Ranking BIGGEST Game Frachises

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ranking BIGGEST Game Frachises

So lets rank all the games and gaming franchises in a Tier Ranking.

The rankings are based on various points like -

SALES

HISTORY(meaning how long a game franchise has existed)

MILKING

FAN FAVORITE

ICONIC

GRAPHICS

GAMEPLAY

GROUND-BREAKING INDUSTRY STANDARD

POP CULTURE

DESIGN

UNIQUENESS

COMEBACK(if a game franchises has gone down and then come back after a while)

LIKING

 

This is not a top 3 list but more like a top and bottom tier where '1' stands for top tier and '3' stands for bottom layer.You can name your Tier in any fashion,like 1,5,10 or A,B,C or otherwise.

 

So lets start,this is my ranking for games

 

10 - Mario,Zelda,Metal Gear,Grand Theft Auto,Burnout,Gran Turismo,Final Fantasy(damaged but still an iconic brand),Need For Speed - Hot Pursuit,Road Rash,Minecraft,Pokemon

9 - Halo(too much milking in the last few years),Battlefield,Uncharted,Resident Evil,Diablo,Starcraft,Fifa

8.5 - Gears Of War,God Of War,Crazy Taxi,Mass Effect,The Elder Scrolls,Fallout,Need For Speed,Call of Duty,Resistance,Red Dead Redemption,Donkey Kong,Syphon Filter

7.5 - Street Fighter,Tekken,Age of Empires,Killzone,Angry Birds,Plants vs Zombies,Cut the Rope,Formula 1,Counter-Strike,Star Wars Battlefront,Star Wars - Shadows of the Empire,Hitman,Wolf 3D,Max Payne,Civilization,Dead Space,Assassin's Creed,Left 4 Dead,Portal,Destiny,BioShock

5 - Watch Dogs,Forza

2.5 -yet to rate

1- yet to rate

 

 

You can also give reasons like i have given above about why a game is high or low.

whta does Tier S stand for?

also remember,this is not a favorites list.this is how you rate a franchise.You might be a Playstation fan but Halo is a big franchise and you have to rate what franchise is bigger than the others in quality,sales,liking,etc so you might put Halo in the top tier
