The Top Ten

1 When George Lucas went from making the Star Wars franchise's Original Trilogy (of which all three Episodes are eternally classic films) to making its Prequel Trilogy (of which Episode III was the only even-close-to-good film)

And then Episodes VII-IX went on to be complete liberal-pandering prole-feed of the galaxy's highest order - xandermartin98

2 When the truth about Bill Cosby was revealed

And people thought the allegations against Michael Jackson were bad - xandermartin98

3 When the average quality level of Nickelodeon's most iconic and beloved shows went from "Rocko's Modern Life, early Rugrats, and golden-age Ren & Stimpy" to "current-age Fairly Odd Parents, Planet Sheen, and The Loud House"

Granted, RML, R&S and Rugrats are all INSANELY overrated, but they're at least better than THAT garbage - xandermartin98

4 When RareWare became property of Microsoft in the 2000s (as opposed to being property of Nintendo back in the 1990s), and Banjo-Kazooie got degraded into its hilariously bad Nuts & Bolts spinoff as a result

Let Banjo looking like Airsoft Fatty in Full Force during N&B's tutorial level (pathetically dilapidated house, vomit-inducing diet and everything) as a pretentious jab at gamers set the tone for the rest of that godforsaken game - xandermartin98

5 When The Simpsons entered its 21st Century era

I could still probably decently enjoy most of this era's episodes apart from certain ones like the Lady Gaga one, to be honest, but I'd rather watch Futurama almost any day of the YEAR, let alone the week or month - xandermartin98

6 When the DC Comics Cinematic Universe went into its especially "emo" phase after The Dark Knight's release, with almost every following film in the franchise trying to blatantly copy vastly better Marvel films and/or The Dark Knight itself

To the point where the live-action Justice League comes across as a blatant ripoff of Infinity War even despite technically being released BEFORE that film, no less (seriously, let THAT sink in for a minute, why don't you) - xandermartin98

7 When Teen Titans became Teen Titans Go

Unfortunately, TheTopTens has already said literally every negative thing that can possibly BE said about this - xandermartin98

8 When Metallica tried to turn itself into an alt-rock band

And James Hetfield became The Table - xandermartin98

9 When Spongebob Squarepants entered its post-first-movie era

Again, not nearly as bad as it's made out to be, but still a horribly disappointing portion of the show nevertheless - xandermartin98

10 When the Metroid franchise subsequently put out Other M, Federation Force, and Another Metroid 2 Remake, with AM2R (the fangame) being the only actually good game out of the three, and Nintendo copyright-struck AM2R in Federation Force's favor

Well, at least Metroid is being (almost) single-handedly kept alive by a better fanbase than Sonic's - xandermartin98
