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

Well, you could argue that it was never really uphill... - NorthernEel
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.
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
Wanna know how it happened? Microsoft just couldn't leave the then-perfect franchise alone, and had 343 just ruin it.
Since when? It went uphill in my opinion.
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
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
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.
Remember mario party 7? That Game was AWESOME! Then we have mario party island tour, which was just meh. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Yes it is gonig downhill Mario party island tour got a 4.5/10 why Pokemon on this list Pokemon x and y sold over 12 million -
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
Even though 3 was good in my opinion it was nowhere near as good as 2.also ea disbanded black box
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.
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.
Smash 4 isn't that bad, but I put Smash here because of brawl - Dragonj37
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
