Five Games that Honestly didn't Need Sequels

GameDynamo - "There's a great many reasons why a developer shouldn't put together a sequel to a title. Maybe the narrative of the original was self-contained enough that it could easily stand on its own (and future installments simply cheapen the property). Perhaps the sequel they did come out with is, compared to the original, utter garbage. Or maybe the original game was just downright terrible to begin with." (50 Cent: Bulletproof, Chrono Trigger , Fable, NiGHTS Into Dreams, Nights: Journey of Dreams, Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PS3, Two Worlds, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

not sure Chrono Cross is a true sequel as much as its a legacy title. pretty sure a true Chrono Trigger sequel in HD would be welcomed by the masses, if given the proper attention of course

I'm playing through Chrono Cross for the first time and that is what I was thinking: "I hope there is a sequel to this."

Not sure why some people complain about Chrono Cross.
It wasn't meant to be a direct sequel to Chrono Trigger. It's not called "Chrono Trigger 2".

Also, it was a very awesome game. I hope they make another Chrono game soon.

de Blob 2. It just didn't stand a chance in 2011. And it happened to correct a lot of the flaws of the first Blob.

I'm gonna say KotOR. First one ended perfectly with no real questions. Sequel comes along (a sequel I did enjoy) and it ends with a cliffhanger that wasn't resolved until a book was released around tOR's release yrs later, and it kinda sucked.
