5 Prequels Better Than the Originals

Beer + Videogames: Prequels are funny business. A lot of times, they include unnecessary baggage, or worse, ruin the franchise as a whole. I can make an obvious jab at Star Wars here, but gaming gets it just as bad as developers aim to reinvent a series from the past forwards, but instead unravel the franchise as a result (Perfect Dark Zero, I’m looking at you).

cant say anything, havent played most of these games except for GTA

@Gam3s4lif3 you should totaly play MGS3

MGS3 is the best prequel to any franchise i ever played (consider i still didnt played any Zelda game yet) and storywise definitly the best ever!

Gam3s4lif32973d ago

Really? I might try it later, What do you guys think about MGS:R?

tacosRcool2973d ago

MGS3 is the bomb. Just buy the PS2 collection with it in it or Buy MSG3 subsistence and then you'll get the original MG and MG2

MGS3 hands down is the best. It made up for that awful MGS2.

Eamon2973d ago

I disagree. MGS2 was absolutely amazing. It was also more similar to MGS1.

fossilfern2973d ago (Edited 2973d ago )

MGS3 was a an outstanding game very fond memories. one of the best MGS games and one of the best PS2 games IMO

splinter cell pandora tomorrow a prequel?

coolbeans2973d ago

No. The only Splinter Cell game that could be considered a prequel is that handheld one.
