What do you think a sequel would be like?

Ever since I finished Shadows of the damned, it became officially my favorite game. It really did fulfill all I'd like; well balanced horror/action, humor, simple story with very interesting turns... Even the romance was well done, and I particularly hate the romances in most games.

Besides, SoTD (<---Take the "o" out and have a laugh) really seems to me like the sort of game that could pull off a bunch of sequels, maybe the "generation" kind; with different characters, similar concept but different backstories and scenarios... So I really hope they consider that!

What do you think a sequel should be like? As I already made clear, I'd like different characters. Possibly a child that Paula and Garcia had, sounds cliche, but isn't the entire game a cliche made amazing? A kid with a rebelious attitude but no actual skill and barely any strenght, just thrown in there to get fucked over and find things out on his own... With Johnson. I mean, come on, we need Johnson.

I was so inspired by the idea that I actually decided to create a fanfiction (besides, the fact that there were no SoTD fics in that site made me even more eager to be the first) Check it if you feel like it. You're probably just as suspicious of fanfictions as I am, but i promise that I did my best to make it interesting: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8390150/1/Shadows_of_the_Damned_UNDERESTIMATE_ACT_11

So anyway, how would the "perfect" sequel be like for you? Please share!

I really enjoys SOTD so I would pretty much want more of that. If they could not have a taste my big boner section and get rid of those dumb being chased sequences I would be happy.

I found the combat to be kind of stale so hopefully they would improve the combat.

Co-op and boulder punching.

I just felt like the game needed more content, and unlockables so it can give people a reason to replay the game.

I doubt Suda would ever go back to a previous work(other than NMH). I don't think Shadows needs a sequel. I'd rather see them do something new instead.
