I’ve been dwelling on this topic ever since we heard the rumours that Sony secretly bought the Crash Bandicoot IP from Activision and were planning to revive the character. But then we heard that Activision still owns the IP although they want it to return.
See, most gamers have a franchise from the past that they absolutely treasure and, more so, would pay any price to see return. Now that the new generation is here, it is definitely an opportunity for classics or relics to be born anew. Not to mention many completely new IPs too of course.
But if you had a choice though, and I mean really had a choice, which would be the one franchise you would do anything to see come back? Already we are seeing Star Wars: Battlefront rise from the ashes with a reboot, so surely anything is possible. And my favourite game in the world Metal Gear Solid is making a grand return soon, although not so grand right now with the bafflement surrounding Ground Zeroes. And Hitman is getting another reboot too, so I’m having my prayers answered here.
I’ve never quite forgotten Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and would have gone to great lengths to see a third game. No, I’m not talking about that MMO The Old Republic. Then again, BioWare’s recent decline over the years has made me doubt their ability to deliver something at the same quality.
So which franchise would it be? I can’t think of one right now, as my wishes are being answered.
