At least Rayman has been redeeming himself. Origins is an excellent game and I expect more from Legends. These are the games they should have made long ago.

Also, my input on the thread's matter - Silent Hill, because Konami. :P Tried playing Homecoming and I don't even want to look at this franchise again, unless it's the first three games.

Especially with such dark games as Colors and Generations.
Owait.

Well Sega got it right with colors and generations after about 10 years. I was talking about when they added shadow to the series and sonic unleashed.

That's the first time I've read/heard somebody say they hated RE4. I thought it was good.

The Warcraft series was ruined when it turned into the awful MMORPG that is World of Warcraft.

They did it simply because they didn't want Banjo Kazooie to be 'more of the same' but I'm positive it would have been more well received if they'd kept it that way, just added more features etc. Still enjoyed the game but thought it was a stake in the heart of a great series.

Awwww man, you already beat me to it. But yes, this. Plus, the fact that they just completely deconstructed everything that was fun about Banjo-Kazooie (In the beginning, for example). That was basically what went wrong with the Banjo-Kazooie Franchise.

Take everything you already make without guns and add guns to it.

Rare games, Shadow the Hedgehog, Jak and Daxter

Games that went through a drastic mood change

Jak and Daxter, a few Sonic Games, Conker (a rated E and a rated M game)

Games that become a powerful franchise, but runs on a story that stops dead

What will ever happen to Metroid without Metroids? Will there be a clone of Zebes?

Game who uses their characters like memes

I love rabbids, but they've been multiplying like rabbids.

Story based games that are losing their story touch

Final Fantasy are lacking recently

and 100% what ruins a game series is when the game is no longer about the game, but about the game formula!

Sonic wasn't ruined by fanboys, but Sega's constant attempts to appeal to the fanboys (See: Cream and that dreadful Shadow the Hedgehog shooter game)

Re4 Gets alot of shit from the Resident evil fans, not what there used to. I liked Re4 as well, and i like ORC.

Games like Resident Evil 4 and Final Fantasy 7 are unique in that, they are amazing games (I would say classics even) yet at the same time they single handedly ruined their series.

Because it was the creation of all these stupid new characters that was Sonic's downfall.

not really- the characters are stupid, yes, but nobody would give even half a shit if the games were still as good as back in the day. they're not nearly as good, which is the problem

however, sonic colours and generations were both apparently a step in the right direction, and i've played 4, and while it's not gonna set the world on fire, it is at least an attempt to get back to the old ways. in short, sega are saving their flagship franchise.

Other M I swear if future metroid games have the pisspoor level of story telling and character development as this one did I'm not touching another metroid game gameplay wise it was mediocre i had more fun with the 3rd prime game.

Tenchu ruined itself with a barrage of games ranging from repetitive mediocrity- pure garbage.

TLO Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon and Skylanders. So pretty much Activision killed spyro for me.

But for Jak and Daxter the addition of guns amongst other things made gameplay alot less repetitive.

The game formula doesn't bother me if the games are still fun to play.

Game developers trying to appeal to a "larger demographic" that completely changes up the gameplay but counts asa direct sequel rather than a spin-off.

Game developers handing their beloved franchise to someone else, most of the time less capable than themselves.

Perhaps because the general public thought that sonic games sucked in general and weren't worth buying.

Well when a series makes more games yet the original designers are not on thelater series, it just takes alot away from it.
