5 Best & 5 Worst Video Game Sequels Of This Generation

WC writes: Sequels in the games industry get a harsh rap, with players calling for new IP’s like a hoard of insatiable children, who’s attention span is comparable to that of a Ninja Gaiden quick-time event.

It’s a shame too, because often developers need that second game to truly hone and fulfill their original vision, although this is not always the case. It’s not unheard of for big name sequels to fall short of expectations, even if when held up on their own they offer a decent experience. That got us thinking, what are the best and worse sequels of this current generation?

For this list, three is definitely not the magic number, as all titles must be the second entry in their respective series. (BioShock 2, Crysis 2, Mass Effect 2, PC, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Xbox 360)

Pretty good list, I agree with the most of them.

Likewise, I would have added a few more. But good list over all
