5 Games That Need A Sequel
Last year I put out two articles related to remakes and franchises that I would love to see revived, well I missed a few. This time I’m talking about those games you either played and have never forgotten about or heard about from a friend who well, can’ shut up about it. Some franchises don’t need sequels, others (I won’t mention names [cough COD]) need to seriously re-evaluate what they’re doing with themselves. These games however, well let’s just say they need some new life, badly, and a new game from any of them would just make my life a whole lot better. I realise something is always missing from these sorts of lists and before you say anything, make sure to check my two previous articles for a game I have mentioned before; like of course I’ve already talked about the Playstation 1’s Final Fantasy games. And yes, I realise many of these games have spiritual sequels and one is already sequel. That said, here’s the games I feel need a sequel:
Whether you’re a fan of Square Enix’s latest outings into the Final Fantasy franchise or not, you have to give The World Ends With You a try; all you need is a DS that is. It presents a unique plot that definitely differs from most of the stories one expects of a JRPG, though still heavily anime inspired (think Bleach). More than that, it presents a lead character that unlike every other JRPG ever made, has a darker more anti-social presence to him. What’s better than a JRPG that breaks with tradition and provides an interesting and unique plot? Well a JRPG that breaks the mould with a distinctly different combat system that not only matched the capabilities and strength of the DS console but made for a thoroughly enjoyable game.
Now imagine all of that and more on the 3DS, though I see no reason not to include the Vita in all of this. Both of their systems would provide all the power needed to make an even prettier (more visually diverse) sequel. That, plus all the new ways of playing out combat and with Square Enix running wild in the plot department; it certainly seems like there is potential for a game to go beyond its previous title.
