Best Video Game Sequels


The Top Ten

1 Half-Life 2

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 Galaxy 2

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!

3 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

4 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Nah, this game is overrated. - KennyRulz244444

This is not a sequel - Jake09

5 Super Mario Bros. 3

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

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 Super Smash Bros. Brawl
10 Halo 2

The Contenders

11 Pokemon Gold

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.

12 Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
13 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

14 Silent Hill 2


15 Halo 3
16 Tomb Raider Legend
17 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
18 Destroy All Humans! 2
19 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.

20 Mass Effect 2
21 Chrono Cross
22 Kingdom Hearts II

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