I'll give you my thoughts on Crimson Skies.The original Crimson Skies which was released in 2000 sucked. The game had bad controls, ugly graphics even for its time, the gameplay was dull, and well...... It just plain sucked. It was PC exclusive.Then Crimson Skies : High Road to Revenge, the sequel to the first one, was released in 2003. Many people consider it to be one of the best XBL games. Sure, the single-player game may be short and it can get abit repetitive, but the graphics are gorgeous, the environments are huge, the multiplayer is great, and the game has a unique storyline and setting. But like BG&E, even though it got great reviews, the game didnt sell well. I wouldnt call Crimson Skies a financial flop- Not at all. But the game was below expectations on the sales. So far the developers of Crimson Skies have given no word on a sequel, but there have been rumors of the Crimson Sky developers planning a sequel.I think it would be a great franchise. Just imagine if the franchise lasted so long that you'd get to see what the Crimson Skies universe would look like in modern times. :D

Yeah I would like to see Crimson Skies become a franchise. WHat made me get High Road to revenge was me remembering playing the PC version and kinda liking it (forgive me but I am a flight sim/airplane junkie, I only played the demo version of it).

Riddick was a wondeful game and hope it is a Franchise. Actually playing Riddick kinda ruined Doom 3 for me because the visuals were so good in Riddick. Not to mention the story/acting/level design/ first person fighting gameplay. It was just a great all around game. The only problem with a sequel is where is it gonna take place? I am guessing Pitch Black happened not long after this. It would have to happen in the time between Pitch Black and COR since there seems to be like a 5 year gap there. I know there was that cartoon I haven't seen, but there is a lot of space there.The fact XPlay gave such a great title like Riddick only a 4 out of 5 really shocked me.
