Top 10 Video Game Franchises That Should Not Get Any More Installments

There should be an end of these franchises' stories.

The Top Ten

1 Call of Duty

I am just voting this so Sonic isn't #1. - myusernameisthis

Aside from a Ghosts 2, yes, they've ran out of ideas, just quit while you're a-- never mind

2 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

No! Sonic is great - myusernameisthis

This series is basically Sega beating a dead horse, or rather a hedgehog. When did this series begin to decline? Was it Sonic R, Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis, Shadow the Hedgehog, Princess Elise from Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), or was it when Sonic Boom was released? It's unbelievable an icon fall from grace. Yes, there's good games about him, but then something bad happens & we all wish that they were good as the ones from the Sega Genesis when Sonic was cool as Mario. You know what that means? It's time for Sega to end the Sonic series for good. Sega, NO MORE SONIC GAMES! Sonic is the reason I hate you. That's all you make! You don't even care about your other franchises anymore!

It's Basically The "Ice Age" Of Video Games Since 2012

3 Final Fantasy

Can they just make another advanced Tactics game instead of a rehashed Final Fantasy Game

Final means the last. Why are there so many of them? I hate Final Fantasy! Don't you?

You just hate it because you're bad at it and want to be an edgy hipster.

4 Five Nights At Freddy's

This game just needs to die

2014-Five Nights At Freddy's 1 & 2
2015-Five Nights At Freddy's 3
COMING SOON-Five Nights At Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter
There is a teaser for Five Nights At Freddy's 4 that has a text that says "THE FINAL CHAPTER", which means that the Five Nights At Freddy's series will be over. I don't hate it. I just don't want it to get milked to death.

5 Just Dance

Even as much as I despise this franchise for being the same rehashed and formulaic dance game every year and for always snubbing Best Video Game of the Year at the KCA's as much as SpongeBob always snubs Best Cartoon of the Year, I actually did some research on T.V. Tropes and even the Just Dance fan base is unsatisfied with almost every new installment. While I can't be one to truly judge the games since I don't even play them, lots of fans have complained about how every new installment barely offers anything new with its track lists, game modes, and even the efficiency of the motion capture that the players dance to. But in all seriousness, there's really no point in Ubisoft keeping this franchise alive. If all the newest installments offer are just new songs, I don't even know why people still give their hard-earned money to this deadbeat franchise. You're better off just loading up a music video on YouTube and dancing to that instead. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Copy and waste every time just like Madden - Randomator

6 Angry Birds
7 Halo
8 Mega Man

But Mega Man is so fun each game with new stages, bosses, enemies, and more! Yeah it has the same plot but all the games feel different unlike the madden games, street fighter, and five night at Freddy's.

9 Grand Theft Auto

Yes, that does include making Slaughter Race a reality

Seriously, the only reason why they keep making Grand Theft Auto games is just so they could ange people by sparking tons of controversy just like Family Guy. - PerfectImpulseX

The Family Guy of video games. - PerfectImpulseX

Honestly this needs to be #1. - PerfectImpulseX

10 Street Fighter

The Newcomers

? Minecraft Minecraft Turtles are diapsids of the order Testudines characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs and acting as a shield. "Turtle" may refer to the order as a whole or to fresh-water and sea-dwelling testudines.
? King of Fighters King of Fighters

The Contenders

11 Pokemon
12 Paper Mario
13 Little Big Planet
14 Assassin's Creed
16 Super Mario Bros.
17 Madden
18 Fortnite
19 Mario Kart
20 The Legend of Zelda
21 Starcraft
22 Need for Speed
23 Bayonetta

Serioysly, the novelty of a naked chick running around wielding guns in a Lovecraftian world has long since worn off. Then again, (ironically) woke feminists will demand another game or three.
