Here's a Dagger. Which Game Franchise Will You Kill?

Illustration for article titled Heres a Dagger. Which Game Franchise Will You Kill?

Perhaps riffing on a Speak Up on Kotaku topic from last week, commenter Gusi A. Rincon wants to know which franchise you would obliterate if you possessed that awesome power?

If you were given the option to choose any franchise, and end it, either because you think its last game gave it a proper ending, because you think they are milking it or just because you hate it. Which franchise will get the axe?


I'll go with God of War. The three were perfect all in gameplay, story and graphics. Now Ascension is just Santa Monica Milking the name (and that Multiplayer? *Facepalm*)

Reading through all of these comments, I realized something that was blatantly obvious.

I'll just use the quote from The Dark Knight (I don't know if they were actually quoting someone else in the movie):

"You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain."

If a video game series goes on for just too long, it *will* go sour and probably never recover. That, or the series will wisely be ended before that happens.

Legitimate question:

Are there any long-running series with many installments that haven't gone rotten or sank into mediocrity?
