    games franchises ruined by other company

    name me some video games that have been ruined by other companies or that same company that made that francise ruined there game by adding something to it here are mine for example

    the spyro series- insominac games were doing grate with the spyro series on the ps1 it wasnt until the days of the ps2 were insomniac games sold the franchise to seira games who turned the series from a collecting platformer to a kidde simple and easy non-platformer

    crash bandicoot- sierra also bought the crash series and just like spyro they turned from an awesome linear platformer game to another kidde game

    the rayman series- porbaly the worst out of all of them ubisoft ruined this once awesome series by adding the rabbids im not even that interested in rayman origins because i want 3d rayman game perhaps rayman 4

    ratchet and clank series- now the ps2 games are actually some of my... no scratch that they are my favourite games on the ps2 its just the ps3 ones, bare in mind i have no problem with them they are awesome games its just they didnt have the same "feeling" or atmosphere as the ps2 ones

    all sport games- im going to make this simple making a new instalment every year is not a good idea i mean the sport it self is not going to change so y make a game every yeat

    call of duty- ok ill just say that COD 4 is my favourite COD everything else is just garbage i mean its just like the sport games why make it every year only to find that with each new instalment they add some little gimmick

    GTA- the ps2 games were great because u could to whatever u want when ever u want the ps3 games however are too realistic and just got bpring after the first hour do they deserve the 10s they got... no

    super mario- again nothing wrong with them but nintendo should just stick with the mario games that work like the 2d and 3d platformer mario games and the kart series and none of that soccer,tennis basketball ect crap... mario party is bearable

    now these are mine i cant think of anymore tell me yours or tell me if u agree or disagree with me but please no hate comments remember these are my openion

    F.EA.R.?

    I love F.E.A.R., it 's one of my favourite franchises and consists of my favourite game character, but Day 1 studios deserve to burn in hell for that atrocious pile of shit they released back in June.

    The Tomb Raider series went to pot when it switched from PS1 to PS2, Angel Of Darkness was the worst. The series has never been quite as bad as that since (Legend was much better and Underworld on PS3 is alright too) but its also never fully recovered to where it was with Last Revelation and Chronicles in terms of gameplay.

    resistance 3 was ruined by trying to appeal to the COD generation of gamers instead of its true fans

    I'll say GT5. I'm probably going to make some enemies here but out of all the types of motorsport in the world why did they add NASCAR? I just don't see the thrill in driving around in a circle. Actually driving a real NASCAR I can see being a thrill but it doesn't cut it in a video game.

    The Call of Duty franchise has ruined Uncharted 3's multiplayer, because Naughty Dog tried to make if more like COD instead of staying true to Uncharted.

    Need for Speed

    The PS1 and PS2 games were awesome, but after Most Wanted, when the series started becoming available for the PS3, it just went downhill from there. Undercover is currently the worst NFS game ever.

    The Run is pretty decent though.

    The Gothic series. The Gothic games were originally a PC exclusive open world RPG involving Quests and great original stories. The First game you are a Prisoner thrown into a prison mining colony full of convicts that rule the land split into three non-allied non aggressive groups who each run some sort of trade essential to the colony.

    Anyways an Epic story unfolds ending with the defeat of a mighty monster that is a sevant of an ancient God of Beasts. The sequel takes place on the island but on a much grander scale and an expansion even adds old ruins on the other side of the island accessed via portals. The game is in essence about leaving the land but dealing with a mighty threat first.

    The third game is were it failed, they released the game BROKEN! so badly broken the community had to do what the lazy developers couldn't and fix the game. Then they tacked on a god awful and needless expansion called Forgotten Gods which I won't go into. Then we have Gothic IV Arcania and of all the things they could do they give us a new hero, when the first hero's story isn't even Resolved Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

    Couldn’t agree more Going around an oval track 90 times, with cars of equal HP is way to repetitive, and boring for me.
    There’s also not much skill required. “Just give it a little bump-draft redneck”

    Pretty much all of the examples mentioned are games still produced by the original developers. There's only a few that have been ruined by another developer taking over... most have been 'ruined' by the original developer, if not the original team. This is a good idea for a thread, but I think most of the examples could fit into 'Which game series has lost it's shine'-style thread, as they don't fit into this topic.

    The merge Squeenix. FFXII and XII just seemed off from the rest, and not for the better. I still enjoyed them for what they were though.

    Yeah it's called Arcania a Gothic Tale or something like that. Starting with a fresh name to distance themselves from number 3 probably.
