Throughout video game history, there have been some series where you wonder why the sequels never end. However, there are others which seemingly shouldn’t get sequels either because of lack of sales, development troubles or because they don’t need it. Then they get sequels anyway and they’re pretty darn good, sometimes even better than the original. Let’s take a look at 15 such sequels here, though beware of spoilers.

Titanfall 2

For as brilliant as its multiplayer was at launch, Titanfall had some major issues with balance, content and post-launch support. The throwaway “story” didn’t help either and despite a positive critical reception, player numbers dropped off, leaving doubts as to whether Respawn would revisit the franchise. But not only did Titanfall 2 happen – even with how disagreeable some of the multiplayer changes were – it had an incredible campaign that stands as one of the best in the genre. Sadly, its sales and player count dipped even quicker and the series is more or less AWOL.
