We've all had our fair share of disappointments these last few years. A popular game series has an anticipated sequel, and it's impact is damaged by unwarranted nannying from the game itself, or its vocal staff on Twitter. Which game series did you like, that had a poor sequel?

One of mine is: The World Ends with You: Neo. Apparently it's dub is aggressively political? For my own health, I'm not reading that.

I would imagine anti-capitalism/anti-war to be pretty leftist. The games have also consistently embraced themes of diversity, showing that there are ghouls and synths that do offer support and good opportunity for you, the main character. There were synths who were literally programmed drones for the antagonist, but there were also synths who were escaping from that life and wanting to work for the good of the whole of humanity. There were ghouls who were mindless animals, and others, "sentient ghouls" which were also productive members of society only ostracized for their looks when under their skin (or lack thereof) they were kind people.

Have you played them?
