As franchises fall from prominence in the gaming zeitgeist, there sometimes is a core fanbase that remains to embrace the later, less popular entries of a languishing series. Somebody keeps buying Telltale games, for instance, even though most people got off the hype train after Walking Dead Season 1. Why can’t that somebody be on this very forum?
For me, it has to be Halo. The series is but a shadow of what it was at Halo 3’s peak, but I still regularly play rounds of Halo MCC and Halo 5. There’s something about the way those games control that still speaks to me after all these years, so I’ll be first in line to Game Pass Halo 6 when it comes out.
So I ask you, what franchises that have fallen on harder times do you still keep up with?
