You know that series, one that you've known and loved a long time, and suddenly the makers decide to take it in a new direction, be it new gameplay style, new graphics, shifting of storytelling and gameplay balance, etc. And you hated it.

Which of these was the worst?

Sticker Star is the only one I've played and I hope it's just a temporary thing and not a "new direction". Paper Mario is an RPG; it should remain an RPG. Another annoying thing is that I was watching stuff from the other E3 conferences... and they've turned Plants vs. Zombies into an FPS. It was a perfectly good game! Why did they have to make it a different genre when it was good already?

Why is Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced on this list? It's the game that made me fall in love with Final Fantasy in the first place.

Agreed!

I'd kill for another one in the style of 64. (2nd attack doesn't quite count, it didn't have the same puzzle/platforming aspects)

Actually, PvZ Garden Warfare is a *third-person* shooter, not first-person. With that said, there will also be a PvZ2, entirely separate from Garden Warfare, that will apparently be pretty much the same as the original PvZ.

Bomberman.

People who voted Metroid should slap themselves, because there's nothing bad about it gameplay-wise.
