Five Great Franchises Being Inexplicably Ignored (And a Few That Should Be)

Some of the best franchises in gaming are currently sitting on the shelf, without new iterations or reboots to continue their legacies, and I think that’s a shame. Let’s go through and pick five great brands that are being inexplicably ignored, and champion their cause for a new generation.

Crystalis, ignored since 1990. Enough said. I doubt Star Tropics+Zelda 1+Final Fantasy combined could beat it in the day, it was that good. And oddly enough, made by SNK of all people...

I bought this for 8 bucks recently. A great game. I was surprised when I heard that it hasn't had a sequel.

Nice, I'm trying to get a second copy just to hoard them, but it was $5 and I already had one. But yeah, did you at least get half way through it? It stats to get REALLY REALLY good about then. It had the terrible GBC port, but I don't count that at all. Not that it's a bad game, it's just not as good as the original at all. Doesn't it just beat the snot out of all other RPG's/AA's on the NES?! It's such a shame. :(

i thought FF8, 9 and 10 were good games :/ i played the hell out of 13 then got into the open world and everything killed me so i rage quited!

Oh God. Yes, please.

I would love to see TimeSplitters nonsense in this Gen, or Next Gen.

Despite his obvious fan recognition, Megaman is being ignored to abusive levels lately.

I'd like to see a new Quake in the vein of the original. And a GOOD new Burnout.

And for god's sake, give me ZOE 3!

But, but, but... he's in Street Fighter x Tekken! o.o

I wish they would have resurrected and used the Nintendo Power name. I had almost every issue starting from around Mario 3 forward, and at one time had Nintendo Power foldout posters as an upper border on the wall, circling my entire room.

I also have well, every issue of Nintendo Power and also some Fun Club Issues before it transformed into Nintendo Power. They are all stacked in a plastic tote lol. Most have probably turned yellow by now. If you would like the whole collection as a torrent there is one here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Da... Torrent magnet link.

Between the low sales, the shit in the memory that simply dies and the regional crash on the Gamepad. This is a console that will become stupidly rare in a few years.
