The video game industry is full of franchises that have been abandoned. After all, there are thousands of games released every year and it takes a special kind of franchise to be able to weather the test of time while releasing new titles. Only a few examples exist that have continued to remain successful, such as Mario, Final Fantasy, and The Legend of Zelda. These series represent some of the best video game franchises and have managed to evolve with the industry and adapt to the tastes of modern players.
However, that isn’t to say that all dormant video game franchises are failures. In fact, there are multiple series that were put aside due to unfortunate circumstances, such as suboptimal market times for a specific genre or a studio's desire to go in a different direction for a while. Regardless, there are certain series that deserve a remake or release for the latest gaming platforms. Check out the games below and vote up the dead video game series you would resurrect for an epic comeback.
