COGconnected: Some sequels come as a result of the artists behind it truly believing an IP deserves a second chance, could be improved with just a few small tweaks, or is indeed good enough to warrant a sequel. These ones do not.
Loads of people asked for a sequel to Knack, including myself. The first game was good fun, clearly rushed for launch, but a good launch title for PS4.
Yeah, I know a lot of people who liked the game, and said they wouldn't mind a sequel which improved on the original.
Knack 2 is so much fun for couch co-op.
Great for co/op keeping the kids entertained
you stole the words from my mouth. knack is so underrated
So how come "loads of people" didn't buy the game?
Half a milli is pretty fine for that game actually
Loads of people did. Loads of people also played it on PS+. Although, I don't really know what the actual numerical value is of a load, unless it's the kind of load that we usually see used to criticize Sony or its games.
When was Knack 2 on plus?
It sold about as well as Doom on Switch
The great dunk spoke, and knack 2 was goty before it even dropped. Spaghetti. Meatballs. Puerto Rico.
dunkey is a retarded troll
Knack 2 and Kane and Lynch 2 were so good Cool article though aha mostly all true. Still waiting for Kanye and Lynch 3 to solve that insane cliffhanger ending
I will always want more Naughty Bear. Those games are like bad SyFy movies, just so awful but so fun.
Knack 1-2 was Fantastic...,.... hope Knack 3 being developed. Can't wait for Ratchet and clank 2 Ps4
I wonder what would happen if Knack was multiplatform. Would people defend it that much.
I think people probably wouldn't even pay attention to it at all. There is no denying that exclusives do get a bit of a bump in notoriety. Same could be said for any number of mid-tier game which is multi-plat. It doesn't really get that much attention outside of an announcement, maybe an occasional screen shot or marketing blurb, and then some reviews on release. Quite a few mid-tier titles that are exclusive...especially those from 1st party, get a lot more attention. That being said, the first one was pretty fun for a launch title. The second one was really good, although still had some room to do things better.
I definitely asked for a Rage sequel. The first game was one of my favourites from the past gen and Rage 2 looks really promising!
i also loved the first Rage and wanted a sequel!!! i can't wait for it!!
I would include FFXIII 2 and LR altbough they were way better than the og but nobody was dare asking for a whole trilogy for numbered FF
I liked the games, weakest for me is XIII-2. Didn't ask for them but I gladly bought them all
Yeah, but I never would have asked for a sequel to any FF game, because they almost never happened. Maybe some side stories, but FFX-2 was the only direct sequel, and it wasn't very well received, although not really all that bad. Funny enough, FFXIII built on the battle switching aspect of FFX-2. That being said, I did like XIII-2, and even FXIII once I stopped seeing it as a FF game. LR was a good game, just a convoluted and stupid story which pretty much threw out all the lore of the prior games, which was already changed up for XIII-2. I think the top sequel nobody asked for was Nier. Despite how well Nier Automata did, the original barely got anybody talking about it. I don't think there were many asking for sequels for it. After they announced it, a lot of people were excited, because Nier was good, but not many were asking for it before that. I'm glad they made a sequel, because I do like the Drakkengard series, and loved Nier Automata.
I actually kinda liked Knack 2 (a lot more than Knack imo) and Red Steel 2 was plain good fun. What should have actually been on the list are Unearthing Mars 2 and Aeternoblade 2. Seriously, did anyone asked for a sequel of these 2 games?
There are plenty of sequels people never asked for but are grateful for them coming out
And plenty of games where plenty of people ask for sequels that never come.
