God of War. I have all of them, but they never found their way into a console. I think I needed to play them in my 20s due to content? Maybe ill get around to them eventually.

I played resident evil 4 and 5. But I kinda group the tank control re games separately from the 3rd person games. I haven't played a tank control one ever and would like to binge all of them at some point.

...hmmm, Gradius, Dragon Quest, Dead Space, and Unchartered come to mind. All of them are on my to do list or somewhere in the backlog though :lol:

If you are curious about Dragon Quest the new one is fantastic. A little slow at first, but its less about 'making forward progress and numbers going up' and more about 'lets chill out with these anime weirdos!' You have to adjust your headspace.

Silent Hill and Metal Gear are the first two to leap to mind.
Persona might count, but I have played a SMT game (Nocturne).

Are you guys counting franchises you've never even touched, even briefly? Or just haven't played more than a few minutes/a few sessions of/never beaten a game in the series/etc?

...I went with franchises I've never touched, though I do own a few of them as I have more interest than time most days.

You're missing out on Gradius. The rest you can skip. There are so many modern franchises I've never touched that I'm not sure where to begin. Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, Modern Warfare (does that count as a separate series?), Mass Effect, FIFA, etc. The older stuff is harder, though. I have at least tried out most of the big name series from pre-2001.

I admit, I'm struggling to come up with something. Even series like Crash Bandicoot, Madden, Gran Turismo, or Tekken, I put in a few minutes at one point.

Banjo-Kazooie is a series I have never tried, so long as you don't count Diddy Kong Racing.

Oh, and speaking of racing, I have never played any Ridge Racer game.
