The fickle nature of the games industry means that sadly, there’s a long, long list of video games and franchises that don’t enjoy nearly as much success as they should. And of course, with game developers and publishers wanting to focus on the properties that are likelier to yield better profits, those underappreciated franchises end up getting left behind and forgotten. Here, we’ll be taking a look at few such franchises- of course, given just how many similar examples there are out there, there will be plenty that we won’t mention here, so if you spot an omission, let us know about it in your comments. 

STAR FOX

Star Fox was once one of Nintendo’s most promising franchises- though certainly not on the same level as something like Zelda or Mario, it was consistently received well by critics and audiences, and definitely sold well enough to warrant several sequels and new instalments. As time went on though, it sort of faded into the background. We did get Star Fox Zero for the Wii U in 2016, but that game was a huge disappointment, to say the very least. As such, we’re now at a point where the future looks pretty dim for this beloved series.
