I'm limiting this to one per company for myself at least:
Capcom: Dragon's Dogma
Sega: Jet Set Radio
Nintendo: Custom Robo
Raven: Jedi Knight
Ubisoft: Prince of Persia
@katpottz: I don't know that you could consider Vanquish a franchise when it only had one game released. That being said they did tease a possible sequel/rerelease yesterday. The same thing could be said about Dragon's Dogma.
For me personally there are a few:
Battlefield: Bad Company: Those games were fun and laid back in a way that proper Battlefield just isn't.
NFL 2K: They were putting out the better football game until EA essentially shut them down by locking up exclusive rights to the NFL.
BioWare/Black Isle D&D games: I really want to play a game that adapts the current 5E rules to a single player game, like the old games from these studios did with AD&D and 3E.
Splinter cell Blacklist came out four years ago and we haven't heard anything regarding a sequel. Think that just about qualifies it for this. I've liked/loved just about every game in that series :(
And it seemed like they were finally really nailing the balance between stealth and action in blacklist.
Oh, and of course Metroid. A really good Metroid game could maybe push me to get a switch
A couple of weeks ago I would say Darksiders but somehow a new one is getting made. Games I wish were still around include:
And yes @eder, somehow Grandia 3 still has some of the best combat mechanics of any game ever made yet a sequel doesn't exist.
THANK YOU! I tell ya that series doesn't get any love and when it does it's only the first one people mention.
And to those asking for Metroid cmon people we got Federation Force.............................................HAHAHAAH ok sorry too soon right?
Most of the games I miss:
Obvious ones for me would be Command & Conquer & Warcraft, preferably with campy/awesome/cheesy storylines and CGI/FMV cutscene shenanigans included.
Not exactly a franchise, but a big company like Lucasarts having continued to do adventure games after Grim Fandango and Monkey Island 4 would've been swell.
Star Control: I'm skeptical about Stardock's ability to capture the magic of the original series.
Portal: The best one two punch in recent memory, what happened?
KotOR: It's time for this or something Star Wars based with a compeling story.
Bioware: Make a good game geez, I don't even care what the franchise is.
@bisonhero: I bet you Starcraft 2 sales are better than the original at the same life span. The market is just so much bigger today that a sale of two million copies sold isn't considered a big deal by a company like Blizzard. But in the late 90's 2 million copies sold would be considered a raging success.
Wario, his platformers in particular. Although I'd take anything at this point.
Dragon Age because as far as I'm concerned, there may as well only be one game in the series. Paper Mario falls under this category as well.
I would say Dragon's Dogma, but acknowledging that the original game may have been a one-off at this point kinda depresses me, so I'm trying not to think about it.
I wouldn't mind a new Custom Robo either.
Title: (peak game(s) I'd like them to emulate)
Splinter Cell: (Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory)
Rainbow Six: (Rainbow Six 3)
Burnout: (Takedown and Revenge)
Crimson Skies (I don't get how/why this disappeared)
Red Faction: (1, 2, or Guerrilla)
PGR: (3 or 4)
Mercenaries: (original, obviously)
Gran Turismo: (3 or 4)
I was literally going to make a thread about how much potential the Sleeping Dogs series had. I will just say I think it was the only open world crime game that ever got close to really competing with GTA some people say Sleeping Dogs is better than GTA4 I kinda of agree and I love GTA4. I think if Square let United Front Games make a true sequel with a big budget we would be in for a major treat. To me losing Sleeping Dogs 2 is one of the worst things to ever happen in gaming.
I also forgot to add
Command and Conquer (bonus points for Generals)
I saw a few people say Vampire: The Masqurade and I agree but I have a small hope as recently the White Wolf IP was bought by Paradox. They've already announced a Werewolf: The Apocalypse game by Cyanide but my dream would by for Obsidian to get involved in the World of Darkness IP.
