One of the best things about a video game franchise is that developers can keep it going for years and years. Just look at some of Nintendo's franchises and try to count the total number of Mario or Zelda games — you're going to need a pen and paper. Of course, not every video game franchise has the same kind of lasting power as Resident Evil or Call of Duty. Some franchises disappear for years but deserve a comeback.
Whether it's because the technology has advanced beyond the original scope of the game or the developers' attention has refocused elsewhere, there are plenty of video game franchises that have gone "dead," never to be seen again. Occasionally, gamers share their favorite "dead" video game franchises to Reddit, and these are the best examples posted on the site.
