Astonishing Sequels in Game Series

As I have no doubt made clear in a previous list of mine, there are plenty of franchises with lackluster sequels under their belts. Perhaps they didn't quite live up to expectations, or maybe they strayed too far from the core game's unique features. Fortunately, in many cases, these catastrophes can be easily avoided, as evidenced by the following Astonishing Sequels in Game Series. If only all sequels could be as enriched and advanced as these titles.

Please note that I often periodically update my lists from time to time, with this one being no exception. Also, the quality of the game's predecessor need not apply to any of the games on this list. This means I'll can potentially put sequels to terrible games on this list as well.
