Rebooting classic gaming franchises is a risky endeavor, and it doesn't always work out the way the fans would hope. When EA announced that they were rebooting Medal of Honor a few years back, fans were pretty excited to see the direction that the franchise would go.
What they got, however, was a game that did its level best to merge the most interesting elements of Battlefield and Call of Duty but failed on pretty much all fronts. When that failure was repeated in Medal of Honor: Warfighter, EA themselves admitted that the reboot had failed and put the franchise back on the shelf.
Regardless of past failures, the past contains a veritable treasure trove of amazing opportunities that developers and publishers can cash in on if they are smart and do them the right way. This holds true across the board, but specifically in first-person shooters as well. Medal of Honor was a disaster, just about anyone can admit that, but that doesn't mean that bringing back some of the more popular first-person franchises is always a bad move.
Without further ado, let's take a look at some of the first-person franchises that we would love to see make a comeback! Use the navigation below to peruse the list and be sure to leave us a comment sharing your most-desired FPS comebacks below.
