Saints Row belongs to our Generation! [Rant]

Saints Row Belongs to us!


As we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of gaming and entertainment, it’s essential to take a moment to reflect on what truly matters—our shared love for the Saints Row franchise. I feel compelled to share a sentiment that I believe many of us hold dear: Saints Row is better left solely for our generation.

Embracing Our Roots:

For those of us who were there from the beginning, Saints Row holds a special place in our hearts. It’s a testament to our youth, our shared experiences, and the joy we found in wreaking havoc in the streets of Stilwater. And while the allure of reaching new audiences may be tempting, there’s something undeniably comforting about keeping Saints Row firmly rooted in the era that birthed it.

A Tribute to Nostalgia:

Think about it—how many of our favorite franchises from yesteryear have managed to stand the test of time without constantly reinventing themselves? Star Trek, Star Wars, even retro gaming systems like the SNES and Sega Genesis—all continue to thrive by staying true to their original fan base. And in much the same way, Saints Row can find strength in embracing its nostalgic appeal.

Catering to Our Generation:

It’s okay to cater to our generation—to the fans who were there from the start, who grew up alongside the franchise, and who continue to hold it dear to this day. We don’t need to prove ourselves to newer generations or constantly chase trends to remain relevant. Saints Row has already left an indelible mark on gaming history, and it’s perfectly fine for it to stay just as it is—for us.


So, let us revel in our shared nostalgia for Saints Row, celebrating the memories we’ve made and the adventures we’ve embarked upon. Let us cherish the franchise as it is, honoring its legacy and the generation that made it what it is today. For as long as we’re still here, still interested, Saints Row will continue to live on in our hearts and minds.

Here’s to the original fans, the keepers of the Saints Row flame. Long may it burn.
