Best Video Game Sequels


The Top Ten

1 Half-Life 2

This is the greatest sequel known to man, come on! - Danganronpa

Set the bar as high as possible for first person pc shooters, and solidified Valve as the gaming giant it is today.

This is the best game ever made! How can it not be the best sequel?

Should be at least top 5 come on - htoutlaws2012

2 Super Mario Bros. 3

Yes 2nd best Mario game next to Super Mario 64 - Jake09

3 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Nah, this game is overrated. - KennyRulz244444

4 Resident Evil 4

Are you kidding me this is a good game also the best game in the series and one of the greatest games of all time it is up there snooping around with Ocarina of Time Half Life 2 and the Super Mario Galaxy games.

The Resident Evil games are boring. - KennyRulz244444

5 Super Mario Galaxy 2

Made a glorious game more glorious

It gave us everythign we loved from the original and more! It didn't change much, because that there was no need! - HeavyDonkeyKong

This game is AWESOME!

6 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Should be 1. best game of all time

It's great.

7 Super Smash Bros Melee
8 Assassin's Creed II
9 Batman Arkham City

Not only one of the best sequels of all time, but also one of the best overall games ever.

Very Sad Conclusion - BeatlesFan1964

Not technically a conclusion as they made sequel but still sad - kanetheundertaker25

A sequel to a video game no one thought was gonna be good but did ok but the sequel dives even further it ups the combat it has a great story the bosses are cool solomen grundy being cool as hell riddler being challenging joker being menacing but you all know my freeze is still the king

10 Halo 3

Perfect end, to a perfect series - Spiderman209942

The Contenders

11 Super Smash Bros. Brawl
12 Halo 2
13 Fallout New Vegas
14 Pokemon Gold and Silver

This game was made by 4 people in under a year. Beat that.

100 new additions to the game. Improved colour graphics. Tons of less gliches. An entire new region. 18 gym badges. A fantastic rival and new features. You fight yourself from the first game. Enough said.

15 Mass Effect 2
16 Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
17 Silent Hill 2


18 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
19 Kingdom Hearts II

Slightly better than the first one, but it's about a tie for me. - Alpha101

20 Chrono Cross
21 Tomb Raider: Legend
22 Banjo-Tooie

Banjo Tooie is everything that made Banjo Kazooie great and more. Every single aspect about the original has been improved on, with delightfully well designed mechanics, levels, and gameplay, with a much steeper difficulty curve, Rareware's lesser known masterpiece is the definition of what great video game sequels should be.

23 Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
24 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
25 Portal 2

HOW IS THIS NOT AT LEAST 3RD?! This is the most perfect sequel anyone could ever play.

26 The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter
27 Destroy All Humans! 2
28 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
29 Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2
30 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
31 The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
32 Borderlands 2
33 Persona 2: Innocent Sin
34 Sonic Adventure 2 Battle
35 Street Fighter II
36 Time Splitters 2
37 Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
38 Gears of War 2
39 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
40 Fallout 2
41 Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage
42 Quake II
43 Resident Evil 2
44 God of War 2
45 Batman: Arkham Knight
46 Mario Kart 8
47 Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete
