Take your own advice. Re-read the post you responded to, which was about the freedom to move onto other things after having delivered a hit and getting out from under an already viable franchise, which your post misses the point entirely just to say Sony makes sequels. Well, yeah, there's nothing wrong with sequels. But Microsoft has this giant blemish on their track record known as Bungie, a studio which, after delivering multiple million selling games... wanted to branch out and deliver something new, and Microsoft's response to them was; paraphrasing, "naw, keep going with the halo thing dawg." Microsoft hasn't had a hit like Halo since, and we don't know exactly how they'd treat a studio that might deliver on that scale again. That's the point you're missing.If you want to play obtuse and miss the overall point I responded to with that comment, specifically regarding the sequel repetition, then by all means do so.
The reality of those franchises is that they exist in multiple iterations. Those are facts.
Don’t let facts bother you so much.
