James Damian of Vivid Gamer writes, "Each year we see many games come and go without giving them a second thought. Aside from the plethora of bargain-bin shovelware, there are quite a few gems that fall through the cracks. Often times these games develop a cult following, with fans demanding some type of sequel or continuation. While some franchises suffer from sequelitis (see Tony Hawk or any Activision title) there are some games that are truly deserving of sequels, yet don’t. These games may have had an enjoyable character, or, worse, could have been the first in a planned trilogy (see Beyond Good & Evil) but regardless of the reason, these are games we feel are worthy of a successor. If Duke Nukem could finally get a sequel, then we’ can still hold out hope for these picks."
