Why Some Video Games Should Let Go of Their Past

By   /   Aug 8, 2016

We all have favorite video games franchises that we so dearly love the way they are and yet we also crave for new experiences and innovations.

Video Games that Need to Let Go of Their Past

Let us take the example of Halo! The franchise is adored by millions of fans around the globe. However, the experiences of young audience – who probably got introduced to the franchise from Halo 4 – and the ones who played the original Halo when it released can never be the same.

Also Read: SegmentNext is giving away three copies of procedurally-generated space-exploration game No Man’s Sky. In order to enter the giveaway, all you need to do is to subscribe to our SegmentNext YouTube Channel and comment on the article linked earlier. We will announce three randomly selected winners shortly who will get the game on the platform on their choice i.e. PC or Playstation 4.

Torn between finding a perfect balance between providing fans with something fresh and still sticking to the roots of the franchise, the developers find it nigh impossible.

One of the few game that I still adore for finding this balance is FromSoftware’s Dark Souls franchise. From the original Dark Souls to recently released Dark Souls III to Bloodborne, the franchise never fails to amaze – that and The Witcher franchise.

Check out the video attached above to see our very own James Kuckaan share his thoughts on video games that must let go of their past.
