In can be hard to accept some bitter truths in life, like Santa not being real or that Rick and Morty isn't as good as people constantly bang on about.
The same can be applied to video games, in that those we once thought were absolutely fantastic are actually... not that great. It could be that we've removed the nostalgia blinkers and tried playing them in recent times, only to discover they're not as fun as they used to be.
Or it might be down to the dreaded "live service" implementation that has ruined an otherwise fine game, meaning that anyone jumping in now is going to met some with some steep price hiking and grind.
It may even be that time hasn't been kind to these following games, proving that whilst they may have been the high point of advancement some years ago, actually play like a shopping trolley with three broken wheels now.
But hear me out, take off those rose tinted glasses and contain that rage, as we look at some once proud games that are not as great as you think they used to be.
