Kill Your Babies!: The Series Edition!



  • Inspired by the last two "official" Easy Update Kill Your Babies!, I thought it would be fun to tackle our own take on series'! That's right, time to decide, as a collective, and not just one entry, which is the best overall series in video games!

    In order to qualify for this list, there MUST be at LEAST five entries, mainline or spinoff, so no Mass Effect or DOOM here. Also, DLC and expansions do not count as a full game (even if it might be something separate, adds a lot of content, or is completely different from the base game) meaning The Witcher, StarCraft, and Warcraft do not qualify. These 55 series will be listed alphabetically, so it makes it easier to track down those you dislike for a quicker kill!

    As always, just in case there are new players, here are the rules:

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because they're good (Because that makes sense =-D)

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only four other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed from the last overall kill (not necessarily your own). This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: Per normal, we will have a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Your kills are your own, so be ruthless, uncompromising, and most importantly:

    HAVE FUN!!!

    Never been a huge Zelda fan. I like some of the games, but that's about the extent. There's far better series all over this list.

    I get that the Souls games are great, like that they really are, but I just don't get them. I'm on the wrong side of the fence with the series and become easily bored when people talk about the games and their excellence.

    Also, bard's UC hate is becoming too predictable. Hurts me a bit every time. L&R :)

    The first AC game was my first game of last gen, I was astounded by it and it made me go wild with expectations and really look forward to what Ubisoft was planning with the series.

    Sadly it seems they weren't planning anything and just intended to drive the series to the ground to a point where I simply don't care.

    I can't really even see Pac-Man as a series, I mean it's just pretty much what it is. And sure, it's fun for a while, but there's more than plenty of more interesting game series left.

    These are great 'turn off your brain and play' games, but I just don't feel like they ever really try very hard to be different. Extremely formulaic.. plus I've stepped on one too many Lego bricks in my life. The pain is real.

    Buff soldiers shoot things behind cover. Sometimes people die. Sometimes they don't. Sometimes you're fighting robots, sometimes you're not. It also started the concept of "horde mode", which now seems to get shoved into tons of games where it doesn't belong. It's even a part of Splatoon 2! Sorry buff bros, you gotta die.

    Huh, you took out the game series by the people who made Guitar Hero. Interesting....

    Anyway, with so many games, CoD does so little to do anything beyond simple iteration. Too bad, really.
