Gaming franchises that fell from grace (Digital Spy)

Digital Spy writes: "It has been suggested that it's more difficult to get to the top than to stay there, something that applies to many a video game franchise. Indeed, some firm favourites of the past have fallen from grace in recent years, unable perhaps to make the leap to a new console generation, over-doing it on the sequels, or trying and failing to introduce radical new gameplay elements.

"From sports games to rhythm action releases; iconic mascots to movie stars, we take a look at some of the video game franchises that have fallen on hard times, or simply failed to live up to the glory of their forebears." (PES 2012, PS3, Sonic Generations, Xbox 360)

I still don't understand all the hate for Agent Under Fire, Nightfire, and Everything or Nothing. All three of them were fantastic games with some of the best multi-player available last generation. That Q-Claw from Agent Under Fire is a mechanic that should have been included in future titles.
