    What is your favourite game franchise?

    A franchise includes all games related to one universe.
    For example, we can consider that "Wario" games are part of the "Mario Bros." universe.

    I've quickly selected what I consider to be the 10 biggest video game franchises, but I must have missed some or maybe my judgement is wrong about some of them... anyway a choice had to be made. Polls have a limited number of choices and that is what the "other" is for [​IMG]
    The list has been drawn with the help of: Eife, t4ils, Scarunkk, Naouak, DS-Man, and myself. Thanks for their help.

    Very hard choice................

    Zelda =\

    To explain: Pokemon would have been my first choice, but there isn't much change between any of the games (New generic pokemon. Woo.)

    Metroid is probably my favorite. Those games just always make me feel so satisfied once I complete them.

    Heretic, Hexen (not so good), and Heretic II. How can you beat that, seriously?

    I chose other for Sonic the Hedgehog. I don't much enjoy the current versions (though Rush is a step in the right direction), but I grew up on - and played the hell out of - the genesis ones. The series holds quite a bit of nostalgia for me.

    Mario is an easy second. Each game in the series has captured my attention for many hours, and the spin-offs are quite good too.

    In addition to Sonic, I'm disappointed to not see Kirby on that list. Not exactly my favorite series (generally too easy) but he's got more games than a few of those franchises. And spin-offs to boot.

    Definitely FF just because they can re-use the same basic gameplay and still be able to make great games.

    Zelda, its only franchise I have played all (Nintendo ones anyway) the games in and always look forward to the new releases. Even if I don't like the game in the end.
    EDIT: By the end of this year I plan to own all the games on a legit medium. I am just missing LA DX, Oracle of Ages/Seasons, LttP (GBA) and Minish Cap.
