Video game sequels are a tricky thing. Sometimes they turn out better than the original like Mass Effect 2 and other times we get an abomination like Fallout 76. Either way, creating a sequel comes with it's fair share of problems, and we're going to discuss them all!

(17:00) If you mean "numerical entries" by the fact they list the number in the title. Such as how Mario Kart only have 2 numerical entries: 7 and 8. The rest does not follow this system. Mario Party then have 9 entries: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Games with "64" in the title does not count unless there's 63 previous games. Games with a year in the title, or a number not related to the sequel number, does not count either. Following these rules; is there any game series that beats Mario Party's 9 entries?

You forgot one thing that yearly franchise don't have enough time to innovate so they try to iterate the same thing but here's the twist they mess up doing the same thing in the sequel for example look at the parkour system in AC unity and then compare it to Odyssey.The problem with iteration is that they will get boring even if they are good or bad...

Fallout 76 didn't have lack of respect. It had the same formulas as the last games. Open world, vaults, loads of region-specific monsters, Super Mutants, heavily moddable. And it was now a multiplayer game, something Fallout fans wanted for almost a decade when the rumors of Fallot MMO were released. The problem with 76 was the implementation. The game was broken. It constantly glitched and crashed. And the pvp and pve systems were horrible, like they looked at Destiny and GTA and said, "let's do that, but not that.

If a sequel can't stand on it's on merit, it's shit. Most sequels can't for one simple reason. In order for a sequel to be made, the first game needs to be popular but when a game becomes popular, executives get involved because there's money to be made and when executives get involved, games turn to garbage checklist games that aren't made for gamers, but focus groups.

Persona is a great example of how sequels should be done. Each game expands and improves upon excellent turn based combat, dungeons, anctivies and raw scope of the game, while also having different atmosphere, story and characters each time, while also keeping core elements of the franchise.

@UCgFzuIPKhAbBvPQzd_iTjOw I just searched up all the complaints people had with Sister Freide on reddit, and as it turns out, every single one of the complaints have had replies with more likes and then the actual discussion. So, in other words, I goes to show that Sister Freide is considered to be one of the best bosses in the series, and most people would agree. Also, when it comes to the opinions of players new vs old, it would make sense to trust the old players as they are more experienced with these games, so why bring up the new ones? And how is Nameless Kong’s lore ass because he wasn’t a character in the first game? You realize that when it comes to understanding lore, it’s much better to a character (or boss in this case) have build up so that small details you didn’t think matter would make sense in the case of the lore? Also, most of the best bosses in DS are optional, so that doesn’t matter. Knight Artorias, Manus, Sir Alonne, Sister Freide, Gael and Darkeater Midir. Besides that, Ds3 also has other great bosses as well, Pontiff Sulyvahn, Aldrich, Lothric and Lorian, and Champion Gundyr are examples of these. Ds1 doesn’t have 6 bosses to get to Gwyn, as well. To get to Gwyn, you have to fight Asylum Demon, Bell Gargoyles, Queelag, Iron Golem, O&S, Great Grey Wolf Sif, Four Kings, Pinwheel, Gravelord Nito, Seath, Ceaseless Discharge, Demon Firesage, Centipede Demon and Bed of Chaos. That’s way more than 6 bosses. Also, which tree boss are you talking about? Cursed Undead Greatwood? Cause yeah it’s optional but just because it’s not hidden and it’s optional doesn’t make it bad. I could’ve skipped it if I wanted to but I ain’t doing that. Another note, if you’re telling me Ds3 is only hard for it’s bosses you’re wrong, Irithyll and The Ringed City have a lot of areas that can be troublesome at times. However, Ds2 literally only makes the areas harder, and if you die on your way to a boss, you have to start a 2-3 min all over again to the boss.
Mr. YeP

@Sora Kazama bro I literally have never heard a single person complaint about Sister Freide and Nameless King, they’re literally voted at top 10 best in the series. At most the only boss from Ds2 that DS fans would put in that discussion is Sir Alonne. In fact, I looked at souls ranking for bosses in terms of overall quality and it goes like this: BB > Ds3 > DS1 > Sekiro (even though I think it should be higher than DS1) > DeS > Ds2. Yo, Ds2 couldn’t even beat DeS, and that game hardly has any memorable boss fights to begin with. Also, Freide isn’t “4 boss fights” just because the 2nd phase has two enemies to deal with. The fact that you can do damage to either of them and their health goes down equally shows that you can literally beat it by hitting one of them, and in some cases, it worked. Also, who tf accesses DLC early? That’s literally asking to get butt fucked. You’re supposed to do DLC after beating every main game boss except for the final one. That’s like if I made it half way in the main game and went to the DLC to take on Elena before Vendrick. Also, Endurance is easy to handle in Ds3. The only thing that’s hard is dodging her attacks, which makes sense for a DLC. Also, what’s wrong with using Dex or Strength? Swords should be more manageable than fuckin spells at the end of the day. Also, didn’t you say that Ds3 was too easy? Why are you complaining about Sister Freide’s difficultly? It’s not cheap like Ancient Dragon, it has an annoying run back like Lud and Zallen, so what’s your point? And in what situation do you have to be for a boss to take you that long? Sister Freide took me (when I beat it) around 6-7 minutes long. Also, not everything is at Firelink Shrine. If you beat Sister Freide you can get her Scythe which is great in PvP. Not only that, but weapons like Astora, Hollowslayer, Dragonslayers, and Twin Prices are all top tier. Also the areas, while they are very linear, at least the enemies are fun to fight. Irithyll, The Ringed City, Painted World of Adandiel, High Wall of Lothric and Grand Archives are all really well design imo. As for Ds2, there areas are shit. The Gutter, Undead Purgatory, Shrine of Amana, Frigid Outskirts, and Shaded Woods are among the worst areas in any souls game. Also you keep saying that there’s not point in the characters, when, again, by doing a side quest you can get the good ending and by doing another you can fight with Onion boy.

@Mr. YeP people like their chadacter not the bosses themselves. There are shit ton of rants on friede and nameless king. Abyss watchers was okay. Friede being considered one of the worst bosses in dsrk souls. It goes against everything dark souls was andis suppose to be you can easilylookher upon famous youtubers and or reddit post. The problem withthe phases in that game like i said a million times. The bosses have unreactable moves atleast one per boss, some dont use them because conditions arent met but the ones that douse them often are ridiculous. Friede is basically 4 boss fights. You can accidentally access her early especially if you got into the game late and bought all the dlc with that sndget your shit rocked. She kinda forces you into having a shit ton of endurance. You have to roll her entire chain to safely avoid damage. Think about other builds in that case that arent dex or strength and stamina? They are fucked. It last way too long, there is a gank on the second phase and the third phase is nothing but rolling. If you dont revolve around that then you sre fucked. If you teied to fight before getting to her you are fucked, if you use to much estus before the last phase unless you mastered it perfectly with a build that revolves around roll then you are fucked. But it all comes down to time to kill. When you beat the first phase you are already wanting the fight tobe over. Dark souls was known by switching up the action rpg genre by its subtle player choices and fast deaths among players, npcs and bossrs alike. No more sponges like skyrim, fallout 4, kingdom hearts and so fourth. This goes against all that. Some of those bosses can take up to 15-20mins and thats normal which is fucked. If you lose then you gotta go through multiple loading screen then walk back or go through a loading screen to change the build up at shrine. Its tedious and they made the world dead. Everything you need is right at the shrine so youd only leave to pretty much just fight bosses. All these beautiful levels designed greatly just to be ran through and forgotten. Its sad really. As for the areas i wasnt saying ds2 did it better i was saying they had more use basically. Ds3 you just run through them and thats it. There are people to find, hidden areas and treasures and so fourth in ds2 but not really 3. Aby characters there are basically lead to you or you are lead to them on a straight path. They are almost impossible to miss.

@Sora Kazama I don’t see the problem with a second phase if it’s executed perfectly. Why you think so many people like bosses like the Abyss Watchers, Nameless King and Sister Freide? That’s because while they have more than one phase, the phases are unique and good in their own way. Abyss Watchers, for example, starts off with you fighting one Abyss Watcher, and after a few seconds pass, another one joins to kill you. After that, another one joins to kill the boss and it repeats in that cycle until the boss is dead. All the souls join together and create the true Abyss Watcher with fast speeds and fire damage. This is absolutely unique in the souls series, and unlike Ds2, it’s beloved and memorable. Also in Pvp, i’ve won a lot with Greatswords in Ds3 to the point of gaining a fairly large amount of souls and leveling up quicker. I will agree that Also rolling is something that the souls games should encourage instead of using shield because what happens if u have to run away from an attack. I will agree that Ds2 PvP is better than Ds3, but Ds3 is better in every other way. About the, “it’s your own fault” argument when it comes to dying, Ds2 is a fuckin nightmare that requires more patience than perseverance. Instead of making you enjoy the combat you’re at points where either you’re dodging everything from far away or using spells at a distance. Also, Greatswords are definitely not the way to play Ds2. I had a +10 Zweihander and I still died more times than I could count. I still don’t know what’s a viable strategy in Ds2 when it comes to swordsplay. Also you said that, “that’s up to people’s opinion” as if you didn’t say Ds3 is the reason DS died. I also like the idea of allies turning on you for wrong decisions but I don’t see exactly how Ds3 did this poorly. Also Ds2 having you go to areas that made no sense is not a good thing. I like a world that’s connected, that feels real. This is, again, why I prefer Lordran over Drangelic and Lothric. Also Ds3 isn’t terribly linear, and it doesn’t justify going to other areas as a scapegoat from the shit load of enemies you encounter in Ds2. Ds3 has better areas as well. I can’t think of one area in Ds2 that I enjoyed to some extent. Getting to Irythill for the first time and seeing the gorgeous view was one of the most engaging moments in DS for me personally. Drangelic castle unfortunately couldn’t create that same spark at all. It was so gloomy and tedious, and at that point I just wanted to finish the game. Also I would say Ember is handled much better than Human Effigy in Ds2. You don’t completely need Ember to be good at Ds3, whereas if you don’t have Human Effigy in Ds2, your HP is lower than the fps drops in Blighttown. I will agree that the Fire Keeper leveling was pretty stupid and I didn’t like it for either game, giving that Ds1’s Firelink Shrine, actually rewarded you more than simply needing a Fire Keeper to lvl up. PvE isn’t all just boss rushes as I got like 100K souls from The Ringed City in like half an hour without the need of boss fights. Again, while I think PvP was handled better in Ds2, I don’t mind it in Ds3.

@Mr. YeP dude every single boss has a second phase now 3 phases is rare. Some have the og second phase where they keep the same health but gain better attacks but its 1/20 and that sucks ass. Ds2 is widely known as the best pvp or most refined pvp experience. I thought i said greatswords were the only other option in pve. In pvp circumstances the reason greatswords arent viable is because only few that you can count on one hand can actually recover fast enough to catch rolls. Rolling tookthat game over. Ds3 has had just as many moments as ds2 as to whete i feel its not your fault when you die for example like i keep bringing up....the dumb ass unreactable moves they added for npcs and bosses to catch rolls and strafing. Sometimes they can be in the middle of an animation and still do that cheesy shit. Please look it up so you can see what i mean its bogus as hell. As for npcs giving you things. There are alot ofthings you only get by killing npcs especially in the dlcs. If you want to buy items from npvs like you brought up then you need souls and how do you get souls? My point exactly. Ds3 is widely known as the worst for pvp next to bloodborne for some of the idiotic choices that they made. Its almost as if they forgot they were making ds3 and not bloodborne 2. Magic was extremely good in ds2 yes but it was definitely not the best. Greatsword and longsword were the best way to play inthe game. You can in all dark souls games roll through magic as its about to land so no excuse on that behalf. I beat all of ds2 and only struggled with giants ganking and i played dagger and crossbow my first playthrough on sotfs no less. Yes i owned the original but i was so stuck with ds1 that i didnt give it a true chance until next gen. I actually vastly prefer the lote of ds2 vs ds3 but thats up to people own opinion. I like the plague of losing memories and allies turning on you if the wrong decision were made. Ds3 tried to copy this and it was not as entertaining. Ds2 had alot of straight lines but also alot ofgetting lost as well even though the areas made no got damn sense and really made you feel you were in a game. Ds3 keeps you in a straight line the entire game. Only freedom i remember in the base game was that elevator at the beginning of the game that lead to the giant/onion knight or down below into barronkeep i believe is what it was called. Also ember has nearly no use outside of pvp or coop this time around. There was alot wtong with both, you can probably find my old discussion on ds2 on some of these peoples channels but its superior to ds3 in way to many ways for meto let ds3 pass. They even made the dumbass decision of keeping ds2s dumbass decision where we have a shrine guardian level us up instead of the bonfire and teleporting at start. This makes you have to go through constant loading screens before you realize level up is pointless after like 40 levels. Pve was just boss rushes and pvp is ganking without a reliable way to win it like you could in 1 and 2
