Best Sequel Ever

AmatheAmathe Member EpicPosts: 4,677
The idea is to choose among games where the sequel is/was better than the original, and then select the one where it was the most improved. 

Expansions and patches don't count. It has to be a whole new game.

I nominate GW2. It was a million times better than GW1.

    Uncharted 2 I thought was better than original

    Most improved goes to Division 2

    Diablo 2, and I don’t even know where to start listing the improvements...

    Honourable mention goes out to Street Fighter 2, a hundred times better then the first in every area mentionable.

    Kyleran on yours sincerely 


    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    I agree on GW2 being much better than the first one, simply because the first one wasn't a MMORPG at all.

    You'd need categories if you want to make such a list...

    For instance...

    Best RPG sequel: Ultima VII: The Black Gate.
    Best adventure game sequel: Rise of the Tomb Raider.
    Best MMORPG sequel: Elder Scrolls Online (to me one notch better than GW2).
    Best action RPG sequel: Diablo III.
    Best space game sequel: Elite Dangerous.

    Etc...

    Yet I loved D1 and disliked D2, go figure.

    Perhaps the novelty wore off.

    Divinity Original Sin 2. I only got to chapter 3 of the Divinity Original Sin before throwing in the towel. I can not see that happening with the sequel. It improved on the first game in every possible way.

    Well D1 released at a time when RPGs were in a bit of a rut, so it was viewed as as revitalizing the genre.

    Of course then many said it wasn't a proper CRPG ....and the ARPG was born.

    I liked WoW much more than Warcraft 3 - which I also liked and played a lot, but there at least I made some food/toilet breaks.

    I'm not certain I have a sequel that was substantially better than the original.   Maybe, Civilization 2 being better than Civilization 1.  *Maybe*.  The original X-Com was epic, X-Com: Terror from the Deep didn't add much.  Diablo and Diablo II were entirely too similar.  All the Might&Magic series were all the same, with little improvement at all between the titles.

    My candidate:  Imperium Galactica II.  Better story lines, less hand holding.  But still only marginally better.



    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    Masters of Orion 2!

    Morrowind as compared to the Elder Scrolls games that came before it.

    Galactic Civilizations II

    Of course now I want to try Gothic 2 as BlueTurtle says it's amazing. Is it? IS IT?!?!!? :o

    Have not played it in years but remember it being very good.  Definitely worth the playthrough.  Think you can pick it up for around 10 bucks on steam.

    GW2 is not a real sequel.  They two different genres. Using this logic WoW is the greatest sequel since it was a sequel to Warcraft 3....

    My vote goes to Mass Effect 2. Testament to this is the fact that ME 1 didn't age well if one wants to play it today movement feels clunky, graphics do look dated and the same goes for character progression; while the second chapter can be easily enjoyed even with today's standards.
