The world of video games provides us with endless choice of its creations so any taste can be satisfied. Some of the games make us want to return to them again and again and enjoy numerous sequels and prequels of the original plot. Video games franchises follow us for a long period of our life and the best ones become an integral part of it. Here ids the list of franchises which I like most. an integral part of it. Here ids the list of franchises which I like most. You can agree or disapprove of my choice, anyway, I will be glad to hear to your opinions and additions you want to make to this top.

  • Number one in my list is Resident Evil which was issued in 1996. About forty million copies were sold since this time. The game provides a good basis for creating numerous continuations – evil company, crowds of zombies and heroes with cute guns. Of course, it is not the first game of the survival horror genre, but it is definitely one of the best developed games in this field which has promoted the creation of plenty new games of this type.

2.Metal Gear Solid which was released in 1987 is also worth being included in this list. More than 26.5 million copies were sold all over the world. The issue of this video game has led to the appearing of a completely new genre – stealth. You play a legendary character of Solid Snake and should somehow cope with a superb version of weapon, Metal Gear in its different incarnations. The plot twists make you gasp with surprise, and the characters invokes the feelings of true love or hatred.

3.Of course, Final Fantasy could not be left outside my personal top. The first game was released in 1987 and since that time an impressive amount of 92 million copies was sold. This game has inspired the creation of the whole subculture around its plot and characters. Final Fantasy is the pioneer in many aspects of gaming industry, including introduction of new techniques like 3D rendering, new quality of graphics and soundtrack. Besides, the plots of sequels are often not related to each other so you can enter the universe of Final Fantasy through any version you choose.

4.Legend of Zelda with its 59 million copies sold is also one of the best franchises I have ever played. Link, the main character of the game who has to save Princess Zelda, is considered to be one of the best video game heroes ever. It offers you the highest degree of emotional involvement, as the story along with the characters is really touching. The plot and the quality of this action adventure franchise leave all other competitors far behind. This series is responsible also for release of probably the greatest video game, “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time”. Among the other parts of this franchise which I want to mention are “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” and “The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past”.
