Games That Deserve A Sequel

Fobia writes: "What makes a great video game? Is it the story? The main character’s personality? The genre of the game? The realism of the graphics? Physics? Action? Emotion?…What? Does a game have to have a combination of two or more to make it considered “Great”? To go along with these questions, does only a great game deserve a sequel? I know that if a game does not cover the cost of production and a little extra, it is highly unlikely that game will be allowed to have a sequel. Or if the company does not think that a sequel will be profitable, then the whole idea of making a sequel will be swept under the rug. That is the way things are; its all about the money. But…what if it wasn’t? What if the final say if a game being created wasn’t if it would sell a million copies? What if it was if the game would have a great story? Changed the way a genre is played? Creates a new genre?"

I can get behind Heavenly Sword. I had a lot of fun with it, but Haze can burn in hell for all I care.

demons souls, heavenly sword

Love those 2, and Folklore. Folklore probably sold so low because no one has been able to find copies of it for a while, all people are buying are used copies. Combat was fun it in, and the story was interesting.

yes i know there are sequals but none of them were true to the first.
dmc2 was just plainly bad
dmc3 was fun but it lacked the fealing of number 1, nothing but heavymetal and cheesy lines.
dmc4 was too fucking colorful, where the hell were the demons, why the hell am i fighting colorful fantasy monsters from fantasy Land.

only reason im still a very big fan of the dmc series is because i still have much love for the first DMC.

i want serious dante with only a little humor(just like the 1st)

i want a mysterious and dark theme/feeling (just like the first)

i want less heavymetal music and more evilchurch orchestrated music(just like the 1st)

i want bloody red evil demons instead of pussy fantasy rainbow monsters (just like the 1st)

Am I really the only one who says Skies of Arcadia 2?

This is still my favorite PS3 game, I love playing it. If there were any PS3 game that I'd want a sequel to, it would be HS.

That and Shenmue, that game needs closure.

Haze COULD belong on a "Games that Deserve a Different Developer to Create a Sequel to" list, because it's a flawed game with good concepts. Along with the 3D Gex games.

Give it to Insomniac or Guerilla, they can turn a shitstorm into a goldmine any day of the week

Only if it had to do with polygons. After that they'd be kinda clueless.

I love this type of thing. Heavenly Sword is one of the best games this generation that was missed by so many. They need a sequel on this for sure. I would wet myself if this ever came true.

What about doing Lair correctly?

NecrumSlavery3176d ago (Edited 3176d ago )

LAIR 2 would probably look better than GOW3, and the controls would be phenomenal. But the hate from the first game would battle it to the ground. LAIR was pretty bad. I don't see to many games getting an award winning sequel from a failing prequel. I don't see people giving the second one a fair shake.

Heavenly Sword definitey deserves a sequel. Too bad Ninja Theory never supported their own masterpiece. They can fall off for all I care.

I would like to give it up for my man Luigi here, A luigi's mansion 2 would make my day

rdgneoz33176d ago

Two Worlds is getting a sequel, I think Lair could get one as well. Heavenly sword needs one along with Demon's Souls.

Quagmire3176d ago (Edited 3176d ago )

dude....ur profile pic scares the shit outta me...

ECM0NEY3176d ago

What about Cain and Lynch? That got a sequel. Dont give up! lol
