From long-running series that ran out of steam to the sleeper games that failed to catch on, here are the eight game franchises Gabe Gurwin wants to see revived.
I'd love to see another Manhunt, The Suffering, Otogi, Spinter Cell, Fatal Frame and another Oddworld game. Loved Strangers Wrath and they were doing a follow up called The Brutle Ballad of Fangus Klot but it was never to be. Also loved the first Lords of Shadow! Wasn't expecting it to be so epic and lengthy but I loved it!
The Suffering 2 freaked me out
Glad to see that someone else is a fan of the Suffering and Manhunt. I've been hoping for a sequel to either of those for years.Splinter Cell is excellent too but I'm sure we'll see a sequel at some point since it's a huge franchise. Can't wait for that but I wish they'd bring back Michael Ironside. Another Soldier of Fortune would be great, a real sequel to SoF 2 Double Helix.
I loved Manhunt! I loved the atmosphere and the characters creeped me out! I play it on my Pro every now and again but a modern take would be awesome! Also there was an N64 game called Shadowman and it blew me away with its story back in 99. I'd like to see a modern interpretation of it as well.
Eternal Champions,onimusha,legend of Dragoon,twisted metal,shinobi,Def jam (icon never happened)Mag,and Socom
Eternal champions on sega cd hype set fatalities of any fighting game. Would love to see a remake of that.
Eternal champions for sega CD had the best fatalities of any fighting game and a really cool roster of characters. Would love to see a remake of that.
Brave Fencer Musashi Grandia Skies of Arcadia Legend of Dragoon Dark Cloud Tactics Ogre Syphon Filter Ape Escape Tenchu
Grandia was a series although a remake would always be welcome. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... Skies of Arcadia. Fans have been clamoring for a remake or a revival for about 16 years. Dark Cloud (still have the original) was actually followed by Dark Cloud 2 or Dark Chronicles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... and you can get both games from PSN that will run on the PS4. Legend of Dragoon (PS1). I would have liked to play this game but I made it a policy not to purchase old games after I purchased a new (in this case a PS2) console although I have no problems with playing games that I originally owned since the PS2 was backward compatible. Can't really comment on the others although I do understand that Tactics Ogre was well received.
I would love a remake or sequal to Ghost Hunter that was on PS2 i thought that game was great and quite creepy too, or at least bring it to PS2 classics on PS4 Sony as it is one of your own studio game's. But yeah pretty much all the PS2 era francises should be brought back as some of the best games ever made were back then.
Eternal Darkness and Nightmare Creatures would be two more.
LA Noire. That dead series that didn't just get ported to Switch and current generation consoles.
That doesn’t mean they’re making a new one
It's a clear sign it's not dead, though.
It isn’t, actually.
It absolutely is. Sorry one of the games you listed doesn't make sense, it happens, but you are taking a loss on that one.
Virtual On Voot Virtua Fighter Zaxxon PSVR Joust Burning Rangers PSVR Power Stone Discs of TRON PSVR
Condemned Gladius Afterlife Tenchu Onimusha Skate.
L.A Noire I really want a sequel to I am all in for Sly Cooper as well but I also want Sony to bring back Wild Arms
I doubt Castlevania is dead. With the recent Netflix series being a hit, I can hardly see Konami not milking this franchise to the ground. Even if it doesn't have the creative talent to pull off a good game in the series.
Onimusha, Vagrant Story, Blood will tell, Medievel, Kotor and Conker would be my picks.
A couple of those aren't franchises since they only ran for one game, but I'd love for L.A. Noire to be a franchise. And yes, Sly 5 please! Oh, and a new Jack and Daxter would be nice too. And a reboot of Syphon Filter. Tomba's probably never coming back but I can dream. Manhunt. Bully. Legend of Dragoon. Chrono. Oddworld. Beyond Good and Evil. How much time do you have? We can be here all day.
