Games take forever to develop now, that you can wait years for the next iteration comes out. So here are some franchises that I miss because it's been too long!

  • Persona: Persona 5 came out in the US in 2017, 5 years ago! I know Persona games take long to come out, but I eagerly wait for the next one!
  • Nier Automata: this game also came out in 2017, and managed to sell 5 million copies! Pretty good for a 'niche' new IP. Since then, we were given a meh remaster of Nier Replicant (had a good OST tho)
  • XCOM: I was excited to hear that Firaxis is finally coming out with a new game (Marvel's Midnight Suns), but it's no XCOM. At least we'll be getting the XCOM-esque Mario Rabbids sequel.

What about you, SW? What franchises do you miss because it's been so long since the last game came out?

Dude there's been way too much Nier and Persona already, no one cares.

Metal Gear on the other hand... 7 years since we were lucky enough to get our hand on Kojima's 10/10 masterpiece Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain.

There's nothing I'd want more than a Metal Gear Solid 6.

Speaking of Metal Gear, I'm playing Twin Snakes for the first time! They did a great job. Almost done with the game.

I wish Namco could furnish us with a new Ridge Racer akin to the Ridge Racers of old. Until then I'll have to keep playing RR7 via RCPS3.

Burnout, Motorstorm and Midnight Club.

We do need a new Ninja Gaiden... but I played Razors Edge for the first time only a couple years ago so ... not as badly as the above.

I was a big Shenmue advocate so I’m glad I got what I wanted with that. Socom is long overdue. Socom deserves like a compilation remake to play online. After that, maybe Warhawk.

And nowadays...

Fallout (hey, that piece of filth, 76, doesn't count)

Splinter Cell (the old stealth games)

Silent Hill (the good ol' stuff)

My jaw hit the floor yesterday when I saw the Flashback 2 trailer. I could not believe my eyes, after 30 years. The original was one of my favorites....

Lets bring back Another World while they are at it... these classic platformers were oozing with style back in the day.

A few others that I would like to see:

  • Metroid Prime
  • Phantasy Star (not the online version) - 4 was so hype, I cant believe they ended it on that
  • Resistance - some of the best guns in gaming, a legit AAA reboot with modern performance would be amazing
  • Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Advanced - endless hours
  • Shining Force - IYKYK

Dino Crisis

Fear Effect (a good one)

Metal Warriors

Sunset Riders

Contra (a good one like the original 3)

NFL Blitz

College Sports

Honestly I could keep going for days and technically some of these games aren't really franchises since they are one and done, but hearing any of these games getting a new entry would be amazing.

@WitIsWisdom: You nailed it with "Turn Based Final Fantasy". Why can't we have another turn based Final Fantasy like 5 or 6? Those games were 10 times better than the modern games. Square seem so bewitched by the capabilities of modern hardware that they completely forget about one the core values of Final Fantasy : A challenging, strategic battle system. I am pretty sure that the next five FF games will all be simple hold-the-A-button-down-and-enjoy-the-graphics style.

SoulCalibur. Namco apparently wasn't happy with VI's sales and now they're milking the f*** out of Tekken and Dragon Ball for the forseeable future, which is sad as VI is closer to II when it comes to content (just missing endings).

It's weird to me that people care more about the story than the gameplay when discussing a fourth Max Payne. The response is always, "He has been through enough." So what? There is no other series that scratches that same action itch. It's easy to think of an excuse to throw him in another adventure. The series never lived up to its potential, gameplay-wise. There's much they can improve upon. Then again, Rockstar's gameplay standards have fallen SO low.
