Knights of the Retro Table QUEST 05: Good games without sequels

knights of the retro table retro games podcast retrogamepapa good games without sequels

Of which we would like to see one or two.

In this quest, Peter “Retrogamepapa” Scheffer talks with Michiel Kroder about good video games that never got a sequel. There aren’t that many lonely games out there which don’t suck. Some very good Rare games didnt get a sequel for example. Michiel has just two, but Peter has a lot more. And how would we like the sequel to play and be different? The two knights also namedrop a few games without sequels of which they also think don’t need a sequel. Next to this main topic Michiel and Peter also talk about the latest games they’ve played, bought and on a sidenote Peter also starts about Transformer toys again.

In the Entrance part we talk about: Doom Eternal, Doom (2016), Bayonetta gameseries (mainly about 1 and 3), The Mummy (PS1 game) and how terrible of an experience it was to obtain the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Collector’s Edition. In the Jousting: Dangun Feveron (PS4) and Megaman X Collection (Gamecube).

Retrogamepapa’s Addendum: This was a nice weird little premise and topic to think about. Most games get sequels, even unlikely ones. After the recordings many more popped in my head, because I personally didn’t think at all about the vast amount of great PC games out there without sequels. There are also a loads of games who didnt need sequels, but still got them. That’s perhaps a nice sequel to touch upon in another podcast quest!
