"Creating a solid, enjoyable, and most importantly profitable franchise is never an easy task, and although there are numerous exceptions each year, there also happens to be plenty of duds as well. With the rise of sequels that swarm shelves every year, it is a wonder as to how these franchises manage to stay so popular and remain credible additions to the faithful fans.
We at Gamer 2.0 understand that notion, which is why we have compiled a list of our Favorite Franchise Revivals, spanning over twenty years of video game history. These franchises are not all just enhanced high-def improvements over past games, but franchises that have remained stagnant or dormant for a few years only to return with a completely fresh and new idea."
