Poll: If Sony could bring one SERIES to Gaikai, what would you like it to be? (170 votes)

Final Fantasy 29%
Uncharted 13%
Gran Turismo 2%
Ratchet and Clank 6%
God of War 1%
Sly Cooper 1%
Crash Bandicoot 7%
Jak and Daxter 4%
Ridge Racer 2%
The Elder Scrolls 6%
Thief 1%
Ultima 3%
Fallout 5%
Prince of Persia 2%
Other 16%

This is completely a fantasy situation, but if Sony were able to release an entire series(all games from inception to ps3 generation) to the Gaikai service what would you want to see most? I'll admit I'm giving some precedence to Sony backed franchises since they seem like they would be most likely, but if you choose other let us know! (I'm also omitting franchises with only two games, and adding a few odd third party choices I think would be neat)

For transparency, and maybe to expose any bias in the order of the options, I chose Final Fantasy for the sheer number of hours of play that would be available.

I loved Sly Cooper and I almost voted for it but they are games that should be played on their consoles to enjoy them at their fullest. That's my opinion though. I really loved Uncharted and voted for that series. I loved every game they came up with. I wish they announced a fourth one at E3

Fallout, good longevity plus the games are already so buggy on PS3 you'd never know if it's the game fucking up or the Gaikai stream.

Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood. A complete collection of every episode doesn't exist, as far as I can tell. I want to start the morning knowing that I'm special :-(

Pretty much any PS3 exclusive. Still really bummed the next generation isn't backwards compatible. Should of been a major priority considering how much digital downloads I have on XBLA.

This is the ONLY answer

Also make IV cost $100 because anyone who actually wants to play that game deserves to be fucking fleeced.

I would want Uncharted but thats obvious its going to be there. I would bet any major first party game will be available on streaming. All the Uncharteds and Last of Us will obviously be there and God of War, Resistance , etc.

I'm really curious to see just how much will be compatible, this is basically the same situation as Microsoft's emulation on 360. It was a limited list that eventually they stopped supporting. I don't want them to do that. I want this service to eventually allow me to retire my PS3. Its earned a rest. Its still chugging and outlived two of my 360s.

Kingdom Hearts. I'm fascinated by the concept of those games, but I've never had a system I could play them on and I'm not going to go buy a PS3 or a PS2 just to play them when the PS4's right around the corner. Since KH3 is in the pipeline, I wouldn't be surprised if that HD 1.5 rerelease ends up on Gaikai when it launches.

Dude...what?

I agree with myself the merits of bringing the Cho Aniki franchise to Playstation owners everywhere. I thought this was obvious.

I will half-ass defend IV until my very next breath! At least it's better than Tierkreis.

@oldenglishc: I will half-assedly defend IV with you! Together we almost have a whole person who will sincerely defend that game.

Suikoden would be my first choice. I could go for a good chunk of the Tales games too.

Our voices will not be silenced until the world accepts how truly average this game is.

well I have a real soft spot for Ratchet and Clank and would really enjoy playing those games again for the first time in a while but I have to admit despite not being the biggest fan of the series the sheer proposition of having all those FF games (so godamn many) on gaiki right their in front of me anytime i want is kinda appealing. Thats straight up just a lotta stuff

Since this is a fantasy situation, let's go crazy. How much of a "fuck you" to Nintendo would it be if Sony just announced one day that it was going to offer streaming access to Mother, EarthBound, and the never (officially) released outside Japan entry- Mother 3?

It would be nice if whoever owns the rights to Spyro revive him. I would play all of his games since I believe that was one of the first ever games I owned when I first started gaming.

@professork: That game shipped with some serious bugs. There's probably some kind of PSN quality control that it couldn't get past.

I'll go with the Final Fantasy series. That's a lot of quality games right there.

I think any series that spans PS1 to (potentially) PS4 would be a good showcase of Gaikai. Final Fantasy comes to mind, but I actually think the King's Field games (and Demon+Dark Souls) would be cool. Not many people have played the King's Field games.

Gears of War.

Fill a warehouse with 360s and stream Xbox360 exclusives over Gaikai. PS4, now with Xbox360 backward compatibility.
