Top Ten Dead Video Game Franchises that Need Another Game as of 2019

RadioHead03
Sometimes video game franchises haven’t had a game in awhile, and kinda confirms that franchise is dead. But here are ten dead video game franchises that need another game. It happened to Crash, it happened to Spyro, it happened to Medevil, so it should happen to these game franchises as well.

The Top Ten

1 TimeSplitters

A new TimeSplitters game could be interesting. Also, I noticed that Half-Life is on this list. Half-Life isn't a dead video game franchise. It's on hiatus. Half-Life 3 will come out eventually.

YES! I don't think they will make a 4th, but fans are working on a fan game called "TimeSplitters: Rewind" and it looks REALLLY good so far!

This game was my childhood, but if they make a sequel, they might make it really trendy and overuse CGI to the point where it's just pathetic. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Please. - TriggerTrashKid

2 Jet Set Radio

I have played the demo on Xbox 360 and it's cool, but it'll probably never make a comeback since Sega ignores most of their franchises. - Gametoon

UNDERSTAND UNDERSTAND UNDERSTAND

Yo, this franchise was awesome! What happened Sega? Make another new game please! - RadioHead03

The problem is that Sega doesn't even care about their other series other than Sonic anymore. - Mcgillacuddy

3 Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Personally, I want Jedi Knight to get a new game more. - myusernameisthis

Bring back the pre EA era - epicdongus69

Oh Yeah Yeah

Yes please - iliekpiez

4 Chrono

A new chrono game would make so happy. - Silence4101

A new Chrono game would be sweet. I loved Chrono Trigger on the SNES, and Chrono Cross for the PS1. come on Square, make a new Chrono game. - RadioHead03

5 SSX

SSX, wow what an amazing franchise! It takes snowboarding games to the next level, and makes them fun. SSX 3 is one of the best gaming experiences i’ve ever had. SSX Tricky was awesome. I’ve haven't played the original SSX yet. SSX On Tour was good but a huge step down after SSX 3. SSX Blur was... eh. SSX 2012 was good, but the physics were weird. As of now, we haven't seen an SSX game since 2012. We need a new SSX game similar to SSX 3 or Tricky. But hey SSX 3 just recently got a backwards compatibility with the Xbox One so that might mean something... - RadioHead03

6 Burnout

Love this, so much fun!

I only played Revenge and Paradise so far. They were good, though. - Gametoon

I miss Burnout! For the love of God just make a new one. Takedown, Revenge and Paradise are three of the best racing games ever. - PlanetDeadwing

We need this supreme racing game back. It’s better than Hot Wheels. - BeastKool

7 Road Rash

That would be fun. - LightningStrike

I used to have this game on the PS1 and I genuinely believe it needs to be revived. It would be especially perfect as a rated M game considering how violent the idea of it was. - Mcgillacuddy

I remember this franchise. I have Road Rash 3D on my PS1, and it’s pretty fun. - RadioHead03

8 F Zero

Yes. This needs to happen. - TheAwesomeBowser

This would be cool. I want a new F-Zero for Switch. - Gametoon

I hope it happens, they tried to make one for the wii u but they cancelled it. - myusernameisthis

It's likely to happen. They did a new Star Fox, Bomberman (even though those sucked), and they're releasing Metroid Prime 4. A new F Zero might be right around the corner. - Mcgillacuddy

9 Banjo-Kazooie

This won't happen since Microsoft did almost nothing with Rare, except some crappy games. - Gametoon

I'm not saying that Nintendo should buy out Rare, but I have a few problems with Microsoft's acquisition of Rare:
1. What did Rare EVER do for Microsoft?
2. Since Rare is a British company, while Nintendo is Japanese, I love the idea of Nintendo having more connections with other cultures.

They have Made a new banjo kazooie game but it sucks

Probably won't happen, since Microsoft bought Rare they've hardly payed any attention to poor Rare - myusernameisthis

If Rare made another Banjo-Kazooie game it would not be the same because the main developers of the game is not with the company. - Tag365

10 Portal

They won't do this. They don't know how to make trilogies. - Gametoon

The problem with this is that Valve doesn't care about making games right now. They are fully concentrated on profit. Maybe someday they'll come back but it's hard to tell at this point because they haven't announced anything in several years. They recently made some online card game that I forgot the name of, but it did not last at all because it was a pay to win cashgrab. I feel like this company is turning into one of those scumbag game companies but trying to stay more under the radar instead of being blatant about it. - Mcgillacuddy

Portal 3 would be awesome. But I seriously doubt they could come up with a good story for it... - EvanTheNerd

Valve is terrible at finishing trilogies, though. - TriggerTrashKid

The Newcomers

? Ico
? Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor

The Contenders

11 Kid Icarus

Please make another Kid Icarus game, Sakurai-san. Bring Project Sora back from the dead.

Kid Icarus Uprising 2 for the win - BeastKool

We haven't seen a new Kid Icarus game since 2012. Maybe Sakurai is busy with Smash. So I respect that. - RadioHead03

12 Half-Life

Team fortress 2
Half life 2
Portal 2
Left 4 Dead 2
Yep Valve can't count - LuckyLeftist

The reason there isn't a half life 3 or episode 3 is because valve can't count to 3

The little zombie things gave me nightmares

Guys, Half Life 3 is coming. Just wait 234 years. - RadioHead03

13 Crimson Skies
14 Bully

Actually, Rockstar confirmed that Bully 2 is their next game. They recently announced that voice actor tryouts are open. - Mcgillacuddy

That has not been officially confirmed yet, just a rumour at the moment - kanetheundertaker25

Bully is one of the most underrated games in my opinion. A sequel would be awesome. - RadioHead03

According to rumors and credible leakers: Bully 2 is the next game to be released by Rockstar and that’s it’s been in production since 2012. If all that is true, then I can already tell this game is gonna be awesome. - nintendofan126

15 Earthbound

PLEASE, we NEED either Mother 4, localised Mother 3 (ideal name: EarthBound Future) uncensored or a collection of the entire trilogy (my ideal name for it: EarthBound: Reborn Trilogy).

Me: Hey Nintendo I have a suggestion for a game...
Nintendo: Oh sure anything, except if you say Mother 4 if you do you'll die!
Me:... - tacoperson

Still waiting for Mother 3... - RadioHead03

Meanwhile at E3...
Nintendo: "We have new Kirby, Super Smash Bros. contenders, a New Mario Game, new Metroid, new Yoshi, new console, new hats, new phone apps, our own web browser, new jobs, and Disney bought us! Oh, and no Mother 4." - Mcgillacuddy

16 Skate

I would literally do anything for a new skate game

These games took down the skateboarding video game titan Tony Hawk. Skate takes realistic approach to the Skateboarding game formula, and does it well. All 3 Skate games are fantastic, and Skate It was pretty cool. As of 2010, we haven't seen a new Skate game. We need Skate 4! - RadioHead03

17 Crash Bandicoot

We want a new game, not more remakes. - Gametoon

There makind a racing game about this franchise in 2019 for Nintendo Switch

And no, I don't mean remakes

Oh yeah, hell yeah - TriggerTrashKid

18 Rayman

Rayman is far from a dead game franchise. Rayman Origins and Legends were fantastic games. - Mcgillacuddy

19 World Heroes
20 Kaiser Knuckle

Unlike Street Fighter II, this game DID have beautiful characters in its playable roster instead of the BOSS roster. - Interrogator

21 System Shock
22 Team Fortress
23 Pandemonium
24 Ninja Gaiden
25 Darkstalkers Darkstalkers
26 Earthworm Jim

My dad wants this and so do i. - myusernameisthis

27 Sonic Adventure

We need that Sonic Adventure 3. - EvanWellens

Sonic Heroes and Sonic Adventure - BeastKool

UUGGGHHH! I AM TIRED OF YOU FRICKS! YOUR RUINING SONIC FOR EVERYONE! WHY DO WE NEED SONIC ADVENTURE 3? WHY! That was a joke, I actually want a sonic adventure 3. - myusernameisthis

28 Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance
29 Super Monkey Ball

There is gonna be one - Crizz

Hey Sega, I'd like a new GOOD Super Monkey Ball game with a side of Segagaga localization please. - epicdongus69

There's a fan game being worked on - myusernameisthis

30 Guitar Hero

I still love this game and play it today. Shame it went under.

YAS! I LOVE THIS FRANCHISE!

Guitar Hero Live was a flop from what i’ve heard. But Rock Band 4 was a success. I kind of feel bad for Guitar Hero. Activision just doesn't know how to make a Guitar Hero game. If they try to make a new one, it might flop. But if they do know how to figure it out, then they can make a new Guitar Hero game. - RadioHead03

31 Ice Climber

WHY? They need more purpose than a Smash filler! - RosalinaX

32 Neverwinter Nights
33 Jak and Daxter

Haven't been a game for almost 10 years now. The lost frontier was released November 2009.

Nah, I think the series ended perfectly. It doesn't need a sequel. - Drawbox

Yes. - RadioHead03

34 Tomodachi Life

Especially now with the newer customization options on the Switch

Please Tomodachi Life for the Switch! - LittleAwesomeApple

Tomodachi Life 2, please! It's been a while since Nintendo released this game, and hopefully, there'll be more options for you to choose in the game. - IceFoxPlayz

More like tomodachi 3
think it should be called tomodachi life 2 instead of tomodachi 3?
heh I wanted to call it tomodachi life 2 as well except something blew my mind
like I'll blow your minds
tomodachi life is a sequel to tomodachi collection
never heard of tomodachi collection?
cause it came 2009 & was exclusive to japan - e9090

35 Whacked!
36 Tak and the Power of Juju
37 The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning

Theirs a new one coming out peter knetter is postively happy

I used to love Spyro. - 2storm

38 Midnight Club

Me and my friends had loads of fun with this! One of the few games every single one of us actually owned.

39 Skylanders

In 2019 we need Trap Team Imaginators where you can create villains to battle. We definitely need that. - Carly19781

This is a good thing that the franchise is dead. - RadioHead03

Imaginators killed the series, we need a remake of trap team or maybe even a new one that is as good as trap team.

definitely

40 Klonoa

Aw, Klonoa. Man I remember playing that game on the Wii. Why can't Bandi Namco make a new game. - RadioHead03

41 Silent Hill

Please make a new game - drooper

Yes. I would honestly like to see another one like Shattered Memories.

Latest we got was PT. - Cyri

42 Disney Infinity

Bring it back already!

Yes please bring this back that would be nice - Lpsgirl

I miss this biting it back

43 Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain
44 Star Wars: Republic Commando

I want it but I doubt it will happen. A sequel to the game was in development in the early 2000's but was cancelled and also EA. - epicdongus69

45 Borderlands

Oooh, a new Borderlands is coming out. - RadioHead03

I loved Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for the PS4. I thought Both 2 and The Pre-Sequel were good games. I think another Borderlands sequel needs to happen. - B1ueNew

46 Golden Sun

There were just so many unanswered questions throughout Dark Dawn and a gigantic percent of the world remains unexplorable. And come on, what's with that cliffhanger ending? - xdanxlei

47 Nintendogs

O yes

48 Lego Star Wars

Good news: a new one will be out next year! - myusernameisthis

49 Super Mario Galaxy

There are so many 3d games that are used in motion controls, and this is no different. The only reason why Smg3 hasn't come out yet is because Miyamoto said that the motion controls would be awkward and that is absurd because lots of modern games have motion controls on the switch like Mario party for example and Odyssey, which is a 3d game for crying out loud, every Super Mario Galaxy game gets a good reception and Nintendo should make this for the next 3d mario game.

Please no, the galexy games sucked, they made me sick with the camera. - myusernameisthis

no.

50 Deltarune

Honestly, consider this: Deltarune has only one chapter as of now. Sure, the other chapters will take time, but people will get rowdy and want more. It's a good game, as well as an UNDERTALE spinoff. For those thinking, no. It is not UNDERTALE 2. I'm also not saying this just because of people wanting more of this game. If you play the game, you get tons of plot development and mysteries waiting to be solved. The ending leaves many cliff hangers and people don't like to be left hanging. What happened to Lancer and Ralsei? Do Kris and Susie ever go back to the Dark Realm? We may never know until Chapter 2. Plus, this may lead to us finally finding out who W.D. Gaster is (There's and Easter egg where his face glitches onto the screen for a few seconds).

Theory: chapter 2 will have you “babysitting” papyrus
