While I was having a browse for some DS titles, it struck me that I could almost always rely on a pink ball of air filled cutesy goodness to give me a nice injection of cheerful gaming. Throughout the years, the franchise has rarely thrown out a stinker and continued to impress with it's trademark cutesy charm and new innovative ideas.
I am of course talking about Kirby! The critisisms are normally around the easy difficulty, but aside from Air Ride which I wasn't that keen on, I've pretty much enjoyed most/all of the outings on NES, Gameboy, GBA, SNES (yup, even dream course) Wii and DS.
Although I own it, I've never played the Crystal Shards. I've also never played Mass Attack.
So, what are your favourite franchises that have survived through the decades?
