Top 10 Things that Started Out Being Good but Then Became Extremely Lame and Pretentious
The first 10 season were gold, but oh my...
It started to go downhill very fast.
Never really read them that much.
One that I could actually agree with. The first game was fine as it is; a tale of two survivors in a plague apocalypse doing whatever it takes to survive, in addition to showcasing a surrogate father-daughter relationship and what someone would do for their loved ones, regardless of the extremity of their actions. Harsh and brutal, yes, but there's a theme that most can appreciate.
Enter the sequel, where said relationship buildup and potential is thrown out the window and we end up getting a ridiculous revenge plot that goes nowhere and then expects us to feel bad for a character that makes a wholly unsympathetic impression and characterization. Add in the overdone Aesop of "Revenge is Bad" and execute it badly, alongside other sorts of questionable narrative decisions and you've got the Video Game equivalent of an Oscar Bait movie.
The Second game was trash.
I personally think The Bends was mediocre, and everything after OK Computer was amazing. I respect your opinion though, Radiohead isn't for everyone.
OK Computer was a good album, but I haven't really enjoyed listening to anything after that. It wasn't an easy listen.
I only remember it for having that one ending.
Thankfully it's getting a good comeback.
Oh yeah. That company.
You do know that Metallica actually went back to their Thrash roots in Death Magnetic, right.
Also, you're excluding the fact that Megadeth and Anthrax technically tried to do the same thing as Metallica by also changing their style of music back in the 90s (Megadeth's music got softer starting with Countdown to Extinction and Anthrax dabbled into Alt Metal and even Rap). The reason was because Thrash Metal became a fad during the mid-late 90s and wasn't as commercially or critically successful as it used to be back in the 80s.
But then that begs me the question; how is changing your sound "pretentious"? Loads (pun intended) of other bands and musicians change their style and sound in some way or another, so what's the issue here? They sold out? They're not as good as they used to be back in the day? To be honest, those are now pretty weak arguments due to how we throw it around and slap it onto different artists to justify it as being bad. Selling out or changing your style doesn't make your music bad, let alone pretentious. Metallica is no different. Sure their mid-late 90s albums aren't the best, but they're also a lot better than you'd expect.
I never grew up in the 90s and early 2000s because I was born in 2004. I started watching Nickelodeon when I was around 7. At that time, shows like Fanboy and Chum Chum, Tuff Puppy, Breadwinners, and Sanjay and Craig were on, but thankfully I never watched them. Instead, I watched SpongeBob, iCarly, Victorious, and FOP. I really wish I grew up watching Rocko's Modern Life, old SpongeBob only, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Jimmy Neutron, Invader Zim, Danny Phantom, My Life as a Teenage Robot, CatDog, Angry Beavers, Ren and Stimpy, Doug, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Wild Thornberrys, Drake and Josh, and even old Fairly OddParents. When I watched Fairly OddParents as a kid, they would only air seasons 5-9 and never anything from seasons 1-4. Nowadays, we have the abomination known as The Loud House, The Patrick Star Show, Kamp Koral, etc.
The only shows I watch on this network now a days are The Loud House and The Casagrandes.
Don't really watch anime, but the 2017 movie wasn't good at all.
Each one was worse than the last. Let's hope The Matrix 4 ends that cycle.
This shouldn't be on the list. The game has been around for over five years, yet it's still a well known game and meme on the internet.
They've been getting extremely lazy, and you can't watch anything without having to pay for their streaming service, or just getting a DVD.
Like a lot of shows on this list it started good then quickly went downhill before sent to the Nicktoon network where it died a slow and painful death.
There only needed to be two films, tops.
Linkin Park Started out as a great band, then it became slightly worse with every album until everything completely imploded with A Thousand Suns. That was when they became an outright bad band. Ever since Chester's death, they've been trying to continue the band but they've been unable to get anything done since his death.
Once John K was fired the show really dipped in quality and got so much worse in season 4 and don't even get me started on Adult Party Cartoon.
For the longest time, Pixar was dominating the animation industry with every single movie they've made being a cultural phenomenon from Toy Story up until Toy Story 3. They kept hitting us with banger after banger starting with Toy Story then A Bug's Life to Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc. Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille, WALL-E, Up and Toy Story 3. But when Cars 2 was released, Pixar began to take a decline in which they put out some bad/mediocre films like Brave, The Good Dinosaur, Onward, Turning Red. But we did get Inside Out and Coco which were critically acclaimed masterpieces. Now that Lightyear was released to theaters, it bombed so hard. I've never seen the movie but it dosen't look good. So because of the underwhelming performance of Lightyear, we don't know if Pixar will ever redeem themselves let's just hope Elemental will save the company.
Wrong. Every Pixar movie is a masterpiece (Even The Good Dinosaur and Cars 2)! This company always makes perfect movies with heartwarming and unique messages along with remarkably detailed animation with interesting storylines. Pixar isn't getting lame and pretentious. If anything, it may be getting better. Can't wait for those new movies like Luca (coming out this summer), Turning Red, and Lightyear!
Nintendo was founded in 1889 as Nintendo Karuta by craftsman Fusajiro Yamauchi and originally produced handmade hanafuda playing cards. After venturing into various lines of business during the 1960s and acquiring a legal status as a public company, Nintendo distributed its first console, the Color TV-Game, in 1977. It gained international recognition with the release of Donkey Kong in 1981 and the Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Mario Bros. in 1985. ...read more.
