Have you ever thought back to games you played in your childhood and wished they’d come back with a sequel or a reboot? Well that’s what this list is all about. We compiled a list of 10 games we’d like to see return once again. Feel free to comment on which games you’d like to see. Here is our first installment:
The Legend of The River King
If you haven’t heard of The Legend of The River King you can learn all about it from our previous article. Natsume hasn’t put out a River King game in seven years and we feel that their about due for another installment in the franchise. The River King series was highly addictive and would look awesome on the Nintendo 3DS or WiiU.
It’s been six years since we’ve seen Playstation’s original mascot and his comeback could come on the Playstation 4. Having an old school platforming Crash Bandicoot game on the playstation 4 would be great, but don’t hold your breath. With two cancelled games in 2010 it looks like Crash Bandicoot is pretty much done for.
Arguably the best game to ever be released on the Sega Dreamcast, Shenmue fans are looking for more. They got their wish in 2002 with the Xbox release of Shenmue II but that left many unanswered questions to the franchises story. An ending to the franchise with a trilogy sounds like an ideal route to take, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens with Shenmue.
Another Dreamcast classic, Power Stone was hands down the best fighter to appear on the console. A Power Stone game on the WiiU would be huge, and with it’s fanbase would be a massive seller for Capcom. If you haven’t tried Power Stone and you’re a Super Smash fan you should definitely give it a try.
Survival Horror games are a dying breed, and one of the best of the genre needs to make a comeback. Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem for the Nintendo Gamecube was a creepy classic, and we’ve been itching for a sequel for years. Nintendo still owns the trademark for Eternal Darkness so there is hope to see the franchise on the WiiU in the future.
Def Jam Vendetta
The first two installments of the Def Jam fighting game franchise were really solid. Def Jam Vendetta and Def Jam: Fight For NY was different from most fighters and featured a massive selection of hip hop artists. Unfortunately everything that made those two games so great was completely taken away when Def Jam Icon was released. If the format from the first two games was returned we’d welcome a fourth Def Jam game with open arms.
