* ''VideoGame/PacMan'' is believed to be in one by a lot of his hardcore fans, especially those of the "adventure" titles such as the ''VideoGame/PacManWorld'' games. Fans of his adventure and higher budget games believe it to have started with ''World 3'' 's lukewarm reception and entered full-force with the release of ''WesternAnimation/PacManAndTheGhostlyAdventures'' and it's tie-in games. Some even go as far as to believe the IP and mascot should just be dropped as he is too outdated, claiming the only good game he had was his original arcade outing. Needless to say, saying this around some fans [[FandomBerserkButton doesn't go down well.]]

* The ''Franchise/MegaMan'' franchise became notorious for this during TheNewTens, after the departure of series co-creator Keiji Inafune seemingly left Capcom with no clear idea of where to take the franchise. Between ''Mega Man 10'' in 2010 and the announcement of ''Mega Man 11'' in late 2017, the series mostly lay dormant aside from [[ComicBook/MegaMan the Archie comics]], a handful of cameos, some figurines, and appearances in crossover fighting games, with the only game releases during this period being several mobile phone ports [[PortingDisaster of dubious quality]] and the [[AllegedlyFreeGame allegedly free]] "social RPG" ''VideoGame/RockmanXover'', which was utterly savaged by critics and fans alike and is widely agreed to be the nadir of the franchise as a whole.

** The second is the 3DS / Wii U era. Following the highly successful Wii / DS era which had hits such as ''VideoGame/MarioKartDS'', ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', ''VideoGame/MarioKartWii'', and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'', this era was plagued with accusations that the series was being streamlined to become more like the ''New Super Mario Bros'' games, themselves controversial due to being [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks unoriginal.]] The {{Role Playing Game}}s in particular are hit by this as are some of the sports titles (namely ''Mario Tennis Ultra Smash''). However, there are several people who point to games like ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'', ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' as proof the series still has life, However with the Nintendo Switch's stellar launch and the successes of ''VideoGame/MarioPlusRabbidsKingdomBattle'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'', the series appears to be exiting this particularly notable Dork Age. Both games were praised for their creativity and for moving things forward.
