COGconnected: We identify video game sequels that are better than their immediate predecessor.
Good list, but i don't know if i'd call them the best sequels.
Street Fighter 2 one of the best sequels totally took gaming by storm. Megaman 2 Double Dragon 2 Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Streets of Rage 2 Uncharted 2 Killzone 2 Virtua Fighter 2 Gran Turismo 2 Resident Evil 2 Dino Crisis 2 NieR Automata Persona 5
While i still enjoyed Resident Evil 4 i still think 2 was the perfect sequel and am so hyped for the Remake, 4 too me just did not feel much at all like a Resident Evil except for having Leon while still a good game don't get me wrong, but i think Resi 7 brought more traditional Resi back compared to 4. I also miss the real Zombies scary slow moving moaning creepy zombies from 1 and 2. While on the subject of better sequels i also think Silent Hill 2 in my eyes the best ever Survival Physiologic horror game ever made deserves a mention.
I need to pick up RE 1 off PSN for the PS3, already have part 2
I tried to play re 1 and it didn't age well at all. Some games are better left remembered.
Agreed. Silent Hill 2 is the best <3
Don't forget God of war 2
Metal Gear Solid 2 or Half-Life 2
I think Half Life 2 was great until the Nova Prospekt level where it just didn't feel like a sci-fi shooter anymore. The remaining levels got really repetitive with all those damn Combine soldiers. Half Life 1 is still in my top 10 games of all time. And MGS2 was fun at the time, but it got really complicated and hard to follow at the end. I still think MGS1 and 3 were the best MGS games.
Pokemon Gold and Silver?
Uncharted 2 and GOW 2 were perfect sequels
Diablo 2, Uncharted 2, TimeSplitters 2, Grandia 2, Dark Cloud 2, Assassin's Creed 2, Borderlands 2, Witcher 3, Dishonored 2, Spyro 2 & 3, Crash Bandicoot 2 & 3, Portal 2, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops 2
I think AssCreed 1 was better even though 2 was the first AC game I played. It had better characters and a better story.
God of War 2 was amazing
Mega Man 2 and Resident Evil 2 are my favorite older sequels whereas GOW2 and Uncharted 2 are my favorite newer sequels!
What Naughty Dog was able to do in 2 years with Uncharted 2 is nothing short of incredible. The difference between it and Uncharted 1 is night and day (uc1 is still great tho)
Marvel vs Capcom 2? (although I prefer the original, 2 was good in its own right) GTA 3? Tekken 3? Capcom vs SNK 2?
I loved MvC on the Dreamcast! I put so much time into it and loved MvC2 as well! I really enjoyed the Dreamcast as a whole! Shenmue, Sonic Adventure, RE Code Veronica, Alone in the Dark, Soul Calibur, MvC, MvC2, Skies of Arcadia, Crazy Taxi, Grandia II, House of the Dead 2, Jet Set Radio, NFL 2K & 2K1were some of my favorites and just typing this brought back so many memories!
Devil may cry 3
I don’t really consider Star Fox 64 a sequel. Isn’t it more of an enhanced remaster of the SNES game? Also, I’d probably put Super Smash Bros Melee up on here, and Super Metroid.
You can't list an all time like that and remain fair my friend. Good games but there are many more.
The list is garbage and only a few game i mean where is half life 2, halo 2, resident evil 2, uncharted 2 just to name a few
The 2012 SSX is definitely not one of the greatest video-game sequels of all time.
Better times... 👇🤧 https://youtu.be/nkPF5UiDi4...
Tomb Raider 2 was amazing. But other than I think for me the 1st or the 3rd chapter in the franchises I like were the best ones. Half Life 1 > Half Life 2 MGS3 Snake Eater > MGS1 Mortal Kombat 3 > Trilogy > MK2 Cool Boarders 3 > 2 > 1 Tony Hawk's Pro Skate 1 > 2 > 3 Soul Reaver 1 > the others Midnight Club 3 > 4 > 2 > 1 Super Mario 3 > World > 1> 2 Destiny 1 > 2 Gears 1 > 2 > 3 Halo 1 > 3 > 2 Killzone 3 > 2 > 1 Borderlands 1 > 2 Doom 3 > 2 > 1 Nina Gaiden 1 > 2 > 3 Splinter Cell 3 > 1 > 2 Hitman 3 > BM > A > 2 but there are some sequels that were amazing compared to the first: Donkey Kong Country 2 > DKC1 > DKC3
GTA Vice City is one of the best sequels I've ever played. Voiced main character, fully licensed soundtrack, motorbikes, helicopters, better graphics, businesses you could take over and they generate money, better story, better everything. And San Andreas took it even further. How the hell could these games NOT be included on anyone's best sequel list? Even if you don't personally like these games, you have to admit, the early GTA sequels vastly improved on the ones that came before.
