Top 10 Most Improved Video Game Sequels (with Videos)

GameDynamo - "More often than not, a sequel can't beat the original. In fact, some people prefer to leave things be and not see their favorite movie or game ruined by a follow-up that may bring nothing to the table but pain. Still, everyone should be given the benefit of the doubt, as in some cases a sequel has helped the developers redeem themselves and fix what wasn't perfect, turning an already excellent product into a AAA masterpiece. Here are some examples in the world of video games."

All of these were excellent sequels, though some of them (Read Dead, MGS) were so far removed from their prior entries that they were practically franchise reboots.

That said, I'm surprised to see no Zelda title on the list. ALttP was a huge leap over Zelda 2, and OoT was another successful transition. Speaking of Nintendo, Mario 64 also pretty much defined 3D platforming.

Oh, and GTA3. Hard to ignore that one. And for our current generation, COD4 is probably the most influential sequel. OK, I'll stop there. Too many sequels...

MaxXAttaxX4448d ago

I wouldn't say that MGS was a reboot.
The gameplay was a natural evolution in technology and the game still takes Metal Gear 1 and 2 into account, storywise.

ALttP, Super Metroid, Super Castlevania IV, Street Fighter II, Red Dead Redemption, GTAIII, Metal Gear Solid, SoulCalibur, Red Steel 2... And what about TLOZSS's improvement over TLOZTP on the Wii?? That was quite phenomenal.

Also..

Super Metroid is the best Gen IV game ever created!

Incorrect.

Super Metroid the the best game ever created, period.

DeadSpaced4448d ago

Ah. Super Metroid, you never cease to bring back pleasant memories.

I don't agree with the Team Fortress Classic being an improved sequel. Not a fan of the cartooney approach that the newer TFC displayed, and the original wasn't a mod for Quake it was a Half-Life mod that far outlived the online aspect of Half-Life. How did they get that wrong?

Street Fighter 2 over Street Fighter is probably the most notable one there for me.

I just want 4k/1440p and 60fps support. And with little glitches too ofc.

This is about the PC version of RDR 1. The PC version of RDR 2 doesn't have a frame rate cap. Though I do agree, it is mind boggling that Rockstar still hasn't released a patch for consoles.

XiNatsuDragnel12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

It'll be great if true

LucasRuinedChildhood12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

Hopefully 60fps on consoles for RDR2 is next then.

LucasRuinedChildhood12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

Honestly, a PS5 Pro isn't even needed for 60fps in this case. But if they wanted to use it show a game running maxed out at a high resolution at 60fps, I wouldn't complain. Just give us 60fps. lol

I think the Series X might have an issue running the One X version at a locked 60fps as that version was a full native 4K but they could just lower the resolution a bit.
