Flamebait Friday Debate: Annual Glorified Expansions vs Proper Sequels

1 min read


What’s worse/better? Waiting two whole years for a full-blown proper sequel, like we all are for Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3, Gears of War 3, Mass Effect 3 and a bunch of other games that probably end with a “3”… or… Do you prefer only waiting a year between “sequels” that change very little and only have some additions and a different story, like Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed or even sports titles, which almost couldn’t exist without constant updates.

Then again, some sequels only come out 5 − 10 years after their older brothers.

Does the long wait kill you? Does seeing another game every year kill your levels of hype and excitement for a franchise? This is the place to let it all out, because it’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday (and you thought that song was dead? Pfft).
