Which Video Game, That Never Got a Sequel, Would You Like to See a Sequel to?

Video game history is filled with absolutely great titles that, for some reason or another, just didn’t sell well enough to warrant a sequel, despite the dedicated fan base screaming for one. Thanks to reader Bayouboyz, we’ll be focusing on some of those games in this week’s Ask PSLS: “Which Video Game, That Never Got a Sequel, Would You Like to See a Sequel to?”
-PSLS (Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Heavenly Sword 2, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Psi Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

i really liked that game. I should have received a sequel.

A more recent game that deserves a sequel (or continuation if you will)...Dante's Inferno.

Yeah its a clone of GoW but it was still fun to play and there was potential for more hack/slash goodness going through Purgatory and finishing off with Paradise.

@ABizzle. Hellyeah Killer Instinct.
G20WLY  +   997d ago
Yeah, that would be cool.

But I'd love Heavenly Sword 2 - Nariko is an awesome character. All the character were excellent in that game, like Roach, Kai, etc.

As for Psi Ops, I liked but I much prefered Second Sight, which came out at almost the same time and was the exact same premise, but was from the guys behind Timesplitters.

Beyond Good and Evil
knifefight  +   997d ago
You're a good man.
A proper Xenogears sequel would be a Day 1 for me, for sure.
knifefight  +   997d ago
A proper Xenogears sequel would be a Day 1 for me, no questions asked.
I have been wanting a Xenogears sequel for years. A lot of people dont know that Xenogears is Episode 5 out of a 6 episode story with some smaller parts of 2 3 and 4 but we know nothing about episode 1. I desperately want the missing 6th part to be made into a game with heavy parts from episdoe 1.
hellkitten  +   996d ago
Xenogears, for sure!
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   997d ago
Heavenly Sword was the first PS3 game I played. It belonged to a friend of mine but I fell in love with it and went on to complete it before he did.
Best story telling in a game I've ever experienced and I am shocked SONY has not made a sequel. Instead they chose to make more Motorstorm game. . .?!
Even though it ended like it did, I hope to see Nariko and Kai in the next installment of Heavenly Sword very soon.
Hicken  +   997d ago
Yeah, because Ninja Theory and Evolution are the same studio.

Good_Guy_Jamal  +   997d ago
Sony footed the bill for Motorstorm didn't they? They could have easily gotten another studio to make HS2 instead of giving money to Evolution to keep making that doomed racing series.
remanutd55  +   996d ago
Motor storm is one of the most profitable franchises for Sony computer entertainment so I don't understand this comment at all besides evolution studios didn't develop heavenly sword, ninja theory did and they talked about the ps4 at the ps4 revealing event so ...
FAT MAN GO BOOM  +   996d ago
I agree, I loved this game too I like it more than god of war... cause the story telling was so much better...

I do hope they bring this back and the style and story a like...

I choose The Saboteur.

Eternal Darkness.

Take away this man's bubbles or jk jk
Foolsjoker  +   997d ago
Yes, give this man bubbles and agrees or something!
christheredhead  +   997d ago
I was gonna say Eternal Darkness myself. Glad someone got to it before me. That game is great.
mandf  +   997d ago
I would be down with that.
inStereo  +   997d ago
In the original (if I recall) there was lots of drawing out of arcane symbols to invoke magic, attacks, etc. - that would rock on the GamePad.
DaReapa  +   997d ago
I'd give you 6 more "agrees" if I could. I've become fairly grumpy at the mere mention of sequels mostly due to the abuse of sequelitis this gen. But ED is one of a select few slate of games that I would DIE to see a sequel to...that alongside Heavenly Sword.

Silicon Knights had me worked up a few years back with rumors swirling about a "next gen psychological thriller". Then I caught news of SK folding. Bummer.

Hogs of War needs a sequel badly.
BanBrother  +   997d ago
ARCHER: Cry havoc, and let slip the hogs of war.
LANA: Dogs, of war.

Sorry, couldn't resist. I was watching Archer last night ;)
Anyways, mine would be (short list, I could have hundreds lol).

The Darkness 2 (a proper sequel to the first game)
Lost Odyssey 2
Bully 2
Warcraft 4 (Been more than 10 years)
Tenchu (more like the golden days)

A lot of folks may disagree, but I think Dark Sector was pretty good and I rather enjoyed it. I would buy DS2.

PS4 Heavenly Sword

720 Lost Odyssey 2

Wii U Naruto Ninja Taisen Special 2

SN: Platinum should get the license to make God hands 2 and Okami 2.

Square should make The bouncer re-make or another sequel.

It was great. I spent many hours playing that game. Never did finish Shenmue II though.

The Walking Dead's getting a Season Two in 2014 bro
Omni-Tool  +   996d ago
I'm glad someone else wants a sequel to Enslaved. Friggin' loved that game. I was starting to thing I was a minority or something. Maybe I still am but at least I'm not alone now.

One game I would love to see a sequel of or at least a remake would be Out of this World (US)or Another World (UK). I played the SNES port.

I know there is a part 2 which finished the story but it was such a good game. The difficulty is still unrivaled. More so that Demon's Soul IMHO. If they do a sequel or a remake, it needs to keep the extremely frustrating difficulty and deadly environments that was relentless and unforgiving.

Edit: After thinking about it, I would like to see a sequel to Heart of Darkness.

Edit Edit: Primal Rage, Killer Instinct and Rampart

MaleManSam  +   997d ago
Even though it was a spin off game from a big franchise my 2 bucks goes to Dead Space: Extraction, Arguably a better game than the 2 big games. Imo, it ended on such a cliff hanger.

Yea Ready at Dawn, Big Big Studios, Sony Bend developed great PSP games, I think Dead Nation and Fat Princess would be a tremendous success on the psvita.
solidboss07  +   997d ago
Field Commander, it was one of the best PSP games IMO. I would like to see an expanded sequel on PS3 or PS4. Strategy games are a genre that I hope the next Sony console has more of. Even the PS2 had Age of Empires 2.
