What is your favorite Capcom franchise?

Oh man, that's a great question. I love Mega Man, I love RE, I love Street Fighter, I love Bionic Commando... but I went with Ghouls 'n Ghosts, because I just love it SO much, and because nobody else is likely to pick it. The game has so much personality, a great art style, and a huge variety of environments. I also love the fast, precise gameplay and the satisfaction of beating a segment after trying for hours on end. I always found the games harder, yet more satisfying and addictive then Contra, another brutally difficult game. 

I've never played DMC for some reason, and I haven't played Monster Hunter, though I've always been interested in it as a loot fest. I enjoyed the original Dino Crisis, but the sequels were nothing worth anyone's time (Dinosaurs in space? ick).

Mega hard choice but I went with Resident Evil. Mainly because I love the characters in that series. All of them. Especially Wesker. Also Resident Evil 4 is one of my favourite games of all time.

A close second would have been Street Fighter.

Good poll.

I had to choose Mega Man overall, but RE is a close second for me. I'm surprised that SF still doesn't have one vote(even though there have only been 5 votes so far).

Wow, the lack of Street Fighter love is killing me in this thread.

God, I can't believe I have never played more then 5 minutes of a Resident Evil game, I guess i'm still scarred from Resi 1 when I was only 7.

I chose Resident Evil cause I played those ones the most, and really enjoyed them.  My fingers are crossed though for them to turn Zack and Wiki into a franchise (I know it won't happen though).

I really love Street Fighter and Ghouls and Goblins (and Ghosts and what have you), but I have to go with Resident Evil.  Mainly because of how much I adored RE4, and I'm way excited for RE5.

RE is starting to run away with it right now...I can't believe there's been one vote for Dino Crisis, but no votes for Bionic Commando (though I think it's a bit difficult to call it a franchise too).

Oh man! What a great poll. I... I can't do it. You can't make me do it! I refuse!

Tough question. I opted for Street Fighter, but it was made extremely tough given my love of Megaman, RE and DMC. And Vampire Chronicles!!. (other)

As much as I love Street Fighter....the answer is Megaman for me.

Bionic Commando, it's the one I've played the most of BC:R is my favourite XBLA game.

But really looking forward to RE:5 and SF:4 this year as well as BC

I had to cast it in for DMC. Megaman was the close runner-up, and SF was behind that.

Man, Capcom is one of the most kick ass game companies out there.

who the fuck voted for dino crisis over RE, Street Fighter and bionic commando?

#17 Posted by Voldy (100 posts) -

Gotta be Resident Evil then Devil May Cry for me.

#18 Posted by Linkyshinks (9880 posts) -

If they held this poll in Japan I think F would get top vote easily, followed by RE, SF and then Megaman.

Resident Evil, Mega Man, Devil May Cry... nope, choosing is impossible.

Oh yeah, two thumbs up for you man! 
When I was younger I played the crap out of Ghouls 'n Ghosts for Genesis... I finally beat it last year. What a great game. It beats the crap out of you but it's the only game I liked getting my ass kicked in. Now, I'm so good at it, I can pick up the controller any time and beat it within 30 minutes. I won't stop playing till I can beat it without dying, which will probably take me another 20 years...

So my vote goes to the greatest platformer ever made. Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Ghosts 'n Goblins).
