Every series has its high points and its low points, but for some franchises we seem to be stuck at the bottom of a rut with no clear way out. It's sad that some of our favourite series have taken such a nosedive, but that's just what happens sometimes.

In an effort to try and inform, entertain, and relieve some personal tension, we've tasked ourselves with highlighting our top five series of games that have dropped in quality constantly and consistently over the years. That's not to say we think these are bad IPs by any stretch of the imagination, just that they're not able to show the same amount of lustre as their past efforts did.

If you've been disgruntled in a similar manner, feel free to take to the comments and make your displeasure known to the masses.
