    True there are a few series that pop out in your head as they can live forever, as for ever getting to the same level thats a whole different story. The only one that pops into my head as always sticking around besides Nintendo titles is Final Fantasy. I think it just has such a large and long time fan following that it will live forever. Its gotta be a pass it down father to son type game. "I personally never really got into it but I know some Die hard fans." With well over 20 games and spin offs its here to stay aswell. Its just something about these RPG games people can't get enough of. Same goes for pokemon/zelda.

    Beyond that Games like Halo,RE,COD,Tomb Raider,007 ect. ect. have to be careful of timing and can't over do it. "some have already shown signs of wear" Because unlike characters like Sonic,Mario,Kirby ect. they can't just get tossed into every "party" game, or re-invented in a whole new genre . They are made for one type of game and really only fit into that one mold.
    So They might continue to sell if paced well and spread out, but it will never get into the sturation that Mario,Sonic titles have done and will do because changing the genre for these games would be so difficult. And they don't seem to have the same addictive quality and dedicated fanbase as the big RPG games yet. They can quickly die off if overdone. Even if not overdone, so far the history of these type of games shows us they don't last forever no matter how well they are made.

    I would love to see some new inovation in gaming specially with things such as Xbox's arcade and Wii-ware it just screams please please make something new we are sick of games ending in 5,6,7... Sure Nintendo characters are getting old but to me atleast they are re-invented on some level so I atleast like it every time, maybe not love like the first Mario games but I always atleast like them.
    Just like was said with the Rolling Stones, of course they rock but there getting old. The real problem is why can't we seem to get anything else that rocks as well? We are due for some change thats for sure.

Now i am DEFINATELY not sayin i feel like this now, but honestly i think this was a great group of games they put out for the Wii, and is gonna be tough to top. So why not quit while there ahead and come up with new ideas. AGAIN i'll say I DONT FEEL LIKE THIS NOW! (before all the hate comments come) Im just wondering.

    Whats your take on this?
    No one will get tired of it, do you know why? because all of those games are good, why stop a good thing.

    Exactly. Which is why i myself can not wait for Wii-ware also. cuz they are so many people out there with so many ideas, new ideas that could just take gaming to the next level.

    Well Nintendo made it work SEGA kinda rolled with it "no pun intended" by copying it. "like so many other companys in the industry do"

    Sonic had great sucess while SEGA consoles lasted, but once they were outta the console race the "hardcore" systems didn't seem to be jumping at the bit for this type of character. If history tells us anything this was a very bad call. If I was Sony or MS I would have scooped up SEGA and all the popular 1st party that came with it. Lets face it thats the one thing the "hardcore" don't have is a long lasting classic 1st party. Most of there sales are dedicated to 3rd party pop games.

    Even being arch rivals for so many years after SEGA went software only Nintendo welcomed them with open arms and I'm sure this has made SEGA very happy. Although they might still be a bit behind Nintendo's sucess record they have helped them achieve a mirror image of the same concept with there own unique "universal character" that now speeds his way across every console with no mercy. He still seems to sell best with Nintendo fans though. But he had some great sucess on the PS2 probably because of the large population of "casual gamers" The same gamers that make or break your game sucess wise!

    Have you played any Sonic Games recently?

    I honestly can't remember one that was either fun or had good reviews in the last 5 years.

    Sonic is cool. His games suck now, but he is cool.

    I miss Crash Bandicoot. Why did Naughty Dog have to drop him?
