EGM Reader Response: If You Could Have a Sequel to Any Game What Would it Be?

Question: If You Could Have a Sequel to Any Game What Would it Be?

The power is in your hands today, you have been granted one gaming wish. You can create a sequel to any game you desire no matter what console it’s from–Super Nintendo, PSOne, Xbox 360, or any other in between–the choice is yours. It doesn’t have to be a game that never got a sequel, it could be a third or even fourth entry into a franchise if you wish. The question is; what game will you choose?

I had a think about this question and it has to be The Legend of Dragoon on PSOne. I spent more hours than I care to admit playing this game when I was younger, and was shocked that it never got a sequel. Apparently one was in pre-production, but it sadly got cancelled.

Simply let us know your thoughts in the comments below. We will be updating this post throughout the day showcasing the best comments. So, be sure to check back to see if yours has been chosen!

What You Said

Aaron Leclair: “Either WET or Ron Gilberts Monkey Island 3. Don’t get me wrong I loved Curse of Monkey Island, I just want to see how Ron would have done it, then again maybe I don’t want to know The Secret of Monkey Island™, so maybe I’ll just stick with WET which could really use a sequel.”

Emmet Pilsworth: “Star wars battlefront 2(one of the best star wars games), Chrono series(although not in the current square’s hands), Psi Ops(really fun game with a lot of creativity available to the player), Diddy kong racing(better than Mario kart in my eyes because of it’s variety), Crimson Skies, Lost Odyssey, Shenmue, Legacy of Kain, Vampire the Masquerade: bloodlines(one of the best Rpgs I have ever played and it has so many elements that today’s rpgs could benefit from let alone the combat was way ahead of it’s time) and so many more.”

Julián Caraci: “Shadow of the colossus. That game is easily the best game that ever existed, the simplicity of the narrative and the enormous landscape, having only 16 battles, all different from each other, all that as boring as it sounds was the most epic thing that ever happened to gaming.”

Cory Griffiths: ”Final Fantasy 7, although I don’t think it could be pulled off.”

Josh Schnell: “Chrono Trigger/Chross…Chrono Trigger was the ‘Dream Project’ and Chrono Cross was definitely fantastic. However, there are so many people who want a current/next-gen time-travel RPG! “If people want a sequel, they should buy more!” – Shinji Hashimoto. Well, they sold almost a million copies of CT DS within a few months, not to mention the sales of CT on the virtual console and PSN. Fans are STILL making fan-made games despite the cease & desist orders. It is obvious that fans have been dreaming of this sequel! We bought more like you said Mr. Hashimoto…where is our sequel?”

Kendrick Johnson: “EOE: Eve of Extinction, The Suffering Ties That Bind, WET, or Ninety-Nine Nights 2. I’d probably prefer another WET.”

Benjamin Thorkman: “Golden Sun 4. While the third one left much to be desired, they can’t leave it at such a large cliffhanger. And if history repeats itself, we might need to wait 7 years again for another sequel.”

Mikey Tabor: Star Wars Battlefront 2 needs a sequel most definitely as does Legend of Dragoon.

Theresa DeLucci: “Red Dead Redemption, if a different voice actor was used for Jack. I loved the Western landscape, the hunting, the original music, the iconic characters and strong storytelling. The death of the mythic West and the birth of American civilization surely has more than just one bloody story.”

David Ellis: “Definitely The Legend of Dragoon. One of the best RPG’s I’ve ever played, the battle system was flawless as was the Story.”

Ivan Erl Elymar Cayaban: “Ni no kuni.”

Kyle Regallie: “I would have to say Legend of Dragoon or Lost Odyssey they had such amazing story lines that captivated anyone who played that even people who hate on video games would like these.”

John McGowan: “Shadowrun the FPS needs a sequel. It was a very imaginative game with originality, but it lacked a story and depth but in turn was crazy addictive. It wasn’t perfect, but it was promising.”

Connor Wood: “Final Fantasy 8. So many unanswered questions and lore left undiscovered. Would love to go back to that world.”

Jenna Jane: “I used to have dreams where a sequel to Conker’s Bad Fur Day was on it’s way…”

Matthew Boros: “Legend of Dragoon, Lunar 2: Eternal Blue (my girlfriend at the time loved the music to the first 2 games), Star Wars Battlefront (bring those to either the current playstation or xbox or rerelease them on the PS4/Xbox720) Star Wars Battlefront III and everybody’s asking for a Battlefield Bad Company 3. I would also love to see all the most popular maps from the Call of Duty series complete with the vehicles/gun turrets intact bundled together into an expansion pack compatible with MW3 and BO II and MW4 and call it Armageddon.”

Richard Purdy Jr.: “Psychonauts, for sure. One of my all time favorites when I was a kid. I’d hate to see that franchise go to waste.”

Camden Howard: “Knights of the Old Republic 3! For Heaven’s Sake!”

Andy Dobreff: “Alpha Protocol. Even though the game was hated by a lot of people, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The elements of RPG were done very well. The only real problem with the game was the gameplay execution. I think a sequel would actually REALLY make up for the small blunder of the first.”

Maxim Penneman: “BLACK, the PS2 game, needs a sequel!”

Ken Nope: “I’d like to see a direct sequel to Skyward Sword, and I’d also like to see a direct sequel to Final Fantasy 4, which takes place not long after the events of the original story.. None of this 14 years later stuff that used the original game as a backdrop.”

Brandon Derrick Hnetka: “I would go for Legend of Dragoon or Last Remnant Not only did Last Remnant have potential it had a great story with some unique stories and a very deep battle system I Enjoyed very much, simply just needed some more polish.”
