There are thousands of game developers in the world and even more games that have been developed, especially for this console generation alone. With so many ideas and talent, you’d think it would be fairly easy to come across new and successful IPs and franchises on a fairly consistent basis – but that simply is not the case.
Not only are several gaming franchises releasing on yearly schedule now (and I don’t just mean sports games either) but many of them are uninspired and don’t seem to offer anything new or innovative to the industry any longer.
When I say that they need to die, I mean it. Not a reboot, not an overhaul and not a spinoff; they need to die – cease to exist. Each of my choices will be explained well and offer more than just my personal opinion on the franchise, but also explain how it’s good for the industry and how it benefits the developer/publisher specifically.
I’m sure many of you will disagree with my picks and probably have several great ideas of your own, but these are my choices for eight gaming franchises that need to die.
