Top 10 Video Games That Killed Their Franchise


The Top TenXW

1Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

What idiot thought it would be a good idea to take a decent mech game by taking away the iconic steel battalion controller and force you to attempt to try to cooperate with a "broken, poorly made, PlayStation eye knock off that actively hates its players" if you want to play the game (you're not even allowed to use a standard controller). It's still better than ninja gaiden 3 through (at least heavy armor had some attempts at innovation and effort). I have an idea from software, release a next gen version for all hd consoles, fix what was wrong with the game, add 60 frames per second, add new features, and give an option to use either a standard controller, game pad (wii u), or steel battalion controller. There clearly is potential and effort put here capcom, don't let it go to waste. Also stop randomly cancelling megaman games just so you can blame it on the fans.

2Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness

I'm glad this piece of crap exists, why because crystal took the license off core design's hands to make a proper tomb raider game and reinvent the tomb raider formula to turn something outdated and tired to something that still holds up today with a reboot that's in my opinion better than the uncharted series.

3Bubsy 3D

This is sadly the best game in the series, they gave you the option to turn off bubsy's voice, it's 3D so you can actually see what's in front of you, and the health mechanic came back from Busby 2; the game is still horrible however, the level design and gimmicks are uncreative, dull, and non-exist, the game was extremely out-dated when it came out, the 1st boss is confusing, none of the other bosses are impressive in any way, the graphics are interestingly horrible, and the game is so easy and boring.

Bubsy was pretty much a failure from the start this game pretty much finished off his career. - egnomac
