It's rare for me to nudge on a non-adventures in gaming post but recently I've gotten to wondering, what;'s everyones take on some of the franchises that just keep going? I mean I personally think the Tony Hawks Series has been getting worse with every new release, with Tony Hawks Ride completely uninteresting me. I also much preferred Burnout Revenge and Burnout Takedown to Burnout Paradise, although I get the feeling a lot of you will disagree with me on that one. I enjoyed GTA4 though, but a lot of my friends didn't like it because it got all 'realistic'. Even games like Sonic evolved into crazy 3d games, although I'm informed that Sonic Adventures was good. Is change usually bad? Should sequels just be the previous game with better graphics and bad gaemplay elements ironed out, or do you think it's important that games strive to keep evolving?
I'm gonnna take the fence on this one myself, some games really do get better with each new release, but I've also seen a lot of franchises seemingly turn their back on me :/ Opinions please.
Oh, I tagged a couple games I used for examples, but decided not to tag the entirety of every major franchise to date.
