Falls from Grace: How Four Creative Game Companies Went Astray

1Up:

Many game developers live and die without making a mark on the industry, and others suffer a crueler fate. They peak with brilliant games and then fade away for one reason or another.

It's never a pretty sight, and we've dug up some game companies, large and small, that slipped from their high ground. (Compile Heart, Culture, Escape from Monkey Island, Industry, Inuyasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask, LucasArts, Resident Evil, Sam & Max Hit the Road)
