    Just asking, was I the only one who unironically enjoyed the skylanders saga? I really hope not.

        A death I mourn every day is the death of Fossil Fighters. GOD this series was good, I love it. However the third game came out which was a massive flop, a decent game in retrospect, but an AWFUL FF game. The story was bland, the gameplay was a "you press auto and let the computers RNG your way to victory because nothing else fucking matters because your partner will just use up all of your energy" fest. It wasn't good. And its been dead for about 5 years now. Not a single announcement, teaser, nothing. The series is, unfortunately, dead. Which is really sad

                                                You forgot LBP... (ik this video is 1 year old)
                                                After that sony gave LBP3 to Sumo Digital it was a hell... lag, bugs, copied lvls and many many more... even though its sony’s fault that it died Sumo should’ve tried atleast once more to fix it! Its theyre only game after all... its just still sad that my childhood died in such a painful way... and now that Sumo 100% gave up... there’s no more hope for the LittleBigPlanet franchise... they already shut down LBPK and LBP-PSP, so next up we have:
