In today's morbid edition of Speak Up on Kotaku, commenter Paradox Me wonders why people call for the death of popular franchises just because they don't like them. Good question!
What is it about folks that call for the death of franchises they dislike rather than simply ignoring them?
GameTrailers did a video of the top ten franchises that need to die and all the usual suspects made the list (Call of Duty, Madden, Halo, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, etc.) and it just boggles my mind.
There are a lot of things that I don't like or feel have run their course, but how selfish of me would it be to wish them out of existence, preventing fans from enjoying them? All of the franchises listed are still selling hundreds of thousands to millions of copies of each new release, so surely people enjoy playing 'em.
I don't know, just one of my gaming-related pet peeves I suppose.
