Ok so we all know that some games are just awful. Whether it maybe because of the story or gameplay some games fall short of the developers intentions. So what i ask you is what games old or new deserve sequels even though the first game is considers by the majority trash. 


For example i thought Turning Point: Fall of Liberty had a good chance of being a great game. Granted the gameplay was awful, but the concept for the story had potential.

Drake of 100 Dragons anyone?

Seriously, though, I think that the old Magic the Gathering game would be awesome if they made a more free-roaming, action-oriented sequel.

Lost Kingdoms. Well technically it did have a sequel, but its sequel once again failed to deliver on the potential the game design had it its core.

Big Rigs. I want the game with semi updated graphics, but still borken gameplay.

Legend of Dragoon

Hm, Jedi Academy. While it isn't a REALLY bad game, it's still bad if you compare it to Jedi Outcast. The single player levels were no where near as good, making the player control Jaden Korr instead of Kyle was a terrible idea because Kyle basically is the Jed Knight series. He's been in Dark Forces, Dark Forces II, DFII mysteries of the Sith and Jedi Outcast, why the heck would they randomly change the main character? Ugh.

Assassin's Creed.
They've got a damn good engine, and they have great controls... now they just need to give us some actual content.

Red Steel.

Yoshi's Story.

#12 Posted by phatkav (304 posts) -

Red Steel. And there is Killzone, but that is already getting a sequel that hopefully will be good.

Just thought I'd throw this in I tried to edit it into the last post but had some technical difficulties.

I'd like to see a good Evil Dead game. The source material deserves a good game.

#18 Edited by Deculture (12 posts) -

Deus Ex needs another game. Hear it's in development from rumors. Deus Ex: Invisible War was one of the worst FPS I have ever played. Loading times were terrible.

Yeah, I'd like to see a good Red Steel game.

I really liked Jedi Academy.

A good Evil Dead game would be amazing.

Yeah, with big rigs you can really go nowhere but up.

Also, Custom Robo for the gamecube. That thing was terrible

#27 Posted by tec3297 (1170 posts) -

I've been wanting to play Turning Point, the story sounded great, and maybe if they give the series over to another developer it could be a great game play experience as well.

#30 Posted by MrJared (398 posts) -

Not that I thought it was bad per se, but WET deserves a second chance and a much better sequel. It has a whole lot of charm and great ideas behind it, but its clear that A2M simply ran out of time. The entire final level was a long series of quick-time events and the audio track doesn't even seem complete throughout the whole thing :(

This, and while I have full faith the sequel will be great it is a new setting, new characters, new guns, new moves. Everything. Despite the game play flaws I thought the style and story of Red Steel was damn cool and wanted to see a sequel to that.
#32 Posted by gunswordfist (576 posts) -

 I keep on hearing complaints about Wet. But for its gameplay type alone, I'd love to see q sequel.

@Scorched: There is actually a novel written by Phillip K Dick that explores this same concept...

I know it's not a bad game by any means (in fact, it's one of my favorites). but I'd like to see a sequel to The Darkness. Preferably with the Angelus and Witchblade.

#35 Posted by HistoryInRust (6305 posts) -

Too Human, I'd say. That game had some issues, but there is a lot of potential to be reaped.

@klaus: Umm, how about a solid 'NO' to the Turning Point sequel. Considering the flop that was the first game I won't be expecting a sequel any time soon, or at all for that matter.

I just recently played this game..  Never understood the hate it recieved before, I assumed it was just like the SNES version.
After playing it, I honestly can't believe how bad it was and how much it deviated from the original..
 
It's probably the only game I've ever played that I really wish I hadn't.

I'd love another proper Mega Man X sequel.  While I actually loved MegaMan X8, many people think the series totally went downhill after X4, never fully redeeming itself.  I think the 3D perspective/2D gameplay worked great with the formula.  I don't think Capcom is interested in doing another one though, they might do another MegaMan ZX type game on the DS but I'd actually love a next-gen X game...provided they could pull it off well.  It's a tired formula, maybe... but it would be cool if they could mess with it to come up with something fresh, yet familiar.

#42 Edited by HatKing (5941 posts) -

Kane and Lynch.  The game was developed by an otherwise trustworthy studio and there are some brilliant concepts there, specifically the idea behind the multiplayer.  However the execution was terrible, the game was buggy, rushed and looked really uneven.  The story could have been good, but ended up wrapping up in a really weird way hurting the chance of a good story in a sequel.  I feel like if they spent more time working on making the game playable, then it would have been good, maybe even possible to overlook how awful the story ended. 
 
However the idea of sequels is just annoying to me.  People or at least the suits in the production companies invest way too much in the "name" of a franchise.  I understand that it is fun to rob banks, but do we really need to call it Kane and Lynch?  I get that war is a good topic for a video game, but seriously Spec Ops?  What are they really going to lose by calling them something else, starting a new story and not having real gamers draw comparisons from a totally under par product? 
 
EDIT:  Let me add that I think a far more interesting topic would be: "Great Games That Don't Need Sequels" 
Bioshock and Dead Space both pop out at me.

They should Make JK5 follow up after the dark side ending where you play as Kyle and have to hunt down Jaden. Of course they could just follow up the light side ending and make you play as Kyle in a totally unrelated story. Still, that dark side ending sets up what could be a pretty interesting scenario.

Yeah, another Mega Man X would be awesome.

@addictedtopinescent: I heard they're doing a trilogy on the game; or well they planned it anyways.
 
Also I want a sequel for Legend of Dragoons. It wasn't a bad game actually; just that it got mixed reception from reviewers. That game is one of my favourite RPGs.
#47 Posted by JohnTheGamer (341 posts) -
Breakdown. I thought this was a fantastic game held back by some poor controls. The story was intense and very psychologically thrilling. Anyone who likes the work of Suda51 ought to check it out.
#48 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3645 posts) -
@Meteora: I had a friend who was really into that game, from what I remember when he was telling me about it it sounds like a game due for a current gen sequel
#49 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -
@addictedtopinescent: Nah I doubt it... Sony Computer Entertainment made it. So if it was a commercial or reception failure, why bother with the game?

@Meteora: No reason when F13 will be scratching basically the same JRPG itch
