Sonic should of just went to hand held. Have a core Sonic style on handheld allowing for focus on the 2D. Then develop a wider sonic universe that translates into 3D

No Legacy of Kain?? One of the best videogame séries, great story and gameplay, that after defiance, the game was abandoned. And what about simcity?? That after 2011 not good and not bad game. The game is abandoned as well

So say that every 3d sonic game sucked when Sonic adventure 2 battle was one good one?

i anticipated mass effect andromeda for a year... waited with baited breath.. set it to download at midnight... got up early to play it... then cried because of how much it sucked....

I love DMC I count it more as a prequel to the original games cause one he meets Vergil for the first time two he comes to his famliy home for the first time since his mom died and three the Downfall of Vergil DLC shows how Vergil became the villain he is in the original games.

...well at least Devil May Cry 5 is coming out and totally ignore the DMC timeline after Crapcon learning their hard lesson... although they put microtransaction where they "promise" will not be "necessary"... yeah sure... Crapcon

Silent Hill: Homecoming is decent in my view. I enjoyed it. Downpour could have been good, but has so many bugs it's hard to actually play it. Such a shame - one fo the greatest franchises in the history of gaming.

Hey! Hey! Stop being harsh on 3D Sonic games! Stop belittling the franchise, all right!?

I love mass.effect andromeda. I got ir about 6/7 months after release and even now i still havent done everything. It sucks that silly Fanboys™ who wanted me4 have put this game down. The story of the game isnt anything to die for, but Is still highly enjoyable. The gameplay Is great, for someone who could never afford the originals. I would love someone to pick it up and keep it going

I thought Andromeda was ruined solely by the influence of SJW filth, but looks like there was a production time factor as well.

Was I the only one who liked Shadow the Hedgehog when I was younger?

I feel like both Halo and Assassin's Creed should be on this list.

I'm going to stop buying new games PERIOD if, these fucking companies don't cut the bullshit!!! American businesses are, getting away with murder, plain and simple!!! I will buy everything second hand, including FOOD, whenever possible... We need to put an end to the greed people companies, don't care about the consumer anymore... Everything in this country is, subpar at best!!!

Why couldn't Dante just have natural white hair. He is half-demon after all.

I actually liked sonic Ryder’s zero gravity but the connect version no
Robert Blakely (1 month ago)
Mass Effect was an incredibly fun game, and while not nearly as grand in scale as we were promised, it was still an enjoyable game to play.

Timesplitters was a shame... Hell that game even made splitscreen local coop fun again on my Xbox back in the day ;p

I kinda wanna know why Konami killed Suikoden, it was a lovely RPG series.
Mike Warnke (1 month ago)
Yeah...um, when you hear “it was doomed before anyone even played it” thats not the games fault, its not the devs fault, whose left? 🙄

I'd like to know why Fear effect never got a third part. They were ready for production and I read that they even started but after a few weeks they shut it down. Why?
Steve Harrison (2 months ago)
Andromeda... was just heartbreaking.
GriffintheBoredOne (2 months ago)
That Timespliutters one really hurts...I loved Future Perfect and 2 was great as well. I was hyped for 4, but it never happened :( Luckily, I still have my copy of Future Perfect on the original Xbox

Dmc failed cuz it was ass
Justin Nappier (2 months ago)
Red Faction Armageddon, killed it not because of the linear game play thou that didn't help, It had a horrible ending at which you seem to now be able to fix something that was broken at the start of the game and left broken for years but suddenly now you can fix it. Why didn't you do that years ago?
that fit Asian (2 months ago)
I liked dmc
Chad Pugh (2 months ago)
I still thoroughly enjoyed Phantom Pain. But the second half was certainly the shits compared to the first. I expected Andromeda to tie up the loose ends from the crap ending of ME3 somehow at some point in the game instead of that ridiculous excuse for a DLC that EA released as damage control.
Joseph Lybbert (2 months ago)
I think mass effect deserves another chance

I see everything talking about Andromeda, DMC, and a few others but no one mentioned how Dead Space was killed off by EA, along with Visceral Games with it.

Red Faction Armageddon was actually one of my favorite games as a kid and I played the he'll out of it but when I grew up and played the other games in ths series I saw how week it was in comparison

Does anyone think Super Smash Bros will die
Daniel Barton (2 months ago)
How is Dead Space not on this list? EA completely changed the game Dead Space 3 was supposed to be by telling the devs they wanted more action where as it was meant to be more of the same as 1 and 2

Konami's own "unique spin"...

Crash, Spyro, Sonic and FF were my childhood favourites. At least there's remakes to make up for it, but I still find the newer games aren't as great. After FF13, FF went downhill with XV being terrible, and Crash was best on the PS1. I did love Sonic Heroes though, despite it being 3D

What's worse is that when THQ NORDIC went bankrupt it almost stopped making the Darksiders games and would have stopped on deaths run

EA ruined the Star Wars games and they don’t deserve forgiveness! Ever!

Thief died, in part, because the idiots managing these companies nowadays have this ridiculous impression that you need to have the same person do the voice acting who does the motion capture. Why is that a thing?!? I sorta got my Garret fix with Dishonored 2 but it isn't the same :-(
Dylan George (4 months ago)
Pretty good list. Metal Gear. What a shame

Crash team racing and timesplitters were great games and it was a big shame about mass effect Andromeda cos that game could have been special And as for konami,they really screwed over hideo kojima which was a big ass mistake cos he's a freaking legend in gaming,more than konami is

Biggest irony: Dante wasn't even that angst ridden. He looked pretty emo, sure, but really wasn't.
Daniel Wellington (5 months ago)
Why don't software houses tell engine makers to piss off. The engine makers, can't solve every problem (or accomplish every goal) the software house has. So the question is : WTF!
