Discussionist: Reboot Revolution

Which franchise is next?

Tomb Raider, SSX, Twisted Metal, Splatterhouse, XCOM, and DmC Devil May Cry – all of these games share a common trait. They’re reboots.

With more publishers taking to revamping existing franchises nowadays, which out there do you feel are most deserving? The majority of reboots we’re seeing today are of contemporary IPs, rather than aged classics. Which older titles – the SNES era, for example – would you like to see re-envisioned in today’s high-definition standard? Realistically, which franchises do you believe are next in line?
