Top 10 Forgotten Video Game Series

The Top Ten
1 Bonk Bonk Product Image

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...

I'm not really in to Bonk.

what kind of name is bonk
no wonder its forgotten

2 Battle Toads

The battletoads are going to be in the new ready player one movie

They should really consider bringing back Battle Toads

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

Its more of a tmnt rip off

3 Crash Bandicoot Crash Bandicoot Product Image

There was an image that shows a figure of Crash Bandicoot with a date that says 11-24-2015, and a quote "He will rise again." This is no exception because that image is totally fake, and Crash Bandicoot never showed up at E3 2015. My last hope for Crash Bandicoot now is for him to be a DLC fighter in Super Smash Brothers for 3DS & Wii U. If that doesn't happen, I will lose all hope for Crash Bandicoot's comeback.

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.

He used to be the ruler of Playstation, and now since Master Chief knocked him off the throne, it wouldn't feel the same again.

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

4 Chameleon Twist Chameleon Twist Product Image

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

I never heard of it.

5 Rayman Rayman Product Image

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.

Rayman was one of my childhood heroes with mario and some others. But mainly mario. In fact, he was my overall video game hero. - astroshark

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

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

6 Gex Gex Product Image

I don't understand what's so great about a gecko that's obsessed with T.V.. Whoever is obsessed with T.V. has no life. Nobody wants to see a wise lizard, unless it's selling them insurance. *coughs* Geico. I remember watching that Dorkly video where Gex meets with his agent, and his video game series is over. He did want to be in Super Smash Brothers for 3DS & Wii U. So, what happened to Gex? Well, he's a Pokemon now & his name is Charizard. Hey, at least he got into Super Smash Brothers... As a Pokemon. I wouldn't want his own video game series to be rebooted.

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 Kid Icarus Kid Icarus Product Image

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.

It's on the 3DS now

8 TimeSplitters TimeSplitters Product Image

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

9 Panzer Dragoon Panzer Dragoon Product Image
10 Jak and Daxter Jak and Daxter Product Image

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

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

Platforming nostalgia turned up to the mx in this series. A true sequel to Jak 3 may never be released, and maybe it will be best that way, but the new HD collection on ps3 is a great buy for old and new fans.

NO game of the generation came CLOSE! I've played less advanced games from 2014!

The Contenders
11 Max Payne Max Payne Product Image

No this will probably come back

12 Earthbound / Mother Earthbound / Mother Product Image

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...

The Earthbound / Mother series was awesome! I downloaded Mother / Earthbound 0's ROM online! Unfortunetly, I only played Earthbound 0 / Mother. Good thing was, I still got to play it! :D Nintendo is stupid for not continuing this... They only rereleased it on the Wii U in late 2013...

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

14 Sly Cooper Sly Cooper Product Image

I really want a sly cooper 5

15 Golden Axe Golden Axe Product Image
16 Commander Keen Commander Keen Product Image

The game of my childhood. I love it but they left it on a cliffhanger. They should definitely do more but don't make it all 3D, keep it classic!

17 Streets of Rage
18 Descent Descent Product Image
19 Ice Climbers

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

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

20 Croc: Legend of the Gobbos Croc: Legend of the Gobbos Product Image

Croc is this crocodile who first appeared in Croc:Legend Of The Gobbos. He got a sequel after its success called Croc 2. This series was made by Argonaut Software. There were some mobile games about Croc, but that's not good enough for him to make a comeback. I say he went to go meet with his agent, and now he's a Pokemon.

21 Warlords Battlecry Warlords Battlecry Product Image

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

22 Alex Kidd Alex Kidd Product Image

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?

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

SEGA, continue doing more Alex Kidd games.

23 Dino Crisis Dino Crisis Product Image

It's like Resident Evil but with DINOSAURS! Which isn't a coincidence because it's made by the same people at Capcom that did Resident Evil. Yes we all know that Dino Crisis 3 was terrible but that could easily be counted as non-canon by anyone who wants to see the series brought back to it's roots. Because the first 2 games alone are DEFINITELY good enough to warrant this series a revival.

24 Suikoden Suikoden Product Image

what happened to this game?

25 Dig-Dug Dig-Dug Product Image

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