Sometimes a game leaves us hanging and we secretly wonder if that really is the end or if there could be a chance for more? This is a list of games that desperately need a sequel, a continuation of the story or the intense action and emotion felt in the previous game. These games I greatly enjoyed playing and I hope to see sequels so I can get more.
Beyond Good and Evil
Number two, where are you? Beyond Good and Evil 2 was announced way back in May 2008. That was five years ago. In recent news, it was announced that the second installment is still being worked on and promises a release. I’ve seen leaked screenshots and short teaser trailers and the game looks absolutely amazing. The characters have been transformed from a cartoony art style to a more serious and realistic appearance. I really hope that promise is kept, because I am dying to get my hands on a copy.
Bulletstorm, to me, is all about the kill. How you kill your enemies gains you more points based on creativity and pain. Using your special weapons, you can throw your enemies onto spikes, over edges, even into electric wires and watch them fry. This is what makes this game so fantastic. The story isn’t all that bad either. I would love to see a sequel to this game, something that continues the madness of the kill action and all of the twisted weapons that help you do it.
Killing Floor is my second favorite zombie shooter out there, right under the Left for Dead series. Just like Left for Dead, I think Killing Floor needs a sequel. I mean, I want an upgrade in weapons and zombie types. I want a campaign mode rather than all online multiplayer gameplay. I want it to blow the first game out of the water. Killing Floor is an amazing zombie shooter, it just needs to introduce something new now.
Plants vs. Zombies
Plants vs. Zombies has everyone crazed. No one can get enough of zombie-eating plants and those funky power-ups. Why not make a sequel to this success? The story could become more in depth and there could be a whole new line or zombies and power-ups. Because the first game was so successful, I don’t see why creating a second game would be unsuccessful by any means. PopCap actually announced that a second installment is coming late spring 2013, whenever that is. I am predicting a summer release for the game.
The Darkness 2
I played through the first two games in The Darkness series. I loved them both, the first one more than the second one. The second game ended with a complete cliffhanger and I hope this means a third Darkness is in the works. I kind of sat there when the game ended thinking, “That’s it?” Then again, with the way the game ended, it could just mean that Jackie Estacado is damned forever. I refuse to believe that.
