Not every IP gets a long, guaranteed life filled with fame, fortune, and spin-offs. There are far more Gex-es out there than Marios. But, that doesn’t mean the series that died off are bad or less deserving. Some of them are both fan favorites and critically acclaimed. They just, well, didn’t make enough money or ended up lost to time.
But, given we’re now in the area of reboots, remasters and spiritual successors, now seems like the perfect time to talk about series that should be brought back.
