        Ok off topic but who else thinks Metroid Fusion is the best Metroid game and/or the best Gameboy advance game

                                                                        PvZ will never die and I am glad it will never because it was, and still is, my favorite mobile game franchise. Better than Angry Birds.

There were 200 characters and 120 levels over the series and many more extra modes. That will last forever for me, it doesn't need to go on and on. We actually got too much of certain things, I mean, of course it got oversaturated. No, I'm sad because they didn't let it finish correctly. The games ended up becoming more of a mess storywise (yes, they had legitimate story) and clearly had more and more content cut or rushed and the series as a whole kept getting so much less support and more greedy executive meddling. While still awesome the series could have been so, so much more had it been fully planned out and properly concluded. That doesn't happen under Activision though.
