Top 10 Video Game Series with No Bad Games


The Top Ten

1 Grand Theft Auto Series

U only need to play 1 of them to know all on em are good

Hmm what about Grand Theft Auto Online and 4? Oh and the Gameboy games - codgtamk34

I just want to make it clear: all game franchises will have bad games. None are perfect. Perfection is far from what we have now, and probably will never be attainable. Some may classify as 'amazing' or will 'leave you speechless,' but that doesn't mean it's the best. This goes for Grand Theft Auto and all other series on this list and in existence. - Wolfy_29

But the advance was not good if we compared with the other Grand Theft Auto. But it does not sucks.

2 Super Smash Bros. Series

I personally enjoyed all the games, even including 4, which definitely puts me in the minority, but it's just my opinion! - Danganronpa

Even smash for 3ds is decent! - myusernameisthis

3DS wasn't the best though - Pokemonfan10

Okay, I agree with this. - RadioHead03

3 Uncharted Series

Uncharted has to be number one. Every single game in the series so far is a masterpiece unlike Grand Theft Auto and Super Smash Bros who for some reason are above Uncharted. - RogerMcBaloney

This should be number 1. Uncharted is an awesome series - codgtamk34

If your talking about the Naughty Dog games, than yes. And the PSvita game was decent. - RadioHead03

Yes, you have to accept that.
Golden Abyss seemed decent to me. - TriggerTrashKid

4 Dark Souls Series

Yep. 1, 2, and 3 are all awesome. - RadioHead03

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

5 Legend of Zelda Series

i agree - Yoshiandaglover

Man these are so good, my favorite are the cdi games.

Wand of Gamelon. Worst game ever! There's one. Shall we go again? Zelda II.

*cough* CD-i *cough* - TriggerTrashKid

6 Half Life Series

Greatest series of games I have ever played

7 The Elder Scholls Series

I thought Skyrim on your fridge was pretty crap. - RadioHead03

It's Scrolls I guess.. - TriggerTrashKid

There are no bad games here. Only spelling. - Ashes

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

8 Batman Arkham Series

Most people say Origins sucked, but I personally liked it (except for that horrible fight with Deathstroke) - RogerMcBaloney

Hello? Batman Vs. Deathstroke in Origins? He's killed me about 9 times now and I still can't figure out how to beat him. It's weird, because it says that countering too soon will ruin your counter, but after you break Slade's stick, you can't do the double counter on the sword. The battle is unfair and I don't know what to do. Can someone help me with this?

Two times game of the year

"If you're lying, I'll break the other one! "
Another great 4 game series - codgtamk34

9 Donkey Kong Country Series

Dkc 64 doesn't count right?

This was perfected every time! - Entranced98

Sorry, I made a mistake here.

I was right, No bad games to this franchose.

10 Metal Gear Series

Even survive was awesome

There is one bad game metal gear survive - Dvafan2

Metal Gear Survive - Callistowo

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.

The Newcomers

? Virtua Fighter Series
? Ys

The Contenders

11 Mortal Kombat Games

But what about the SNES and GB ports? - myusernameisthis

I didn't played all the serie's game, but critics says MK4 was the worst

Are you sure? - TriggerTrashKid

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

12 Pokemon Series

The whole entire pokemon franchise have good games (Including the sidegames and spin-offs).Sure,Hey You Pikachu!,Pokemon Channel and Pokemon GO weren't all that great,They are just okay for me. - DemonSpiritGhostKitten

Only one I agree with

Main series there is one let's go - Dvafan2

Pokemon GO - Callistowo

13 Fallout Series

As others have said, 76 is the first bad Fallout game - codgtamk34

I think 76 is okay to me

Remove it now thanks to 76. - B1ueNew

Fallout 76 is bad game

V 5 Comments
14 Mario Series

Mario series in general? Then this is kinda... False. However if you specify with Mario Bros and/or the 3D games and exclude spinoffs, then yes. At worst they're only okay, at best they're very fun. - Qryzx

Well, the main series of games, yes, I can agree. But including spinoffs, no.

Never bad, always awesome and fun. Best video games series EVER!

Remember super Mario world.

15 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

Kh1&2 are good...

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.

16 Kirby Series

Never played a less than incredulously great kirby game!

Kirby Batttle Royale? - RadioHead03

Kirby. Is. Mediocre. - TriggerTrashKid

At worst there’s rainbow curse and that one is mediocre at worse

17 Portal Series

Perfect series. I hope Valve makes a third Portal game. - RogerMcBaloney

Love both but 2 is better - codgtamk34

Both are outstanding games, but adding this seems kinda unfair since there are only two...

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

18 Mass Effect Trilogy

Mass Effect Andromeda was a big bust.
Oh, Trilogy, now I get it. - TriggerTrashKid

19 Doom Series

Doom 3 kinda sucked. - RadioHead03

Doom 3 wasn't particularly terrible... It just wasn't a doom game. It felt more like Resident Evil actually.

Doom 3 sucked to be honest...

Doom 3 was bad - NuMetalManiak

20 God of War Series

It is the best fighting game ever
it includes aggressive fighting,many plot twist,and lot,more

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

21 WWE Smackdown vs Raw Series
22 Left 4 Dead Series


23 Battlefield Series

Battlefield V - B1ueNew

Umm wrong Hardline, and also Battlefield 5 will suck too - B1ueNew

Battlefield V is a troll item.
Hope you don't own a copyright B1ueNew. - TriggerTrashKid

24 Crash Bandicoot Series

Crash Mind Over Mutant sucked. - RadioHead03

If exclude the crappy spinoffs that weren't even made by Naughty dog or Sony - B1ueNew

Twinsanity was good, just not nearly AS good as it should have been (also, I didn't get to masturbate to Cortex going inside Coco Bandicoot's brain) - xandermartin98

25 Bioshock Series

Infinite sucked - EliHbk

26 Dora the Explorer: Barnyard Buddies

It was aimed at toddlers... give it slack. - Maddox121

Does is such an amazing game! Guys if you are having on it there's something wrong with you like come on! by the way this was a joke!


Such a detailed game,

27 Tekken Series
28 Tomb Raider
29 Assassin's Creed Series

I guess... except Unity and Syndicate we're just ok at best. Those two games we're not terrible, but they are not remembered fondly by fans compared to the other ones. - RogerMcBaloney


30 Borderlands

This is true. - RadioHead03

Pre sequel was actually REALLY good, It's just the fans of the second one don't see that it's an overlooked masterpiece - B1ueNew

31 Mario Kart Series

Mario kart super circuit - Xomanxy

The first Mario Kart sucked. - RadioHead03

Good because of waluigi

Every single game is good. They all have flaws but are still great games - Randomator

32 Five Nights at Freddy's Series

All the games are bad and aren't even scary - ElSherlock

All the games were and are hot garbage. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

All the games sucked - Dvafan2

All of them - Callistowo

33 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.

All games are good if you look at them in the right way. Sonic 06 has the best ost of any game

Not even close. Sonic is a REALLY hit or miss franchise. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

Sonics de heghog is very coul

Have you heard of Sonic 06. - Demogorgan

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

34 Gears of War Series

But judgment sucked.

35 Halo Series

Shouldn't be on this list, since Halo 5 was trash

Halo 1, 2, 3, reach I understand,but if you are adding 4 meh,but you add that god forbidden 5 4&5 deserve to be a comic or heck even a minigame what I'm saying 343I SUCKS

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

36 Gunvolt Series

Mighty No. 9 doesn't count. - PerfectImpulseX

37 Animal Crossing Series

Until amiibo festival - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

Amiibo Festival - Callistowo

This was until Amiibo festival came - B1ueNew

38 Punch-Out!
39 Need for Speed Series

Nope. The 2015 reboot, and Payback suck. - RadioHead03

40 Blazblue Series
41 Final Fantasy Series
42 Pokemon Should Be First

Yes, I think. But remove this somehow. - Ikura

It should - TENTACRUEL

43 Ratchet & Clank Series
44 Azure Striker Gunvolt Series

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

45 Jet Set Radio

The series is better than mario and Call of duty!

46 Shantae Series
47 Megaman Series

Mega Man X7 - Callistowo

My cool game

48 Star Fox Series

Until Star Fox Zero, and Guard came. - RadioHead03

Just take out command and zero and we’re good.
The only good starfox game made after the GameCube was 64 3D, and I loved it. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

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

AHAHA, what a funny joke. - Rue

V 1 Comment
49 Timesplitters Series

Yes. - RadioHead03

50 Call of Duty Series

The older games are very good, but the more recent ones are complete trash, especially BO4 and Infinite Warfare. - RogerMcBaloney

Cough cough cough black ops 3 cough cough call of duty ghosts COUGHH

Almost every Call of Duty game after BO2 sucked. - MrCoolC

*Infinite warfare* - B1ueNew
