For every Mega Man, every Castlevania, every Final Fantasy, there are infinitely more classic games from your youth (or your parents' youth, as the case may depressingly be) that lack the kind of franchise longevity they deserve.
Some games deserve better. Whether they were good ideas gone bad or franchises long forgotten, there are countless games that need a remake, a sequel, a reimagining or a resequelmagining.
Yes, countless titles due for a comeback. So countless ... let's count some!
And let's start with the Nintendo Entertainment System (Miss Famicom, if you're nasty), not just because it's the system your Grammy Dany grew up on, but because it so thoroughly dominated the gaming market in the '80s and early '90s that there's a spoil of riches worth of forgotten games to march forward into the modern era.
This is my list. There are many more games with potential that I won't mention here. I'm doing that for you, friend. So you can say, "I can't believe you didn't mention Adventures of Tom Sawyer!" "No Legend of Kage, bruh?" I want you, dear reader, to comment with your own list, which I assume will definitely include both those excellent titles, especially Legend of Kage, which keeps getting re-released on every console for some reason.
Ready, player one?
