You can bring one dead franchise of your choosing back to life, but at the cost of killing another one.

This is a tough question, as there are probably a dozen series that I'd love to see revived and just as many that I'd be fine with killing off.

Revive: Portal
(Also considered: Half-Life, F-Zero, Silent Hill, Thief, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell, Perfect Dark)

Kill: Fire Emblem
(Also considered: Assassin's Creed, Destiny, Call of Duty, Dota, Pokemon, Halo, Forza)

Revive: Sleeping Dogs
Kill: Someone said Red Dead earlier so I'll just copy that. Not like I really despise the series though.

Revive Megaman Legends, absolutely kill Fortnite. Easiest decision of my life.

Just in case adding bodies to the pile also gets me more revives, kill FIFA just to see what becomes of EA and revive F-Zero. Oh, and kill Call of Duty (hi ActiBlizz) and revive Shinobido, but with an actual budget.

Kill: Metal Gear — technically, it's still alive — hello and goodbye, Metal Gear Survive!



It would be mercy, really.

Revive: The Wolf Among Us S2

Revive = Silent Hill. The way Konami seems to have historically treated their traditional game dev staff seems pretty awful, so let's license it out or sell it to someone that really cares and/or has interesting ideas instead.

Kill = Anything and everything exploitatively micro-transaction or loot box heavy, especially with a large underage playerbase.

A more interesting dilemma is if there is a franchise so beloved to you that you'd let a random franchise be killed (perhaps another that you also love).

For me that's Ultima, provided it picks right back up at its peak (Age of Enlightenment, IV through VI) and continues on that quality and ambition.

Revive: Baten Kaitos or Skies of Arcadia

Kill: 2D Kirby (so they can reinvent the brand, theyve peaked with this style)

Revive: Interstate 76 (and vigilante 8 series). modern open world engines, physics, VR and such would make for a killer experience.

Kill: Postal. Because who honestly cares about that series anymore?
