Game Sequels We Actually Want

CO writes:

It’s no secret that the video game industry is built upon franchises, and thus, sequels. Every year we see boatloads of new games released, yet it’s far more likely we’ll see sequels to tried-and-true franchises than brand new IPs. It’s the unfortunate rut our industry is stuck in at the moment. However, there are a few sequels that we’d actually welcome with open arms. We might be burnt out on yearly Call of Dutys, but the below titles represent game worlds we’re dying to reenter. (Bulletstorm, Mirror's Edge, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Personally I would love to see sequels to Wipeout HD, Chromehounds, SSX and Twisted Metal.

The latter two games there came out this year so there's no rush for sequels, but it would be nice to see those franchises continue since they're both so good.

Chromehounds was released in the launch window of the Xbox 360 and is easily one of the best online games I've ever played. Unfortunately From Software shut down the servers and seem to be focusing on their Armoured Core games and Souls franchise (Dark/Demons) nowadays.

I'm on the fence with PoP08. I despised the new Prince with a passion. He rubbed me in all the wrong ways and generally I found PoP08 was a cakewalk compared with the original series.

I agree entirely with Mirrors Edge. I don't think it's quite as good as many are making it out to be but it was a unique little gem in a world of modern shooting galleries. I would very much like to see another game of Mirrors Edge's ilk.

I don't think I need to say anything about JaD and BGaE.

Sonic imo is a series that needs to die. Each iteration grows progressively worse and sometimes I wonder if Team Sonic actually plays their product before they ship it out. Oh well, not like my opinion will change anything :/

Something I'd personally like to see is Vanquish 2. All-round fantastic game, if a little short, and another reason why Shinji Mikami is one of the best things ever to happen to gaming

Jet Set Radio Future 2 - or whatever they want to call it.
Release it in episodes like Sam and Max did but it must not be an Xbox exclusive this time as they just don't buy enough copies of it. An Xbox360 and PS3 release is fine but it must be on PS3 because Playstation owners tend to support arty games like that.

Half-Life 3
Mirror's Edge 2
Red Dead Redemption 2
Batman: Arkham (insert location)
Battlefield 2143
Wing Commander VI

I don't want a Mirror's Edge sequel anymore 'cos there is a %99,9 chance that EA would screw with the game, as they are doing with most sequels lately.

Heavenly Sword and Mirror's Edge obviously!
