Some games benefit from a sequel, while others just don't need one. Here's CoG's list of five games that are good enough without sequels.
With the way Spiderman ended I really want a sequel to continue the story.
Spiderman being on this list made me laugh. Not only was there an obvious cliffhanger, and not only did it sell ridiculous numbers, but it's Spiderman! We've gotten Spiderman games for every console since Atari. From Ps2 through PS3, we got a game practically every year. Some were sequels, some weren't. But more is coming regardless, and I think they'd be crazy not to make it a sequel to 2018's. Probably even two sequels should come next gen. And I would love a Shovel Knight sequel, but I think YC should be allowed to release something completely different first.
Best part of spiderman is that it's perfectly normal to have completely new stories unrelated to the previous story within comic universes. Heck, batman and spiderman are well known to have several popular timelines.
Sure. But then you consider we just got a Batman game trilogy, a batman movie trilogy, a 3rd Holland Spidey flick coming...and a 2018 Spiderman game that ends on a cliffhanger. I see no reason to believe they'd give much consideration to a shift here.
I'm not sure if I want a sequel because I loved the first one but if it's the same city same characters etc I don't know if it will be as fun to play as the first would be. Sure a new storyline etc will feature but there's no more reason to explore new York after spending tons of hours seeing everything in 1. I would prefer another IP get the Spiderman treatment
To be fair the next gen hardware would allow some really impressive level streaming, plus the pre-baked reflections would make way for ray-tracing (I'm assuming) plus the Spiderman universe has a huge amount of villains to populate the game with.
There is a sequel coming but it's an interesting point about the city. I'm not sure what will happen there I guess they could well feature New York and somewhere else tbf. MJ does reference going to report abroad in inforget the name but it's on the civil war in fictional country ruled by doctor doom in the comics. A story with first chapter set in a city there then you return to NYC could be interesting?
It's in development they've literally as good as confirmed that. When it will be out hiwever that's anyone's guess. I wouldn't be shocked if it's a year one ps5 title- helps to shift units then we see a 3rd game later in the gen.
I guess they are doing games that don’t have planned confirmed sequels yet cause The Last of Us would be on my list. I still will play the shit out of the second but the first one was a great standalone game.
Seriously Marvels Spider-Man? The game literally ended by teasing the sequel.
I don't understand. If you find the game so good, why wouldn't you want more?
Because adding just for the sake of adding can taint the thing you like. Look at the Star Wars prequels & sequels.
I disagree. Bad followups don't change my opinion of originals. I still love the films Alien and Aliens even if everything after them has been terrible. Godfather and Godfather Part II will always be classics even if Godfather III was a massive disappointment. Same with Terminator and Terminator 2, and the terrible sequels after those. It's easy to just ignore the lesser followups.
Spider-Man ends on begging for a sequel
Blatant click bait having Spiderman on that list!
Nah Spiderman DEFINITELY needs a sequel with the way it ended after the DLC.
BLOODBORNE, easily. Killed Ebrietas. Killed Rom. Killed Micolash. Killed Moon Presence. Killed Queen Yharnam. Became a Great One... Fin.
Fin? NO. I WANT MOAR. but if I never get a sequel, I won't be disappointed as long as they dont shut down the servers.
Shovel Knight has like four DLC's, half of which were practically sequels. And it's getting a puzzle spinoff thing. I'm pretty sure they're gonna do a sequel.
Every game on this list would be just fine getting a sequel. I mean the only one I didn't get into was Bastion. I think because my friend told me since I love turned based JRPGs I would love Bastion. I am not sure where he got that idea but it hurt my first time trying the game. I have hence tried it again but its very backlogged.
