Five Games That MUST Reappear on PS4 or Xbox One

The current generation of consoles has had some massive titles over the years. Which of them need to make an appearance on PS4 and Xbox One?

As the next generation of consoles creeps closer, it's time to look back at some games from the past and decide which ones absolutely must make a massive entrance on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Some of the games below are one-offs that blew us away, and others are long-running series that have been consistently great over the years. Regardless of how long they've been around the following titles are key to making the next generation one to remember.

The Last of Us

The Last of Us was a massive success for the PlayStation 3, and while we can only assume it will be brought to the next generation in some form, there hasn't been any official confirmation. The game looked beautiful on the PS3, and was able to squeeze every bit of graphical power the console had left. The game already looks beautiful, but bringing a sequel to this game to the PS4 could potentially be one of the best looking games on any console. 

Gran Turismo

Again, another game we can assume will make an appearance on PS4, Gran Turismo 6 is currently only confirmed for PlayStation 3. Rather than porting that game to the next generation, imagine how good GT7 could look. Gran Turismo games have long been known for their beautiful graphics (not to mention their incredible attention to detail). If GT7 made an appearance on the PlayStation 4 in three or four years, it could give Forza 5 a real run for its money. DriveClub, which was intended to be a PS4 launch title but was delayed, will likely be a beautiful and fun game; but long-time racing fans will be itching to see exactly how good GT can look on a new console.

Grand Theft Auto

Grand Theft Auto V is another game that has been rumored for a port to next generation consoles, and this would surely sell really well, but many gamers will be curious to see exactly how big, beautiful, and crazy GTA VI could be. GTA V is already a huge game with hours upon hours of content, but for my money, I can’t wait to see what the team at Rockstar can do with next generation consoles. How much bigger can the world be? How much better can the cities look? It's hard to say GTA V needs to improve upon anything, but it's hard to deny that the power of Rockstar combined with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 could produce epic results.

Fable 4

I know Microsoft is touting a new Fable game called Fable: Legends, but this is not the game long-time Fable fans were hoping to hear about. After Fable 3 failed to impress like the first couple games, fans are itching for a return to what made the first game so great: character development and having real consequences for any decisions you make. The long-rumored Fable MMO would even be a welcome addition, but more than anything, Xbox One needs to see a new Fable game that returns the series to its roots. Open up the world to more exploring, thanks to the power of Xbox One, and give players hundreds of hours of content to explore, similar to the open-ended world found in Elder Scrolls games.

Elder Scrolls VI

Speaking of Elder Scrolls, The Elder Scrolls VI absolutely needs to hurry up and land on next generation consoles. Sure, The Elder Scrolls Online is coming out next year and will  be great, but long-time Elder Scrolls fans are pretty particular when it comes to their single-player Elder Scrolls RPG, and there is a legion of fans that will be anxiously awaiting the next numbered game in the series.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was already one of the most beautiful games of the last generation, which has fans salivating at the possibilities for how the game could look in the next gen. With faster processors, more RAM, and better GPUs, the next Elder Scrolls game could be more open-ended, realistic, free, and beautiful games to ever be made.

Now It's Your Turn

So there you have it, five games that simply must make their way to next generation consoles in a big way. I'd say it is likely we will see all of these games in some form or another at some point on the new consoles, but we never know for sure.

Consoles have always had their flagship games that have defined the gemeration (Mario, Zelda, Banjo Kazooie, Halo, etc), so getting familiar games like these to the new generation as soon as possible will be important to helping the new consoles sell.
