Five Games That Need Sequels

TGC writes: Sequels are a common practise in the gaming world – from yearly ventures in the Fifa and Call of Duty, to highly anticipated sequels that are drawn out over six or seven years. For example, the up and coming release of Hitman: Absolution or the even-longer-in-the-making GTA series.

However you look at these types of sequels – more often than not they bring something new and refreshing to the table that differs from the original, making them a standalone game in their own right (besides Call of Duty) and in this regard, here are five instances of games that certainly deserve, but have yet to merit second outings. (Alan Wake, Bulletstorm, Heavy Rain , PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Both a Dead Island sequel and Alan Wake sequel are already in the works so why are they both in this article????

Writing an article to write. If Prey2 weren't in limbo there'd only be two valid titles.

@shadowwizard:
Would like to see something with more replayability. Playthroughs where the prime suspect is different.

Heavy Rain, seriously?
The origami killer might be gone, but the rain still lurks in the shadows "DUMDUMDUUUUUUUUM" And it'll get ya >:D

lol jk But seriously, a sequel wouldn't work. Even with a different set of characters. Would just seem Idk weird. I'd much rather wait for Beyond: Two souls :b

Instead of a HR2, i hope Cage considers making Kara into a game.

I thought Heavy Rain was a sequel! Indigo Prophecy led to Heavy Rain.

I really want to see an Alan Wake 2 as this has been one of my games of this gen. a Bullet storm 2 would be really good but ide like to see if have a MP mode in it to.
I don't think we will see a Heavy Rain 2 not because it was a bad game as it was far form that but I think it could be one of them games that is a one off game.
I could not get into Dead Island but I know a lot of people who like it and would love to see a 2nd game.
As for Prey ive never played it but sounds interesting so I might have a look at picking a copy up.

prince of persia 08, come on ubisoft how are you just gonna leave that cliffhanger ending and give us DLC with another cliffhanger ending, have a trophy/achievement that says to be continued and not make a sequel, i love AC but damn prince of persia fans want a sequel too.

5. Bullet Storm probably won't have a sequel
4. 2nd Dead Island game has already has a title
3. If you knew anything about David Cage....he doesn't make sequels. Google 'Beyond: Two Souls'
2... I think I went far enough. The last 2 are being made already. Is the 'author' not a gamer? *gasp

Why does heavy rain need a sequel they are making a game that looks like a big improvement. It ain't like the game had rememberable characters and a story that needs to continue.

Rumble Roses, Shadows Of The Damned, Killer 7 and Manhunt to name a few...
