Final Fantasy and the Shining series used to be, by far, my favorite series'. Now...ugh...both gross...

I definitely agree with Final Fantasy, but Sonic? Since 2010, the overall game quality of Sonic games have improved to. Sonic Generations and Sonic Colors are very good games, sure Sonic Team has a way to go getting the series back to being great but there is definitely hope after Sonic Generations made 3D Sonics fun again after so long. Sonic doesnt deserve to be on the list, 5 years ago it did, but now it's climbing out of the hole it was in

Sonic still deserves to be on that list. Generations and Colors weren't enough to wipe away the crap from people's memories.

I didn't like those two games. The only Nintendo console version of Generations had barely any 3D platforming (which is ironic, being a 3DS game) and Colors had an early level with this enemy that sent you back a bit if you so much as came near it.

lol! Disagree that I didn't say anything about Sonic? I guess I must be lying, even though the evidence is right above him.

Resident Evil has fallen...Well actually I'm on the fence about it, RE5 and RE6 were decent but Revelations was awesome so I have some faith it will go back to its survival horror roots.

Megaman could have been popular again if Capcom didn't cancel Megaman Legends 3.

Mega Man... I still have hope.

Not only was Sonic a must-own for SEGA fans, it was the only SEGA thing worth owning! (laughter)

Is the problem with FF possibly it focuses on graphics too much? Just look at the picture, you can barely tell it's a video game.
