After reading Eugene’s article regarding the resurrection of past Nintendo franchises, I started thinking to myself about other defunct franchises that might never again see the light of day, but really deserve a second chance. I am not talking about old Nintendo franchises, since Eugene has already brought that topic to light, but what about old Sega, Atari, etc…?
There are some great titles from that past that could be easily adopted by Nintendo, rebooted, and many of them deserve it. Below are some of the titles that I think are deserving of a little Nintendo love and affection.

Some people, like John Ivers of Indiana, have the guts and ingenuity to build a working rollercoaster in their back yard. For most folks, however, coaster construction is limited to virtual worlds, and Nintendo fans can soon join the fun if Atari and developer n-Space deliver on their recent announcement: Rollercoaster Tycoon is coming to 3DS.
Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 is one of my top 3 favorite games; its lifelike physics and charming sprite graphics took me on a mini-vacation every time I booted it up. And, unlike some players (who posted YouTube videos of their wildest crashes and intentionally drowned their customers), I took my role as park manager very seriously and considered the level “failed” if I had a single fatality on my watch. I even named all my guards, mechanics, entertainers and janitors. Yeah, I’m a geek.
How many of these classics and clunkers are you familiar with?

At the launch of N64, Nintendo dared us to “Change the System!” and abandon the load-time heavy Playstation. This came after a campaign urging players to stick with SNES because, “Who Needs a New System?”
