Would Dead Space be considered a franchise? But I agree with you, never before have I seen a trilogy where each sequel just got worse and worse until it was just a former shell of what made the original so great. And all it took was three games! At least for Resident Evil it took a while before that happened.
And that I can absolutely not agree with. Dead Space 3 was a step down from 2, but still a good game. Some had issues with it, but I thought was a solid entry in the series. However, Dead Space 2 was a better game than Dead Space in every measurable way.
Metroid x 10
Resident evil , Tokyo xtreme racer , Power stone , and Vanquish .
None of the games you listed besides RE are franchises.
Other than Vanquish, they are all franchises , what are you talking ?
