We’ve seen a few video games hit the market that probably should have just stayed as a standalone title. Though there have been a number of great video game titles that have released with no word if the story would continue. These are some of the video games we want to see the sequels for and let us know what video game you want to see a sequel of in the comments down below.
Beyond Good & Evil
First released in 2003 by Ubisoft, Beyond Good & Evil takes place in the future where our protagonist Jade takes up a photography job that helps captures photos of all the species in the area for a science museum. Jade is recruited by the IRIS Network to help discover the massive disappearances that have been going on as of late. Throughout the game we learn exactly what has been going on with the wide amount of disappearances, the secret hidden power within Jade but at the very end of the game we are left with a big question mark.
One of the main protagonists find himself growing a spore on his hand. whats with the spore? Guess we won’t know until a sequel releases but getting that sequel has been proven to be difficult. Fingers crossed for a release in this generation of consoles! Check out Beyond Good & Evil 2: Work-In-Progress Jade Concept Art, Looks Sunning, Some Major Improvements.
Heavy Rain isn’t all that old being released in 2010 by Quantic Dream. The game was unique as it performed through a series of quick time events. Playing as a psychological thriller, players were able to learn more about the complex storyline as they dive into four different character lives. Overall the game was praised highly and Quantic Dream went on to develop Beyond: Two Souls and are currently developing an upcoming unknown title for the PlayStation 4.
The Last of Us
Released just last year, The Last of Us was developed by Naughty Dog. The story follows Joel and Ellie as they make their way across a post-apocalyptic world with hopes of being able to cure the fungus like disease. The game and story was fantastic and it’s no wonder why Naughty Dog re-released the game for the PlayStation 4. I would love to see more of The Last of Us world in a sequel, seriously if you have not yet played The Last of Us, what are you waiting for!?
Red Dead Redemption
Red Dead Redemption got a bit of flack when it first released. Most gamers were fast to sway this title away stating that Rockstar just released Grand Theft Auto again just with horses but if you played the game, you would know there was much more than what met the eye. Released in 2010, Red Dead Redemption was set in the old west where protagonist John Marston is forced in helping the government to track down his old gang and take them out. Filled with a story of one mans redemption to end his past life, memorable characters, a beautiful world and a fun campaign, I sincerely wish Rockstar will announce or hint at Red Dead Redemption 2 soon!
In 2011 Rockstar released a detective style video game known as L.A. Noire. Set in the past around the 1950s, players will take on the role of Officer Cole Phelps as he rises through the ranks. Though further into the ranks, cases become much harder to break. L.A. Noire ranked high across the board with several video game critics and there have been hints to a sequel but nothing has been officially announced yet.
Okay, okay not really a sequel but lets wrap up Half-Life Valve. The development team last brought out Half-Life 2 back in 2004. Like every game on this list, the title was praised and the gamers just wanted to know how the story ends. In which phase of development is Half-Life 3 is less known, it makes the level of anticipation for a great video game title at an all time high for many of us. One thing is for sure, there are a few gamer generations awaiting the third installment of Half-Life having played the originals to re-releases and even fan mod titles of past releases.
