HOTS? Their several last bad WoW expansions? D3 that required an expansion pack and relentless patching to fix?


HOTS - Perhaps not a phenomenon but it has a huge following
WoW - Dude, it's WoW
D3 - It was still a phenomenon, and a good, if not great, game on release. After the expansion and fixes it became a legit great game too

My PS3 dies towards the end of the era, but until then the Naughty Dog games were my Games of the Year each time. I am hoping one day to get a PS4 or 5 and get a collection of all their titles so that I can play later games. I was up to Uncharted 3.

LucasArts (before they became a mediocre Star Wars game factory)?

Maybe from 1987 (Maniac Mansion) --> 1998.

i.e. Secret of Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Super Star Wars, Day of the Tentacle, Tie Fighter, Zombies Ate My Neighbours, Fill Throttle, Dark Forces, Jedi Knight, etc.

Things is, they were prolific, releasing about 50 games in this period (and some were duffers)
