5 video games that desperately need sequels

Darryl Linington from ITF Gaming writes: Over the past few days, I have been running through my collection in order to experience some great classics that I have either finished 5x, or didn’t finish at all. Among the masses, I found 5 video games that desperately need sequels … Whether created for this gen or the next-gen, these games really deserve some form of a sequel. (L.A. Noire, PC, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Xbox 360)

Red Dead Redemption - No doubt has a next gen sequel in development.

Rage - Sold very badly so i doubt it will get a sequel.

LA Noire - The developers (Team Bondi) have gone bankrupt.

from wiki so i dont know if it's 100% accurate

"After liquidation, Team Bondi's assets and most of its staff went to Kennedy-Miller Mitchell. Some of the former employees have gone to work in different Rockstar studios. Rockstar retained the L.A. Noire intellectual property."

I don't think we'll see a new LA Noire for another while but later down the road a sequel will surely surface.

I relly loved Rage. Did not get all the hate for it. It looked amazing and was a blast to play imo.

Apart from a weak ending it was a fantastic game! I liked that id leaned slightly in a Bioshock direction with an in game currency and the ability to sell loot and the simple crafting system, it added a hint of RPG to the game.

The card game in the bar was also good fun and I liked that you could improve your deck by hunting for new cards out in the game world.

I really hope we get a sequel.

A new Red Dead Redemption sequel of some kind is a must IMO. It has been 3 years and 7 months since it's release.

If not, then the team behind RDR has to be working on something, I just wait and wait to hear something, hopefully "finally" something will come up about what "Team RDR" are up to.

Love to see what Oddworld inhabitants are up to new IP wise. Beyond good and evil 2 should be coming,at least last I heard. Dark cloud and legends of dragoon series would be great to see again.

I liked Rage. There was something unique about that game that set it apart. The racing mechanic was fun and when the graphical textures worked properly it was a pretty game. The ideal behind Rage was solid too, shame how it all turned out.

If the WiiU had a new StarFox and a new Zelda or Metroid at launch things could have been VERY different. I'm sure there is a very good business reason why they save the big franchise releases for after a console launch but I don't get it personally.

Imagine if they timed the new console launch with all the major franchises from day 1, Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Stafox, F-Zero, Pilotwings and throw in a couple of party games to keep everyone else happy too.

1. Metroid Prime

2. Half-Life

3. Red Steel II (I'm probably the only one though :D )

4. Freespace

5. and I agree about RDR, but I still haven't played the first one :D What they should do is release RDR2 on PC with the first one together as a bundle.

Red Dead Redemption also needs a PC release desperately.
It's a horrible feeling missing out on the game. Thank fuck I managed to play through it before my PS3 went YLOD.
