Top 10 Forgotten Video Game Series


The Top Ten

1 Crash Bandicoot

I remember him being one of sony's popular mascots throughout the ps1 era. I still have his first 5 games!

What happened to Crash? He used to be so big back in the late 90s and 2000s. Now he's completely irrelevant. I guess it just goes to show ya that nothing lasts forever.

Crash has gone through so many developers over time, but I just wish Naughty Dog would make his games again. - EnchantingWizardOfRhythm

Until crash of the titans, this game was great. Now in crash of the titans everything just looks retarded

2 Battle Toads

They should really consider bringing back Battle Toads - egnomac

It's been years since they made a battle toads game.

Its more of a tmnt rip off

3 Bonk

When I saw the link to this page I already knew who I was going to vote for and I'm glad to see he's in the top 3! It's a real shame that Hudson Soft went under right before they were going to release a new one...

4 Kid Icarus

Woah, the company who came up with this is smart, but the people's software not

What happened... one of the greatest games for NES. Shame its gone...

It's back, but we don't know of a sequel to it's reboot. - Skullkid755

5 Rayman

I miss these series, I used to always play these games. now they have that stupid white rabbit. - dragon13304

Rayman 2 the great escape was my first video game I have ever played! Rayman is awesome and now they ruined it

The only time I remember to be playing a Rayman game is on the Xbox 360, I forgot the name and the gameplay, but I just... well, remember it.

The one where their trying to get to the moon was the best

6 Gex

This was a series about a gecko who was transported to the media dimension after he had swallowed a transmitter that he mistook for a fly. With consoles taken over by first person shooters, it would be great to have series back on the run.

I used to love Gex. I used to love his wisecracking dialogue and love of T.V. and pop culture references.

Vex should come back. He was such a beloved character.

7 TimeSplitters

You know how long I wanted to see a Timesplitters reboot for a decade now and stil never got it, I argue for this is one of the best FPS series I've ever played and now it's 2015 not everyone will remember it's awesomeness - htoutlaws2012

8 Panzer Dragoon
9 Max Payne
10 Golden Axe

The Contenders

11 Chameleon Twist

I've never heard of it, but I guess that's the point.

12 Jak and Daxter

Where is Jak 4? Seriously, I am not the only one expecting another Jak games from you guys Naughtydog. Jak and Daxter games are a much better franchise than Uncharted will ever be. I wouldn't be so upset with Naughtydog if Insomniac didn't do two series at the same time which they did. But you guys take two years (2007, 2009, 2011) just to release an Uncharted game with little innovation or improvement over the last and without doing another video games series at the same time. What? I know that Andy Gavin and Jason Reuben left but that shouldn't mean that you would go corrupt without those two. We expect great games from you with or without Andy and Jason.

This is my idea for the next Jak game you should make. If not Jak 4, how about a whole new Jak and Daxter series say "The Recursor Legacy" (as it is no longer the PREcursor Legacy) Let Jak go through the adventure with only his four original weapons from Jak 2, and throw in the Jak 3 weapons later when he gets into ...more

These are the best games I've ever played EASY. The free roam is excellent, the story is even better, the gameplay is fun and fast, though challenging. The script is funny, the ideas are great (e. G dark jak, desert missions, that impossible tank level on jak 2! ) and it's such a shame that they never make any where NEAR as good platformers nowadays than 2001. Ratchet and Clank? Still a great game, but nothing compared to Jak and Daxter. Thank GOD the Jak games are coming to ps3 in February (the best in my opinion is jak 2) with 3d and trophies. But only 1, 2 and 3 (Jak x and TLF aren't coming)

Why didn't naughty dog ever make a Jak And Daxter for ps3? Sure, uncharted is a great game, and more popular, but think about those poor platform fans who are tired of ratchet and clank. I actually like Jak and daxter way better than uncharted. Here are my ratings:
1. Jak 2: Renegade 10/10
2. Jak and daxter: The precursor legacy 9.5/10
3. Jak 3 9/10
4. The Lost Frontier ...more

these games have never gotten the attention they deserve and have fade into obscurity. - lethaldose

I remember this - lolingdog9000

14 Earthbound / Mother

Only 1 game was released in the US, and sold horribly because it's catchphrase is "This game stinks."

Awesome games, but it just looks Like Nintendo doesn't care for getting more of it's Games to west

I'm feeling that Nintendo actually cares about though, They finally approved EarthBound for VC, Had Ness in Smash Bros. And tried their best to make it appeal to everyone, but failed because of things like Call of Duty and all the others that were pushing us to the side like trash... Itoi must have been sad after the results of the series in America...

I want mother 4 - dinosaur

16 Ice Climbers

the better version of smash brothers but no video game for this except nintendo, gameboy and other old consoles - ronluna

Dig Dug and this are the only on the list that don't suck.


17 Warlords Battlecry

I don't know how people could not love this game

18 Alex Kidd

They will make another Alex Kidd game, when pigs start to fly.

SEGA, continue doing more Alex Kidd games. - playstationfan66

I don't know if was released any game of this serie to other VideoGames
But I think it was released only in Master System.

Breaking news, pigs have been found flying!
I guess we get our Alex Kidd games now, right?

19 Suikoden

20 Dig-Dug

Hell yeah Dig Dug! Whatever happened to that little blue guy? - laotahn
