There are games so good, that we just can't get enough. Here are our picks for games that should have a sequel.

This Slack discussion by Nicolas Ng, Jack Boreham Limarc Ambalina, and I occurred in slogging's official #gaming channel, and has been edited for readability.

What game do you think deserves a sequel?
Nicolas NgApr 2, 2021, 5:11 PM
This is a weird answer but Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. It was originally meant to be part of a trilogy that had a plot intended to explore some of the setting's more interesting conflicts and would basically expand on lore in a really interesting way. It had amazing combat too that I think back to all the time

Iโ€™ve never played it, but I definitely need to check it out!

My answer might seem weird too, but Iโ€™ve been waiting for another sequel to the Mario soccer games. I never got to play the first two, but I always thought they looked like so much fun.

I really want a Simpsons hit and run sequel. The first game was well received and loved to this day. Lest have a sequel!
Limarc AmbalinaApr 2, 2021, 10:49 PM
Such a random answer Jack but I do love that game haha. My answer to this would be The Legend of Dragoon. We need a remaster and a sequel.

I also was crushed when I heard the news about TellTale shutting down and their Game of Thrones game not getting a second season. It's one of their best titles ever and the fact that it runs alongside the main series without interfering with it is amazing.

Jack, I feel the same exact way. My mom would never let me own a GTA game, but I did have Hit and Run and it was amazing.

Limarc, I was also disappointed to hear about TellTale because their Batman series was great.
Limarc AmbalinaApr 3, 2021, 5:02 AM
I have the telltale game but I'm yet to finish it! It is in my long backlog but I swear I'll get to it
Jose HernandezApr 3, 2021, 5:52 PM
Haha I promise it's worth the wait

Have you never played a Grand Theft Auto game? I'm one of the few gamers in the world that are in the same boat as you, if so.

I've played a little of San Andreas when I would go to my cousins' house, but I've never sat down and fully played one. And now that I'm old enough to buy it for myself, I kind of have no desire to.
Jack BorehamApr 3, 2021, 6:23 PM
As a kid, Jose, my mum was the exact same, although I don't think we were missing out on much with GTA. I'm not the biggest fan of the grand theft auto franchise to be honest. I much prefer being Homer and causing havoc around Springfield.
Jack BorehamApr 3, 2021, 6:24 PM
As a kid I probably put in around 100hrs into that game and still never beat it. I actually came back to it a few years ago and I still couldn't finish the game...๐Ÿ˜‚
