10 Series That Need a Sequel

I love new IPs. There’s nothing like trying a brand new idea for the first time and loving it. However, once a new IP has been finished and put aside, it’s only natural to want to play more of that franchise, namely sequels. Some games get the sequels they deserve, some get way too many sequels (I’m looking at you, Guitar Hero), while others gets brushed under the mat, seemingly forgotten by the gamer gods. Some of the games I have listed below were more high-profile in their day, but all ten of these sequels are worthy of consideration.

Jade Empire was so awesome! Played it and loved it first on xbox1. Then it got Even better on PC with the MUCH improved graphics and butter smooth framerate! So of course I had to play it all over again with a new char.

good times!

Legend of Dragoon please.
I would prefer a remake over a sequal though. You can't really touch the classics without ruining them these days.

Great list!
I would love a sequel to "Armed and Dangerous".
one of the few games that made me laugh non stop all the way through it.

Double Post...

oh well, I'll throw a few more beyond "AaD".

How about
Grim Fandango, Psychonaughts, Mirror's Edge, Psi Ops, Alan Wake, Jet Force gemini, BLACK, as well as LIMBO, IloMilo, and "Small Arms".

How about a new "Vigilante 8" or a Splinter Cell that goes back to it's damned roots for once?

for some reason, I am really drawing a blank. I really feel like last generation was going strong with new titles that failed to embrace this generation. It annoys me that a game must be a damned near breakout hit for a sequel...

I ###### love Vigilante 8. I wish I could go back and edit my comment.

Zombies ate my neighbors...

You mean a good sequel? or a Because there was Ghoul Patrol.

stevenhiggster2138d ago

I would love more Heavenly Sword.
The first one didn't really leave any room for a sequel though.

So as much as I'd like a sequel I'd be worried it might not fit in with what happened in the first game so sadly they should probably leave it alone.

Unless the developers decide to make Kai the main character, I don't see any point in a sequel. A spirtual sequel would be more appropriate than a direct sequel.
