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.

But they’re still wise enough to always put the MALE character on all the marketing and cover art to entice you into making the purchase, before they bait and switch you into playing as a lesbian shield maiden. They know if they put “Lesbian Shield Maiden’s Creed” on the box cover, no one would buy it.

I still had a blast playing Odyssey as Alexios in spite of their bullshit, and a lot of Valhalla too despite its issues, it’s just with every game it gets harder and harder to ignore it. And you shouldn’t have to be sitting there “putting up with” stuff, right? It should be an absolute blast to play from start to finish like the ezio games were, we play these games to escape the real world’s shittyness, not to be reminded of it at every turn. I wish they would go back to giving us what we want instead of what they want us to want.
