Default Longest Wait for a Sequel to a Favorite Game

OK, what's the longest any of you have waited for a sequel to a game you just LOVED? Any games that (regrettably) never got sequels, despite years of waiting?

My longest-wait-that-is-finally-being-satisfied: Diablo III. It's been almost ten years since Diablo II, and by the time the game finally comes out, it will be.

My longest-unsatisfied-wait: a sequel Twinsen's Odyssey (better known as Little Big Adventure 2). At this point, I'm pretty certain we're NEVER going to see LBA3. Oh well.

What about you guys?

Diablo III is definately up there for me, and I would have said Fallout 3, but now theres gonna be a sequel, even if it changes far too much from the previous games.

I'd really like to see a new QFG sequel, so I have to thank all the hard-working fans who are trying to make similar games.

A decent UFO sequel would be nice idea, plenty of attempts, but noone has nailed it yet.

There is of course Jagged Alliance 3 to wait for... and my all time number one game that I'm waiting for the sequel is....


Elite 4. (actually I dont think it'll be called that, but essentially thats what it'll be, if it ever gets finished.)

I always really liked the 'Fable' series, and I always hoped that they would expand on it. So, now with 'Fable 2' I can say that it has been my most long-awaited sequel.

But my longest unsatisfied wait has to be:

Every single one of Sanctuary Woods' games. I'd pick them up in a heart-beat's moment. Particularly, I whole-heartedly believe that remakes of Lion and Wolf would be fantastic, and a lot of the reason for my belief stems from the range of creativity, quality and realism that we can use in this day and time. It may seem impractical, but depending on who develops them I believe that they could be phenomenal. They had that type of potential to begin with. And they still do, in my opinion.

Well I would love to see a direct sequel for Master of Magic eventhough it probably will never be. I also wish there was a sequel to the Legend of Kyrandia series that would closely follow the spirit of the 3 games, especially part 2 - Hand of Fate which I liked the most.

Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. It came out in....98 I think? I bought the game for 4 dollars on a clearance rack in 2002. I've been waiting ever since....in vain. It never got the popularity that Civilization got, and they're up to Civ4 now. Unfortunately, I guess SMAC is going to be limited to a small cult following for all time.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3 - I would love to play this game if it ever came out.

I've heard some rumors about that their making it or that it is becoming a mmo. I hope they don't ruin a great sp series by making it an mmo.

Kid Icarus.

Seriously Nintendo. Give us either next Icarus or the Earthbound collection on DS.

Diablo III :amused:
But I'm still waiting a worthy remake of the first Dune...or at least a Dune title taken from one of the books, not necessarily a RTS.
