IGN Presents… Pitching the Best Video Game Reboot

Franchise reboots have to walk a fine line — they need to satisfy our nostalgia of a character, world, or entire game while also modernizing everything we remember to make it feel fresh and remain fun.

And with reboots and remakes being all the craze, IGN’s panel of experts (plus some friends) are going to pitch you their dream franchise reboots, whether it be for a long-forgotten series or a franchise that’s still ongoing but maybe lost its way.

Those watching along won’t only help us decide whose reboot sounds the coolest, but we may even have some of you pitch us your own, so come prepared with your mental design docs.
