10 Gaming Sequels We Wish Didn’t Exist

WC: There are three constants in both the film and gaming industries and that is quality, lack of quality and sequels. Anything will acquire a sequel so long as it shifts enough unit/tickets the first time around irrespective of quality. Whether these things deserve sequels or not is entirely subjective, but they’ll likely get one anyway if someone feels there are a couple of dollars to be made. There are plenty of films and games that justify revisiting in sequel form and then more than a few which just change a detail here or a control option there, repackage themselves and shout about how awesome they are.

But possibly the most annoying combination in the world comes when a great game or film gets a lousy sequel. (Duke Nukem Forever, PC, PS3, Silent Hill: Homecoming, Tomb Raider: Underworld, True Crime NYC, Xbox 360)

Those were all awful, I am waiting for the ff 13-2 should be there. 13-2 was a great game so am glad it is not on there.

I liked resistance 2 and the online features were quite fun like the co-op etc and 60 player online but it was a big change from the first one and I can see it wasn't to everyone's tastes.

R&C all 4 one should be on there.
