Favorite Game of All Time That Never Got a Sequel

253 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

     Nowadays it seems sequels have become rather common, even if the original game is mediocre (Mercenaries, Two Worlds, Sacred, Risen, need I continue lol) Yet every once in a while the game publisher releases a gem that you wish would get a sequel that doesn't. Can you name any games that you wish got a sequel but didn't?

 

     I have a few that come to mind from different eras of gaming -

 

  • WWF Wrestfest (Arcade) - I loved the heck out of this game. If they were to release this as part of Hamster's "Arcade Archives" on PS4 @ $59.95 (their regular games are $7) I would snap it up in a heartbeat. Ironically, THQ had actually begun work on a modernized sequel for this game but it disappeared when the company went bankrupt.:(
  • Brigandine(PS1) - REALLY fun rpg/strategy game with amazing graphics (for its time) Actually this game is pretty expensive if you try to buy it now. If this were re-released with trophies I would drop everything else I'm doing and jump on it
  • Vagrant Story(PS1) - Beautiful graphics (for its time), excellent story and I enjoyed it immensely. This game was a victim of its complexity and difficulty [it was like Demon's Souls before Demon's Souls came out] Conicidentally, its on sale in the PS Store this week, highly recommended!
  • Okami (PS2/PS3) - A beautiful, enoyable game by Capcom, undisputed sequel king of the video game world, and they never made a sequel for it?!? How's that for irony? If there was a game that I would get the Ultra Super Alpha Turbo Arcade Championship Edition of it would be Okami.
  • Kingdoms of Amalur (PS3) - an action/RPG that I thoroughly enjoyed but the company that made it went out of business.
  • Heavenly Sword (PS3)- Story was a big "so what" but the gameplay and graphics are awesome.No idea why this game has no sequel (or trophies)

 

      How about you all, are there any games you wish had a sequel but don't?

It has a spiritual sequel (Paper Mario) but Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars never got a direct one. I loved that game so much growing up. The more recent Mario RPG games just didn't capture me like Legend of the Seven Stars did.

Bully.

Hehe stole my answer.

 

Other than Bully I'm not sure, I guess Sleeping Dogs but there's Triad Wars even though that's not really a sequel.

 

I've always wanted a season 2 of Telltale's Back to the Future.

 

Oh and Dead Nation absolutely.

PlayStation all stars. Also, Okami does have a sequel. It's called Okamiden, although it's only on DS.

Freelancer (PC), a sequel was planned for Xbox 360 but guess what, canned.

 

Warhawk (PS1), was rumored for ages, and no, i don't consider that PS3 multiplayer game as a successor.

 

Titan Quest (PC), another canned sequel, because of... Kingdoms of Amalur <_<"

 

Renegade Ops (PC/PS3), they're too busy with Just Cause 3 and Mad Max. Maybe one day...

 

And OP, they made a sequel to Okami. It's Okamiden, on NDS.

Red Dead Redemption, probably for the better though.

Okami did get a sequel/spin-off on the DS but I don't really know if it counts. Though honestly, and even though Okami is my favorite game of all-time, I'd rather it didn't have a sequel. The original was - I daresay - already perfect, and the story finishes exactly where and how it should, so the chances they'd make an inferior game are practically guaranteed (and Okamiden was indeed an inferior game). I'd rather they'd just keep it like like that - a lone, solitary gem.
