    I never understand the point of these lists. If there is enough people out there that still enjoy a type of game, or series enough, that it brings them enjoyment and is profitable for the creators - why the heck stop?

    Just more shoddy opinions on disliking things that other people don't understand, or want to bash to appear cool by going against the grain. But hey, let's post articles that degrade the industry, and promote closure of games that sell extremely well, create jobs in the industry, and bring enjoyment to an installed and loyal fan base with each release because it's the cool thing to do.

    Gotta love these pieces, and their shitty elitism. Nintendo and it's amount of representation in the list alone, shows how biased and idiotic the stance taken is.

    I'm surprised Need for Speed isn't on that Top 10 list (even though I don't have it in me to agree that it does), or did alot of people already started forgetting about the series? :/

    I agree with most of them, but some of them I've never played one of them so I wouldn't be able to form an opinion about it.

    I agree with most of those.

    However, I love the LEGO games. Even if they weren't easy 's, I'd still play them.

    I'd like to see the Madden series continue, but without exclusive rights. They'll be better for it in the long run. Competition breeds creativity.

    The Final Fantasy series needs to get back to its roots and what made it great. FFX was the last good one IMO.

    Angry Birds.....well...I agree that it needs to stop....but I'm so damn addicted to it......

    I agree with none of them for the simple reason why? Why should they go away? For every hater saying it should die, there is a lover saying 'where is my next fix?' I hate Halo with a passion, but it was a good game and if they can make a Halo 4 why not? I love Dynasty Warriors and until Streets of Rage or Final Fight gets a proper sequal, its the only button masher we have.

    Agree with most of them..

    Sports games will always been necessary for gaming, so those franchises can't been touch, but improved is what we need on them. And yeah some competition brands for Madden in that example could be better for genre.... I pretty much believe that EA is f*ckin video games

    the other games some they are just unnecessary milked, agree with Halo, Final Fantasy, stupid nonsense angry birds and lego games, I will add God of War now, but some others are defintly no longer needed, like those dancing games.... music games in general...

    Call of Duty what needs its to improve a lot and make something different, they could have a good story, but they need a huge impact with new stuff, and by new stuff I don't mean a new weapon or a new killstreak award or a new cool map with a certain multiplayer game style...NO, what it needs is changes for good in the engineering of the game, the mechanics, the content, and a lot of stuff that make the mw1 & 2 shooters of the year... otherwise we will have the eternal shitty battle between this and Battlefield, as it is with for example FIFA and PES.

    cheers

    Halo should never die. And other than CoD I've never played either of the others listed so they can die all they want

    I stick with my previous response...but I will go as far as to add Metal Gear, the story of snake and big boss is over...now that Raiden is getting his own over the top game, and I (don't quote me) remember hearing in an interview with Kojima, that he would like to make a game based on the Boss, taking place in Normandy...

    I agree with most of these. Especially something like Halo.

    I may also say that God of War should be included in that list, or at least my own. It's had two PSP spin-offs, 3 games under the actual main story arc, two HD remakes, and now they're making a fourth installment that's acting as a prequel... Though we've already had a prequel to the series in Chains of Olympus.

    Additionally, a game such as Assassin's Creed might have an honorable mention simply because it doesn't need to be milked as much as it has. A trilogy is enough, and the official Assassin's Creed III looks fantastic, but both Brotherhood and Revelations felt like half-assed games that shouldn't have been there. I really loved Assassin's Creed II because of the massive amounts of improvements made, but after that the series went downhill. Features were added that were unneeded and stupid (yes, I'm looking at you, makeshift tower defense and brotherhood assassins to do already easy work for you) and others that could have been further improved weren't. Additionally, as innovative as the multiplayer is, AC should've stayed a singleplayer experience.

    I could go ahead and name a bunch of franchises that are getting stale, but they don't need to die just yet so long as they remain innovative.

    There are a few on that list i disagree with. I really don't think that Halo, Dynasty warriors, or DBZ need to die I really think that instead of that, God of War needs to die. Yes, i love god of war. But they really don't need to be making another one. They've done plenty. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't played, but Kratos's story is over. Why do we have to go back to when he wasn't a god. The story has already been told in between the other games. Not to mention there are several unnecessary psp titles in the lot as well.

    Also COD should've been #1.

    I would replace the lego series with the sims. Lego is one of those fun games I can actually get my wife to play with me, since she finds them cute.

    Like I said, i love god of war. It's an excellent game. But do we really want them to kill a whats already an amazing franchise in order to milk it for more money?

    A lot of those franchises have been milked like cows. As for FF they should just continue making the next game not do spin-offs or sequals. There was never a sequal to any of the other games until FF X-2 came along. As for COD I don't play them and wouldn't mind if they died. All those do is drive down the sales numbers of games that come out around that time or kill new ips just releasing. The Lego games can't really say too much because I enjoyed Lego Rockband and enjoyed the extra songs added to my library. Kingdom Hearts needs to get back on track as everyone has said and release the HD collections and KH3. As for sports there will always be a need for the sports but 2K needs to release a football game tro comepete with Madden and burst EA's bubble. DDR for the ps3 was just unbearable and in my opinion has alrerady died. *sigh* Now onto Halo. The motto for 2007 and Halo 3 was "Finish the fight" then why the heck do we get 4, 5, and 6?. Not to mention Reach, ODST, and a re-release of the first Halo. I have noticed that the biggest franchises that need to die arn't on the list. Those would be from Nintendo but if Nintendo's franchises did die then so would Nintendo as a company.
