GamePro Selects Best Video Game Franchises
Posted on July 17, 2006GamePro has made a list of what they think are the ten best video game franchises. Their list includes game series like Castlevania, Metal Gear, Resident Evil and Metroid. The top there were Finaly Fantasy, Mario and The Legend of Zelda. Bomberman is on the list at #10 and mabye there was another franchise out there that was better? Here's why they liked Bomberman so much.
Fair enough but we still aren't sure why Bomberman is on the list and its unfortunate that Doom only ranked as high as six but it is an interesting feature nonetheless. None of the sports game franchises and arcade classics were included by GamePro.Later versions of Bomberman added new twists to the battle arenas-conveyor belts, pipes, warp zones, mine carts, catapults, kangaroos-and the power-ups also became more plentiful and diverse. The Bomberman character itself is also enduring: with his antenna-capped white helmet, pastel blue vest, black belt, and red hands and feet, he's one of the most recognized video game creations ever. The game's simplistic musical chimes also had a nasty habit of playing through one's head for days.
