Top 10 Video Game Franchises That 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 and kick COD's ass.

The Top Ten

1 TimeSplitters

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?

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.

2 Banjo-Kazooie

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

3 Chrono

Chrono trigger is the best RPG of all time, chrono cross was a decent game why not give this series another shot - htoutlaws2012

Actually there is a sequel to chrono trigger on the gamecube its called ChronoChross

I love chrono trigger its one of the best jrpgs ever com on square enix made chrono trigger 2

4 MediEvil

One of the best ps1 games ever made, and very underrated - htoutlaws2012

5 Jet Set Radio

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. - htoutlaws2012

6 Star Wars Battlefront

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. - htoutlaws2012

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

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)

This has a reboot - Sparkjolt

8 Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain
9 World Heroes
10 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.

Or insomnia games unless they made skylanders by the way insomnia was the creator of spyro - Tyoshi

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.

Yes please, I'd love to play a non-Skylanders Spyro game like the original - Aquaturtle

The Contenders

11 Killer Instinct

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 - Magnolia

12 Eternal Champions
13 Shenmue

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. - TheGrammarPolice

Great dreamcast game, good sequal that needs to come back for a third game - htoutlaws2012

14 Alex Kidd in Miracle World
15 Zaxxon
16 Street Fighter
17 Crash Bandicoot

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

N sane is coming soon is that a reboot - Tyoshi

18 Kaiser Knuckle
19 Bonk's Adventure
20 Guitar Hero

Kids need to realize what good music is.

I agree with that a lot bring it back - htoutlaws2012
