Via the ever-excellent Game|Life
, a post on Games Radar that details seven destroyed game franchises
, taken from us in their prime by callous game publishers. Running the gamut from the venerable Sonic
(of whose decline we've already spoken
) to the good-to-crappy-in-two-years Viewtiful Joe
, these are all games that just deserved better. I personally lament the decline of the Tomb Raider
series (number 7 on the list) the most. Her most recent outing was much better than previous iterations, and I definitely hope that Eidos can keep up the momentum. Are there any series that you feel have fallen from heights that should have made the list?
