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 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

This is not a sequel - Jake09

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

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

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

Made a glorious game more glorious

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 Halo 3

Perfect end, to a perfect series - Spiderman209942

10 Halo 2

The Contenders

11 Super Smash Bros. Brawl
12 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

13 Pokemon Gold

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.

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


17 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
18 Fallout New Vegas
19 Chrono Cross
20 Tomb Raider Legend
21 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.

22 The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter
23 Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
24 Kingdom Hearts II

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