Why 2011 Is The "Year of Sequels"

As you may have read from different publications both in news stands and around the Internet, a lot of writers from the industry are calling 2011 the “Year of Sequels”. With titles like Dragon Age 2, Gears of War 3, Elder Scrolls V, Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3, Portal 2, Dead Space 2, Batman: Arkham City, Killzone 3 and possibly Modern Warfare 3, just to name a few, it would be more suitable to call 2011 the “Year of Series”.

Although the notion is understandable, it couldn’t be further from the truth.

In the gaming industry every year is the "year of the sequel."

Great article though. Lots of good stuff to look forward to in the coming months.

This year really has some good new IPS coming out, though. Bulletstorm proved to be worth it!!!!!!

I was just coming in here to state this very thing. Seems my talents for stating the obvious are not needed here :p

But true indeed, some fangasmic games on the way.

As long as they are good games I don't mind the sequels - I think I was ready for Halo to be done however with Bungie

A lot of good games coming out this year. Can't wait to get my hands on them. I agree with MultiConsoleGamer though. There are a bunch of sequels coming out every year. I think this one may be better than recent though

I am so sick of seeing the same games released with numbers behind their names . I cant wait until we see something new for once.

Assassins creed

the list goes on and on. Sick of it. Give me new!
