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 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 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

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 MediEvil

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

5 Jet Set Radio 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 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

7 Killer Instinct 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

8 Legacy of Kain Legacy of Kain

Great games for the ps1, epic series that needs to come back - htoutlaws2012

9 Shenmue 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

10 Spyro the Dragon Spyro the Dragon Spyro is a series of platform games which primarily features the protagonist Spyro the Dragon and his friend, Sparx the Dragonfly.

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.

Best series ever

The Contenders

11 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!

12 Guitar Hero Guitar Hero

Kids need to realize what good music is.

I agree with that a lot bring it back - htoutlaws2012

13 Rock Band Rock Band

Haven't came out with a new one in a very long time.

14 Red Faction Red Faction
15 Castlevania

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

16 Mother/Earthbound
17 Conker's Bad Fur Day Conker's Bad Fur Day
18 Tecmo Tecmo

Remember when football games were very addictive in the 90's then came tecmo bowl which isn't bad it's okay and then came Tecmo super bowl one of the best sports game ever I wish they went back to these style of games not like madden where it's it's too basic. - htoutlaws2012

19 Earthworm Jim Earthworm Jim

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?
