What are some reboots you guys felt were done right?

They made it because Eidos was failing. So when they merged, they started making their older titles. It is a reboot in that way, not story-wise.

The term reboot, in media dealing with serial fiction, means to discard much or even all previous continuity in the series and start anew with fresh ideas.

start anew

ANEW

RE4 isn't a reboot. It still takes place in the same universe and timeline as RE1-3.

Ninja Gaiden is an example of a good reboot, but the original NG games were out in the 8-bit era, so I don't put it in the same vein as DmC when it comes to that.

How is MK9 a reboot of gameplay? It's the traditional fighter...
