In the not so honorable tradition of the old, ah, social game(?), which beloved game franchise would you be willing crystallize in its current form forever? Or revamp completely? Or remove from existence?
Here are my three favorite game franchises*: Final Fantasy, Elder Scrolls, and Demon’s/Dark Souls.
I would be happy to keep the Elder Scrolls in their current form. Bethesda has done a great job capturing the feel of the games in each generation. I’m in.
I would choose to revamp the Final Fantasy series. Which, arguably, is what Square has been doing for years, as each game is rather different than its predecessor. I love many of the more recent Final Fantasies, but I don’t think Square has ever been able to return to the heights of VI or VII. Maybe a revamp would.
Which means I would have to kill the Souls series, even if that means the games would never exist. Perhaps it means From just won’t release any new games, which… they already may be doing so. Either way, the Souls games are fantastic, but Final Fantasy and Elder Scrolls are more dear to me, so away it goes.
What would you do?
