E3 Rant: You got what you asked for, happy now?

Destructoid: In this day and age, publishers are always going to drag out established franchises, so I'd much rather see them stitching new dresses for them to wear instead of beating a dead horse. I don't think I'd want to see anyone beat a dead horse, now that I think about it.

Consumers-at-large aren't so different then me: They demand something new out of their favorite franchises. The key difference is that they demand something new that has been done to death by others. Publishers are in no place to argue against consumer demands, so they bowed down and homogenized their once unique franchises.

This is an alarming trend I saw at this year's E3. Here's three examples of great franchises dumbed-down and removed from their defining elements. (Doom 3 BFG Edition, E3, PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

Hmm. What about a dead horse being ripped to shreds in an industrial crushing machine?
