Top Ten Games/Series That Deserve Sequels

GamerNode writes:
"Several gamers say that sequels can ruin a franchise, that they can cause a good game to be bled out for money and profit. However, this past year proves that sequels can actually be capable of restoring franchises and turning them into them powerhouses. Games like Uncharted 2, Assassin's Creed II, Mass Effect 2, and Red Dead Redemption all showed that sequels can be a good thing for video games. So with that in mind, here's a top ten list of video games and franchises that have all gone at least four years without a full-fledged sequel, but deserve one." (GameCube, Gun, Half-Life 2, Jade Empire, Jedi Knight: Jedi academy, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Psychonauts, Star Wars Battlefront II, Suikoden V, Xbox, Xbox 360)

I can definitely get behind PSYCHONAUTS! Woooo!!

Jade Empire sequel, si'l vous plait. I'm down with all that.
italianbreadman  +   1720d ago
I have mixed feelings about Jade Empire. It seemed like a cool premise, but I was just bored by it and stopped playing. I guess it was the combat. Felt like Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

I would have to commence fapping if a Battlefront sequel was announced. Oh, and also Psychonauts!

Hmmn...
Why does Half-life in the list ?

There's already HL2 amirite ?
Murpho  +   1720d ago
This is for games and games series that deserve sequels (next numbered or declared sequential installment in the series). Half Life is on there as the series saying that Half Life 3 deserves to be made.

Dude the majority of this list is of games with sequels.

I personally would love a Jedi Knight IV.. Kyle Katarn was such a cool character. Outcast is my #2 fav Star Wars game next to KOTOR. I was very disappointed with Jedi Academy's lack of substance. I would love to see another JK game. Also it would be cool to see another Republic Commando. The game was good but I really liked it for its raw hardcore appeal.

Of games that never had any sequels, I would give it up for Heavenly Sword and Luigi's Mansion to get a good sequel.

Heavenly Sword is a GREAT choice. THat game didn't get NEARLY as much love as it deserved.

suikoden needs a VI
SirLarr  +   1720d ago
There was a Suikoden game on the DS... I dunno, I love Suikoden as much as the next guy but I think the series would work these days.

Star Wars: Republic Commando!!!

Jade Empire. Yeeeeees. Please.
ChrisPriestman  +   1720d ago
Gun was brilliant but I don't think it garners a sequel as Red Dead has pretty much done it.

I'm still hoping for a Beyond Good and Evil sequel, damn teasers!

Legend Of Dragoon. The end.
JonDiskonected  +   1720d ago
oh yes, a gun sequel, I thought it was better than red dead redemption

also how about a sequel of tenchu and a sequel/remake of legacy of kain series
Murpho  +   1720d ago
Legacy of Kain is a great idea. A revival of that would be sick.
STK026  +   1720d ago
Where are psi-ops and Freedom fighters?
DanCrabtree  +   1720d ago
Easily
Battlefront. Why the fall of Pandemic meant the end of this series is beyond me given the obvious demand.

Toonstruck
Jeanne D'Arc
Stella Deus
Wukung the Monkey King
Nier
Vandal Hearts (2 and foj are garbage)
Grandia
Sam and Max (sequel of the original)

Of the entire list I mostly want KH3 and SW:BF3. If either one was announced I would cry with joy. If both were announced I dont know what I would do.

The Kingdom Hearts series are on the top 5 of my favorite games. Star Wars: Battlefront 1 and 2 are (to me) the funnest star wars games I have ever played. If the third one doesn't support offline split-screen, that will be a real let down and will stop me from getting it, since thats the only reason the first 2 are good (again my opinion).

Suikoden VI will be the tru JRPG if its exclusive to the PS3
