Best Game Series Expected to Come Back – Next we will provide reliable articles that we have summarized and made as light as possible, so that they can be read by all people, here are the best series games that are expected to come back.
Since the birth of the video game concept in the 1950s and consoles in the 1970s, the gaming world has seen millions of video game titles. From this figure, several titles have managed to settle into the present day to get remastered and spinoffs. Unfortunately, some do not last and are lost in time.
Like films that are timeless, popular games such as Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, and Pokemon continue to have sequels, remastered, and even rebooted. For example, Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5, and Final Fantasy VII which were remake in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
With the arrival of legacy games, past game fans would also like to see their favorite games remade with a next-gen look. Once lost, these are the old game titles that were lost and longed to come back again according to the IGN website.
1. Medal of Honor
First appeared in 1999 because it was inspired by the film “Saving Private Ryan” (1998), “Medal of Honor” is the title of a game directed by veteran Hollywood director Stephen Spielberg. As the author of the first three titles of Medal of Honor, Steven hopes that the World War II (WW2) themed Medal of Honor will be an educational and entertaining game.
However, when Medal of Honor tries to change its era to modern like its rivals, Battlefield and Call of Duty, Medal of Honor also loses its identity and player. The last Medal of Honor title in 2012, “Warfighter” became a disgrace to the Medal of Honor series because despite its excellent graphics, it couldn’t compete with the old Medal of Honor.
In December 2020 or 8 years since the Warfighter incident, Medal of Honor is finally back with “Above & Beyond” for PC. Based on Unreal Engine 4 and developed by Respawn Entertainment, Medal of Honor: Above & Beyond has finally “returned” to its old theme, namely WW2 and can be played with virtual reality (VR)!
2. Legacy of Cain
If you’ve never heard of this title, maybe you were just a kid back then. Developed by Crystal Dynamics, the studio behind the “Tomb Raider” reboot and the Marvel game “The Avengers”, “Legacy of Kain” (1996) is an action-adventure themed game that combines a gothic atmosphere.
Legacy of Kain tells the story of the adventures of an anti-vampire hero named Kain in the fictional land of Nosgoth. Then, in “Soul Reaver” (1999), a new character was introduced, namely Raziel. Legacy of Kain features action, puzzles, RPG elements and great voiceover shows! As of 2007, 3.5 million copies of the Legacy of Kain have been sold!
It was rumored that they would release a multiplayer game “Nosgoth” in 2013, Crystal Dynamics canceled it in 2016. Even so, not a few gamers hope that Legacy of Kain will be remastered. With an engine to make Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics will actually gain profits after the failure of The Avengers.
First Encounter Assault Recon (F.E.A.R.) is a first-person-shooter (FPS) based survival horror game developed by Monolith Productions in 2005. F.E.A.R. tells of the battle of the F.E.A.R unit against Alma Wade, a psychic girl who has powerful evil powers and tries to manipulate the world.
An intuitive artificial intelligence (AI) system makes F.E.A.R. gain a lot of praise from players and gaming experts. F.E.A.R produced only the trilogy:
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (2009)
F.E.A.R. 3 (2011)
Of the trilogy, only F.E.A.R. 3 which was not produced by Monolith Productions, but by Day 1 Studio. While the gameplay has garnered praise, Alma Wade’s story at F.E.A.R. 3 is not considered as good as it used to be.
Got back with F.E.A.R. Online in 2013, a game connected to F.E.A.R. 2: The Origin Project did not receive sufficient support until it was shut down just two years later. Is F.E.A.R. will come back with a new Alma Wade story in the 4th series? Hopefully!
4. Silent Hill
Who doesn’t know the J-Horror game “Silent Hill” by Keiichiro Toyama? Developed by Konami, Silent Hill’s first three titles (1999, 2001, and 2003) won praise for their graphics, as well as their gripping atmosphere and story. However, for some critics, since then, Silent Hill has lost its fangs.
With its 8th series, “Downpour”, Silent Hill has completely lost its image. Fortunately, that changed when big game producer Hideo Kojima stepped in to take on the Silent Hills project with Kojima Productions and collaborated with Guillermo del Toro and actor Norman Reedus. Especially with the creation of Fox Engine, fans thought Kojima Productions was serious about Silent Hills!
In 2014, P.T. (Playable Trailer) was released to show the progress of Kojima’s Silent Hills and fans were enthusiastic! Unfortunately, a thousand pity, Silent Hills was declared canceled in 2015 due to Kojima’s departure. In other words, P.T., even if it’s just a demo, will be the “Silent Hills” mini for now. Later? It depends on Konami.
Sold more than 155 units, the PlayStation 2 (PS2) holds the record as the best-selling console in gaming history. One of the games, “Onimusha” by Capcom, was also splashed fortunately. Starting with “Onimusha: Warlords” (2001), as of 2019, Onimusha has recorded sales of over 8 million copies!
Incorporating a bit of horror, Warlords has action-adventure elements that will form the basis for “Devil May Cry” (2001). Even though the Onimusha series continues to introduce new main characters, you must still be familiar with Hidemitsu Samanosuke, a samurai with demonic / Oni powers in the Warlords.
Appearing again in Demon Siege (2004), some consider the Onimusha 3rd series story to be a mess, even though it involves Samanosuke. Warlords is indeed a remake for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, XBOX One, and PC. However, Onimusha fans are still looking forward to the 4th Onimusha series on the next-gen console, especially seeing Capcom favoritism by releasing Devil May Cry 5 and Monster Hunter World in 2019.
