    3 seems to be the number.

    Guitar hero comes to mind. Guitar Hero 3 - Legends of rock was really legendary. But the rest... Pretty much destroyed the series.


    Metal gear solid 3 for PS2, fantastic game. MGS4 is still a good game, but it wasn't the expected finale

    Prince of persia, for me also ended in Prince of persia 3 - the two thrones. When it actually had a story.

    DMC 3, like people already said.

    I don't know how many of you guys played Genji - Dawn of the Samurai for Ps2. Great game, amazing lore and good graphics. But Genji - Days of the Blade its so disappointing

    And finally, Castlevania series. I did not even bothered buying other Castlevania than Symphony of the Night. Lords of shadow was a good comeback, but still not like the originals

    Resident Evil since 4. 4 was a god damn masterpiece, 5 was a definite drop in quality but 6...6 was not just a bad Resident Evil game, it was a terrible video game.

    1) I've played all the Devil May Cry games except 2 (long story). I belive the 3rd one was the best. Also, what were they thinking in 4? the 4th one is you play as that person through the game, then you play as Dante through the game backwards. Who thinks of that?

    2) I've played Resident Evil 4, 5, and Leon's story in 6. I belive the 6th one is the worst. I think the 5th one is the best.

    Also, I just want to quote something one of my friends said.
    Resident Evil 6 is not a game. It's a movie.

    3) I've played all the Assassin's Creed games except 3. I think Brotherhood was the best. Revelations was good, but the only improvement was the Hook Blade. This was balanced by "fixing" already good controls and adding that tower defense mode. Why?

    I loved the Ginger Bread Man's story on the Christmas one.

    I just remembered the Chuck series got worse. Season one was great. The rest weren't very good.

    They ruined it when they transformed him form a clumsy person into a super spy (end of last episode on season 1)

    I wouldn't say Devil May Cry got progressively worse. As a few have pointed out, DMC3 was a high point in the series and four only sucked because they made you play through the same crap twice -- the combat was great. The new one looks very promising, however.

    The Megaman X series got progressively worse after X4. The latest one was a total joke.

    Resident Evil hasn't been good since RE4, and Armored Core has kinda sucked since Silent Line. Though AC5 was a huge step in the right direction.

    I think someone here already mentioned this.
    I finished reading The Islands of the Blessed. It was boring. It wasn't as good as the first two books. The Sea of Trolls was definently the best in the series.

    Assassin's Creed 3 was bad compared to 2, all it's spinoffs and 1. So the series got better, then tanked on 3, I fear what AC4 will bring.

    Halo's gotten better from ODST to Reach and the quality sort of stayed the same from Reach to 4 imo.

    Am I seriously the only person in the world who liked Resident Evil, Operation Racoon City?

    Like all have said, Resident Evil. I played RE2 when my family was poor and we rented a PS1, no memory card. Took the whole weekend playing day and night, but ended up beating the game w/out saving. When I could finally afford my own playstation imagine my surprise that there's an entire 2nd part! Great game and it went downhill from there. Couldn't finish Code Veronica and never played any others.

    MGS - 1 was epic, 2 was meh, 3 was absolutely incredible, 4 was meh, and then all the spinoffs...

    Final Fantasy - Haven't liked any since FFX

    DMC - for all the reasons already stated. Haven't played it since 2.

    AC - nothing really added since 1. Yeah, a bit more variance, but a weak story and stale gameplay.

    COD - MW was awesome, nothing changed since.

    God of War - 1 was good, 2 was epic, 3 was absolutely god awful. Pretty, but how could you enjoy it w/ all the stupid QTE's?

    The Fable series has gotten worse to me. The first one was great but had it's flaws, second one was alright but could have been much better, and the third one was awful.

    Call of Duty, I used to love waiting for the next one to come out after I bought the Big Red One but ever since MW2 I'm seeing a huge lack of care for the franchise now.
