Wiiloveit.com: Don't Mess With My Game!

"Recently, I made an appeal to developers to challenge the idea of a conventional sequel, but after spending some time with PokéPark 2 and Mario Party 9, I can now appreciate the fact that this should not always be the case." -- Wiiloveit.com (Industry, Mario Party 2, Mario Party 9, Nintendo, PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure, Wii)

The author makes a fairly obvious point: finding a balance between the new and familiar in sequels is a difficult target to hit. Nintendo may be the best company to illustrate that point, given their penchant for cranking out new iterations in the same various series for decades. People particularly have been grumbling about Zelda, Mario, and Mario Kart, recently, with new titles in the last year that FEEL old; too much covering of old ground when fans who have grown up playing those games want something new. But too much new and fans become turned off by the changes... I think it's cyclical, personally. If you can take a break from a beloved franchise for a few years/sequels, you'll be more than happy to revisit them when the time is right. They'll be there like an old friend.
