Famitsu lists most wanted sequels of all time in survey

10:00 AM on 05.04.2009 // Colette Bennett

You know the conversation I'm about to describe: the one where you and your friends sit around drinking beer or sharing pizza and talking about the game sequels that you have all fantasized about in the late hours of the night. I hear a lot of common requests every time this convo is had, but people usually just look at me funny when I say I want Shadowgate II (and that crappy N64 game does NOT count).

Well, Famitsu Weekly decided to take a survey and find out what sequels readers wanted most of all. NeoGAF posted the list, which you can read in full after the jump. Sakura Wars came out on top, with Shenmue, Okami, Gotchaforce and Xenogears right behind it. There's lots of other great ones in there (Yeah Lost Odyssey!), and I'm sure you'll find yourself reading the list and agreeing with quite a few of these.

It's worth noting that Famitsu also contacted the publishers of the top 15 titles on the list for comment. Most of them didn't have much to say, but Hideo Kojima replied personally, saying that he often gets requests for this sequel and while it's not something he can take on now he will definitely keep it in mind. There's hope!

Do you have any sequels you've dreamed of that didn't make the list? If so, what are they?

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?

Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

So I can plug any headphones I want into my PS4 controller. If said headphones have a mic, will it work in chat?

Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

Just bought Fez for xbox 360. Playing it on my 58 inch plasma. What a beautiful game.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

People can debate GOTY all they want, but the real question is: D-Horse or Roach?

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.

Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.
