The 10 Worst Video Game Sequels

In today's gaming industry, just about any successfully and financially successful game means a sequel isn't too far behind. While that decision makes sense from a business point of view, it also means developers are expected to replicate success, and in some cases, catch lightning in a bottle yet again.

That's easier said than done, as can be seen by any number of sequels released year-to-year. Whether due to rushed development, a shift in direction, publisher pressure, or just failure to connect with gamers a second time, many sequels come up short.

We've looked through the pixels of gaming history to focus on the sequels we most felt were disappointing, misguided, or just plain broken.

Some legit picks. Silent Hill is lucky it didn't make the list. Even the HD Collection was fubar

Good 'safe' list. Should have included Final Fantasy XIII.

Absolutely agree. FF13 was the most disappointing game I've played this gen. Non-existent story, terrible characters, unimaginative universe, generic enemy designs.
It has none of the charm or quality that made all the other FF games so great like FF1,3,4,6,7,9. It almost felt like I was watching a really boring CGI anime with a ridiculous plot added with extremely confusing terminology with no proper explanation (falcie, pulse l'cie, pulse'cie).
And don't even get me started on Vanielle. i stopped playing the game in general because I could not stand that character. Absolutely pathetic.

Agreed, final fantasy 13 to this day pisses me off with it's mere existance, and this is as someone who ranks final fantasy 4 through 10 as some of his favourite games ever.

you have no clue do you???
ff13 isnt a sequel,ff13 is a new ff game with new story and combat. Even tho it is number 13 people doesnt say that ff13 is a sequel to ff12.if you really want to put up a ff game you should have mentioned ff13-2. now 13-2 sucks more then any other ff game ive played.

Oh god, RE6, horrible, very horrible game, each time i remember it, i wish i had thrown my 60$ in the air instead of buying that game.

Y_51501187d ago

is it worth 20 bucks? I can get it around that price.

Minato-Namikaze1188d ago

No FFXIII? or FFXIII-2? lol

VersaVulture891187d ago

I'll be the minority and say I actually enjoyed Final Fantasy XIII for what it was, but XIII-2 was one of the worst experiences of my life.

HonestDragon1188d ago

Very good list. Had me laughing a couple times given the jabs that are taken at some of these bad sequels.
