We have looked through the pages of Gaming History to decide on the sequels we most felt were disappointing, unnecessary , or just plain bad. Here’s Our list for Top 5 Worst Video Game Sequels
Crackdown 2 should be on that list.
Agreed. Crackdown 2 was in development hell and MS were sick of the waste of money and released one of the most disappointing sequels ever. Gears 2? Not a chance. Campaign had epic set-pieces, although the online launched broken, so I'd say maybe to that one (it was fixed.....later). I would say DMC 2, and The Darkness 2. Don't get me wrong, TD2 was a really good game, but compared to the first, it was a completely different experience. Disappointed at the end of it. Also, Bioshock 2.
I had fun with Crackdown 2. I really hope they crank out another in the series, because the core gameplay is fun as all hell.
"The survival genre is being expanded massively and times are changing, and Resident Evil can’t keep up with the change." Expanded? No, more like lacking Resident Evil 6 (and even RE5) is a perfect example of how going after new fans instead of focusing on the ones you already have, kills a franchise. Lack of horror, an even worse story, pointless characters, lack of fan fan favorites, too many differnt stories going on, too much action etc If anything this franchise needed a reboot more then DMC. I don't see why they don't just start from the mansion incident again, change some things around to effect future events and by the time you get up to the 4th game the time line will be altered so much they will tell totaly differnt stories but with the characters we love. For starters this idea could easily get rid of the plagas or even bring Raccoon City back. I mean the first game will even seem like a remake in some ways. As for Banjo....hey theres still hope, they could write off that game as a non cannon spin off and do Banjo Threeie
YES, YES YES!! resident Evils 5 and 6 just need to be wiped off the map.
@ AngelicIceDiamond .Whoa someone is touchy.So ready to attack that you mentioned stuff that aren't even sequels.And Sorcery, PSAS and Wonder Book are far from the worst anything.
Wonder Book isn't even a game on it's own lol, how low could he get?
Something tells me this list was made for hits barring Duke nukem, all of them were atleast decent and there are far worse sequel. What about sonic 06, DMC 2, final fantasy 14, Golden axe 360/ps3 and bomber man on 360?
Duke Nukem is shitty.
Super Mario Bros. 2 Stunk compared to 3 and SNES' "Super Mario World."
i want another Duke Nukem game ,i really enjoy Duke Nukem Forever
resident evil 6 was an awesome game I am the only one who seemed to enjoy it! and wtf is dragon age II doing on there.. granted it was not as good as the original but it was still decent this list is garbage.. games that should have been on there Assassins Creed 3(gameplay was very broken) Prince of Persia (latest ps3 version sucked) Ninja Gaiden 3 (not Razors Edge) Fist of the North Star Kens Rage 2 and many others
Worst sequels are 1.Resistance 2 2.Resistance 3
MY opinion: Test Drive:Unlimited 2. Dragon Age:2. Grand Theft Auto:IV.
Solid list, agree with all of them.
