Forgotten Games that should have sequel

[ Edited ]
39 replies 198 views Edited Apr 14, 2013

Game companies make sequels to crappy games all of the time. There are so many awesome games that have been forgotten. They need to make sequels to some of these. I have a separate bank account to just save money to buy video games of old series that I think should get sequels. DON'T MAKE ME WASTE ALL OF MY MONEY GAME DESIGNERS! Here are classic video games that deserve a modern sequel.

 

Duck Hunt

Duck Hunt created the entire genre of shooting games and then disappeared. There is so much more to the story that has been left untold. Why are the ducks flying around waiting to be shot? Why won't that stupid dog stop laughing at me? Maybe I didn't shoot the ducks because I have compassion you dumb dog!

 

Skitchin'

skitchin

 

Skitchin' might be the only video game ever created that your parents should be upset about. It's a racing game from the creators of Road Rash where you race on a freeway and grab on the back of cars to gain momentum. It's probably a good thing that this fun **bleep** game didn't get super popular or we'd have to deal with the 24 hour news cycle warning us about the dangers of Skitchin' as if anyone would actually be dumb enough to try it. Okay. One person would probably be dumb enough to try it, but that's just Darwin at work.

 

River City Ransom

river city ransom

 

River City Ransom was the first time I ever played an action RPG. Before I played this game, I always thought of RPGs as being turn based. Then I realized that it totally would be cool to get to upgrade your dude in a side scroller. It's sort of shocking that this has never had a sequel ever. Hopefully Rockstar will take over the license and blow our minds with awesomeness.

 

Pong

pong machine

 

Without Pong we wouldn't really have video games. Pong should take place in some kind of Mad Max Thunderdome where the loser of every match gets sentenced to death. At the very least we should get some sort of Pong mini game in the next Fallout.

 

Star Fox

star fox

 

Every Star Fox game has ruled. Why has there not been a current generation Star Fox game? Is Nintendo ashamed of the series because it encourages furries? I think it's worth a few gross people dressed like animals doing each other to get the opportunity to play as the greatest animal pilots in the galaxy. Also, StarFox 64 for the 3DS is NOT a sequel.

 

Chrono Trigger

chrono trigger

 

This game had the dream team of the creator of Final Fantasy, the creator of Dragon Quest, and the creator of Dragonball as the creators of Chrono Trigger. If they could get these three together again to make a new game in the Chrono Trigger series then fan boy heads would explode just at the announcement. Plus it'd probably be a sweet game for the rest of us with unexploded heads.

 

ToeJam and Earl

toejam and earl

 

This game was an insane sleeper success. It did really poor numbers when it first came out, but eventually ToeJam and Earl became unofficial mascots of SEGA because this game was so loved by fans. The sequel was sort of lame. I think they should get the original team together to keep the humor intact and then give it a totally awesome modern update. Preferably one that doesn't involve any sort of Panic on anywhere called Funkotron.

 

Ducktales

ducktales

 

Ducktales was one of the most beloved games on the NES. The gameplay is like if Mario and Megaman were more greedy. You go from level to level collecting diamonds and treasure. I mostly want this to get a modern sequel so that they have a mini game where you get to swim through piles of gold coins. I'd finally get to feel what it was like to be successful.

 

Earthworm Jim

earthworm jim

 

Earthworm Jim was the first game I ever played that actually made me laugh out loud, before even Rayman. It's rare when a current generation game actually tickles my funny bone. There is a huge audience for another Earthworm Jim game. They just need to make it. I would buy it and pretty much everyone I know would buy it too. That's at least three people right there. MAKE THIS GAME!

 

Mutant League Football

mutant league football

 

The only thing better than playing sports games is playing sports games that feature mutants killing each other. Mutant League tried to expand the brand in to hockey, but it just didn't catch on. Madden has such a hold on the sports licenses that people are dying to have a really fun alternative. This alternative lets you throw dynamite at the half time show. It's the other white meat of football games.

 

What other games did I miss that you want to have a sequel?

I could play PONG all day long, simple but so addicting, part of the birth of video games.

I agree with Star Fox and Chrono Trigger.  Star Fox 64 imo was one of the best games I've ever played.  Even multiplayer mode at the time was good.  I don't know why they don't make anymore sequels to it but we get a new Mario game ever six months...   A current Wii-U version would definitely convince me to get a wii-U.

 

Chrono Trigger had a sequel for PS1 called Chrono Cross.  Square-Enix or squeenix I call it never listens to what people want.  They continue to develop garbage.  I have no clue why they're not bankrupt yet.  I guess they should thank Tomb Raider for that, even though it wasn't their original ip.

 

I would like to see a real sequel to Parasite Eve.  Not the handheld crap like 3rd b-day but a full retail current/next gen game.  But this is square we're talking about so I wouldn't hold my breath lol.

Freedom Fighters was one of the best games of the PS2 era. That fact that it hasn't received a sequel is downright criminal

River City Ransom! It's on my list of remakes/updates for PSN. I hope WayForward develops it.

 

Starfox does have a sequel but it never got released. You can find the rom for it though and even buy SNES carts that have the rom loaded on it to play on your SNES.

 

Duck Tales is being remade in HD

 

Earthworm Jim does have a sequel

 

Chrono Cross is more a sequel to Radical Dreamers than Chrono Trigger. I'm not sure how a true sequel to CT would work.

 

As for games I'd like to see a sequel to, hmm, I guess the remaining 3 games of Xenosaga.
