Top 10 Worst Spin-Offs

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "With the right amount of creativity any game series can be successfully spun-off to deliver something fresh and exciting, as the 10 games we honored a few months back as the best spin-offs ever showed off. Well today we’re looking at the other side of the coin at the spin-offs t hat may have intrigued us once but when they released we just wanted to go back to the way things should be and forget that the idea of expanding upon established game worlds ever crossed our minds. So today we are calling these terrible games out, hoping that they can serve as cautionary tales to the pitfalls of trying to spin-off a beloved franchise."

Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball was actually a pretty fun game.

Valkron12307d ago

I’ve got 1,2, and 3. Had to import 3 from Japan, and I don’t even like volleyball

Yeoman792307d ago

The only game I ever platinumed...

ChrisW2307d ago

DOA Venus Vacation is probably the best... But also the most restrictive in terms of modding.

Rangerman12082307d ago

Didn't think Extreme Beach Volleyball was that bad. If anything, the PsP was probably the worst (imo anyway).

Also, some other spinoffs I would also add on the list are Akiba's Beat, Slashy Souls, Banjo Kazooie N&B (not terrible but I'm pretty sure everyone wanted a third game, not some racing spinoff), LBP karting (not as good as Modnation Racers), MGSurvive, Resident Evil Survivor, Pacman 2 Adventures, Pokemon Channel, Hotel Mario, Street Fighter The Movie game, Twisted Metal Small Brawl and Guilty Gear Overture.

Top 10 Bad Games by Good Studios

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "When shopping for new video games you can often trust the name publisher or developer on the box to be an indication of the quality of the game. Names like Nintendo, Square Enix, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Capcom, Xbox Game Studios and Sega are world famous because they helped shape the industry by releasing some of the most defining video games of all time. Though sometimes even these great gaming houses stumble and put out a stinker."

Splatterhouse remake . Loved the og’s at the arcade growing up . Hell the best thing about the remake was the og,s were included . And left alive by Square . That game had so much potential , but the gameplay was worse horrendous .

Game-ur1474d ago

once Great studios getting destroyed is actually common. happened with ND and Last of Us2, Bioware and Mass Effect Andromeda/Anthem, Bungle and Destiny .

BeRich2331474d ago

Fuse should have been on that list (Insomniac Games)

Yui_Suzumiya1474d ago

Splatterhouse remake kicked ass

merryja1474d ago

I personally don't like these games.

East76lands1474d ago

I'm pretty much certain that any Sonic game that comes out will be terrible, I've not enjoyed one since the original side-scrolling days of the MegaDrive.

HarryMasonHerpderp1474d ago

Then you might like a recent sonic "sonic mania".

jaymacx1474d ago

For this Topic it says Good Studios that make bad games. Sonic Team hasn't been good in years.
