With the advent of any great Game franchise comes the concept of Money making by extensively milking the franchise to dryness as Developers and Publishers find different ways to exploit the winning formula laid down by it.
Though this concept of utilizing the Fandom of the franchise to create boatloads of sequels definitely is rewarding to the Gamers but it definitely becomes stale after a couple of installments. The Publishers and Devs making games for the Current generation of Consoles have literally crossed the line when it comes milking of a franchise releasing Annual sequels with gameplay features and tweaks which should have been in the original installment and thereby limiting the uniqueness Games. Though there are Devs who have successfully created masterpieces but they are very scarce in number.
These are Quite possibly the Top 5 Franchises that have been milked to dryness by the Publishers.
SE aren't very good at milking their franchises are they? I would have thought their little affair with Disney would have taught them about reeling in the masses by giving away crappy plastic toys with hamburgers.
What are all these knobs for? To put their hands in the air.
