Ever since the release of Borderlands 3, fans have been rejoicing for a game that they have been waiting for some time after the “pre-sequel.” There are plenty of video games that have been sitting on dusted shelves that deserve a new title. Many of them are fan demanded and deservingly so. The outcries for game sequels have been going on for a long time with the list we have.
Some games on here already have sequels, but they left us on a huge cliffhanger that the wait is excruciatingly painful. How long must we wait to get another title from these video game franchises? Hopefully, sooner than we expect. Here are ten games that need a sequel!
10 Games That Need A Sequel
Valve makes incredible masterpieces that offer intriguing storylines and fantastic gameplay. Portal 2 is a huge step up from its first incarnation, and it excels as a sequel. Its pacing, writing, and inclusion of cooperative mode are among one of the game’s highlights.
We honestly want to see more of GLaDOS and Wheatley and how their story continues. It has been almost ten years since Portal 2 released, and we need a sequel.
Hearing the news that a sequel to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II being canceled is extremely heartbreaking. But still, there could be a chance to bring this series back into the spotlight due to fan demand and how fantastic it is as a Star Wars entity.
The imagination of role-playing in a Star Wars game is an outstanding concept that would be welcomed again with a sequel to this beloved series. Will Disney bring light into this series? It would be a dream come true.
Okami is one of those rare gems that has an incredible concept for what it is as a game. Being centered around Japanese folklore and history, this is a treat for those heavily interested in Japanese culture. Capcom truly gave us an incredibly underrated one-of-a-kind game.
Even sales were not so good despite critical acclaim. Fans have been waiting for anything new for a home console release and also the director, Hideki Kamiya has plans for a sequel. Unfortunately, that was last mentioned in 2016.
Insomniac Games’ Sunset Overdrive is somewhat a love child of a few games like Jet Set Radio and Prince of Persia, and it is an amazing experience. It can be considered a spiritual successor to Saints Row even though it is not by the same developer. Unlike Saints Row, this game has no sequel and left us on such a cliffhanger that we need one.
And unlike most developers, Insomniac Games has expressed interest in making a sequel to this fun and zany game. But with Insomniac Games being acquired by Sony recently, a sequel for Sunset Overdrive is not a priority at the moment. There is a chance, but we hope it won’t be too long of a wait.
Jet Set Radio Future
At times, there are reasons why sequels for beloved game series are wanted. Jet Set Radio Future hinted at another sequel in the last cutscene, and after all these years, we still have no sequel. Plus, this series has a unique art style and gameplay that was unlike any other game at the time.
There were rays of light for another Jet Set Radio, but they have been turned down by Sega, in the case of Austin-based Dinosaur Games. It has been almost 20 years since Jet Set Radio Future has been released, so we hope and pray that Sega will bring this series back to life someday.
Brütal Legend is a breath of fresh air for a game that is an action-adventure and real-time strategy game. Some gamers say that celebrities should not be voice actors in video games, but this one proves them wrong with Jack Black and many others.
There has been both fan demand and interest from Tim Schafer, the game director of Brütal Legend. So there is a chance to give this game another chance with a sequel. There is just something about a metal-inspired universe that can attract metal fans and gamers for a possible future title.
Team Fortress 2
Before Blizzard’s Overwatch would become a worldwide phenomenon, Valve Corporation had its own multiplayer first-person shooter Team Fortress, which would then get a sequel that everyone knows and loves. The character classes are unique, and Valve even released video shorts of them, showcasing their backstories and personalities.
The game has aged very well despite being 12 years since its first release. While there are still many players thanks to currently being free-to-play, there is no doubt that a sequel has been begged for. Rumors have been speculated, but not confirmed by Valve.
This collaboration between Nintendo and Square has been a favorite for both Mario fans and JRPG fans. Super Mario RPG is one of those games that is very influential for being a crossover in terms of genre and game series. While it is disappointing that this game does not have a sequel yet, it would bring titles like Paper Mario to life.
Since Square Enix and Nintendo have made more collaborations with Cloud being in Smash and older Final Fantasy games being on the Nintendo Switch, there has never been a huge demand for a Super Mario RPG 2. We guarantee that gamers will be very excited when two famous and beloved game developers come together to create a much-needed sequel.
The concept of Pokémon Snap is something that still has high regard even after all these years. With many more Pokémon in the Pokédex, how is there not a sequel to this game? The Wii U had the perfect opportunity to have a Pokémon Snap sequel, but due to its low sales, it would not be able to exceed Nintendo’s expectations.
The sequel can be a graphical update to the first game with more Pokémon and locations, and fans would still be happy with it. There are just a ton of ideas for a sequel that it is a crime how there is no sequel yet. Maybe Nintendo will treat us with one after Pokémon Sword and Shield’s release.
There has been a huge fan demand, memes have been made stating that Half-Life 3 is confirmed, and the wait has been agonizing. Half-Life 2 arguably has one of the biggest cliffhangers in all of gaming, and there has to be a sequel to tie all ends together. Valve has been a huge teaser as three of its iconic and beloved games do not have another sequel.
Half-Life 2 has been without a sequel in over ten years. Hopefully, Valve is still thinking about its fans and will deliver this long-awaited sequel in some unique fashion in the future, if there will be one for this series’ fate.
