Hey guys. Over the next couple weekends, I’m going to be breaking down several different popular game franchises to find out what it is that draws us to these certain titles, what makes these titles become stale, what the developer changes that makes us despise them, and things of that nature. This new segment will be named, State of the Franchise.
At this very moment there is a handful of franchises that I’m going to be working on, but I am always open to suggestions from you guys. The goal of these articles will be to find out why certain changes are met with such hostility, while others bring almost universal praise — and why certain franchises appear to be either washing out — or finally making a resurgence.
It should be fun, and I hope you guys will enjoy delving deeper into these game franchises (or even genres in general) with me!
