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

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?
