Top 10 Video Games that Were the Biggest Insults to Their FranchisesYes, this can also include heavily infamous fan games (cough, you should already know very well which Half-Life one I'm talking about, cough)
Two recommendations for high-tier list entries:
1) Series that the game is from has to have originally been good
2) Game should be one that actually goes out of its way to openly insult its series (again, unlike Halo 4, which is really just a bad remake of the original trilogy's gameplay/story formula)
GAME HAS TO ACTUALLY INSULT ITS SERIES AND NOT JUST BE A VERY BAD GAME FROM IT
The Top Ten
Every CD-i game is a piece of hot garbage. Anyone can admit it.
It spawned some good YTP videos though - Mcgillacuddy
"YOU'VE KILLED ME! GOOD! HA HA! BAWK BAWK! BAWK! BAWK BAWK! " - xandermartin98
Almost as bad of a title as MANOS: The Hands Of Fate, and believe me, the game is no better - xandermartin98
Link's trollface - mattstat716
Whilst this was extremely unfunny (and ridiculously easy), it wasn't produced by Nintendo/Game Freak. I don't think this exactly counts because of that. - mattstat716
Horrifically offensive and wince-inducingly unfunny PETA parody of Pokémon's "animal enslavement" mechanic, enough said - xandermartin98
From G-Man himself mispronouncing the word Mesa as "Messuh" to I Hate Everything and Killer Keemstar being respectively cast as an Asian-American dude and the president of the United States (cough, Keemstar is literally the Donald Trump of Youtube, cough), there is seriously not even a SINGLE dull moment in this Half-Life fan project's utterly miserable ineptitude; it seriously has to be seen in order to be believed - xandermartin98
The actual EXACT opposite of what a proper Metroid game should be, yet Nintendo somehow STILL had the audacity to almost completely take the absolutely perfect Metroid 2 remake known as AM2R down in favor OF it...oh well, at least we got Samus Returns, the OTHER Metroid 2 remake...anyway, NEXT! - xandermartin98
Wanna know how to fix SEGA? Fire the guy who's idea was Elise. - TwilightKitsune
Well, Sonic being fornicated with by human women in an actual official Sonic game is still considerably more favorable than watching Asriel underagedly screw his own thousand-year-old MOTHER'S brain in NON-canonical Undertale if you ask me - xandermartin98
First two games were pretty good, albeit VERY largely thanks to their music and art styles and specifically those two elements alone
Cartoon series was absolutely AMAZING
AND then basically every EWJ game after 2 immediately began sucking Triceratops schlongs, ironically as a rather immensely direct result of them becoming based WAY too heavily on the cartoon's interpretation of the franchise - xandermartin98
What would you rather play Hotel Mario or a Virtual Boy Mario game.
At least this one openly confirms that it's a genuine parody of its source material, unlike the Zelda CD-i games - xandermartin98
"Ah, here's the problem! Too many toasters! You know what they say! All toasters toast toast! " - mattstat716
If you think that's bad, just wait to you get a look at the game app Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.
Even with the overall Final Fantasy series already being the comically generic, overrated and pretentious mainstream dreck that it is (disregarding the existence of entries 4, 6, 9, 12, 15 and to an extent 7), this game is a truly abysmal disgrace to it.
If you thought Chrono Trigger was "Baby's First Fantasy" (which believe me, IT WAS), just wait until you see how pathetically shallow and easy THIS complete train wreck of a game is (DISCLAIMER: Chrono Trigger is still great on its own merits though) - xandermartin98
Being an action RPG is one thing
Being a god-forsaken STICKER RPG is another entirely - xandermartin98
I like this game... dispite it's many flaws...
This game was bad.
The story was bland.
The gameplay was a complete waste of time.
There was no incentive to battle.
It was incredibly draining to play (and also rather lengthy).
Combining all these things results in a game that's just NOT fun to play, and is completely unrewarding. - mattstat716
For the record I didn't add this. - htoutlaws2012
HOW!?! It STARTED its own franchise!
Not mega man
I am disappointed... - Johnalove
Ex-CUSE me? - xandermartin98
This game was bad, sluggish, and just really not fun to play.
Sonic games are supposed to be FAST. - mattstat716
It's for babies, basically. - mattstat716
This game started the farce that Crash Bandicoot became.
Pokemon Go! pay your taxes. - mattstat716
This game was awesome!
Needs to be higher than 06. 06 had fun glitches. Sonic's campaign wasn't that bad, either.
THIS game, however... - mattstat716
