Eleven Most Wanted Sequels - TheReviewDudes

TheReviewDudes write "I think us gamers are getting sick of the same sequels every year. A new Call of Duty and 4 new Guitar Hero's is a given for every year of gaming. Even a lot of mediocre games like Kane and Lynch, and Army of Two Get sequels. So why do some of the greatest games ever made not get sequels?" (Culture)

"I think i'm going to boycott any Sega title until Shenmue 3 is released."

Already been doing that for years now m8, sounds a bit harsh i know but they wont even give us a straight answer & we have been waiting since the end of 2001.

I want KOTOR 3, but a sequel to the obscure survival-horror game 'Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth' would make me very happy. If you haven't played that game, you can't legitimately call yourself a horror game fan :D

I remember that one. Great game. Great atmosphere. Great immersion. One of the more engrossing FPS games I've played.

When the studio shut down I heard they had to cancel a bunch of spin-offs and sequels. :/
BYE  +   1939d ago
That's contra-productive. If you want a new Shenmue, buy ALL Sega titles. Shenmue is one of the most expensive games to make, they need the money.

**** you, Sega.
badz149  +   1939d ago
err...no love for Kingdom Hearts 3?
that's my most anticipated sequel EVER!
Marcello  +   1939d ago
Yes i know its not helping but without a straight answer i am just not helping out & besides that SEGA just havent produced anything worth buying in years.
hay  +   1940d ago
I still have my DC with both Shenmues. Those are one of the best games ever. I felt overwhelming emptiness when I finished Shenmue 2 and realized there won't be a sequel. It's that good.
thesithfreak  +   1940d ago
shenmue remains in my top 3 all time favorite games. its pure brilliance and way under appreciated

I really want an Elder Scrolls V
Tony P  +   1939d ago
Shenmue 3 and KotOR 3 at the top spots. Pretty much sums up my most wanted.

I do not however consider ME some "pale shadow" of it. Honestly, I wasn't too hot on the idea of Bio ditching SW to make up their own game, but ME came off a lot better than I expected.

TOR on the other hand... well, let's just see.

Oh yes, and I want that TES V too. Single-player please. Not MMO.

I thought I was the only one. Love this game. A current gen version would be great. Especially now with games like Uncharted having honed 3rdPS's to perfection. Just give him some powers now.
teenieboober  +   1939d ago
I don't know why people pretend like Shenmu was OMGWTF BEST GAME EVAR.

It was a very mediocre RPG disguised beneath hours of terrible voice acting and completely pointless mini-games.
thesithfreak  +   1939d ago
the story made it special and the environment. the voice acting was off but somehow it wasnt bothersome most of the time. sometimes it was just funny. but the combat felt great and most of the time you didnt have to do the mini games.
Redempteur  +   1939d ago
oh one that missed how great shenmue felt at the time .. a good story with a good battle system ..and one game that made QTE popular ..that how huge shenmue is ...
Tony P  +   1939d ago
@teenie: What are you, kidding? It was one of the most ambitious titles of its day.

You take it for granted now with all these open world games, but there was nothing even remotely like it at the time. The game was anything but standard fare. The full 3D environments... faithfully recreating a living, breathing town in Japan; capturing the zeitgeist of that generation; using REAL weather patterns gathered from historical data; Yu Suzuki's arcade classics right there in the game; AND online connectivity.

But no, it was just a QTE fest. /s
DigitalAnalog  +   1939d ago
Go for Shenmue II dreamcast version. The japanese voices are more lively than the english dubs (by far one of the worst dubs in history).

Screw that guy.
KOTOR 2 was better. But seriously, give me KOTOR 3. TOR is a huge slap in the face, considering they can't even give us a decent art style that fits with the universe. Let Obsidian make it and give them the damn development time they need.

KOTOR 2 was considerably longer, but I don't think it was better. The 'twist' in the first one was too brilliant.
thesithfreak  +   1939d ago
giving kotor to obsidian is like giving call of duty to treyarch.
smilydude13  +   1939d ago
Giving KOTOR to obsidian is in no way like giving COD to Treyarch and you're a complete tit for even suggesting that. People have always exaggerated about the extent of KOTOR 2's flaws and blame them completely on Obsidian. Considering Obsidian was being rushed out the wazoo by Lucasarts to deliver by Christmas I think they did an admirable job. Obsidian has the talent, and they have the potential. Remember, they're made up mostly from the development team that did the first 2 Fallouts and Planescape torment.

And to 8.1 I was mostly joking about the better part, however I did like the overall plot, darkness, and characters over KOTOR. That's why it's my favorite of the two.
Arizona Tea  +   1939d ago
Jade Empire 2 and Psi-ops please
Redempteur  +   1939d ago
WHo the hell is waiting for sudeki 2 ....??

i mean ..seriously ??
Tony P  +   1939d ago
Wouldn't mind. It wasn't that bad a game. But tbh, the most I remember about it are well-rendered butts.
thesithfreak  +   1939d ago
lol they used that to sucker people in to buying it, then hammered them with all the RPG
ReBurn  +   1939d ago
As far as Shenmue goes I'd be happy with a book or something that let me know how the story ended. I'd like a game, but just tell me what happens with Ryu and Lan Di.
smoov360  +   1939d ago
I'm waiting for Sudeki 2
You fail for not understanding the awesomeness of that game. It managed to combine elements of a fps, third person hack and slash, and the over the top rpg menu casted move similar to final fantasy except you were free to move during combat. The story wasn't amazing but it was decent and I think a newly fashioned sequel on a next gen system would truly be awesome if enough people got their heads out of something like MW2's ass to enjoy something that didn't come packaged with a big ass can of hype.
spunnups  +   1939d ago
Demons Souls, Twisted Metal Black, War of the Monsters, Waverace/Jet Moto, Jumping Flash, Fighting Force, Medievel, Hydro Thunder....Some may have sequels but i'd like to see these franchises reborn

Anyone remember that platforming side scroller on PS1 where u were a spider equipped with a flamethrower and land mines? That game rocked
-MD-  +   1939d ago
Nice list! Twisted Metal, Jet Moto, Jumping Flash and Fighting Force all deserve new entries.

I would also like Loaded/Re-Loaded to get a next gen overhaul, South Park FPS to make a comeback and Resident Evil to go back to being scary.
thesithfreak  +   1939d ago
definitely Twisted Metal, wasnt the last one a ps2 launch game? thats a long time man. I think David Jaffe is working on that though, hopefully
IaMs12  +   1939d ago
Oh man i remember that spider game, wow talk about memories. I only played the demo but still. That and the pig game if that rings a bell as well as the Blasterman i think it was where your a red superhero who shoots human sized Ants lol and Pitball!
TheDeadMetalhead  +   1939d ago
You DO realize that South Park on N64 was just Turok with mutant turkeys, right?

Jet Moto 4
Eternal Darkness 2 (I don't think it got a sequel)
Blastworks 2
A Destruction Derby that doesn't suck (Arena and RAW gtfo)
Quantum Redshift 2
2D Metroid
OddWorld 5
Legend of Dragoon 2
Soul Reaver 3
Phoenix Wright 4

What a crap list...

I'll agree with Warcraft 4 though.

Thanks to SEGA, there would always be a void in my gaming heart.

Hitman 5....make it happen god damn it.
thesithfreak  +   1939d ago
weird to think there was already a hitman this generation. seems so long ago. seems last gen lol
Eiffel  +   1939d ago
That Hitman Blood Money Xbox 360 port was a port from last generation.

So, yeah since last generation lol.
TheBand1t  +   1939d ago
Where's Freedom Fighters 2?
The_Firestarter  +   1939d ago
I've been dying for an official announcement of ZOE3 for years. If there's any ONE game I would pay $100+ for would be a ZOE sequel.
N4Garbage  +   1939d ago
Shenmue 3 I WANT NOW!!!

I'd actually like another Intelligent Cube.

How many people remember that game?
Fade_Walker  +   1939d ago
Jade Empire 2 and Star Wars: KOTOR III are at the stop of my list.
Cajun Chicken  +   1939d ago
Still awaiting for MDK3...And a new Devil Dice.

I agree with prettty much every game on this list
Especially kotor 3. Kotor 2 added a lot of interesting plot lines to the story, but never really solved any of them. We need some real closure. WE NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS TO REVAN AND THE EXILE!!!!
RockmanII7  +   1939d ago
Replace Naughty Dog/Crash game with an Insomniac/Spyro game
TheDeadMetalhead  +   1939d ago
Or, you know, both.
hazardman  +   1939d ago
I would love to see these games remade or new next gen sequels-
Killer Instinct
Beyond Good and Evil
Earthworm Jim
Double Dragon
High Heat Baseball
Jade Empire 2
Perfect Dark
There's just to many games to list..
MarkusMcNugen  +   1939d ago
I think some games are best left as classics and just overall amazing games. Who here wouldnt be pissed if they made a re-make/sequal to one of these legendary games and they screwed it all up?
Relientk77  +   1938d ago
- Grandia 4
- A new Legend of Dragoon, Rogue Galaxy, Tactics Ogre, Brave Fencer Musashi

I def agree with

6: A Crash Bandicoot game developed by Naughty Dog
