Sane with constantly introducing weird new plotlines and annoying new leads while keeping certain characters around just for nostalgia (*cough*King of Fighters*cough*). But they just wouldn't let go.

They're just coasting along on name recognition and nostalgia. Actually more like riding the coattails of their former self.
