I remember being really hyped in highschool when they were talking about doing more JetSet; then nothing came of it and radio silence.
Still some of the best soundtracks in gaming.

Another Fear Effect would be awesome too. A very underrated game that not many talk about anymore.

Jet Set Radio was actually on the original list of 10.


A lot of the others were too recent to meet the date cut off I set, I was really looking for series that had been gone awhile.

Parasite Eve had The Third Birthday release 11 years ago.
The most recent Strider game was only 7 years ago.
Devil Survivor 2 was only 9 years ago.
Onimusha Soul released in 2012. I considered not counting mobile games but I was looking for series that publishers aren't even trying to get anything out of.
Siren is close but the last installment was 13 years ago. Honestly was never into the series though so likely wouldn't have made it regardless. Definitely know it has its fans though.
Fear Effect Sedna stunk but was a new game and was only 3 years ago.
Mega Man X I kind of counted as part of the larger Mega Man series, though even if I didn't the new mobile game would probably have kept it off the list.

Lots of great choices there though. I'd love to see a new installment of most of them.

For some reason I got Cold Fear and Fear Effect mixed up when I made my comment lol.

I'd like to see another Cold Fear. Even a remake would be great.

Xenosaga, Wild Arms, Legend of Dragoon, Chrono franchise with Cross and Trigger, Resistance, Xenogears, Twisted Metal, Silent Hill, Turok, Ar Tonelico, Ar Nosurge, Breath of Fire, Siren, Clock Tower, Kid Icarus, Splatterhouse, Enslaved Journey to the West I love that game such a sleeper hit it so needs a sequel.

Kudos for putting Tactics Ogre on the list. I have no idea why we aren't getting a new one, or Final Fantasy Tactics for that matter too.

For me.
1. Vagrant Story
2. Guardian Herores
3. Tenchu
4. Omega Boost

You almost got a new Tenchu but it turned into Sekiro as that was From Software's plan at first.
