Which game franchises are getting tiresome?

I guess what Iím trying to say, which are you getting sick of? You loved it, but now over stays welcome.

The Borderlands franchise. I played the 3, liked the 3 a lot, but now Iím just sick of it. I couldnít go back and finish last dlc for B3. I was burnt out. Like how I felt playing Red Dead Redemption 1. Tried to play the Tiny Tinaís one shot dlc, but it was just more of the same. Same guns, missions, shooting. Just worn out and think Iíll hold off on preordering.

What franchise that keeps living is just getting tired and should be retired?

Gears of War, Call of Duty and Fallout come to mind.

Halo was in pretty rough shape coming into Infinite. Still felt tired but there was a little bit of life in it.

Gears of War. Im on 3 and it’s just like playing 1 or 2 which are fine games but whatever hole, blow it up and all creatures coming out. Fight boss with big ass laser. It all just blends at this point.

CoD I’m sick as well. Bought Vanguard. Don’t know why bc I’m loyalist. Haven’t touched it. Do want to do remakes of 1-3 though.

Started getting bored with the LEGO games, but it's been a while, and I'm kinda excited for The Skywalker Saga coming out in a few months.

Madden

There needs to be more competition in football games. The developers at EA have gotten lazy with this franchise.

Agreed!

Back in 2005, ESPN & 2K released NFL 2K5 for PS2/Xbox.

It's still my favorite football game of all-time.

Borderlands

I really like the idea behind them, but I'm just burnt out. It's my fault, because I keep on playing them, so maybe I just need to take a break.

FINALLY, I'm sick of call of duty. I mainly always came back for more because I'm a casual gamer but there is absolutely nothing to get excited about with that franchise anymore - oh, and I despise warzone - even before the cheaters hit, BR games are so lame for me.
