My Sentiments Exactly: Should a leopard change its spots?

Charlie of Xboxer360 writes, "At some point in our lives, we’ve all heard the phrase coined ‘a leopard never changes its spots’; the phrase is used in such an abject way it always gives us the impression that there’s something wrong and unchanging. From my perspective, quite the opposite occurs in the video games industry; a functional, working formula is changed at its core to something intrinsically wrong to the IP. What does this mean for the consumer? Let’s look at two examples of the pendulum swung too far in either direction: Call of Duty and Dead Space." (Call of Duty, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Dead Space, Dead Space 2, Dead Space 3, PS3, Xbox 360)
