What's your least favorite entry in an otherwise good series?

With videogames so full of long-running series it's inevitable that even the ones we enjoy will cough up the occasional dud. Whether you didn't like the combat focus of Fallout 4, or the sci-fi setting of Grand Theft Auto 2, or the underwhelming aliens of Mass Effect: Andromeda, or pretty much anything about the first Witcher game, it's easy enough to think of examples. So the PC Gamer staff got together to ask both the team and you: What's your least favorite entry in an otherwise good series?

The story is too old to be commented.

Homecoming was actually pretty damn good. Not as great as the Team Silent games, sure, but it wasn't as awful as Book Of Memories, for example. I prefer it to Downpour, honestly.

gangsta_red157d ago

I thought Homecoming was good also

Skull521157d ago (Edited 157d ago )

Ninja Gaiden 3, Halo Reach, Bioshock 2, Mass Effect 2, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Splinter Cell Conviction, last Ace Combat (6 I think) Assassins Creed 2, every Treyarch Call of Duty, and if you consider it part of the series, World of Warcraft

Oh and The Last Jedi

Homecoming was fun, but not at all scary.

Concertoine156d ago

Neither was 4 though, and that game is received pretty well unlike Homecoming.

Personally i think Homecoming is pretty good. The story is eh but the creatures, atmosphere and soundtrack are still top tier. It might be my favorite OST in that series.

Downpour and Shattered Memories float near the bottom, although Homecoming was the beginning of the end. Nurses from the movie, Pyramid Head just because. Fugly. PT/Silent Hills was a breath of fresh air

Warrior within was the best for me

cpayne93157d ago

Majora's mask was my favorite zelda game, but I never really cared for the formula established in Ocarina.

LiViNgLeGaCY157d ago

Not surprising. That game was awful.

FinalFantasyFanatic156d ago

But there are alot of FFs you could list as bad entries, especially among the modern FFs, I would call it a more polarizing series than a good one these days. I'd be keen to list 2, 12, 13 and 15 (not counting side games).

Abnor_Mal157d ago

Warrior Within was a great sequel and much better than The Two Thrones.

TedCruzsTaint157d ago

Majora's Mask, and SH4 are actually my favorite of the series.

Lord_Sloth156d ago

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa there... Back up a sec... Majora's Mask? Really? Many people hold it as their favorite Zelda of all time and rightfully so. From a gameplay standpoint, story standpoint, artistic direction, music, etc, it was near the pinnacle of the franchise. Anybody is of course free to choose their own favorites in the franchise, but to count it at the bottom? Imma need some reasons here, bub.

Mass Effect 3 and Fallout 4

PiNkFaIrYbOi157d ago

Why ME3? I mean I understand that the ending sucked but overall the game was solid beyond that.

gangsta_red157d ago

ME 3 didn't have that same impact and story telling that part 2 had. It was seriously the Return of Jedi of the series.

SatanSki156d ago

@gangsta_red: by story telling of ME2, you mean all theese soap opera level companion loyalty missions? Most of them bored me to death. Personal drama is the last thing i'm looking for in ME game.

C4rnos156d ago

if you're gonna mention a Mass effect, please let it be Andromeda ^^'

PitbullMonster157d ago

Dead Space 3, Killzone:SF and Mafia 3 for me.

Skankinruby157d ago

First 2 for sure but I loved mafia 3

Abnor_Mal157d ago (Edited 157d ago )

Really liked Mafia3 over Mafia2, i knoe thats going against the grain, but so what. KF: Shadowfall, was okay but definitely the worst in the console series.

MrSugarholic157d ago

Been playing it, since it's on PS Plus. But I can't say I love it, and I bet it will get worse as the game goes on. It's feels too repetitive, the best thing about the game so far is the cutscenes; which are done well

Jon_Targaryen157d ago

Mass Effect 3, Final Fantasy XV and MGS V, those gamea sucked so bad

KaaF157d ago

ff15 is the only of these that sucked.

I thought ME3 was terrible until I played andromeda.

joshljr157d ago

Heeey, Andromeda isn't that bad.
