Favourite Capcom franchise?

Capcom is a classic video game company.

Its best days were mostly in the 80s/90s. A lot of classics came out at the time and they were the best days of Mega Man and Street Fighter.

So, what's your favourite Capcom franchise?

I'm undecided between Street Fighter and Mega Man. Ace Attorney is fun too and Final Fight was a pretty fun bat 'em up back in the day.

Bionic Commando had a ton of promise... but they didn't really do anything with it.

Capcom is a pretty terrible, short-sighted company.

That's what annoys me about them. They've made some great games, especially back in the 8bit and 16bit eras, yet seem to be ran by monkeys.

Wow, sometimes you forget how many classic franchises they've created and yet have either let die or ruined them forever. Looking at that list there are so many.

I voted Ace Attorney since it's a fun series, but Street Fighter or Mega Man would have likely been my answers had capcom not made me jaded the past decades. Street Fighter refuses to evolve and Mega Man hasn't been able to adapt to new generations. I still love SF & MM though.

A franchise I loved but now I care nothing about is Resident Evil, they just went too crazy with it over the last 15 years. A franchise i'd love to see come back is Dino Crisis, it had tons of potential but it's been dormant after the awful idea of DC3.

I'm not much of a fan of Capcom franchises myself, but I absolutely love Marvel vs Capcom games for the crossover element/game mechanics.

Favourite one is Clash of the Superheroes.

Mega Man is to Capcom what CastleVania is to Konami in the sense that both franchises have been milked to death by both companies. I don't even know how many MM and CV games there are out there, nor will I ever play those.

I've only played the classic Mega Man games, so I have no clue what MM games that came out after MM8 are like.

Street Fighter refuses to evolve in what sense, btw?

Another company that seems to let its franchises die is Sega. Virtua Fighter is pretty much dead as is Fighting Vipers. Not even sure if Daytona USA and Sega Rally still exist either.

Mega Man evolved as MM X in the SNES era, Legends in the PS1, Battle Network in the GBA era but after that Capcom didn't seem to know how to make new ways to play Mega Man and has struggled keeping the already on going series. Mega Man games are hit or miss, there are tons of games so quality is all over the place. I'm mostly a fan of the first few eras of games.

Street Fighter refuses to evolve since IV (and continues in V), it's just a rehash of II in terms of characters and it taking place before III since III changed the whole story up. The story is now a convoluted mess because of it, and we only get a few new characters per generation and a ton of returning ones. What I liked about Alpha and III is they introduced more new characters than old ones. but now it's all nostalgia pandering. I still like SF but I wish VI actually takes place after III and evolves the storyline/we get a mostly new cast.

SEGA is definitely another really bad offender of not using their franchises.

Resident Evil, particularly RE5, RE6, RE4 & RE3.

Then Ace Attorney.

And then Devil May Cry.
