I agree, but only if they actually do something with the franchises instead of what they did with RARE. Sega is gold mine when it comes to viable franchises, they just need the talent to reboot these games. If I was a billionaire and wanted to bury Sony & Nintendo's consoles, I'd buy up Sega game rights.




From 1988 to I'd say 2000 was probably the best time period in videogame history.

If you was too young during that glorious moment in time, then you missed it.

It was more fun, more social, more surprises, more competitive. You was actually putting money on the line @ Arcades, so you were forced to be good at the game. None of that XboxLive/PSN racism trash talk because the possibility of an a.ss kicking was real.

The myth and discovery of Reptile in MK1 and Akuma in SSF2T cannot be duplicated ever again in videogames. Those were true videogame mysteries u couldn't just google the answer to back then.

PS2 is one of the greatest systems ever, but that system also marks when arcades died & when the gaming community changed for the better and for the worse.
!!!! all truth! I remember playing art of f!ghting at the arcade,spending like 4 dollars on the last f!ght and beating him to find out he's Ryo's father!!!

me and my cousins were in that bi*ch like

Samurai showdown 2!!! n*gga what?!? me and my bro used to go at it in that joint x men vs street f!ghter, Mortal kombat 2, KI 2, tekken 3!!!!! these lil n*ggas dont know sh*t about gaming I swear......

yeah it gone we and my bro was just talking about this not 30 minutes ago, we'll never get that back I'm glad I grew up in the 90's though I had some of my best times in the arcade.

Rare was fu*king BEAST their entire lifetime before Microsoft bought them out and fu*ked them up. And I was around and owned and played ALL of those games listed, so don't try and tell me otherwise.

That studio had incredible history dating back through the NES, then they started pumping out sh*t once Microsoft bought them out. I don't know if Microsoft is responsible for their slide in quality, all I know is that they were good, and now they haven't had a classic since Perfect Dark.

Dude just gets on my fu*king nerves he always trolling on anything that involves M$ the topic can havenothing to do with xbox and he'll find a way to fanboy some sh*t in their its so bad he doesn't even keep it in this section n*gga be in the cell phone section trolling every M$ thread thats posted sh*t is lame......

far as Rare you're right they never re-captured that brilliance they had with nintendo but I wouldn't say they went to sh*t until they became the kinect brigade and yeah I'd put that on M$ but not their entire fall tho

I just thought they never rally fit with M$ especially on the first xbox but they didn't make terrible games the first couple years of the purchase.....

I didn't hate.....

Grabbed by the ghoulies
Konker's quest reloaded
Kameo
Perfect dark zero

I think these were all pretty good games I rather enjoyed kameo and konker for xbox

yes its trolling because its just you taking a dig @ M$ as usual you're not even objective about the sh*t. you know what you be doing n*gga quit playing dumb

plus you dont know sh*t about rare pass what you can wiki, you're not old enough, half of those games he named you werent even old enough to understand what you were playing so how can you even speak on it?



basically rare being sh*t after going to M$ is and opinion what that would have to be formed from experience in order to compare so STFU

RARE ran themselves into the ground when they didn't re-up on Goldeneye because they wanted to do their own thing (Perfect Dark). That sole decision had them taking chances on a bunch of games. I did like Rare and I think Diddy Kong Racing was an amazing game.


Also I HIGHLY doubt a Japanese company would let an American company buy them. The Japanese would rather burn the sh*t to the ground.

I'm talking about n64 days, not when MS bought Rare.

Golden Eye would have been back then what COD is today. Oh well... Perfect Dark was a better game, but it wasn't James Bond so no one cared.

Honestly I don't know too much about Rare but I like the Donky Kong franchise, other that that their like to me since i was too young.

I do like Sega though and dreamcast was a beast, if microsoft fu*ked with them. Sega could still be relevant today. Unlike them stupid a.ss yucky sonic games they make.

they left to Free Radical. That's why TimeSplitters was so much like Goldeneye but on crack and sped up.
