Top 10 Video Game Franchises


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Batman Arkham

Some of the best video games of all time
Arkham City is one of the best games ever made and Arkham Asylum is on par as one of the best of the generation. Arkham Knight is arguably better than its predecessors for the complete batman experience. The whole game series has revolutionized the superhero genre much in the way the Dark Knight trilogy has. It is one of the few franchises where all the games are of excellent quality like Uncharted. - 11ahmu

24Metal Gear Solid

If you've played a single game in the franchise, you'd vote for this guaranteed. I played Sons of Liberty first, and even not knowing a single thing that was going on, it immediately made me know that the Metal Gear Solid series would be the best franchise I'd ever play. The stories can make you cry in each and every game. They're like movies. - Zeebs

You people have never played Metal gear solid yet otherwise you would Vote this!
I'm sure after release of The Phantom pain it'll gain it's true rank

26? Call of Duty is all the way up? What is this list.

25Mass Effect

18? Mass effect should be at least top ten, contains great storytelling that draws you in and actually gives you decisions to make that affect the galaxy throughout the franchise, it is a must have for all gamers

I love halo but mass effect has a better story and characters, mass effect should be way up in the list

This should be number 1. GOAT. Holds a special place in my heart.

26Street Fighter

Uh hello everybody?! You guys should know that this is one of the best fighting games of all time! Heck, it should be at least on the top 5. Also, it should definitely be on top of the other fighting games listed here. Especially virtua fighter.

People! Why is this number 51? It started fighting games. Game that you love like Mortal Kombat, Virtua Fighter, Tekken, Super Smash Bros, and more!


FIFA is very fun and interesting to play. It gets better every year. It also has great graphics and can get tense. It will give you a interest in soccer.

Gif as great but the only problem is theirs really know change in the game no new players just the graphics changed slightly but it's still ok

I'm actually surprised this isn't higher! The Tales franchise is great! - RaineSage


Laugh out loud this list is retarded fallout is so much better than the vast majority of franchises

This franchise nearly died, but it brought itself back to life. That is something you don't see at all

What 140 on a top franchise list. I Don't Want To Live In This Planet AnyMore

How the hell is this so low? Too many peasants.

33God of War
34Gran Turismo

Hell yes! This needs to be higher!

35Sim City
36Spyro the Dragon

I love this franchise and... I don't have anything left to say really. Plus dragons are BADASS!

The franchise helped make Insomniac one of the better-known devs in the gaming industry.

Spyro is awesome! Well he was awesome untill skylanders ruined him.

39Team Fortress

Team Fortress two is, in my opinion, the best shooter ever. It has a stylistic and beautiful art style and runs very well. It has genius writing and voice acting that add to the atmosphere and creates a great sense of humor. It has fast-paced gameplay with nine diverse classes that make this game great.

With 9 entertaining classes at your disposal team fortress 2 is easily one of the best shooters, pc games, and free games by far. Whether you want to play as the fast moving loud mouthing scout or the sandvich loving minigun wielding Russian the heavy its a fun and wildly entertaining game that will have you never leaving the computer screen.
