GamerSushi Asks: Favorite Franchises of This Gen?

Retrogaming is a lifestyle for some us, which is why outlets like the Virtual Console, PSN and Steam come in so handy. But 20 or so years from now, when we are all plugged into our own personal holodecks (and after testing out the Megan Fox app), what games from our current generation are you going to want to download to your mindchip? There have been quite a few stellar entries, I think we can all agree.

Personally, Uncharted and Mass Effect get my votes as two of the finest franchises of all time, let alone this gen. And those only have 2 entries so far! Imagine when we are on Mass Effect 7: Shepard’s Pie Party and Uncharted 10: What’s Left to Chart? In case you want some other choices, GamesRadar compiled a Top 7 list of Best New Franchises of the Current Generation and there might be one or two on there that would surprise you. I think we are in a nice era of gaming and this list reflects that.

So, having seen my choices and the list, what franchises from this gen do you like the most? Which ones do you think have the most potential longevity? Are there any new franchises that you consider epic fails? Go!

  1. Uncharted is up there as well as the reinvigorated Red dead series which i’m very much enjoying killing zombies with the undead nightmare pack.The mario galaxy series (which if you want to get technical is still apart of the Mario series) is another one i would have on my list. Most potential longevity? Either Uncharted or Mass Effect, hell even Assassins Creed considering they can use any assassin of any period of time no matter how ridiculous it is.

  2. Mass Effect, hands down. For me it’s gaming’s Star Wars, however it is very unique in its own way. Once ME3 is done, I hope we see more games in the ME universe because it is so interesting and fleshed out that it would be a shame to toss it away. By far one of my favorite franchises ever.

  3. Forgot to mention another one of my faves, Gears of War. I’m a big fan of the franchise and I think Gears 3 will be even better.

  4. Well, if we could make the assumption that we’d be playing the games in virtual reality, I’d say Crysis. Not a great game overall, but it would be crazy fun to “be” in that suit.

    On the list, I’d say Assassin’s Creed I guess.

  5. Uncharted, Assassin’s Creed and Bioshock are my faves. I have yet to play Mass Effect though. Maybe when I get a laptop I’ll get one that can run it.

  6. I love the Assassin’s Creed universe and where the series could potentially go, but Mass Effect has to top the list for me. Like Nick said, I can’t see any other game topping what they’ve pulled off. Who knows how many stories they can continue to pull out of that universe, too?

  7. Grrr, I can’t choose! lol Of the ones on the list, I think I enjoyed Assassin’s Creed the most because it was such a fun adventure game and had a crazy awesome story.

    btw Mass Effect sux lolololololol troll faic
