Well, Crash Bandicoot looks like it's going down the shitter sorry to say. I'm a huge fan of Crash Bandicoot and his games are really becoming more repetitive. Some great ideas here and there but they should really just let him go.

In league with Crash is Spyro the Dragon, ever since the original developers left to do Ratchet & Clank the games just look horrid.

Spyro was a fun PS1 Character. But now he needs to die, if I see him on 360 then I know it's overkill.

In the end, all game series will end; either they will be run out and become utter rehashes of the old maps, characters, and plotlines, or their creators will die and no other man will be capable of carrying on the series, or they will simply fade into nothing. Nothing lasts forever: not Mario, not Halo, not Doom, not Zelda, not Call of Duty. Nothing. In the end, all will fail.

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory online. I remember when there were about 40 people on Coop or Versus. I just checked the world servers about 10 minutes ago, one server. And 1 person is on Coop.

I'm hoping a game with a huge fanbase fails. Like Halo.

But Unreal Tournament has failed lately. Shame I really like UT.

Well, Sonic is now the classic crash-and-burn franchise, due to, in typical Sonic fashion, the incredible speed at which it went from awesome to terrible.

Star Fox, Tomb Raider, and the PS1-era platformers are starting to show their age, though...

I like to think they worked because they had similar technology and weapons. How the hell is force push and lightsabers going to fit in with swords and spears?

Mario and Halo won't fail as long as they don't fail. There is a difference between failing and retiring something. When a company moves onto new projects, that means they don't see anything more they can do with that character.
