    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.

    Yep, I have no interest at all for this series. I played one ages ago at a friends house for five minutes and that was enough for me.

    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.

    Racing games in general mean very little to me, and Need for Speed has never appeared as particularly ambitious in that genre anyway.

    Sonic is a franchise that should go away for a while, and come back with a proper good game, instead of showing up with shitty to mediocre-at-best game one after another.

    Metroid clearly doesn't want to be played anymore by anyone, so that lack of will to live forces my hand to do this.

    Apparently I'm killing all the buff dude bros on this list. We have a protagonist here that is consumed with rage and vengeance which should equate to an interesting story, but you just never really feel anything for him as he's consistently one-note. The newest installment looks like it may fix some of the problems I have with the series, but until that happens... nope.
