This week Arkane Studios released their stealth action game Dishonored to rave reviews. In spite of the critical acclaim, designer Harvey Smith would be happy if there's only one game. That might not be a bad idea.
No sequel is necessary unless popular consent desires such.
some are necessary if its to finish telling the story
I'd love to see Dishonored 2 at some point, it has a great universe and fantastic gameplay that Id only like to see both expanded upon
I haven't finished it yet, so I can't say "yes" or "no". The game is pretty awesome so far, but if a sequel is like Bioshok 2 to the original Bioshock, I'd say "no".
if the story in this game is completed they can go to a different setting
no i don't want to see this game have the same fate as assasin'S creed milking the franchise
I don't know man, if the sequels are done classy like the first four Hitman games, I wouldn't mind.
I don't think this game was designed to have a sequel in the first place. The ending mentions Corvo dying of old age. We can still play as another chosen of the Outsider in a possible sequel though, but I'm pretty sure Corvo's story is finished with this game.
Now that I finished it, I think there should be a sequel to expand upon.... certain characters.
We need more original games, i.e. Dishonored, and less sequels. I second the Assasins Creed example. Just way to much going on in that franchise.
But come on, you have to admit Assassin's Creed 3 looks delicious?
You got me. Assassins Creed 3 does look phenomenal. I guess I just want to reduce the number of sequels in general. Look at movies for example. I swear it seems that there's not an original idea in all of Hollywood and its frustrating. I don't want games to follow in that path.
dishonored isn't original though, it's a piss poor Bioshock clone. I do however agree, we need more original games with a bigger focus on the single player experience.
A sequel is only necessary if a character has more story to tell. With, say, Mass Effect, the trilogy was needed to finish Shepard's story and determine the fate of the galaxy. You'd feel short changed if it had just been a solitary game. Dishonored however ties both the city and protagonist's fates up nicely so a sequel isn't needed. A game in the same mould in a new universe would be welcome however.
I would love to see Dishonored take an Elder Scrolls approach to sequels. New story, characters, city, but set in same universe and just have the lore tie things together. I love the game play and focus on single player and that needs to continue.
And I hope the sequel would allow us to create a character from template as well in order to make it feel more personal to the story. I'm interested in the lands of Tyvia not to mention the Outsider pretty much gives his powers to whomever he sees fit (see Dishonored animated clip #3). The sequel does not necessarily have to involve assassins but can an expand for more choices that can fit in the world a-la Elder Scrolls.
It doesn't need a sequel but i would like for their to be one.
What the hell guys? The game has just been released and there are already calls for a sequel?! Just enjoy the game.
Jeez.... the game just freakin came out... hasnt even been out for a couple weeks and people are discussing sequels..
Am I the only person who thinks this game is average? Its not a bad game, but I don't agree with all the 9.5 - 10 reviews flying around.
I think they could do well with a sequel. There is enough there to expand on plus the game was awesome and I want more... Next gen tho.
