You want same games, check out madden! Those games have the same flaws every single game. At least assassin's creed had some fixes, the only thing madden changes up is the rosters, but i think that's cause they have to :P
I think for like 4 or 5 straight years, you could direct snap to the wide receiver. It pisses me off madden has the contract for those games and people still buy it year after year...it was my least favorite football game and of course it was the one to buy the contract.
CoD seems to be the same game every year. yearly games seem to blow. Crash Bandicoot (always a perfect example of good games :D) would change gameplay, fix gameplay every release. Add new things, etc.
The tony hawk franchise rocked it for a while until thug 2 came out and it was pretty much the same game. I thought proving ground finally changed it up and made things better but then, you know, they made a game that sold like 5000 copies.
