Top 10 Video Games So Bad They (Almost) Killed Their Series

Cazaam
Some series of video games are just brilliant until... VWUM! An unwanted dreadful game kills the whole franchise!

I'll leave you other people to add others I might of missed in the list.

The Top TenXW

1Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

This game was unveiled and people got exited! And then in November of 2006, it came out. Ugh... This game almost killed the entire Sonic franchise! THAT'S HOW BAD IT WAS!
With game breaking glitches, terrible controls, awful level design, a marathon of terrible town missions, frustrating load times, that aggravating ball puzzle, boring hub worlds, abysmal ground speed, falling through the sand, disastrous camera, Mach Speed sections, boring gameplay, horrible plot holes, Elise, broken boss battles, Shadow's vehicles, broken gems, and a FucTon of other things! I took a page from AVGN's Action 52 review and this game reads just like that. A horrible rushed wreck that probably hasn't left the Alpha phase. The Sonic franchise was almost killed just like he was in game. Then the plot was erased at the end of the story making everything that had happened not be canon! I wish this game was non existent just like the game's story! - Cazaam

2Duke Nukem Forever

The game that was infamous for never coming out until 2011 and when it did come out I think we could all tell that it wasn't worked on for long, it was just a boring and generic 1st person shooter that would give sensory deprivation to anyone who played it! - Cazaam

3RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile
4Bomberman: Act Zero
5Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi
6Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5
7Dino Crisis 3

What if we took Resident Evil and replaced the zombies with dinosaurs? You get the Dino Crisis series. Fans thought the first 2 games were great but when a third was released... Uh oh! The entire franchise was left extinct after this meteor hit the series. I think the cameraman was a drunk T-Rex trying to hold a camera with his tiny arms. - Cazaam

8Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric
9Doom 3

I feel that this was one of those games that people make to try and be as scary as possible. The Doom series was awesome but this... Meh, It was pretty boring and just an excuse to use cheesy scares. - Cazaam
