    DAoC deserves a PROPER sequel.  Not the trimmed down,  quick production joke that we're being offered.

     

    That's my vote.

    Playing: H1Z1, The Crew, Defiance, APB:Reloaded
    Mourning: World of Darkness, Vanguard, City of Heroes

    There's a couple of games on that list I haven't played, but otherwise... this. :)

    Have you played Legend of Grimrock, by the way? It's very reminiscent of Lands of Lore or Wizardry. Amazing indie game.

    Legend of Grimrock

    LOL, I see what you did thar!

    I felt FO3 and FONV were alright attempts.  I did put ALOT of time in FO3 also.  But I do see where you're coming from.  Despite Bethesda's best intentions, there's things that the move to 3D + FPS did that simply couldn't replicate from FO1 & FO2.  The text descriptions, especially during combat (of all places), were potentially quite hilarious or gruesome, on top of the great death animations.

    "Bloody Mess" perk was well worth it in FO1 & FO2, just to see the cooler "splat-splat-splat" and horrible ways to kill someone.

    Now, as for some titles / franchises that I think rate a proper sequel:

    Baldur's Gate 2

    Battlefield 2 (don't get me started on BF3)

    Battlefield 2142 (after seeing BF3, I'm worried about BF2143)

    Rainbow 6 Raven Shield (actual R6 sequels strayed away from the original Rainbow 6 / Rogue Spear / Raven Shield style).

    European Air War

    Pacific Air War

    Star Wars "X-Wing" series (X-Wing, TIE Fighter, X-Wing vs TIE Fighter, X-Wing: Alliance line of space games)

    "I have only two out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (First Lieutenant Clifton B. Cates, US Marine Corps, Soissons, 19 July 1918)

    The one and only "Planescape Torment", greatest of all games created!

    Yes! I want a Triple A Shadowrun game as well. I hope these Shadowrun kickstarters do well enough to get the attention of people with money, so I can get an AAA release in the future.

    I get the feeling that Catalyst Games is considering backing a Shadowrun game.  I play MWO and part of my email preferences asks if I want to be informed of any upcomming Shadowrun products.

    While that isn't any definate proof it is certainly more incouraging than nothing.

    Hogs of War.

    Colony Wars.

    G-Police.

    Vagrant Story.

    Parasite Eve.

    Dino Crisis.  (A reboot rather than a sequel, so we can ignore the second and third games.)

    Nightmare Creatures.

    Urban Chaos.

    Tenchu.

    Warzone 2100.

     

    [EDIT] The Planescape sequel met its funding target in a matter of hours, be interesting to see what they do with it.

    Why are people mentioning games like fallout, elder scrolls, and tropico, when we already know they are going to get more games in the series? I don't think that's what the OP meant... I believe his intent was to bring up long forgotten (at least by the makers) games that should be revived with a sequal... I could be wrong, but it seems more likely than him starting a thread about IF we are going to see a TES6.

    'Sandbox MMO' is a PTSD trigger word for anyone who has the experience to know that anonymous players invariably use a 'sandbox' in the same manner a housecat does.


    When your head is stuck in the sand, your ass becomes the only recognizable part of you.


    No game is more fun than the one you can't play, and no game is more boring than one which you've become familiar.

    Start with a billion dollars and make an MMO.

    I loved MxO for the longest time, but it eventually died an SOE death.

    If another company could take the IP and make a legit Matrix MMO I would absolutely flip.

    More martial arts, more guns, more hacking, and more sunglasses.

    YES, MXO was amazing. Sadly I only discovered it about a month before it got shut down :( :(

    If we are talking single player games, the 2 on my list were done last year - XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and Syndicate

     MXo one game I really wish I had tried over all those years.  Oh well.

    Kid Icarus... and no, the Gameboy and shitty Wii titles don't truly count.

    Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines (R.I.P. Troika)

    Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura (R.I.P. Troika)

    Jade Empire

    Skies of Arcadia

    Master of Magic (R.I.P. Microprose)

    Sid Meier's Pirates!

    Crimson Skies (This one might actually happen.)

    Bard's Tale (the 2004 version)

     

    As far as MMOs go, the only titles I've played whose spirtual successors I'd be interested in exploring would be Asheron's Call and SWG, but I haven't really been a fan of either SOE or Turbine for years.
