First, it was Transformers and GI Joe, then they massacred the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and now Hollywood has set their sights on the next kids' show in line, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.

Reader Discussion – What's Your Favorite Gaming Collectible?

Collectibles can make an otherwise barren world feel alive. They can work as secrets that give games that lived-in feeling, or as ways to incrementally upgrade your character.

I'm playing a lot of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and most of its collectibles are wonderful. The shrines (and there are a lot of shrines) offe......
