Top 10 Video Game Series with No Bad Games


The Top Ten

1 Grand Theft Auto Series

Many people tend to forget the gameboy and gba Grand Theft Auto games exist - ikerevievs

I beg to differ, Grand Theft Auto V is a bad game

Can you explain how it's bad? Plus it's not an objectively bad game - christangrant

Even their first two games weren't that bad - christangrant

Grand Theft Auto 4 was not that good

2 Super Smash Bros. Series

WRONG! Smash 4 is HORRIBLE! The ABSOLUTE worst of an otherwise great series!

Ssb is the best game everrr

3 Dark Souls Series

2 was decent but not terrible unlike what the community says - YourWaifuSucks

4 Uncharted Series

If you exclude the PSVita game which isn't even made by Naughty Dog anyway. - cjWriter1997

5 The Elder Scholls Series

I don't know about you, but a lot of people seem to judge ESO, though I'm not entirely sure if it should be included as a part of the series...and then there's of course those "Oblivion/Morrowind/Daggerfall" is better than "*insert any other ES game here*" because [reason] arguments that are pretty pointless, because I personally think each ES game is good in their own way. Arena started it all, Daggerfall was similar to Arena with a few upgrades and improvements, Morrowind, even today, is known as one of the best 3D games of all time, Oblivion had a good story and a variety of characters, not to mention amazing DLC (Shivering Isles, duh! ), and Skyrim had the best graphics and, in my opinion, the best gameplay - Livirus

It's "Elder SCROLLS." But yes, none of the Elder Scrolls games are bad. - LordDovahkiin

Eldet Scholls? - FondaSu

6 Legend of Zelda Series

Asides from the CD-i games, all of the Zelda games are either amazing or not bad.

I wouldn't count the CD-I games, since they weren't developed by Nintendo anyway. - cjWriter1997

They technically count unfortunately, that's like removing the educational Mario, and Hotel Mario game or games from the equation. - htoutlaws2012

Wii u wind waker = terrible

7 Half Life Series
8 Donkey Kong Country Series

This was perfected every time! - Entranced98

Sorry, I made a mistake here.

I was right, No bad games to this franchose.

Let me start over again.

I was right, No bad games to this franchise.

9 Fallout Series

Brotherhood of steel sucks but the all the Fallout games are the best ever made


10 Metal Gear Series

This is one of the only ones on this list I agree with. Some games aren't as good as others (and Survive doesn't count), but all are great games by themselves.

Grand Theft Auto V is a terrible game, therefore Grand Theft Auto should not be #1

SURVIVE - Not_A_Weeaboo

The Newcomers

? Dora the Explorer: Barnyard Buddies
? Mario Party Series

The Contenders

11 Batman Arkham Series
12 Doom Series
13 Kingdom Hearts Series

One, maybe two good games. i.e. KH & KH2. Everything else has convoluted the story to an unrecognizable mess. Gameplay is stilted and overall a waste of a interesting concept. - Sleepwalkered

I swear to God that I would hate KH even more if it had Sonic or Fire Emblem characters in it. It is bad enough that Disney ruined Square-Enix enough with this series, we don't need other companies' characters involved in this. Thankfully it never happened due to KH not being released on a Nintendo console with the exceptions of handhelds, but even though...

KH is a total disgrace to all video game franchises/systems and no one can change my opinion on that.

It is a bad series, and yes, it has bad games. KH2 is the worst of them all.

14 Mass Effect Trilogy
15 Kirby Series

They can do anything with Kirby and still succeed in making a good game with the cute puff ball. - Rue

Finally it gets recognition - CNSucksNow

Oh and by the way, happy 25th anniversary Kirby! - cjWriter1997

There is no such thing as a bad Kirby game.

16 Mario Series

At least none of the main Mario games or Mario Kart games are bad, but rather amazing. Some of the spinoff titles range from mediocre to bad.

The series has almost always been amazing, and it's pleasing to see that the more mediocre Mario games are just becoming forgotten now. - Entranced98

The Mario series does have some bad games that are hidden, but it's still better than the Sonic series. - LemonComputer

Apparently Mario Hotel and Sticker Star exist, so this unfortunately should not be on the list. - MasterCreepy

17 Mortal Kombat Games

I know there are two games not really apart of the main series, but Mortal Kombat's Mythologies (Sub Zero), and Special Forces were not exactly good. - htoutlaws2012

18 Battlefield Series
19 Left 4 Dead Series
20 Bioshock Series

Infinite sucked - EliHbk

21 Portal Series

Portal 2 is probably the best game of all time. Portal was also amazing but not as good as portal 2. If portal 3 comes out it would be the best day of my life

22 Pokemon Series

Every pokemon games isn't awful but the best

Find me in pokemon top tens - TENTACRUEL

Best games ever boi - TENTACRUEL

23 Gunvolt Series

Mighty No. 9 doesn't count. - PerfectImpulseX

24 Gears of War Series

But judgment sucked.

25 Mario Kart Series

From Super Mario Kart to Double Dash to Mario Kart 8, these were all a blast! Mario Kart Wii was my favorite! Mario Kart 7 wasn't as enjoyable as the rest but it wasn't a bad game, so the Mario Kart series was always good.

38? This needs to be A LOT higher!

26 Final Fantasy Series
27 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.

Have you heard of Sonic 06. - Demogorgan

I think I heard more about Sonic Boom than 06, even though Boom isn't canon. - MasterCreepy

28 God of War Series

God of war really got me playing every month but since the new game has been realesed I am challeging myself on every game a really fun series

29 Azure Striker Gunvolt Series

I hope they make a 3rd one! :D - PerfectImpulseX

30 Jet Set Radio
31 Assassin's Creed Series


32 Five Nights at Freddy's Series

FNAF World... - Cyri

33 Star Fox Series

If Command and Zero didn't exist, I would agree 100% with this.

AHAHA, what a funny joke. - Rue

34 Ratchet & Clank Series
35 Timesplitters Series
36 Blazblue Series
37 Call of Duty Series

I don't really agree with this because the last good Call of Duty game that came out was bo2 and then the series turned into trash

This shouldn't be on here it's a bad game it has guns - TENTACRUEL

While it shouldn't be on this list, but imagine hating a game because it has guns... - christangrant

The games sucked after BOII and don't get me started on the fanbase

38 Sonic Series

No, we have Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric and Sonic 06. Not EVERY game was good - DCfnaf

Unfortunately I disagree with this one. Many newer Sonic games are either mediocre or downright awful (Rise of Lyric, Sonic 06...) - Entranced98

Sonic Boom isn't canon and wasn't made by Sega/Sonic Team but I can agree with 06. - MasterCreepy

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric wasn't that good, unfortunately.

Sonic Boom was like the worst game ever - Randomator

39 Bubsy Series

That's funny.

Are you sure about that?

These games looks like a bad sign.

40 Tomb Raider
41 Parappa the Rapper Series
42 Halo Series

Bad game it has guns - TENTACRUEL

A series is not a "game" having guns doesn't make it a bad game by this logic I guess Duck Hunt is a bad game because you use a Gun to shoot ducks. - christangrant

I have to disagree with this one sadly, I mean I might be picky based on how I view Halo 4 right away, and a lot of the later 343 games that were not nearly as phenomenal as they should be, but do I find the RTS's to be good? Honestly no, they have good cutscenes, but that's all I can give it. Halo and RTS does not seem right, and the fact a decade later we get a sequel okay not what I was asking for. - htoutlaws2012

43 Trials Series


44 Shantae Series
45 Pokemon Should Be First

It should - TENTACRUEL
