** ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' has its own issues, as well. Starting in October 2015 with the release of the John Wick crossover, and increasingly after the introduction of The Butcher and her first weapon pack DLC, many fans bemoaned the changes in the game's tone, going from an overall serious game about crime with a subtle narrative of government corruption and conspiracies with AcceptableBreaksFromReality to a big joke ridden with out-of-place crossovers, goofy, gimmicky content and nonsensical plotslines that detract from the immersion and aesthetic of the game, with the Chivalry Pack, Meltdown Heist, BBQ Pack, Hardcore Henry Heists and abundance of throwaway playable characters serving as prime examples. It's become so bad that some fans deny that said content exists within the game canon, or that is was all simply imagined by the AxCrazy protagonist, Wolf.

* ''VideoGame/inFamous'': Portions of the fanbase disregard Second Son as canon, due to a protagonist that lacked chapter development, a shallow story, and the acceptance of the Evil Karma endings by some other fans.

** Though many people dislike ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', even people who do like the game will declare FD on "My Hands" by Music/LeonaLewis having replaced the original theme song, "Kimi ga Iru Kara"[[note]]"Because You're Here"[[/note]] by [[Music/SugawaraSayuri Sayuri Sugawara]] in the NA/EU version, mainly because "Kimi ga Iru Kara" was composed specifically for the game, by the composer of the rest of the game's soundtrack, Creator/MasashiHamauzu.
** Speaking of Final Fantasy XIII and it's sequels, a lot of fans of the first 12 games like to believe 13 and it's sequels never happened, especially given the CreatorsPet nature of Lightning whom the developers seem to adore shoehorning her into nearly every spinoff Final Fantasy game as a major (if not THE main) hero of games like Dissidia 012, Theaterhythm, the phone game Records Keeper, and many more. It's gotten to the point that Let's Player SuperJeenius, one of the people who happen to like the game, has had to defend his viewpoints in almost every one of his streams just because it's so unheard of Final Fantasy XIII receiving any kind of praise. Final Fantasy XIII has essentially become The Matrix in terms of being love it or hate it.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' seems to be headed in the same direction thanks to its [[spoiler:DownerEnding that implies every character has died with the exception of Lightning and the BigBad]]. However, ''VideoGame/{{Lightning Returns|FinalFantasyXIII}}'' (the sequel) clears all of that up.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' tend to get this for being [=MMORPGs=]. Though lately, XIV has gotten it less due to it being much more story intensive and more forgiving to newer players than it's predecessor.

* A good number of fans refuse to acknowledge every ''Franchise/SilentHill'' sequel after ''Silent Hill 4: The Room'' on the grounds that they were not done by the original team at Team Silent, some going so far as to label them as licensed fan-games because of it. ''Silent Hill: Shattered Memories'' averts this, even while the matter of ''Origins'' and ''Homecoming'' races towards BrokenBase territory. ''Shattered Memories'' is a "re-imagining" of the first ''Silent Hill'' - it's different from the first four in a completely deliberate way. Most people who worry about canon are content to just label it a [[GaidenGame side-story]] or alternative universe (as a sequel to ''Silent Hill'''s bad ending).
** Then there's the overwhelmingly negative reception that ''Silent Hill: Book of Memories'' after the trailer was unveiled.
