In my opinion, no. I believe it stagnates a developer's creativity and makes them lazy, all the while taking advantage of a part of the community that strive for updates in their graphics and teams. I'm sure there's a better way of doing annual releases, but no one developer cares enough yet. I would say that every annual release should be put on a two year schedule with updates in-between releases, so no one misses out on their team roster and the developer has enough time to make a better title.

I honestly would like to see Forza take a break for a little while. Forza games have had 5 releases since 2013 and I know that they are two different games between the mainline motorsport series and the horizon series but come on.

FM5 2013
FH2 2014
FM6 2015
FH3 2016
FM7 2017

I get that they are alternating but its getting tiresome and just as bad as being annual.

Agreed they need to take a break. For someone like me who loves there games I simply do not have the time to keep up, and it's frustrating.

nope.. but it sure is good for game devs, minimal effort, maximum profit just how they like it ... :/ sadly only indie game devs and a handful of studios like ID, Machine games and CDPR still actually give a single fuck about quality nowadays :/ everyone else just wants to flood you with MTx's and season passes that truly truly arent worth the price at all and ship you as broken a game as they can actually get away with

3 years apart is better I think. Yearly games aren't high quality or are simply copy and pasted material

No.....they aren't. They turn the franchise stale and redundant. I don't know who in their right mind would buy these games over and over again.
