild 9 for psone remake or I quite....
I would like to have Dino Crisis, Jade Coccon, Onimusha and Colony Wars resurrected :)
4 PS2-era games I'd love to see get a revisit: Rogue Galaxy Viewtiful Joe Ape Escape Spyro (a true reboot. None of that Skylanders nonsense)
Viewtiful Joe please! Also, a new Rogue Squadron would tickle my fancy. Or maybe something similar but with both a Rebellion and Empire campaign. I would love to play an Empire based Rogue Squadron type game. Being able to use all those different TIE's would be sweet.
I can definitely agree with a Viewtiful Joe and Spyro game!
All 4 games they listed would be nice to get back, would also like to see the return of... -jaws (who wouldnt want an open world where you had to eat people and blow stuff up?) -black -bully -burnout (only had 1 game last gen in the 10 year cycle and paradise was one of the best racing games of all time, such an idiot for selling it, just got it back) -ssx (again we had 1 last gen) -twisted metal (yet again we had 1 last gen) -midnight club (do i need to say it again?) -destroy all humans (last game was pretty much a ps2 game)
I loved Destroy All Humans! I remember playing that back when Blockbuster was around.
yea gotta love the ps2 era, so much variety in its games library, truly is the greatest generation
Hot Pursuit 3 please or High Stakes 2!
had a blast with time splitters back in the day. still waiting on the sequel lol. Dark Cloud was my first ever PS2 game. I really would like to see anything done with these 2 again lol
I may have missed my chance with Time Splitters but I'd love to see a proper entry sans Free Radical.
Socom US Navy Seal will always be my favorite
Sony really needs to bring back the big faces of playstation like Crash,Spyro,R&C,Jak and God of war
