VOTE: Which game franchises need a reboot the most?

CoD, Sonic and Pokemon; is it time for a makeover?

Reboots have been one of the most popular themes of this generation, with Lara, Dante and even Bomberman reinventing themselves with varied degrees of success.

But some franchises are screaming out for a makeover more than others. We hear you in the comments; you're tired of Call of Duty, you think Sonic's in need of a redesign...

In this week's Vote we earmark the game franchises most in need of a reboot - or in some cases, a return to their roots. From our selection of candidates, voting 1 signifies no reboot needed at all and 10 indicates it should've been revamped years ago. Who knows - maybe some developers will even pay attention to your demand.

As always, if there are any games you'd like to see added to the candidates let us know in the comments below. We'll let you know how the results go in a follow-up article next week.
