Games That Deserve A Sequel

Fobia writes: "What makes a great video game? Is it the story? The main character’s personality? The genre of the game? The realism of the graphics? Physics? Action? Emotion?…What? Does a game have to have a combination of two or more to make it considered “Great”? To go along with these questions, does only a great game deserve a sequel? I know that if a game does not cover the cost of production and a little extra, it is highly unlikely that game will be allowed to have a sequel. Or if the company does not think that a sequel will be profitable, then the whole idea of making a sequel will be swept under the rug. That is the way things are; its all about the money. But…what if it wasn’t? What if the final say if a game being created wasn’t if it would sell a million copies? What if it was if the game would have a great story? Changed the way a genre is played? Creates a new genre?" (Folklore, Haze, Heavenly Sword, PS3, The Club)

I can get behind Heavenly Sword. I had a lot of fun with it, but Haze can burn in hell for all I care.

demons souls, heavenly sword

Love those 2, and Folklore. Folklore probably sold so low because no one has been able to find copies of it for a while, all people are buying are used copies. Combat was fun it in, and the story was interesting.

yes i know there are sequals but none of them were true to the first.
dmc2 was just plainly bad
dmc3 was fun but it lacked the fealing of number 1, nothing but heavymetal and cheesy lines.
dmc4 was too fucking colorful, where the hell were the demons, why the hell am i fighting colorful fantasy monsters from fantasy Land.

only reason im still a very big fan of the dmc series is because i still have much love for the first DMC.

i want serious dante with only a little humor(just like the 1st)

i want a mysterious and dark theme/feeling (just like the first)

i want less heavymetal music and more evilchurch orchestrated music(just like the 1st)

i want bloody red evil demons instead of pussy fantasy rainbow monsters (just like the 1st)

Am I really the only one who says Skies of Arcadia 2?

Heavenly Sword FTW!
This is still my favorite PS3 game, I love playing it. If there were any PS3 game that I'd want a sequel to, it would be HS.

That and Shenmue, that game needs closure.

you dont own a ps3 ...
Fobia  +   1632d ago
Haha. Poor Haze.
HolyOrangeCows  +   1632d ago
Haze COULD belong on a "Games that Deserve a Different Developer to Create a Sequel to" list, because it's a flawed game with good concepts. Along with the 3D Gex games.

Give it to Insomniac or Guerilla, they can turn a shitstorm into a goldmine any day of the week

Only if it had to do with polygons. After that they'd be kinda clueless.

I love this type of thing. Heavenly Sword is one of the best games this generation that was missed by so many. They need a sequel on this for sure. I would wet myself if this ever came true.

Ultimate SpiderMan
hamsterfist  +   1632d ago
What about doing Lair correctly?
NecrumSlavery  +   1632d ago
LAIR 2 would probably look better than GOW3, and the controls would be phenomenal. But the hate from the first game would battle it to the ground. LAIR was pretty bad. I don't see to many games getting an award winning sequel from a failing prequel. I don't see people giving the second one a fair shake.

Heavenly Sword definitey deserves a sequel. Too bad Ninja Theory never supported their own masterpiece. They can fall off for all I care.

I would like to give it up for my man Luigi here, A luigi's mansion 2 would make my day

Two Worlds is getting a sequel, I think Lair could get one as well. Heavenly sword needs one along with Demon's Souls.

@ NecrumSlavery
What about Cain and Lynch? That got a sequel. Dont give up! lol
BlackIceJoe  +   1632d ago
Folklore & Heavenly Sword are the only two on the list that need a sequel. I hope Sony will give these games a sequel more so Heavenly Sword but both would be good.
Jon_Mclane  +   1632d ago
Pain 2
Korda  +   1632d ago
beyond good and evil 2 MAKE IT HAPPEN!
zerocool3397  +   1632d ago
its already happening
A LIVING LEGEND  +   1632d ago
This may sound 'stupid' but I have said and heard worse things;Farcry3
I personally enjoyed FC2 alot until it broke down..... and ended up in the heap but alot of good things exist therein....(less the bolt action rifle with the bolt on the wrong side :/
skip2mylou  +   1632d ago
FOLKLORE!!!!!!! :D LOVE THAT GAME!!!!! and Heavenly Swords
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1632d ago
Folklore and Lair for me...
And Heavenly sword. I would say Haze if it wasnt an fps.
Fulensenca  +   1632d ago
Folklore, Demon' s Souls, Heavenly Sword, Valkyria Chronicles for me :)
Gambit07  +   1632d ago
VC does have a sequel.
Fulensenca  +   1632d ago
But just on a handheld D:

I want it on PS3 :/
DelbertGrady  +   1632d ago
"Almost Made The List:
Clive Baker’s Jericho
Turning Point: Fall of Liberty"

Lol what!?
Quagmire  +   1632d ago
Legendary coulda bin one HELLUVA game. Great concept/ideas not seen before, absolute shite execution.

And dont forget Lair. Another game which coulda bin epic, deserves to be remade or sequelised

I think Jericho is actually pretty underrated.

I never liked it at first, but I stuck with it and it turned out to be pretty decent tbh.
Focker-420  +   1632d ago
Demon's Souls is my number 1 pick. Definitely one of my favorite games this generation.
Gambit07  +   1632d ago
Haze with Bioshock developers could been awesome.
Thepro318  +   1632d ago
HAZE with crytek be even better
Chubear  +   1630d ago
... Haze IS with Crytek now.
zerocool3397  +   1632d ago
What a dumb list. Haze is rubbish even without the problems. The Club was one of the worst games ever made. It was so bad it was cloned into 50 Cents crap game. The author must be young and have no taste in games at all. There is a lifetime of consoles to pick from. All these games deserve sequels:
Shenmue 2
The Getaway
Star Fox
Legacy of Cain
Eternal Darkness
Comix Zone

Thats a list worthy of getting published..
DaReapa  +   1632d ago
Not feeling Haze much, but Heavenly Sword is long overdue for a sequel. I definitely agree with you on Eternal Darkness. But I think the article's focus is PS3 games.
zerocool3397  +   1632d ago
see thats the problem. If you do an article like that you cant focus on one console, you have to pick some classics.
Drazz  +   1632d ago
All These Deserve A Sequel!!
Valkyria Chronicles - PS3, deserves a console sequel, not a psp sequel.
Gladius - ps2, xbox
Jade Empire - xbox
Vampire The masquerade: Bloodlines - PC
Maniac Mansion - NES
Demon's Crest - SNES
Killer Instinct GOLD - N64
Suikoden - PS2 (Stopped at V for consoles)
Rival Schools - Dreamcast
Omikron - Dreamcast
A LIVING LEGEND  +   1632d ago
Just for mentioning Gladius....you get bubs sir :)
xtremeimport  +   1632d ago
i knew HS would be on this list...I loved that game.
and, if it was released later in this gen, its length would be acceptable..since short is the new theme it seems. But seriously, make another one..and make it longer...and, trophy patch the first. :P
CreativeWriter  +   1632d ago
Really terrible list
Of course, the fellow is entitled to his opinion, but Folklore is the only decent new IP in there. Haze, The Club, and all the "honorable mentions" are indefensible. Maybe... maybe a Heavenly Sword sequel would be worthwhile, with dramatically different design decisions, but it's not like there's some scarcity of God of War style brawlers and military FPS games. IPs that seem to be languishing that deserve sequels: Demon's Souls, Warcraft RTS, Civ: Revolution, Homeworld, Dark Cloud, Champions of Norrath, Okami on console, etc-- you'll notice these are great games in genres (ARPG, RTS, RPG) that are actually under-represented this gen (esp. on consoles), not mediocre FPS games and brawlers (there's plenty of those already).
PhoenixElemental  +   1632d ago
My list.
Heavenly Sword.


Lord of the Rings- The Third Age (sequel was in development and was going to be called "The White Council" however its been indefinitely delayed by EA)
BillOreilly  +   1631d ago
LOST ODESSEY and LOST ODESSEY and LOST ODESSEY!!!!!!!!!!! wtf microsoft i wish they made a trilogy in he second it has seth and gongora in another world and gongora takes over the third the two worlds collide and gongora tries to enslave everyone and it has kaims grandkids as main characters alongside immortals in the third or even follow kaims decendants they could do so much with it id just be worried they would ruin the fantastic story its a masterpice
segamon  +   1631d ago
alot of good titles but i'd go for Legacy of Kain and Shenmue because they need to be concluded.
Stewie2k8  +   1631d ago
All i Want...
Is a Demon's Souls sequel!!!!
scar20  +   1631d ago
wants a sequel for legend of dragoon :)who agrees?
wutangkillabees  +   1631d ago
star wars battlefront series needs a next gen game
jalen247  +   1631d ago
GOW III and Heavenly Sword
Spenok  +   1631d ago
Why on Gods green earth would Haze deserve a sequel? I played through the entire game (and finished it) and i can honestly say it was a pretty bad game. And "The Club" you seriously have to be kidding me. Heavenly Sword for sure, and Folklore so long as they fix the story, and dialog.
Jon_Mclane  +   1630d ago
What about Madden 10? I think that game deserves a sequel
