IGN is running a series this week on the top 25 video game franchises (http://wii.ign.com/articles/749/749068p1.html). Since we won't get to the final five until Friday, I was wondering which series you think deserve the top spots. Understand, in this case, the criteria go beyond your own enjoyment (I've never actually played some of my picks). The IGN criteria are given as follows: "(T)he overall importance of the franchise, the strength of its library of titles and the excitement for future games in the series." So, with those parameters established, go to your corners and come out swinging!
