9 Video Game Sequels So Bad They Killed The Series

Alongside death, taxes and terrible Adam Sandler movies, video game sequels are just another crushing inevitability of life.

What about Turok (2008)? Talk about horrible, god awful game. I actually finished it, but I have no idea how.

The original Turok games for the N64 were awesome for their time.

I remember following the development of that game intently. What a shame. It could have been great.

Yeah, I thought the reveal was pretty good, looked nice... then you play the thing... and it was some of the worse game design decisions I have encountered in a AA-AAA title. Propaganda Games was shutdown by Disney while making Turok 2... I say good. What a horrible game.

I kind thought the development team lied about what you would do in the game with the dinosaurs and their AI. LOL It was bad and them stressing fun and cool AI was a joke.
