Kantor, nothing freaking fits your criteria.

* is a famous series
* is on a decline
* has an earlier entry that will be on many member's lists
* has only one main competitor which is more popular and more realistic.

Only sports or car games come close but not them either. I'd say Need for Speed but that hasn't got a more popular and realistic competitor.

I'd say PES but someone mentioned it already.

It is clearly Tony Hawk. Skate is the one competitor.

Forza or Gran Turismo?



 

Bet with gooch_destroyer, he wins if FFX and FFX-2 will be at $40 each for the vita. I win if it dont

No. Neither are on a decline and both have more than one competitor (NFS)

That is quit easy actually, I've been planning on picking up this game for some time now. The demo was hell of a lot of fun.


I didn't even particularly love the first two games (Pacific Rift was okay), but Apocalypse was just something else.  Crazy fun driving through a city as it crumbles.

I'll have to work on a more obscure clue for my next one :)

No, you said it already but Kantor was silent like a mouse.

Plus I wouldn't think Kantor would claim that Tony Hawk is "a very famous series, which was once great and which has now gone to crap."
&
"one particular (earlier) entry in the series will feature heavily in these lists".

What's the deal with the remake rule? It uses Zelda OoT as an example but that more like an enhanced port and mostly just looked better. Are full fledged remakes allowed as multiple entries?


I agree, especially while talking about games like REmake and FFIV on DS



Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here?

Uhm, Kantor hasn't responded since I guessed Tony Hawk. Tony Hawk is a very famous series, was once great and is now crap. Skate is the only competitor, and many people thought it was better since the movements and everything are more involved (realistic). The only thing that does not quite fit is that last sentence about an entry featuring heavily here. hmm

@Kantor: Uhm...Warcraft? I have no idea

Well, Warcraft as an RTS franchise doesn't exist anymore.

But no, not Warcraft. Keep guessing if you like, but all will be revealed tomorrow and you'll either kick yourselves or say "hmm, I never would have thought of that".

Tony Hawk!

Ding ding ding!

Congratulations

This particular Tony Hawk game is only liked by hipsters

Tony Hawk is a very famous series. The Pro Skater games were considered among the greatest games ever made. And now it's peripheral-driven garbage.

And I figured Pro Skater 2 would feature very heavily on these lists given the number of Sony fans on this site.
