I hate how everything is made to be a franchise now and days. There something to be said for a self-contained experience with a finite story. I'm also quite sick of reboots (what have they done to you my precious Syndicate?)

I think sequels are only needed if your expanding the story like the Uncharted series.

Fusion Frenzy really didn't need a sequel.
Dragon Age 1 didn't need the sequel that was put out, it needed a true successor.
Some people would argue FF13 don't need a sequel, seeing as I never played the game, I will just leave that game along.

1) to fix the previous game based on user feedback
2) To add more things the developer wanted o do with the game but couldn't based on limitations (ie, success of first game gives dev enough money to expand their horizons and try to do something bigger and better the next game)

Why not make sequels if you are getting a huge profit out of it? Blame the idiots that buy these milked games not the developers.

Well said gloomy, the developer is doing it ONLY because it's bring a lot of money in, don't even say but "VALVE" Valve is doing it too with L4D they knew its a success and will keep milking on it.
