I get that Steep attempted to fill the void, but I would love to see SSX or Cool Boarders make a comeback. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater obviously gets consideration but they’ve had way too many chances to rejuvenate the franchise. Either way, I’m down for some arcade-style extreme sport games.

What do you think, SW? What old-school franchise would you like to see come out of retirement?

I'd love to see Mercenaries get resurrected, since the second one was kind of weak. Also, Advance Wars or Battalion Wars would be brilliant to see. Finally, how about a real star wars game like the Rogue Squadron series.

Son of a whore. I entered this thread just to post Mercenaries.

Also, remember the leaked demo of Mercenaries 3? Didnt look bad. Too bad Pandemic got shut down.

Haha, you snooze you lose. :D

Oh yup, I remember that now. Mhmm, it definitely had potential to be a nice game.

Hey ever played Freedom Fighters? What would your opinion on a sequel for that be, yay or nay?

Ultima, Syndicate, Jagged Alliance, Silent Storm, Magic Carpet, Privateer, Day of the Tentacle, Saints Row, Bloodrayne, The Lost Vikings, Dune, Katamari, Simfarm, Command & Conquer, Red Alert, Timeshift.

Some of these i listed are EA games, and i know full well if they were ever released would be filled with online drm, overpriced dlc and lootboxes so its just a wish list and if ever came true would be just complete disappointment. In an alternative reality things would work out, but not in this world.

Golden Sun. The first two games are some of my favorite RPGs of all time, with Golden Sun: The Lost Age easily being a top 20 game for me.

It still saddens me that the series could't have flourished and that Dark Dawn, while not completely terrible, was pretty disappointing in comparison to the previous titles.

Splinter cell if it back to its roots.

I want to see Crysis 4 now because today it wont be ruined as it was ruined last gen. mainly because most developers are doing open ended design now. and Crysis 2 suffer from linearity.

Freelancer and a new Black&White for VR. Id really love to see a new Dark Forces/Jedi Knight game but im afraid it would be bastardised for todays gamers and end up something like TFU.

For now the only one I want to be revived is Star Wars The Force Unleashed franchise. The second one was overlooked due to it's short campaign. But gameplay wise it was much better than Unleashed 1.

Really Disney should have given Star Wars license to 2K games. At least Hangar 13 could make TFU 3.(With Haden Blackman as the director. The same guy that directed TFU 1 and 2)

It really is amazing how people on a videogame forum have no clue at all what 'franchise' means.

The OP asks for franchise you'd like to see revived, there then follows loads of meaningless game lists that include several games that were never ever a franchise.

The vast majority of people in the world are completely stupid, I am convinced of it.

For the OP: Ultima, but not from Richard Garriott who doesn't understand at all how games have moved on from 1990.

What do you think, SW? What old-school franchise would you like to see come out of retirement?

Starcraft, Warcraft RTS, pretty much any of the good RTS games.

Tycoon games, and not that shit they call Planet Coaster where they somehow managed to make it less about running the park and more about making creative things and also copied EA´s DLC scam.

Also No one Lives forever type games, games that have humour.
