This.

Also, Madden and MLB 2K. ESPN NFL 2K was ruined by EA and Madden. Such a shame.

You can add NCAA Football since I think it has been a pile of shite for awhile. Technically you can add NCAA Baseball to that since it was canned for not making enough money.

was ruined by EA


Everything EA has ever bought or any franchise that they started before 2000.

Every franchise Blizzard was making before they merged with Activision.

Everything Ubisoft bought or was making prior to maybe 2007?

Any franchise that began using Microsoft's Games for Windows Live.

I wouldn't go out on a limb and say it's "ruined", but Reach was definitely a miss on the franchise.


And Splinter Cell gets my vote. Everything has to be an action game now.

Star Wars Galaxies

Not a franchise but it was drastically changed for money. The game went through two major shifts that ultimately led to its death.

First they put in the "Combat Upgrade" - This drastically changed the game to be more like WoW. It was bearable because everything else stayed the same.

They then decided that the player base had not shrunken enough and did the "New Game Experience" and tried to completely "WoW up" the game and made it class based and very very very shitty.

The original SWG is still my favorite game of all time and it makes me mad to think how bad sony screwed it up

Since I'm not a big multiplayer person I feel like Halo was ruined for me. They put more resources into the multiplayer, which is where the money is, and took away from the campaign. Same goes for COD. I still want a campaign as long as the first Halo.

That probably won't happen unless you play GTA or Assassin's Creed or some other game like that.

Diablo
Warcraft
Starcraft (not quite yet, but if things I've heard are correct, heart of the swarm will flop)
Final Fantasy
Battlefield will soon be heading this direction

These companies need to take a queue from Valve. Always produce quality products and the end results will be better.

Anything EA has put its scummy, whore fingers in is the correct answer.

Not sure if Final Fantasy games were ruined because of money, but man has those games taken a nosedive. Otherwise, Resident Evil and Cod tops my list.

If you include FFXIV, that was definitely a money move. It was an attempt to hook the asian markets and get millions of subscribers fast.

Splinter cell for sure. I like being sneaky sneaky, if I want to battle hordes of guys with an assault rifle I play an FPS.
