10 Gaming Sequels We Want To See in Next Generation

WC - With the arrival of the Nintendo Wii U only weeks away, the next gen battle is well and truly about to begin. While Microsoft and Sony haven’t officially announced their next consoles, it’s a guaranteed fact that they are busy working on them. There is nothing like a new console. New tech, more powerful hardware, better graphics and innovative ways to play are always a must for gamers when upgrading to what is usually an expensive investment. But for all the advances in resolution, connectivity and engines, consoles still depend on games the most and with new consoles, come new possibilities. (Next-Gen)

Chrono Trigger/Cross... That's all I want... That's all...

I have been waiting toooooo long for that this.
Wigriff  +   912d ago
Listen... I love Chrono Trigger as much as anyone. I was 13 when it came out, and it blew my mind. It still holds up, and it definitely in my "top 5 games of all time" list. It's a masterpiece; a classic.

That being said: There is no way they could possibly make a sequel that would match it. It would instantly suffer from "Star Wars Episode 1 syndrome," as people's expectations would be entirely too high for it. I honestly think that is why we haven't seen a sequel thus far from Square – they know that there would be a backlash of inevitable disappointment. People hold Chrono Trigger in such high regard that nothing could ever match up to our expectations.

Don't you think it might be better to just leave it be?

As long as they had the original team or at least a good bit of that team (Yes I realize they split up) I wouldn't worry too much. I know nothing will live up to the originals, but it would still be wonderful to see a new iteration of it.

Snookies: Fair enough. I would like to see it as well, but I would not like to see hordes of angry gamers ranting about how awful it is, or how it didn't live up to the hype, or how they should have never made another one, when many of those same people have been praying for a sequel for ages.

Thank you, by the way, for giving an intelligent, thoughtful, mature response, even though you disagree. :)
Snookies12  +   912d ago
You're quite welcome. I just wish that fan remake of Chrono Trigger hadn't been cancelled a while back. It was looking pretty neat based on what they had. I think there's a team working on one in secret, but they didn't want it shut down so they're waiting until its finished to release it.
Wigriff  +   912d ago
That remake did look pretty fucking sweet. Didn't the DS release add some extra stuff, talking about Dalton taking of Guardia using technology developed with a piece of Lavos, prior to the events of Chrono Cross?

attilayavuzer  +   913d ago
Pointless list, most of the games are virtually confirmed for next gen.

All I'm looking for is Bully 2

A sequel to M.A.G. is what I want. M.A.G is the most fun shooter this gen.
Amazingmrbrock  +   912d ago
yeah they could really bring that to perfection in a sequel. The first was a great game with some rough edges. I have this suspicion that planetside 2 is the closest thing to a MAG sequel thats in the works presently though. And thats on pc, but it is published by soe.
StockpileTom  +   912d ago
I would like to see a next gen take on MAG. A RAM increase would be perfect for that type of game. Without Zipper though the future of MAG and SOCOM is uncertain.
TheLyonKing  +   913d ago
Kingdom hearts 3
Tomba 3
Mystical ninja
Jak and Daxter
Tontus  +   913d ago
lol @prototypeknuckles, speaking of Lord Kratos did you know a Ubisoft employee tried to blame God of War for the last Prince of Persia game selling poorly, pathetic excuse or what?!

Anyway, I heard that Ubisoft is planning to reboot Prince of Persia so I wouldn't expect a new PoP game until next-generation.

As for sequels I want; Alan Wake 2, God of War 4, Deus Ex: Human Revolution 2, Jak 4, Heavenly Sword 2, Mass Effect 4... There's more but they're the first that came to mind.

yep, i remember that, what ubisoft needs to do is listen to the fans and actually put effort into a new pop game, forgotten sands was clearly half assed for the movie, and fans want a sequel to pop08, but if they rebot ill be a little bumbed but please keep elements from pop game and ill be okay, and not turn it into that rumored god of war/assassins creed game, with the egyptian guy.
