Game franchises you miss

What are some game franchises that you miss? Either because they are discontinued/have not come out with a new game in quite a while...or because they've become so bad they are dead to you.

Crash Bandicoot--We all know how God-awful Crash of the Titans and Mind Over Mutant was, but I still miss the bandicoot and it is a shame his series seems to be dead, now. Activison totally had the chance to revive public interest in him had they allowed his inclusion in PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale. Especially since he was the number one most requested character which shows his fans still care about him. But then what did I expect from the same company who thinks Black Ops Declassified is worth $50.

Final Fight-- Even though the beat 'em up genre has long since declined from its peak I'm still up for Final Fight 4.

F-Zero-- Still waiting for F-Zero Wii U with full online. At this point, I'd even settle for a port of GX with online. And I can't rely on WipEout to fill the void anymore now that Studio Liverpool is defunct.

As soon as I clicked this I knew Crash Bandicoot would be listed. I don't miss the terrible games, I miss the ones Naughty Dog made. I also miss the decent Ratchet & Clank games. After 3 the whole game just feels different, and generally not good.

Megaman, not sure if this counts since the most recent game was released in 2010, but the way Capcom treats the franchise nowadays depresses me
Starfox, at this point I honestly don't care how it plays like, I just want to see my favorite Space animals again
Syphon Filter,
Spoiler
Especially with Logan's Shadow's ending

F-Zero, my favorite racing series, I don't know why it's taking Nintendo so long to release it
Viewtiful Joe, these were some of my fav. GC games, I'd love to see them continue with a 3rd game
Power Stone, awesome fighting series on the DC, even a downloadable rerelease will suffice for me
Medal of Honr, and I'm mean the WWII ones, not those two shameless CoD clones they released last time. Despite that, he fact that they shelved the series still saddens me

Crash Bandicoot. Hands down. It's the first game I really, really wish could be brought back.

Mega Man. It just... died after 10, and I'm still heartbroken that nothing has been said or done since then.

Banjo-Kazooie, and by that I mean the original style. (AKA - Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie) Those games were so. much. fun.

I'm also tempted to say Sypro the Dragon, and again, the original style. The last one I could tolerate was A Hero's Tail, but they just became worse and worse then on, IMO.

And last but not least, Sled Storm. I like a few racing games, and racing with a snowmobile was just awesome.
Ryan FTW!

Aww yeah! Let the reminiscing commence. :3
That's cool to hear another one who has played it and loves it. I haven't found too many who do.

It's not really a franchise, but I miss the game developer Cing, who made some really great point-and-clicks for the DS like Trace Memory, and even had a pretty enjoyable Pikmin clone called Little King's Story for the Wii.

My favorite game by them, however, was Hotel Dusk: Room 215, a point-and-click with a noir-style story and backdrop. It was insanely fun and the story is still really enjoyable and memorable.

The company went bankrupt in early 2010 after the release of Hotel Dusk's sequel, Last Window: The Secret of Cape West. Many say that the game's story mirrors Cing's financial woes as the game was released two months before the studio closed, though these rumors were proven false by the head of the defunct company.

Still, I really miss Cing. I wish Nintendo could've done more to help them out, but what's done is done.
