Top 10 Video Game Franchises That Lost Their Mojo

The Top TenXW

1Sonic 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.

In all honesty, sonic has gone on way longer than he should have. The original Sonic game on the Genesis was essentially a tech demo to show off the processing speed of the console, but since it was so popular, it was expanded into a full on franchise.

Now don't get me wrong, There are definitely good sonic games. But by the time the 3D games came around, it was clear Sega didn't really know what to do with the series anymore. Even some of the most popular titles like adventure 2 have gaping gameplay problems. And let's not forget the colossal failures that were Sonic 06 and Rise of Lyric, widely considered two of the worst games ever made.

Sonic has been stretched far too thin as of late, there's really nothing left for them to try to keep the series alive. Sure, they've gone "back to their roots" a bunch of times, but that can only take you so far, and they never seem t do it correctly. I think sonic needs to take a long break and get his feet back on the ground. - Jackamalio

Well, all I can say is that the Boom games are why Sonic is number 1 (not 06, colors and generations managed to pull the blue blur out of that disaster), but given how awful Sonic's fan base is, I'm not surprised to see this entry at number 1. Hopefully Sonic Mania and Sonic Project 2017 can pull the blue blur out of the mess that was Rise of Lyric.

Mario does very little to bring something new to vary his gameplay up aside from adding new powerups. Otherwise, his games are almost nothing but copy and paste mechanics along with slightly different level designs.
