Keep or Bin



  • Here's a game for y'all to play. The following is a list of game franchises you simply have to bin one and keep one-but which ones do you decide should remain and which would you throw away? Let's find out. The options are:

    GTA OR RED DEAD
    DARK SOULS OR THE LEGEND OF ZELDA
    RESIDENT EVIL OR SILENT HILL
    DONKEY KONG OR KIRBY
    UNCHARTED OR THE LAST OF US
    RATCHET & CLANK OR JAK & DAXTER
    SUPER MARIO OR HALO
    BORDERLANDS OR DESTINY
    THE ELDER SCROLLS OR FALLOUT
    FINAL FANTASY OR PERSONA



  • GTA
    THE LEGEND OF ZELDA
    SILENT HILL
    DONKEY KONG
    UNCHARTED
    JAK & DAXTER
    SUPER MARIO
    BORDERLANDS
    FALLOUT
    FINAL FANTASY

    For Silent Hill I'm kind of having to ignore the current quality of the series.



  • GTA
    The Legend of Zelda
    Resident Evil
    Kirby
    Uncharted
    R&C
    Super Mario
    Destiny
    The Elder Scrolls
    Persona



  • GTA OR RED DEAD
    DARK SOULS OR THE LEGEND OF ZELDA
    RESIDENT EVIL OR SILENT HILL
    DONKEY KONG OR KIRBY
    UNCHARTED OR THE LAST OF US
    RATCHET & CLANK OR JAK & DAXTER
    SUPER MARIO OR HALO
    BORDERLANDS OR DESTINY No opinion
    THE ELDER SCROLLS OR FALLOUT
    FINAL FANTASY OR PERSONA



  • GTA easy. There's just too much legacy and expectation there.
    The Legend of Zelda because Dark Souls has done its job but they've gotten stale at this point.
    Silent Hill because Resident Evil feels like it has done everything it could.
    Kirby. There's no replacement for Kirby. Will miss Donkey Kong though.
    Can I bin them both and have Donkey Kong back? No? I'll take post Nathan Drake Uncharted then.
    Ratchet & Clank. Easiest one on the list honestly.
    Super Mario. Halo is conceptually great but the people who made it great moved on, and it hasn't been the same.
    Destiny because they're the Halo people and stopping Borderlands is a pleasure.
    Fallout both because I prefer it and think it has a more unique setting in games and I also want to stop the Skyrim menace.
    Final Fantasy, because SMT will still go on even if Persona is finished. Also 5 would be a good swan song for Persona.



  • RED DEAD
    DARK SOULS
    SILENT HILL
    DONKEY KONG
    THE LAST OF US
    RATCHET & CLANK
    SUPER MARIO
    DESTINY
    FALLOUT
    FINAL FANTASY



  • I'd say:
    GTA
    THE LEGEND OF ZELDA
    RESIDENT EVIL
    DONKEY KONG
    UNCHARTED
    RATCHET & CLANK
    SUPER MARIO
    BORDERLANDS
    FALLOUT
    PERSONA



  • Was this supposed to be difficult? I have my answers on L-O-C-K

    KEEP GTA (EASY) BIN OR RED DEAD

    KEEP DARK SOULS (EASY) BIN OR THE LEGEND OF ZELDA

    KEEP RESIDENT EVIL (EASY) BIN OR SILENT HILL

    KEEP DONKEY KONG (EASY) BIN OR KIRBY

    KEEP UNCHARTED (EASY) BIN OR THE LAST OF US

    KEEP RATCHET & CLANK (EASY) BIN OR JAK & DAXTER

    KEEP SUPER MARIO (MEDIUM — Halo been trash lately) BIN OR HALO

    BIN BORDERLANDS KEEP DESTINY (Both suck imo)

    KEEP THE ELDER SCROLLS (EASY) BIN OR FALLOUT

    BIN FINAL FANTASY KEEP PERSONA (HARD — FF7 was fire, but Persona has been consistent)



  • @dipset No it's just a game that I thought we could play is all. I think we could do with making more games on the forum just like we see on the EZA podcast and Q&A. I'm not good at making games so seeing what you guys come up if you decide to make a game would be great.



  • I'm keeping

    GTA
    THE LEGEND OF ZELDA
    RESIDENT EVIL
    KIRBY
    UNCHARTED
    JAK & DAXTER
    SUPER MARIO
    BORDERLANDS
    FALLOUT
    FINAL FANTASY

    This was fun to think through. Naughty Dog's gems were the most difficult decision.

    Oh I know. I was being facetious because this really wasn't a kill your babies scenario for me.

    I'll add a few for people:

    KEEP OR BIN

    TONY HAWK OR SKATE

    DEAD RISING OR LEFT FOR DEAD

    GOD OF WAR OR DMC

    SPLINTER CELL OR HITMAN



  • @dipset You've just gone ahead and made some tough ones so kudos to you-as for my picks:

    SKATE (damn this was hard but then I thought it would be better to get rid of Tony Hawk when RIDE and SHRED are in the series)
    DEAD RISING
    GOD OF WAR
    HITMAN



  • @dipset said:

    kill your babies

    I see it as different than kill your babies, because you're not erasing them from existence. The old ones still exist. They're just not making new ones, which changes answers for some options.

    Tony Hawk, but only because I've never played Skate, so I don't know what I'm missing. Could be totally off.
    I love Left4Dead, but Dead Rising is one of those franchises that no matter how bad they get I always am craving more.
    This one is painful, but I think I'm going with God of War. Bayonetta exists to ease the loss of Devil May Cry at least.
    Keeping Hitman, because even if we kept Splinter Cell, they wouldn't make real new entries.



  • GTA OR RED DEAD
    DARK SOULS OR THE LEGEND OF ZELDA
    RESIDENT EVIL OR SILENT HILL
    DONKEY KONG OR KIRBY
    UNCHARTED OR THE LAST OF US
    RATCHET & CLANK OR JAK & DAXTER
    SUPER MARIO OR HALO
    BORDERLANDS OR DESTINY
    THE ELDER SCROLLS OR FALLOUT
    FINAL FANTASY OR PERSONA
    TONY HAWK OR SKATE
    DEAD RISING OR LEFT FOR DEAD
    GOD OF WAR OR DMC
    SPLINTER CELL OR HITMAN



  • @dipset those are good ones! I have to go with these:

    Skate
    Left 4 Dead
    God of War
    Splinter Cell



  • TONY HAWK OR SKATE No opinion

    DEAD RISING OR LEFT FOR DEAD Have never played Dead Rising

    GOD OF WAR OR DMC

    SPLINTER CELL OR HITMAN Have never play Hitman



  • -RED DEAD
    -THE LEGEND OF ZELDA
    -RESIDENT EVIL
    -KIRBY
    -don't care throw em both away
    -JAK & DAXTER
    -SUPER MARIO
    -BORDERLANDS
    -don't care throw em both away
    -FINAL FANTASY



  • @dipset
    -TONY HAWK
    -DEAD RISING
    -DMC
    -SPLINTER CELL



  • I'm keeping

    TONY HAWK
    DEAD RISING
    GOD OF WAR
    HITMAN

    The last one's the tricky one, because I think the OG Splinter Cell trilogy is pretty superb. (And Double Agent, too.) But Hitman just keeps on giving pure fun.



  • This one is more tough for me but I’ll go:

    SKATE (only because I think there is more untapped potential, TH has untapped potential too but Activision won’t find it)

    DEAD RISING

    GOD OF WAR (DMC is great, just not evolving as much)

    HITMAN (Hitman had its dark times but seems to be evolving. Splinter Cell, who knows).
