It was never a dull moment with Gex, as he was always spouting one-liners and dishing out the sarcasm. I always felt the character was potential mascot material, but he unfortunately disappeared into obscurity.
The Gex games were great. I'm kind of glad they stopped where they did, though. I wasn't as impressed with Gex 3 as the second game. This series could have suffered the same kind of fate as Crash or Spyro.
Here's a list of my candidates for revival:
-Oddworld (we were promised a quintology)
-Psychonauts (I don't think Schafer approves of sequels, anyway... or am I thinking of someone else?)
-Stretch Panic - This game was more of a novelty than anything, but a sequel, if executed right, could be amazing
-Donkey Kong Jungle Beat - I want a legitimate sequel for the Wii that also supports the bongos. I refuse to play with the nunchuck.
-Zanac (will never happen because Compile is long gone)
-Klonoa - We're getting a remake of the original, but I want a sequel. Preferably part of the main series, but even one on the DS in the style of the GBA games would be nice.
-Rollcage - Stage II was damn near perfect, they just need to give it a graphical overhaul, tweak a few things here and there, and you've got a great bargain-bin title for the Wii.
-Gradius - sure, they released a game on WiiWare (which, to be fair, is great), but I want Gradius VI, complete with controllable options.
-Tomba! (must stay 2(.5)D though)
-Jumping Flash (can't stress this one enough)
-Space Harrier (what ever happened to Planet Harrier?)
