Well the crash bandicoot games after 3 were pretty terrible.

I suppose that SW:The force unleashed didn't deserve any sequel. Most of the times they're making sequels just for money X_X And the case with SW:TFU is the same - it basicaly has the same things like the first game but more of them, hyh.

I was going to bring this one up as well.

It would be perfectly understandable if they come up with a new game after every release of a new console, but these series don't need sequels every year.

I have to disagree, although it is true that maybe they don't need to release the game every year, it would be nice to release the next installment maybe every other year as rosters are constantly changing.

I also have to say any CoD game after CoD 4.

What if instead of that they just actually made a new fucking game?

I really, really wish developers would focus more on follow-ups than on sequels (or that publishers/consumers would allow them to). It just seems like total wasted potential when you have some of the brightest minds in the mainstream of the medium, able to work with a triple-A budget, and then instead of seeing what new and exciting ideas they can cook up, you just have them remake their last big game only now it's in the sky instead of underwater.

It's a really disappointing cycle, and we're missing out on a lot of potentially great, unique games because of it.

Final Fantasy. It should have stopped at X. Someone should really read a dictionary about the world 'final'.

Heh, I was going to bring up Mega Man X. But also every other spin off from any original series shouldn't get their own sequels. It's just too confusing.

Also, Legend of Zelda. I know, people most likely are like "WTF?" now, but I never liked any of those games... and the timeline is just fucked up beyond any hope anyway.

Oh btw, one more game that really deserves a sequel is SiN. They started a series of episodes but it was canceled due to budgetary issues right before the second one. I remember the first episode being great though, would've liked to see more of those!

I haven't played that since I was a kid, but I rmember liking it back then.

I still insist that MVC2 was better, in both gameplay and roster. My main team was always Guile, Jin, and Wolverine.

I'm really enjoying Crysis 2. I'm looking forward to playing Crysis 3, even though I heard what happens to Alcatraz and I think it's bullshit. I agree with Fable, though. The first one was better. And FFX-2 is just baffling. I understand what you're saying about Jak 2, but I liked it...at least until my copy stopped working.

I wish they ported that to PS2. I wanted to play it.

They could just release a roster update as DLC. It's way cheaper and more convenient for gamers than having to buy a new, $50 game every year.

But again, as long as people keep throwing cash at them I guess I can't really blame them.

What you're saying is true, but there is still a good segment of gamers who entirely play offline, and can't access that DLC in the first place. Not to mention the fact that roster changes in sports can be rather frequent, thus the constant amount of new DLC can get borderline absurd.

I get the feeling that people didn't complained about yearly sports games until DLC became widely available, though I still maintain my opinion that people who have the current sport game are dopes for buying next year's game, unless they're a collector.

But again, as long as people keep throwing cash at them I guess I can't really blame them.

If it's what the people want, then they'll keep milking the franchise for what it's worth, I don't agree with it sometimes, but there isn't much anyone can do about it without resorting to empty bitching.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

The entire sequel to it was just the developers admitting that they fucked up big-time on the gameplay side of the original. While, at the same time, not really doing much better with said sequel either.

Final Fantasy 7 will forever be the last of the awesome fun awesome good sequels of Final Fantasy...rest in peace final fantasy

I'm not sure but I definitely think Spyro didn't deserve more sequels. Now, I know Hero's Tail was cool and all but i think Enter the Dragonfly was just awkward.

Yeah they do, the rosters get updated every year with new draftees and EA actually does make a good effort of trying to improve each yearly installment even if they aren't always successful.

Most people who buy EA sports games don't buy any other games or buy very few other games so the yearly releases are just fine for them.

I didn't play Final Fantasy's after VII, well parts of 8 I played but got bored quickly because when I was playing it I felt like I should have been playing FFVII instead but I heard that Final Fantasy's after VII copied off characters such as Cloud and Sephiroth. Don't know if that is true or not, but if it is, then it's basically Square admitting that FFVII is the Final Fantasy that attracted Fans.

You know what game deserved a sequel? Ristar. SEGA fans all over begging for him to be in All-stars Racing Transformed and he was the fucking flag guy. Fuck you, SEGA,

In regards to the actual question, Alex Kidd, but back then they were kind of desperate to try and create a popular mascot so I can't really blame them for that one.
