Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best One-Off Titles/ Games Without a Sequel

Tagged games:

Some of this is subjective, just because I see people mentioning a bunch of games that I would consider spinoffs.  Doesn't really matter though. Here are my picks:

Undertale
Adventure
H.E.R.O
Anteater
Dead Cells
Duck Hunt
Hogan's Alley
Astroboy: The Omega Factor
Celeste
Wargroove
Untitled Goose Game


That's mostly it.  Even the games I could mention that are obscure to most would still be a sequel or spinoff (or later had a sequel or spinoff).  The video game industry is full of them.

Child of Light

(good call on eternal darkness.  I was going to mention Shadowman, but found that there was a sequel on the ps2 only.  Shame)

Wolf Among Us has a sequel in development currently, just in case you didn't know.

Had no idea I thought it was cancelled. That's awesome though! I really enjoyed the TWaU.

Yeah, after the old Telltale was closed down in early 2018 due to mismanagement, some investors bought the Wolf Among Us IP and renewed Telltales Batman license, and opened a new Telltale in late 2018, which hired several former employees of the old Telltale and put Wolf Among Us 2 back into development again, with some assistance by a 2nd studio made up of former Telltale devs. The new Telltale is much smaller and is planning to focus on one game at a time, instead of trying to manage like 4 at once, which is what ultimately lead to the downfall of the old Telltale, they grew too large too fast.



Full Throttle

Grim Fandango

Blade Runner

Toonstruck

Technobabylon

Unavowed

Disco Elysium



Stardew Valley: It's not quite 5 years old yet and is made by one guy. But plenty of games have sequels released or announced before then. If we do get a Stardew Valley 2, it's probably at least 5 years away.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 130 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 110 million (was 73, then 96 million)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

Shadow of the Colossus (if it counts) and The World Ends With You for me.
