Title: Most Wanted Sequel?
Post by: TL on April 14, 2012, 18:42:07 PM
So what game do you most wish got a sequel that didn't?

For me I really really wish Sega had done a 2D Streets Of Rage 4 on the Saturn that would have been bloody awesome :'(

I would have loved a 2D sequel to Simon The Sorcerer 2. Simon the Sorcerer 3D is one of the worst games I've ever played.

I'd love for Konami to change it's mind and do Suikoden 6. They apparently stopped the Suikoden franchise because of poor sales but they were such interesting and fun RPGs.

 The main problem with the sales was that although Suikoden 1 & 2 were great worldwide sellers, Suikoden 3 wasn't very good and only available in the US & Japan and Suikoden 4 was an improvement but not great by a long shot.

 By the time they got back to something close to the original format in Suikoden 5, which was pretty damned good, people seemed to have already lost faith in the series and stopped buying.

If Konami were to get it's head out of the sand and do another game in a similar vein to Suikoden 1, 2 & 5 i'm pretty sure it would be a sure fire seller. The suikoden games were without a doubt far better than the majority of today's RPGs in terms of gameplay, style and storyline.

Burning Rangers dammit! The Saturn could barely handle the concept but it was a brilliant idea and would work really well on the Wii.

Suikoden was the first RPG available for the PS1 in the UK. Suikoden 2 was also PS1 and the remaining sequels were all on PS2. Not as retro as most games but due to being on the PS1 & PS2 but i would still count it as such.

Ah right! Thanks!

(PS2 isn't retro though  ;) )

Another one from the Saturn would be Guardian Heroes, one of my favourite games ever - such a shame they never released a sequel on the Saturn or Dreamcast.

Just commented on that game in another thread. A sequel would be very cool!

I'd really love a sequel to Ristar. It's a game that desperately needs one, especially with how many good 2D platformers there have been recently. I'm not entirely sure if I'd have Sega develop it themselves, though.

Also, I want a sequel to Primal Rage. I'd have the guys behind the new Mortal Kombat do it, since they've done such a great job with it. It was an interesting game for the time, with some awesome characters. It didn't play all that badly, either, barring the really annoying way you pulled off special moves. You basically had to break your fingers.

Primal Rage sounds like a winner. I mean Primal Rage II.

I know its not all that retro but I have always dreamed of a sequel to Panzer Dragoon Saga PROPER and obviously Shenmue 3. I know Panzer Dragoon Orta follows on from it but its not a proper sequel, I'd love to see another RPG styled game come out. And Shenmue 3 is a must have, even if they just do it on old Naomi equivalent hardware to keep the cost down no one would mind/care!!

Atari did make a Primal Rage sequel but never released it. There are arcade boards of it out there but it isn't on MAME because it apparentlt contained proprietary hardware that cannot be emulated yet.

Primal Rage II/KI. Looks like a Killer Instinct crossover.

Suikoden 3 was actually really good, it just had some iffy music and visuals. Once you get past that, there was a good, deep game in there.

Suikoden 4 is considered the weak link and rightly so. While improved visually, the plot never seems to go anywhere.

Wouldn't mind a 6th. Would make a perfect 3DS game imo.

I would love a new Suikoden too. I never tried the 5th one so I guess I should track it down some day. Enjoyed all the other ones though, even 3 and 4.

Another game I really wish had got a sequel is I-War on the Jaguar.

I would have loved to have seen a second game with more textures and a better frame rate. I love everything about this game from the Tron theme to the excellent music, it's definately one of the most under rated games on the Jaguar.

First of all I love you guys who mentioned Suikoden. Such an awesome series. 2 is my fav RPG ever; but the others were good too. 3 was also very good, just some strange design choices like having to visit the same places again and again with different characters, and monsters would be different depending on the character level. Still a strong game. I'd murder to see the story concluded, but it doesn't look like it will happen.

The PSP Suikoden seems somewhat promising; another world again like tierkreis, but it looks and feels more like Suikoden again.

Sadly even if a new Suikoden is made it is unlikely to reach western shores. I have a friend at Konami Europe, and the master plan is to only release about 3 or 4 physical games each year; everything Metal Gear, Castlevania and PES is safe, the rest will most likely be download only (if even that). Suikoden PSP was not even made available as download on these shores, so... :(


Another game I'd love to see a sequel of is Landstalker. My favourite Zelda-like Action-Adventure (moreso than Zelda itself).

About Primal Rage 2:
Uhm, could it be that Atari Games forgot the minor special aspect of PR that is that you play freakin' DINOSAURS? Seriously, with human characters it's no big loss imo.

Post by: Alberto 2K on December 02, 2012, 13:59:52 PM
I never played any Suikoden but Landstalker is a great game indeed, I have fond memories of it.

+1 for I-War 2! :)

Personally I would love to see a secuel of Heart of Darkness and a decent remake of Star Raiders with modern technologies not the crappy SR released last year.

I think Sega should resurect more of their old super scaler games like they did with Afterburner and Outrun.

I mean who wouldn't want to play new versions of Galaxy Force, Super Hang-On, Space Harrier, Power Drift and Enduro Racer?  8)

I would love to see a 3rd Xenon game with a kick arse soundtrack.

And speaking of shooters I really wish Zarlor Mercenary on the Lynx had got a sequel too.  :'(

This needed a sequel, badly!  I don't know why there was never a Crystal Castles II!  There was so much potential for Bentley!

Being a big fan of into the screen space shooters I would love to see a 3rd Galaxy Force game, as well as sequels to Soul Star, Star Blade and another Silpheed game too.

There actually is a sequel to Silpheed on the PS2, haven't played it though so I have no idea if it's any good or not. Looks pretty good in this video.

I vaguely seemed to remember there was, which is why I said another - because a modern remake would be great too. This genre really seems to have been ignored in recent years, shame.

I've been deeply saddened that Treasures of Tarmin was never released for the 2600.

I guess it's a personal problem as reactions are usually pretty tepid when I start talking about making a spiritual successor. :p
