Kotaku: “There are great sequels. And then there are all the crappy ones that seem like little more than cynical cash grabs. I’m going to focus on the former.”
Uncharted 2 comes to mind as the biggest improvement as a sequel IMO. Waking up every day in my first playthrough of that game was like waking up in Christmas morning as a kid.
is kotaku somewhat felt the low visits because of its trash nerdy political correct articles and returned back to normal -at least readable gaming articles????/
I was thinking Uncharted 2 !! ...but then I thought of Mass Effect 2... Both are amazing games but I felt the story arch in Mass Effect 1 and 2 made the sequel even more memorable in my humble opinion.
Infamous 2 for me. That was a hell of a sequel. My fav PS3 game ever
Street Fighter 2 Resident Evil 2 MKII Uncharted 2 RDR2
Smash Melee is the an amazing sequel and blew the first smash out of the water
Shadow of the Colossus (more of a prequel) Nier automata Silent hill 2
Ratchet and clank 2, I spent my summer allowance on that game, I had a great summer.
Kingdom Hearts 2
Mass media/gaming sites are the definition of a cynical soulless cash grab. YouTube is/was a much better sequel.
Blah, blah, blah. Go watch YouTube then, I’m sure YouTube and streamers don’t monetize their form of mass media. Hypocrite. Very appropriate name, btw.
Dragon Quest/Warrior Zelda Final Fantasy Tomb Raider
None of those are sequels. O_o
My bad, I thought the article was referring to franchises with sequels.
If we’re talking direct sequels and not continuation of a series i.e. MARIO, Zelda, Final Fantasy, etc. Here would be my list in no particular order: 1. Super Metroid 2. Uncharted 2 (easily my favorite in the series) 3. Halo 2 4. God of War 2 5. Zelda II 6. Mass Effect 2 7. Turok 2 8. Tomb Raider 2 (PS1) 9. Mega Man 2 10. Resident evil 2
uncharted 2 is the best one
Gears of War 2 was amazing. I have so many found memories of that game ranging from the campaign, to multiplayer and horde mode. Another one of my favorite sequels is the Resident Evil 2 REmake, though it's hard to say if it's still technically a sequel at this point or not since it's very much a different game compared to the original. Also can't forget to include Left 4 Dead 2, that game is always fun to go back to here and there with some buddies. No matter what, you'll always be in for one hell of a time.
Super Metroid, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Sly Cooper 2: Band of Theives are good sequels. But my favourite sequel must be Metroid Prime 2.
It's impossible for me to recollect all of the games I have played throughout my life, but what comes to mind immediately would be: Mass Effect 2. I also think of Metal Gear Solid 3. While it's my favorite game of all time, if you play MGS1 and 2, Snake Eater isn't some amazing jump in quality, because all three are significant games imo. I'm really choosing between games in which I played the original and the sequel(s), otherwise I'd name The Witcher 3, but I've gotta be real!
Uncharted 2 Ninja Gaiden 2(NES) Super Metroid Contra: The Alien Wars Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Phantasy Star 4 Castlevania 4 Super Mario Bros( after Mario Bros) I couldn't just pick one because there's so many that I could go on and on and on listing sequels that bested the original that I enjoyed equally from fun factor.
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.
Still Suikoden II.
Mass Effect 2. Also: Final Fantasy IV/VI, Super Mario World, Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Phantasy Star II/III/IV, Mass Effect 3.
Silent Hill 2
Dark Cloud 2. The sequel was a night and day different game.
Shadow Hearts: Covenant
Gravity Rush 2 The first game was a great start, but for an open world game, if was too empty and too lackluster in terms of content and exploration. The sequel drastically improved upon that by giving us so much content, side missions, and exploration to the point where it felt overwhelming, as well as online components that made me keep coming back (Unfortunatelly, the game's online features have been shut down).
Jak 2 is awesome, suikoden 2 and the pinnacle of sequels the one to rule them all is Mass Effect 2.
Suikoden 2 Parasite Eve 2 Xenogeras - 5th in the Xenosaga series :) Front Mission 3 Mass Effect 2 Witcher 2 and 3 RDR2 God of War (2018)
Silent hill 2 Metal gear solid 2 Resident Evil 2 Killzone 2 The Sims 2 Tekken 2 Ape escape 2 Dark Cloud 2 Wolfenstein 2 Red dead redemption 2 Portal 2 Half life 2 Lfd2 Soul caliber 2 Megaman Legends 2 Halo 2 Gears 2 Fable 2 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Super Mario maker 2 Resistence 2 God of War 2 Jak 2 Crash Bandicoot 2 Megaman 2 Onimusha 2 Midevil 2 Doom 2 Quake 2 Street fighter 2
