Yearly Sequels: The Death of a Gaming Series and Gaming as an Art Form

Adam Darko:"Don't let the title fool you. Sequels to video games are not inherently bad. In fact, some of the best games ever made are sequels. Skyrim is the fifth game in the Elder Scrolls series, and many would argue it's the best thus far-- even better than Morrowind! Silent Hill 2 is clearly the best game in the Silent Hill franchise, and one of the best games ever made overall. The same applies to Resident Evil 4, Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and many more. A well-made sequel, one that is wanted by both the publisher and the consumer, is always appreciated. It's really easy to tell when a studio truly put their all in a game and made it to be entertaining for the gamers. When playing a game, one can tell when it's a game that was made with the customer's enjoyment in mind, or rather something that was hastily slapdashed together for the sole purpose of selling copies and making money and nothing else in mind. Those are the types of games and sequels that really get my goat."
