Games that should have stopped at one sequel!!

Post by daverage » Thu May 17, 2007 5:51 am

Hey everyone, well topic for the week from me is...
What games should have stopped at either no sequels or just the one!
For instance do we need more Resident Evil games?

How about last ninja 3? was in it needed?

Tell me what you think :)

the completely awful renegade 3.
renegade and target renegade were amazing. but then they went one step too far, rubbish controls, and fighting dinosaurs?

oh and while i'm talking fighting games,
double dragon 3.
oh dear oh dear, jerky movent, stupid shop to buy weapons and moves,
odd numerical energy counter thing.

Definately. Anyway, without more than one sequel we wouldn't have reached the magnificent RE4 (and RE5)!!!!!

I think Tomb Raider has ran it's course - there's not much to add to it as a game.

Ridge Racer is the same.

Fifa - create a decent game of football or just give up now.

Call of Duty must run out of ideas/scenarios soon.

I hated the 3D aspect of it, so many 2D games just don't work in 3D, quick way to make some money just like any other pet hate... film licensed games

To bloody right! That is possibly one of the worst fighting games ever! The collision detection was borderline insane........but dont forget Super Double Dragon on the SNES, that was pretty bad too![/quote]

Double Dragon 3 was very poor while Double Dragon 2 was average. They should have just stopped at Double Dragon 2 to avoid further dissapointment.
