The Best Video Game Franchises of All Time
If someone asked you what the greatest video game franchise of all time was, how would you answer? If you grew up in the 80's and 90's, classic franchises like Mario, Sonic, Final Fantasy, and The Legend of Zelda might appeal to you more. However today's gamers have insanely good franchises to sink their teeth into as well, including Grand Theft Auto, God of War, Halo, Deus Ex, and so much more. This list takes your opinion into account, rather than sales, popularity, and reviews, so vote for your favorite game franchises no matter how mainstream or highly-rated they are. All genres are included here, whether it's a RPG, platformer, first person shooter or an adventure game.
You can add any franchise that's missing to this list of the greatest game series of all time, as long as there have been 3 or more games in the franchise so far. That means we're not including games like Minecraft, League of Legends, and DotA.
