Video Game Series That Have Gone Downhillegnomac
The Top Ten
Sonic's an old favorite of mine, but it's no doubt that the series has been doing badly nowadays. At least the music has been consistently good.
The last "good" Sonic game, to me, was Sonic Adventure 2. Sonic Generations was cool though.
Sonic Mania saved this franchise. - BlueBobYT
Until Sonic Mania - lukemcnamara72V 7 Comments
Well, you could argue that it was never really uphill... - NorthernEel
After Modern Warfare 3, that's where it all started going downhill. Modern Warfare 3 was the last good Call of Duty.
Ever since black ops 2 came out call of duty died.
Play call of duty 4. then play call of duty ghosts. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Everything went south after Naughty Dog stopped doing the Crash games. - egnomac
Went to good to mediocre - spodermanfan1000
Why did Keniji Inafune left Capcom? There were too many Mega Man games. With him leaving Capcom, four Mega Man were cancelled. I am a fan of Mega Man, but I believe that his series has gotten to many sequels.
Mega Man -> Mega Man X -> Mega Man Zero -> Mega Man ZX -> Mega Man Legends
Mega Man Battle Network -> Mega Man Star Force
These are good, but I believe this is enough. Keniji Inafune has created Mega Man's spiritual successor, Might No. 9, so there's a good chance his legacy will still be remembered. Meanwhile, Mega Man has joined Super Smash Brothers, and we were happy. It's still best that the Mega Man series should end, and make room for Beck, the Mighty No. 9.
Wanna know how it happened? Microsoft just couldn't leave the then-perfect franchise alone, and had 343 just ruin it.
Assassin's Creed was getting so bad around Unity and Syndicate were awful and boring and ugly. Origins and now Odyssey have changed the franchise and brought AC back to where it was early on in the franchise.
Activision and Skylanders made it go downhill. However, many say that the series went downhill as early as 2002 with Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly due to the many glitches the game has. - dingodile2603
NOO! HE’S MY FAVORITE VIDEO GAME CHARACTER! PLEASE LET THE REBOOT BE PERFECT! - lukemcnamara72
The Legend Of Spyro Trilogy-2006-2008-Amazing😃👍
Skylanders-2011-Present-Spyro Gets Ruined😰😭
Go to hell, Robomodo. You put the final nail in the coffin of one of the best franchises of my childhood. How dare you.
Had the best glitches on the original X-box, now only glitches
Why the "everyone in one car"? Mario Party is about competing, not cooperation. The car only worked in Bowser Mode when everyone was working together.
9, Island Tour, and Star Rush were mediocre. 10 and the Top 100 were pretty bad. Hopefully the switch version gets it right. - Randomator
Mario party games have been going downhill since 9, but Super Mario party should be good
Noe it's the other way around, it has improved with quality and innovation with the newer games, heck, even Hudson Soft (original creators of old mario party) thought the originals were kinda repetitive and they didn't have any new ideas for new installments - darthvadernV 2 Comments
Since when? It went uphill in my opinion.
I liked it until Black and White - Gehenna
Oh because its not black and white and I remember the days when oh no I have to be a boy no girl player. Now its 700 Pokémon and its more like Pukemon.
I feel that pokemon has started awesome and gotten even better. every game has built upon the good old originals just perfectly in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Five words: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. - TheYoshiPyro64
Pac-Man never quite achieved the same success as Mario after his Arcade debut, despite their best attempt at bringing Pac Man to 3D It never quite worked out. - egnomac
Nom nom nom
It wasn't great to even begin with. Yes, the first game was good, but after that, it was just quickly butchered.
Yeah fnaf 6 is really rushed the jumpscares are not even foucused and creative its like fnaf 3 but drained out the good things - Toptenanimallovers
Mario isn't going downhill, the new artists that design the wii you games are brillient, super Mario 3d world got almost perfect ratings! - Harri666
He's Still Amazing Unlike The Overrated And Bad Sonic
Mario didn't go uphill. It went downhill by quite a bit throughout the 2000s. Remember, I don't hate the Mario franchise as a whole. But it kinda gives me the feel of straight-to-video sequels of Don Bluth films.
Final means the last. Why are there more than one?
This series needed to be put to bed YEARS ago. It's devolved from the illusion of freedom to final hallway - taishisohma
The "final" is because Squaresoft (way before the merger with Enix) was on the verge of bankruptcy at the time so made what they thought would literally be their final game not knowing how popular it would become let alone that it would get so many sequels and spinoffs. That said, the series has indeed gone downhill; the last really good game was X, and that was over a decade ago.
It was great until resident evil 5 and 6 were released then it was all for the look I love resident evil 3 and 4s story it was great but they wanted more now it bad story, decent graphics, and were leon gone the greatest character in 3 and 4. I have to be real through people are probably going to argue that biohazard sprang it to life, true but 5 and 6 ruined it
Let's hope Paper Mario switch is better. - bugger
Why Nintendo no one liked sticker star so why make the sequal the same thing but with paint and more generic - ikerevievs
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door-10/10😃👍👑-Masterpiece
Super Paper Mario(2007)-10/10😃👍👑-Masterpiece
Paper Mario: Sticker Star-5/10😐-Mediocre
Just dance is really going downhill since just dance 2017 was released. bunch of features where taken out and the game developers started getting lazy. The tracking is horrible and they released just dance unlimited and there own mobile app. Them releasing new just dance games is unnecessary now and a waste of time. Just dance 2019 was announced and jesus the game looks a hot mess the background has so many bright colors and things going on I couldn't pay attention to the coaches and the menu layout is so bland. Sorry for going on a rant lol
Actually the series is still going strong its just that KH3 is taking forever
Not really but kh3 is taking too long and it better be 2018
Capcom themselves have gone downhill. Not only are they now overdoing Street Fighter and doing little with any of their other games, but they've also become more reliant on crossovers with other companies than ever. Even Ryu and Mega Man appearing in Super Smash Bros and the cameos in the Disney movie Wreck-It Ralph reek of Capcom waving their arms and screaming that their still here and still relevant.
Oh, definitely. Once a great fighting franchise, now it's just a shell of itself, thanks to Capcom basically hanging themselves.
It good but not so good
Even though 3 was good in my opinion it was nowhere near as good as 2.also ea disbanded black box
What are you talking about?! Unless you're referring to business decisions, there's nothing wrong here.
Is Borderlands the only series Gearbox does right?
This series is getting a spiritual successor called Yooka-Laylee.
Who knows if there ever is going to be a reboot of this series?
Act Zero. Buff said.
If you played PlayStation Move Ape Escape, you had a bad time.
Damn you, Microsoft.
PLEASE GIVE US A NEW CONKER GAME!
Stopped being cool when they stopped naming it after the year it came out. Not that having the year in the name made that much of a difference but it does make it easy to pinpoint the exact moment the series lost sight of itself.
Awakening was awesome, but Fates was a step in the wrong direction if you ask me.
Ever since gates to infinity witch was terrible super mystery dungeon brought back all the pokemon but everythingelse was downgraded - ikerevievs
It lost itself when they added Solid Snake and Sonic to Brawl, then despite the loss of rights to Snake had a considerable fraction of the roster in 3DS/Wii U be third-party characters. Heck, the mere fact that there even WAS a ballot (never mind who won it) and it was open to third-party characters shows just how this series had devolved into a convoluted mess when it used to be as much a tribute to Nintendo itself.
Ultimate is only continuing the downward spiral by bringing back EVERY character that had ever been in a previous game and cutting none. That means the roster is now like 75% clones and characters who let's face it never really belonged despite their devoted fans protests are there still.
The fact that they let a bunch of idiots decide a new and sadly permanent addition to the game just shows what little more could be done with this series.

I was a long time fan of this series ever since my childhood but all faith in the series was lost when the trainwreck of a reboot of the franchise was released in 2015. - SelfDestruct
Far cry 3 and 4 were awesome, anything other than that, just pass - VideoGamefan5
