10 Video Game Franchises That Have Lost Their Way

WC - It’s always disheartening when a video game franchise starts out stunning, but owing to commercial concerns, greed, or simple creative bankruptcy, begins to founder, somewhat ruining the fond memories you might have of the stellar earlier instalments. Still, some of these franchises aren’t past redemption if the developers pull their socks up, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed, as many of them have new instalments emerging in the current months.

Pokemon started to go downhill after silver gold and crystal imo. I mean, what were they thinking throwing out a star character like Youngster Joey?!?
jghvhv  +   983d ago
Exactly! That's when everyone started to say Pokemon was going down hill.It just needs more Joey and Rattata.Trust me,Youngster Tristian and his Bidoof are slimeballs.

Ah SOCOM how I miss ye so...

My favorite online game. Still to this day no shooter offers as much as socom did. That and counterstrike are my faves. socom does feel a lot like a 3rd person counterstrike.
How I miss those maps.

He says he might be wrong about black ops 2 doing bad in sells. Everybody knows it is going to have monster sells and call of duty games most likely will for at least the next 3 years.

They all have one thing in common they were sequeled to death. I get it that there franchises, but almost all of those games had so many releases they they just got boring!

Think the problem with Tomb Raider is that it got stuck in the past even when technology improved which all it's competitors' used to their advantage.

Do have high expectations with this newly re-booted Tomb Raider prequel to answer and wipe-out all our doubts about the series.
