Players Are Arguing About Which Game Franchise Needs To Return

Konami | Insomniac Games | Monolith Productions

With reports that Infinity Ward is once again planning another Call of Duty game for 2022, it's yet another year the long-running shooter is set to dominate our lives. However, for every CoDFIFA, and Battlefield there's a forgotten favourite that's left to gather dust.

While nothing lasts forever, there's often a feeling that some games have their franchises cut short before they get to truly flourish. Although this has led to them becoming cult classics, there's a big question about when/if they'll ever return. Sadly, most are resigned to the trash heap. 

Which Game Franchise Deserves To Return?

Asking what game franchise deserves a chance to return is a bit like asking what the best video game of all time is. There's sure to be a fierce debate, and it's never long until angry edgelords are sharpening their pitchforks and try to burn your nostalgic memories to the ground.

There is no right or wrong answer, but over on the Gaming Reddit, u/Davidthegone552 asked the immortal question. At the time of writing, Red Faction has the highest number of upvotes. In particular, it's 2009's Red Faction: Guerilla is getting a lot of love.

Elsewhere, there are all the usual suspects of Silent Hill and Insomniac's Resistance. We've been over the complicated issues Konami is having with Silent Hill, while Insomniac is far too busy with Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine to imagine it would return to blasting Chimera in an alternate 1950s Earth.

What Game Do We Secretly Want To Return?

There was also a tonne of us championing No One Lives Forever. After GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark made their mark on the spy genre, No One Lives Forever put a '60s twist on the genre. Here, you played suave spy Cate Archer.

Equipped with a hilarious arsenal of weapons like lipstick explosives, perfume bottle sleeping gas, and a hairclip lockpick, Archer shunned the sexism of the era in style. You had equally comedic gruff Scotsman Magnus Armstrong, who was a formidable foe. It was basically an Austin Powers video game.

2000's No One Lives Forever was a huge hit and was quickly followed by No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way in 2002, rounding off with the Contract J.A.C.K. spinoff in 2003. Unfortunately, rights issues and even Activision not having a proper claim on the IP means it's never been rereleased.

Whether it's any of the above, Command & ConquerTime SplittersMax Payne or something else entirely, the argument still rages on. No matter what you'd like to return, remember that the devs are likely out there and listening. If only that had helped poor Bully 2. Alas, we hardly knew ye.
