Who is worse at relying on their biggest franchise? MS or Ninty?

Sony.

They realized whay a hit TLOU was and want people to buy it again. At least Halo 4 came out more than a year ago.

when did people start using "ninty"?


Typing letters is hard work. They need to abbreviate as much as possible so their fingers don't fall off.

Anyway, Nintendo by far. Microsoft is more prone to paying third-parties not to publish on their competitors than relying solely on first-party material. Nintendo can't pay third-parties enough to get exclusive games, so they pretty much only get by on Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon.

Honestly, have people just never heard of "collector's editions" or "complete editions"? Re-releasing a game with all of its add-ons included has been a common practice since the PS2, at least.

I never understood why this is a problem in any way.

Final Fantasy XV, Halo 5, Uncharted 4, Mario Kart 8...

What does it matter. If there is an audience that wants to support these franchises then more power to them.



Opportunity cost, personally.

OK, then why is doing the same thing with 4 games on the same disc a problem?

Halo is worse because most of the games follow the same format. Mario is in racing games, platformers, party games, rpgs, sports games, etc. Most mario games are generally very well received as well.


Show me the Halo game that wasn't well received.



Well we take it easy then
Halo Wars.
