Which is a shame, because I thoroughly enjoyed the first 2 Rock Band games. When the 3rd one came out, however, I just began to drift away from the series. And I find that dreadful, since this was the first game that they FINALLY put a Nightwish song on (even if it was DLC-only). It still doesn't change the fact that, like NCZ said, Harmonix milked the franchise like Hell. By the time the first trailer for Lego Rock Band came out, I told myself "Okay, I am officially done. They have given up."

However... ...had they ever put on playable tracks for "Comfortably Numb" and "Wish You Were Here", then MAYBE I'd come back.

It's too bad other game companies haven't learned from this... >_>
Assassins Creed. -_- I loved the first two games, but when you pump out a new game in a series with only a tiny amount of innovation and plot progression each year I get tired of trying to keep up with it and they get stale.

God Eater and Sengoku Basara are getting new games, and Valkyria Chronicles III came out fairly recently (in Japan only, but the point stands).

Battle Arena Toshinden, yes the rep is terrible now, yes I do think they should have another game

If I joined much sooner I would have said Strider but there was that 2014 game(and no Hien boo).

Psychic Force

Abalaburn, I doubt much people know about this though as it's Japan only and released all the way back in 1998 (funfact, my avatar is from this game)

Kessen, the third game is great why did they stop there?

Cyberbots

Ore no Ryouri another obscure Japan only game I think there were some underground disc in the US though

The Bouncer, pretty fun, shortness aside

F-Zero, I'm looking at you.... *hint, hint*

The reason for this is alledgedly because Miyamoto can't come up with any good concepts for it.


Oh, he can come up with some with some good concepts, alright....
but then, he decides to go off & use said concepts in a completely different game!
*cough*Mario Kart 8*cough*
(Man, I should REALLY get that cough looked at, shouldn't I?)

A new Bloody Roar would be nice (as long as it's not like 4), and good news is Mother 4 is happening (as a fan game), and it's due out soonish
