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

This isn't really a sequel, majoras mask is a sequel to this amazing game though

Nah, this game is overrated. - KennyRulz244444

This is not a sequel - Jake09

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 Fallout New Vegas
10 Halo 3

Perfect end, to a perfect series - Spiderman209942

The Newcomers

? Mortal Kombat: Deception
? Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

The Contenders

11 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

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

12 Super Smash Bros. Brawl
13 Halo 2
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 Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
16 Kingdom Hearts II

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

17 Mass Effect 2
18 Silent Hill 2


19 Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage
20 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
21 Chrono Cross
22 Tomb Raider II
23 Tomb Raider Legend
24 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.

25 Portal 2

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