Metal Jesus has a new video where he asks his friends what game sequels are better than the originals. They have a lot of great answers and it got me thinking a bit about what I would pick? I think a few games stand out to me but Mega Man 2 is one of the games that comes to mind as being better than the original. I also think WarCraft III was a better game than the first two WarCraft's even though WarCraft II was really good.

What games or movies do you think are better than the original?

Games or movies? Yikes.

Super Mario World > Super Mario Odyssey > SMB 3 > the originals

Aliens > Alien but not by a ton

Terminator 2 > 1 by a lot

Fallout 3 > Fallout 1 and 2 (don’t @ me)

God of War > God of War. Wait what?

Mass effect 2 > Mass Effect

Empire > ANH and I won’t comment on the rest of those at the moment

TMNT2 > TMNT (NES, not the movies)

Toy Story 2 > Toy Story

I could go on but I won’t. Those are the ones they just came to me. I think video game sequels are more frequently improvements on their predecessors than movies. At least they used to be. That may be going a different way now with the annual churn of some games.

Yeah lots of video game sequels are better. Borderlands 2 came to me but I really liked the original.
