Inspired by the reception of Resident Evil 6 (which is mixed, to say the least), I want to know your opinion on the status of your favorite series or franchises. I've made a handy scale for just this purpose. Bonus points for including what the status was at the start of this gen as well as its current status. Newborn- This franchise is fresh and new and with the right care holds a ton of potential in the future. Alive - This franchise is perhaps not at its peak, but it's not terrible either. Regardless it has hit its stride and shows no sign of stopping. Prime - This franchise has never been better than it is right now. Sick - This franchise is alive, but it's exhibiting some worrying symptoms... Old - This franchise has been around a long time, and even though you once loved it, it's starting to feel a bit stale. Dead - This franchise hasn't seen a new game in several years, and there's little to no hope of a new one coming out anytime soon. Zombie - This franchise marches onward, mindlessly and without direction in a corrupted form most unholy. Death would be preferable to this cruel fate. Resurrected - This franchise was once dead or maybe even zombified. However, it has since seen a glorious return and is better than ever! Feel free to make up your own if none of these fit.
