* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher2AssassinsOfKings''. Many consider it an EvenBetterSequel with top-tier production values, and an extensively player reactive, complex, mature, and adult storyline that elevates it above many CRPGs. Others however consider it something of a SophomoreSlump: with consolized design choices; an unbalanced combat system; and complain that it replaces much of what made the first game charming and unique with overly convoluted political intrigue that comes off more like a GameOfThrones knockoff.

** Every game since ''Wario Land 4'' is even more contested. Which one is the 'true' sequel to the previous games? Well, youíll get a lot of different answers to that question, as each has different gameplay mechanics and game design. Do you prefer the 3D beat-em-up/platformer hybrid approach of ''VideoGame/WarioWorld'', the stylus-oriented gameplay of ''VideoGame/WarioMasterOfDisguise'', or the more return-to-form 2D platforming of ''VideoGame/WarioLandShakeIt''? As for whether any of them are even good games... thatís pretty debated as well. ''Wario Land: Shake It!'' gets flak for being too much like ''Wario Land 4'' except with less new ideas in it, ''Wario World'' has a very mixed critical reception in general, and ''Wario: Master of Disguise'' is seen by quite a few fans and critics as [[{{Sequelitis}} just plain bad]]. You can see this by the Metacritic scores of each game: 88 for ''Wario Land 4'', 71 for ''Wario World'', 60 for ''Wario: Master of Disguise'', and 78 for ''Wario Land: Shake It!''.

* Music/{{NWA}}'s final album, 'Niggaz4life' is this. Depending on who you ask, it is either an awesome, fun gangsta rap classic with far better production value than ''Straight Outta Compton'' and proof that the group did just fine without Ice Cube, or a huge step down from *Straight Outta Compton* that is hurt by Ice Cube's absence, and a Flanderization of the band that tries way too hard to be shocking for its own good.

** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' is a perfect example of this. The action was expanded upon, with new abilities like "merging" with teammates, and just an overall greater focus on the action. On the other hand, the platforming elements and secret out-of-the-way treasure chests were greatly reduced. Some say ''Kingdom Hearts II'' is a great sequel and use the action, characters and story as their main argument, others argue that part of what made [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI the first game]] so great is gone, complaining about the less exploratory level design and accusing the game of having a weaker and [[KudzuPlot more complicated story]] in which the characters they love just don't seem to [[NotAsYouKnowThem be themselves.]]

Sometimes, the company will try to fix things with the next installment in the series, only to make more friends and more enemies. This may lead to an {{unpleasable fanbase}}.

** ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' is this for leaving the ''VideoGame/SystemShock2'' and ''VideoGame/BioShock'' roots, tossing away the ammo scavenging, enemy research, hacking, different ammo types for a lot more combat. Depending on who you ask, it's either [[SoCoolItsAwesome the best game in the series]], or [[{{Sequelitis}} the]] [[HypeBacklash worst]].

* As far as the main ''VideoGame/{{Darius}}'' series goes, ''Dariusburst'' is this to ''G-Darius''. Fans either like it for being less punishing on life losses and encouraging aggressive play with its Burst weapons, others feel that it took a serious hit in the level and boss design departments.
