    Which game series has has experienced the most dramatic fall from grace? Where is the stench of Decline the most foul? Where the anus has been so brutally violated that you can't help but look away in disgust and disbelief?

    A poll added since lately we haven't had nearly enough of them. Only 1 choice allowed so think carefully!

    No other franchise ever has been raped so hard by not only the developers and publishers, but also the fans.

    Honorable mention:

    The SimCity franchise. Raped and murdered and thrown into a ditch by EA.

    Too many to choose the worst.

    Resident Evil needs to be on the list, Guild Wars, probably Warcraft.
    Wolfenstein, Doom, Quake, Tomb Raider.
    SimCity. Command & Conquer.

    And probably dozens of others.

    Now it's your responsibility to choose the absolutely worst, most disgusting rape of them all! Make your voice heard and get rid of the voices in your head once and for all!

    XCom, no contest..
    And that from me who actually LIKED X-Com Interceptor, and played X-Com Enforcer ALL the way through..
    It was.. really bad.. but somewhat funny..
    NuXcom is an insult that wears its skin, poorly, and spits in my face every chance it gets, invented the cancerous "2 AP system" and retarded camera that only turns in 90 degree because console controller shit.. and worst of all, the bloody casuals think they're SO GREAT for playing it. They don't know real challenge, or the pain of looking for the last friggin' alien hiding in a closet somewhere on a 3 story cruise liner....

    Worst Raped in this context probably means the largest distance between the peak and fall, but should also account for length of rape. A great series with one bad remake made a decade later (Thief, Duke Nukem) is still a great series. A great series that has been held down and raped with shitty game after shitty game, losing virtually all it's fans AND casuals and being canned with no hope of any closure... now that's a fall from grace.

    Edit: I'd probably have chosen Fallout but I feel like there's more suffering yet to come. They will take the crown when Bethesda makes Fallout 5 a mobile game.

    It's very tough choice between Fallout, Jagged Alliance, Ultima and X-Com, but I have to go with Fallout, the fall between Fallout 1 & 2 -> Fallout 3/4 is probably the biggest fall in quality, not even New Vegas can save it.

    No one said this was going to be easy. Only truly talented men, truly exceptional men - only men of courage are up for such a heroic task.

    Has to be Ultima. They turned a game where each successive iteration opened up entire vistas of interation with your surroundings into a fucking platformer.

    I'm surprised no one voted Command and Conquer. Terrible crimes have been inflicted upon that particular franchise, with C&C Rivals being a far greater defilement of something venerable and well-regarded than Fallout 76 could ever aspire to be. Bethesda is clueless, but C&C Rivals is a work of evil.

    Damn, that's a lot of rape.

    I'd say Command & Conquer (for being raped to death) and Fallout (for still being raped) are leading the charge.

    I mulled over this one for a while, but ultimately voted for the Ultima series. The only other contender was the Fallout series.

    As much as I'd like to recount the rise and fall of Ultima so that people would understand my vote, but it depresses me to do so. I'll only say this: Despite Ultima starting as a single-player RPG and becoming the first successful Massively Multiplayer Online game, EA's handling of the franchise killed it stone dead. Fallout survived to be acquired to Bethesda. Ultima died in 1999 and has stayed that way since. It takes effort to kill off such a renowned and notable franchise. Nice one, EA.

    Toughy, DK, C&C and FF got blatant unwanted ass-poundings for sure, but there's nothing quite like a corpse being ravaged over and over again. That said let them have their rotten vessel, FO's spirit lives on forever in cRPG paradise, always ready to be discovered by the next generation :salute:

    I voted Wizardry, as I care a hell of a lot more about that rranchise than I ever cared about Fallout. It basically exists now only in Japan with Anime graphics that make me want to claw my own eyes out - that's like going from your dream girl to something you wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole.

    Thought about Command & Conquer but I think C&C 4 was a bigger rape than Rivals - which is actually a kind of fun game for handhelds with a C&C coat of paint.
