Games That Deserve a Sequel

Introduction:Another day, another time I had trouble coming up with a list to do (all the ones I have pre-planned are harder to finish the precise order than I anticipated) so I asked my brother for one to do and he came up with this one, as he recently saw a video on it. All us gamers now of a video game series or game that we loved and were disappointed that a sequel never came out. As long as there isn't a sequel in production, it's eligible for this list. One game series per franchise, as always I'm going to try and not bore you by repeating throwing out say, three different Sonic game series.

    Xenosaga

    Xenosaga is one of my favorite video game series of all-time and honestly, it may not deserve to be. I love the first game, good god do I love the first game. It's mostly set-up to the stuff to come but I love the battle system. I love the upgrade system but more than anything I love the characters. I love how often it just lets the characters get to breath, the cutscenes really helps get me invested into these characters and there plight. Making me at least play at three games, which while I do like the other two (haven't gotten too far in the second and I hear it gets worse so who knows) but the third was rather good even though the battle system is easily the most generic of the three. While most of my love is directed towards the first game, I do like all three episodes and while the ending of the third one worked as an ending, there is still plenty of story to be told with these characters.

    Ristar

    When I decided to do this list, Ristar was the very first game to come to my mind. Mainly because unlike Xenosaga which got three games, Ristar was left with only one. As a big platformer fan (2D platformers are probably my favorite genre), you can probably figure why I loved this little game about a star with stretchable arms. This is one of my favorite platformers and easily one of the best games I've played from the genesis. The game just got everything right and it's popularity showed. This game at least has a cult following, since it's rare to find a list like this that doesn't include Ristar. Most who played it really enjoyed it and it's continually lauded by even critics today as a great game. Most of the series on this list got multiple entries but Ristar didn't even get a second chance.

    Sonic Adventure

    When deciding between Sonic Adventure & Sonic Generations for the Sonic series that most deserves a sequel, I found myself conflicted. For Generations, I love the idea and the initial game was too short. I probably wouldn't love for it to be a frequent series but I certainly would like another one but with Adventure, I don't know I feel there's a bigger series here and I'd probably end up spending more time playing Sonic Adventure 3 than Generations. The Sonic Adventure Series is the high point of the Sonic games in my opinion. First off, the Sonic/Tails(A1)/Shadow(A2) levels were fantastic. I love the way the segregate the stories (continued in future installments like Sonic Heroes). The Tails(A2)/Gamma(A1)/Eggman(A2) levels were a lot of fun too. The only gameplay style that didn't do it for me in both games were the treasure hunt ones. I liked them in the first game, hated them in the second but hey, they were still funner than the fishing levels! But the biggest reason I want a Sonic Adventure 3 is for the Chao. Admit it, raising Chao were the funniest part of the second game, because the first game's Chao Garden was severely underdeveloped even though it still contained aspects that I really liked and I kinda wish some of their Gardens were in the second game which speaking of why did the re-release versions of Adventure 2 used the neutered version of the Gardens instead of the awesome Dreamcast one . . . wasn't it?

    Earthworm Jim

    Oh, Earthworm Jim, you incredible messed up, quirky game you? As Fort Minor & Holly Brook best said, Where'd you go? I miss you so. Seems like it's been forever that you've been gone. The first two games of Earthworm Jim are incredibly fun, original, funny (you get to launch a cow in space, I rest my case) & most importantly diverse. You get a lot of different types of levels in those two games my favorites were probably the space races against Psy-Crow, those were always a blast. The N64 game . . . um, the first two games were awesome and totally deserve a new one.

    Toejam & Earl

    Another Genesis game? Why yes, yes it is. Toejam & Earl was a fresh of breath air when it went on the market, featuring a very fun treasure hunt game two player game that can last you hours on end. The soundtrack was very good and it's humor was rather quirky and in full force. Out of all the games I played growing up, it was the one that stood out from the rest because I still haven't played another game quite like it. Unfortunately, that extends to the sequel which for the most part, killed everything that made it original. I still had fun with it but the spark was gone. And the third game, well I've never played it but let's say it looks horrendous. When I'm talking about a sequel, I mean going back to basics. Going back to what made this game so cherished by those who played it.




Final Thoughts

Well, this list was relatively fun little distractions. I wrote in my profile that I'm more of a retro gamer and I'm guessing my choices here show that pretty well. But what games do you guys think deserve a sequel? I'm interested to hear your opinions, heck you may change mind considering this was a list I kind of threw together. Let me know in the comments!

    Wow, does this list date me. I think I am reading Greek here. I don't have a clue how to post a comment or at least an intelligent one. So I will leave my h5 and that is all.
