but it would actually be a sequel and not a repackage game or expansion sold as a full game lol!.

one of the main reasons i wont get mw2,l4d2 or odst is cuz its not that much different from the original.... and i love halo 123, modern warfare... l4d1 was boring after a week though

Hmm interesting read, some points make sense.

My only problem is that the guy who wrote the article doesn't realise that most games are only published dependant on their possible success as a series... So the acknowledgement of this in-game isn't bad at all, since it means we know there's more of what we liked to come...

Might as well say TV shows shouldn't have cliff-hangers... :P

Not necessarily. Uncharted, for example, was never initially penned as a series per se. If it'd flopped, there wouldn't have been a sequel. I'm the original author of the article, by the way. Plus it was more a reason for me to have a moan about the typical gimmicks some developers use, I'm sure there are other ways other than insanely obvious cliffhangers. For example, Bioshock. The tone and setting and such is very unique, whilst the storyline doesn't necessarily continue into 2, given that the ending of one was pretty definitive, sets up for a sequel. There are so many ideas and concepts surrounding rapture, that they could easily make several more games without treading new ground. Hell, I regard as a story within itself.

Makes sense. Devs should wait at least 2-3 years before making a sequel to a game but are sports games an exception? I would like to think so.

Making good sequels if it is only made for the ps3. Other then they are fail.
