So lets rank all the games and gaming franchises in a Tier Ranking.
The rankings are based on various points like -
HISTORY(meaning how long a game franchise has existed)
GROUND-BREAKING INDUSTRY STANDARD
COMEBACK(if a game franchises has gone down and then come back after a while)
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
