Top 5 Worst Game Sequels of All Time

When a new game comes out that thrills and excites the focus immediately shifts to a sequel. Some game sequels are rushed, unplayable disasters which are a blatant attempt on cashing in off the reputation of the original.

I really liked super mario 2...

and I don't know why Zelda II isn't on there...

TedCruzsTaint1744d ago

Zelda II wasn't a bad game, but I would definitely call it the weakest of the series.

Bro those Phillips Cdi games. Never forget!

Maio was still finding it's image and gameplay back then. I agree, I loved super Mario 2.

What a lot of people, probably even this author, don't realize is that this was doki doki panic that wasn't even originally supposed to come out on NES, but on famicom system.

Lol, Mario 2 is actually a damn good game, no matter if it was a reskin of another game. It's actually my favorite Mario game of the NES / SNES eras.

Not to mention that the author posted a Mario 1 picture, not a Mario 2 pic... and that "boss" that throws eggs isn't a boss, and it's Birdo (fun fact: it was incorrectly called "Ostro" in the end credits, if I remember correctly).

Anyway, the game it was "ripped off" from (Doki Doki Panic) was a Miyamoto game, and he had much more input on that game than the actual Mario 2 released in Japan (which we came to know as The Lost Levels). Because of this, it could be argued that the "rip off" was more of a Mario game than the true sequel. :P

Heck Doki Doki was actually started as a prototype of mario bros 2 and was canceled until they were instructed to use the characters they had in doki doki. So like you said it's more of a sequel. Mario Lost Levels was just an expansion pack imo.

Dasteru1744d ago

The Doki Doki version of Mario bros 2 is more a pre-release spin off, Lost levels is the true Mario bros 2 as was released in Japan. They only released the Doki doki one in NA because they thought Americans couldn't handle the difficulty of the actual Mario bros 2.

yeah I cant believe people can make a living writing that dribble. And how could he be a Xbox fan who bought a ps2 for 'devil my cry' when that game was released in Aug 2001 and Xbox came out in Nov 2001? I smell bull shit.

Krimmson1744d ago

Not only that but also shows bad grammar.
"Duke Nukem should of made the list too."

Seriously, why do so many people mix should have and should of? Should of doesn't even make any sense.

SuicidalTendencies1744d ago

Agreed. The most hilarious part of the garbage article is that he considers Super Mario 2 a bad sequel only because he was a wuss and afraid of the game when he was younger. I played it when I was kid and loved it.

God Hudson Soft brought out some dire games for the 360 early on. Bomberman Act Zero being the worst of the bunch.

TedCruzsTaint1744d ago

Act Zero is an abomination to gaming.

LKHGFDSA1744d ago

leave it to an Xbox exclusive to be an abomination to gaming.

TedCruzsTaint1744d ago

There are a many, many terrible games and Microsoft has nothing to do with it.

CrossingEden1744d ago

ffs, Some people just can't go two minutes without making a fanboy remark. -_-
