Tokyo Game Show is over and out of the slew of exciting news that emerged from last week, none seemed to impact the internet quite the way the unveiling of the brand new Final Fantasy XV trailer did. What they showed revealed a lot of deviation from the Final Fantasy style that long time fans have grown accustomed to, thus causing many people to pose the question, “Why can’t it be like it was in the old days?”
After the wave of criticism that FFXV faced for not being the Final Fantasy VII reboot that everyone’s been begging for came in and leveled various forums across the web, it got a lot of people discussing older titles that they’d love to see brought back. Special guest Kim Horcher (host of Nerd Alert) and myself went through a couple of old school franchises that we’d love to see revived on today’s episode of Nerdist: Play.
I asked you all on twitter which video game franchise you’d like to see rebooted the most, and here are several of the great answers that didn’t make it into today’s episode:
@Malik4Play Oh I got a better one. Freaking RoadRash yo!

@Malik4Play I think its time to reboot the Silent Hill franchise. Others could be Earthworm Jim, Streets of Rage, and Double Dragon.

@Malik4Play The Legend Of Zelda. I want to see something totally different for the series. Maybe some voice acting.
