Which long-running series (meaning: not a series that just started out on PS3) could you not get into despite playing some of their games?

Mine would be:

Resident Evil
Breath of Fire
Wild Arms
Silent Hill
Metal Gear
Valkyrie Profile
Street Fighter

^ I played a few titles from each series, and I just couldn't get addicted when a new game comes out for each of them. They're just like "meh... let's just try it out."

It's not like these series wherein I shout for joy whenever a new entry comes in:

Final Fantasy
Megaman (all of them)
Star Ocean
Fatal Frame
Devil May Cry ("old one" only)
Dead or Alive
Rumble Roses

^ I foam in the mouth whenever a new game for any of them gets announced.
I think I bought the wrong console this gen.

Castlevania and Resident Evil are definitely my two.

Castlevania I always felt played like a clunky metroid game and RE was - Wars World News - The most chilled AW community on the web.

Star Ocean
Breath of Fire
Wild Arms

The characters in these games just seem fake. They have fantasy-depth, but not realistic depth. Compare Squall's fear of rejection to Zidane's (spoilers for FFIX) "I was created to destroy, I hate myself!" I can't get into that stuff.

Pokemon: I've tried several of the games, but hit a brick wall of boredom about 3 hours into each entry.

Madden: Thought the 2K series of football games was superior, then from about 2006-12 I've found the games to never really improve much.

Diablo: Never really understood the hype. You just click, wait for the enemy to die, then click on the loot.
