these topics do not close when they are done so if you want to go argue over the results feel free to bump old topics and increase my brand recognition: https://bit.ly/YFTB8

Sad to see that Hironobu Sakaguchi tried with this series but it never really took off. All 3 mobile games it had have already shut down, so it literally is a dead franchise.

Which is a legit answer. It has enough games to count as a franchise but never amounted to anything.

Halo

Is what I thought of. Even though I actually love Halo 4 and Halo 5 was good enough if you block out the narrative. The expanded movement options in that game are on point, at least, and make for really good multiplayer.
