There are many older video games that I'm still fond of. Some I'm lucky enough to still have, whether it be on disc or downloaded onto a console. But, why did those once great franchises disappear into oblivion? Some of them died a slow and painful death, others just vanished. Whatever the case might be, there are tons of older games that I would love to see rebooted.
Tomb Raider is actually getting a reboot that should be released for the holiday season. This one is sort of a prequel, with a younger Lara becoming shipwrecked on an island. What I've seen of it looks amazing. It's definitely something I'm going to check out later this year.
Earthworm Jim is a quirky game I played a lot on the SNES. I actually have the first one downloaded to my 3DS and it's just as weird and challenging as I remembered. But, there hasn't been a new Earthworm Jim game in years.
What ever happened to Star Wars Battlefront? I loved those game, especially the second one. Whether it's in development hell or just dead, the series needs another game.
Some game fail miserably at being rebooted, like Duke Nukem. However, I think many games deserve a second chance, not only for us gamers who fell in love with the titles when they were first released, but for younger gamers who might have never gotten the chance to play them at all.
