It might be dracaena (corn plant) , some of the time you can cut the bad looking tops off and root in water , and the main plant will send out new growth too.

Just to add some more the big leafy one is dracaena deremensis var warneckii, it is the most desirable of the corn plants and if I remember right one of the best air scrubbers for healthy indoor air.

I have propagated several generations by cuttings, you can even leave a rooted trunk without leaves and it will bounce back. Another amazing thing is how long the cutting will survive without water, cut off a crowing tip and plant directly in soil it will strike roots and you will have another plant soon enough.

Truly one of my favorites. One tip is the leaves turn brown and crack like that because the plant doesn't handle contact well so don't keep them in high traffic areas or even where a powerful indoor vent might push them around. They are also an under-story plant so indirect bright light is best but they can even do well in indirect low light.

Hope this helps,
Ian
