Call of Duty and Angry Birds would like a word with you.

Seriously. I walked into a Walmart yesterday and found Angry Birds air fresheners, for heaven's sake.

All of the Pokemon main entries are very good. So good that they can still release 2 version of the game and it will still sell like hotcakes. And a decent amount of the spinoffs are good as well.

Milked franchises are usually much worse off in terms of quality. Yes, Ash is still a n00b in the anime. Yes, there's all kinds of merchandise (some of it pretty good). And yes, the TGC isn't as good as many others, though it's still a fun game in its own right. But the games is where it's at, it's the driving force of Pokemon. And that's more than alright.


I agree stopped watching the anime but the games are far better.

Sonic the hedgehog is on almost every playable device.

Megaman probably comes next.

Rovio is getting there and undoubtedly copying Game Freak's business model, but fortunately, their games are priced at a reasonable $0.00 - $2.99 per title. And they've also tried to innovate through "spinoff" titles like Bad Piggies, compared to Game Freak which outsources all spinoffs to 3rd party studios.

Doesn't matter. Milked or no, they're popular for a very good reason, even if the TC were destined to entirely miss the point on it.
