Top 10 Video Game Franchises That Most Need a Reboot

A list of franchises that haven't been seen for a while that deserve more attention. In other words, games that need to come back.
The Top Ten
1 Banjo-Kazooie Banjo-Kazooie Product Image

The humor and diverse, colorful characters are lacking in today's games. Bring 'em back, and modernize the gameplay (I.e. multi-player)

Instead of making a vehicle based game and ruining everything like banjo kazooie nuts and bolts, if they make a new one they have to make one like the original

Hasn't had a real game since Banjo-Tooie.

2 TimeSplitters TimeSplitters Product Image

I thought you could vote more than once, It was this and Banjo Kazooie easily.
I still play all three timesplitters (mainly 2)
And Banjo Kazooie was easily one of the best games for n64.
Games didn't even matter about graphics, the gameplay and creation was just beautiful, what happened to games like these?

Aaaahhh Timesplitters 2 - what a masterpiece. Future Perfect was great as well but number 4 has to come out. If they make fun of Call of Duty and Halo then I'm sure it would be relavent today and it would make lot's of sales. Kinda like Saints row 3 & 4 and they have sold well.

Best part of game was me and my wife could play cooperatively against bots and we could customize their difficulty and how many. And it gave us a glorious amount of statistics!

I've played Timesplitters 2 since first grade, and I can't wait for the fan-made Timesplitters Rewind to come out.

3 Chrono Chrono Product Image

Chrono trigger is the best RPG of all time, chrono cross was a decent game why not give this series another shot

4 MediEvil MediEvil Product Image

They cancelled medievil 3 for PS3. So sad

5 Jet Set Radio Jet Set Radio Product Image

1st one was on the Dreamcast that was a cult classic and it's sequal ended up on the Xbox and that was pretty good too I'd love another another one to be back.

6 Star Wars Battlefront Star Wars Battlefront Product Image

The first one was great, but I loved the second one. It's one of the best games I've ever played. They need to make a game for the PS3 or PS4.

1: Star Wars Battlefront
2: Call of Duty (Ghosts sucked)
3: Crash Bandicoot
4: Spyro The Dragon
5: Mercenaries

Besides knights of the old republic, these games actually feel like your experiencing a star wars game as you pick a side and kill all enemies to win the game.

I loved playing battlefront 2 for the PS2 especially when I was in jabba's palace. Since I was like 4 years old and didn't know what was going on I just fought/ride the rancor and die (and I liked it I think)

They were going to make a third one, but Disney stopped Lucas Arts. Disney should of stayed away from Star Wars.

7 World Heroes World Heroes Product Image
8 Legacy of Kain Legacy of Kain Product Image

One of the best platform puzzle games, with a dark and engrossing story, set in an ancient, Gothic landscape, swarming with mysticism, eldritch horrors and engaging characters. This reboot is long overdue, and I'm not talking about the horrendous failed attempt by Climax or that deficient arena spinoff, Nosgoth. I'm talking about a true-to-form, fan-pandering, lore-rich, blood-dripping (or soul-siphoning for that matter) reboot. I'd even settle for a spiritual successor, like Xenonauts vs XCOM, but something (anything! ) worth my time. PS - Eat dirt, Climax! >:(

9 Bonk's Adventure
10 Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain Product Image
The Contenders
11 Spyro the Dragon

The video game company that made Skylanders claimed that Skylanders is a Spyro game. Now the 2 doubtful questions are: If Skylanders is a Spyro game, how come the plot has nothing to do with him or why would someone make Spyro into a tool to start Skylanders? I say Spyro the Dragon needs to go to Sony. That's where he belongs.

Never played Skylanders, it looks okay, but seriously. Spyro's been ignored ever since Skylanders Giants. Once Skylanders eventually stops, Spyro needs to be sold to some other company (this is just my opinion, if you disagree with me, that's fine)

Since Crash got a remaster, I'm sure that if it's successful, they'll eventually do a Spyro remaster at some point as well. I hope so. This was my favourite game when I was younger.

I'm sorry, but Activision just isn't handling Spyro the greatest.

12 Killer Instinct Killer Instinct Product Image

Year, sure! I agree with this one. The game had some very cool elements for that time (life bars, "auto-seconds", "combo breakers" etc)
I'm sure, Killer Instinct's comeback would be epic

13 Earthworm Jim Earthworm Jim Product Image

Out of all of the 90's mascots that came and went, Earthworm Jim was the best one. Earthworm Jim 3D killed the franchise! So why not make a reboot?

14 Shenmue Shenmue Product Image

Shenmue was supposed to have 16 chapters but SEGA lost the rights to the game, so sadly it doesn't look like we will see the rest of the story.

There are so many questions the you need answers. We found the pheonix's, now what? What is the proof? How do we find the proof?

Please, whoever owns the game, finish the story.

It got third game, it wasn't good at all.

15 Eternal Champions Eternal Champions Product Image
16 Alex Kidd in Miracle World Alex Kidd in Miracle World Product Image
17 Zaxxon
18 Street Fighter
19 Crash Bandicoot Crash Bandicoot Product Image

Crash was amazing back then, now with Activision owing him. They just don't really care about him. The franchise goes to Sony.

Crash Bandicoot was one of the series that made my childhood. It needs to come back and soon!

No dice. A great classic

20 Gex Gex Product Image

YEAH! Never going to happen. Dorkly has shown us what happened to Gex. He's now a Pokemon. He first started off as Charmander, then evolved to Charmeleon & Charizard. At least he got in Smash Bros. as Charizard. Who even wants to play video games about a gecko obsessed with T.V. , anyway? How stupid!

21 Kaiser Knuckle
22 Mother/Earthbound Mother/Earthbound Product Image
23 Conker's Bad Fur Day Conker's Bad Fur Day Product Image
24 Castlevania Castlevania Product Image

Forget amnesia. This series is easily the best horror franchise out there, unfortunately its good days ended with the ps1

25 Guitar Hero Guitar Hero Product Image

Kids need to realize what good music is.
