Top 10 Least Innovative Game Franchises

People will like most of these franchises, but read the description before you hate.

The Top TenXW

1Call of Duty

Shoot people, no wifi connection. Rage. Squeakers. It's just annoying. - Garfieldtop10s

2EA Sports Games

They are all the same with different players and graphics. - Garfieldtop10s

Every single game is so boring and overrated.


Shoot people. Get shot back. That's every fps ever made, my good man.

Here's where I will probably get hate. I am talking about the main games on portable devices. Here's every Pokemon from the game boy to x and y: professer introduction. Get a starter. Grind. Fight rival. Grind. Get more Pokemon. Grind. Beat gym. Grind. Fight rival again. Grind, grind, grind! - Garfieldtop10s

5Super Smash Bros.

I've seen smash 4, and it doesn't look that good. All smash changes is slight graphics, a few characters, and stages. And the character choices are awful. Megaman and villager will be broken and PAC man will be downright useless. I do like mii fighters, though. - Garfieldtop10s


Customize person, place things, walk around. That's all the littlebigplanet games. - Garfieldtop10s

7Sonic the HedgehogSonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Run fast. Run fast into enemies. Run fast into walls. Boom boom! That's sonic. (I do like sonic games) - Garfieldtop10s

I swear you've only played the classic games.

8The Legend of Zelda

I'm talking about main gameplay here. Shoot things, slice things, grapple things, etc. I know Zelda was innovative when it was new, but not anymore. - Garfieldtop10s

10The Sims

A real life simulator that occasionally adds cool stuff. - Garfieldtop10s

The Contenders


Why, on every list, does there have to be a pre-pubescent Minecraft fanboy who always selects Terraria? Why?

13New Super Mario Bros

This game is just a copy and paste for super Mario bros. nes. - Sage_Naruto

14Supreme Commander
15Angry Birds

All you do is shoot birds at rocks - ikerevievs

18Assassin's Creed
19Super Mario Bros.

I'm a Nintendo fan myself, but the Mario series (2d platforming ones) just doesn't rub me right. All you do is jump, stomp things, go in pipes, and get coins. New super Mario bros games are the best example. - Garfieldtop10s
