Psst, Insomniac...Resistance 4, Please

It's okay. We understand your temporary bout of insanity in siding with Microsoft for Sunset Overdrive. We loyal PlayStation fans forgive you.

And we're more than willing to welcome you back into the fold if you say you're making another Resistance. And it doesn't have to be exclusive to PlayStation 4 (even if some fans love the idea).

As far as I'm concerned, this franchise never got the appreciation it deserved. Oh, it did from critics but it didn't always explode on the sales charts, which was a shame. And these days, narrative-driven shooters feel like they're on life support, as multiplayer domination and the constant whining about short FPS campaigns have taken its toll. It's hard to find any FPS campaign that's longer than seven or eight hours; I well remember the days when 15-hour single-player shooter adventures were normal. I really miss story-driven shooters like the original Red Faction, Singularity and of course, the Resistance titles. So, it might be a tall order for Insomniac to bring us another Resistance, unless they could prove to the world that it would also offer awesome multiplayer.

For me, Resistance: Fall of Man remains one of my favorite games ever, and was almost worth the stupid $600 price tag of the PlayStation 3 on launch day. And I don't care what anyone says, Resistance 2 and Resistance 3 were absolutely stellar efforts. This is exactly the kind of shooter I can get behind, and I'd very much appreciate it if Insomniac and Sony would strike up another deal...c'mon, Resistance 4 for PS4; announce it at E3 2016!

I absolutely loved the Resistance series. Especially 2.

Storywise they went downhill after the first but everything else improved dramatically,I wouldn't mind a remaster collection.

The the way stories are told are different but I still think the 3rd one has the best.

I remember 3 had a stupid pointless ending but it was a great game overall,the weapons were some of the best in a fps.

It was a happy ending! We need more of those imo.

There's nothing quite like it when a story has you resigned to an unkind fate for the hero due to impossible circumstances and then finds a way to turn your assumption on its head. I suppose some just felt it was tacked on but my experience was that Joe (Who I hated to begin with) was a resistance member who did the impossible, he made it home.

We need more endings period! No games end anymore, they just set up the next possible chapter whether it's coming or not.

R3 kinda bombed so I doubt Sony would want another.

I mean who knows, why not a Resistance collection on the PS4 just to see how it would perform?
And if it does well, maybe Sony might consider R4.

Yeah that was incomprehensible given the reviews and the high quality of the game all around. It's will make getting a part 4 together tough.

I would really like it exclusive to PS4 because I believe Sony needs a flagship FPS and Killzone is a very dodgy series.

Resistance could be stepped up to legendary status if you got Insomniac and GG together with some of the Santa Monica writers.

Though I also understand why a non-1st-party team would need to make it for the little baby xbox too.

Way to difficult? I don't understand, i thought the gameplay and that was ok, the resistance series remains one of my favourite franchise's from last gen.

Hmmm...it's a good game of course but it really didn't sell that much. I think SONY is better off sticking w/ Guerilla Games' KILLZONE as far as shooters go.

...bring on the RPGs please!

Resistance was my favorite shooter. 2 was by far the best especially the addictive co-op. The skirmish battles were fun as well. I'd love to see a fourth. The story just needs to be far better than what 3 was. Graphically it was top notch.

Even Yahtzee complimented 3, that's gotta count for something. And I'm pretty sure it has to be exclusive, Sony's the publisher.

Of all the games they should remaster... Specially the first one, since it was made back when the hardware was still in its infancy.

Doesn't Sony own the Resistance franchise? So it would have to be Playstation only.

I would LOVE a Resistance 4. I really liked the first and third games, but two was good, too.

The local multiplayer on Fall of Man was one of the best gaming experiences from the PS3 era.
