They're gonna keep on using Mario and Sonic for quite a while.

Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon both failed horribly as soon as their original developers sold the rights to the series.

Majority of the Sonic the Hedgehog games have been terrible ever since the Dreamcast failed. Sonic Rush was excelent though, it proved that the series isn't dead yet. Sonic Unleashed also looks promising.

Mario Party has been awful ever since they moved it from the N64 to the Gamecube. Mario Party 8 could have been amazing, but they fucked it up horribly.

Its so sad to, Spyro and Crash was the shit on the PSone and instead of retiring them the developers sold the rights so some dumbass can make horrible games with them, they just couldnt imitate the feel of the original games ya know. My favorite childhood game characters, destroyed.

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.

I'm just guessing that the latest Spyro game you've played was "Enter the Dragonfly". If I'm right about that, you should try "A Hero's Tail", And believe me, its much better.

crash turned ghey ever since he switched places with spyro the dragon...

it's the truth

Those two games screwed everything up. If they had never switched, more people would be playing the newer games.

If the Super Mario series lived through 1993, Nintendo will never abandon them. From what I hear, the Super Mario Bros. movie was crap.

It never was that big.

I've never heard anyone talking about tomb raider in real life.

I'd say that series was dead from the start, more or less.

Halo went down the shitter so Im glad a 4th isn't on it's way. Or at least I hope it isn't

Why the fuck is COD in WW2 again, we're all sick of it.

My baby Gears will probably become a shabby sellout to but I pray to God that doesn't happen.

StarFox 64 was no failure, but I agree. Nintendo hasn't published a worthy successor since.

Hmmm, well that sucks for you because it's picking up speed. After Lego Batman they're apparently looking for other franchises to "Lego-ize" like Metal Gear Solid.

I would REALLY like to see Halo Wars fail. I dunno, it just seems to me that Halo + RTS = Epicfailsauce
I think that Afro Samauri, past the fact that it has Samuel L. Jackson in it, looks like an insane game.


Thanks aplenty to Phobotech for the great user icon.
