Worst Sequel Ever!
« on: March 23, 2009, 02:34:42 am »
Following the "Lamest retcon ever" poll, what would be the worst idea for a sequel ever!

Many series have had games completely decimate the feel and spirit of their predesessors (Some even argue that Cross did that, but we ignore them with 'STFU nerfbats').  Castlevania 2, the CDI Zelda games, Final Fantasy X-2 (which wasn't that bad =P), Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter, and so on.  So what would be the be all end all worst sequel idea for the Chrono series?

Edit:  I voted for the Chrono Pokemon clone, because it sounds so bad that I'm ashamed to have thought of it.

Chronomon definitely.

That's what I was afraid the multiplayer in CTDS would turn out to be. It's already way too close.



The play-as-Dalton game actually sounds kinda fun.

I said other because one thing was missed...

A game on Crono and the gang owning a farm! And on this farm pesky Dalton likes to come in sometimes and spoil the crops! Stop Dalton by telling him "No." Obviously as the main character Crono would be the one to tell him while everyone else has the IQ of a toothpick so that you get to teach your teammates everything you know about farming! And it's realtime too! As in you can't leave them alone for a second or all hell breaks loose!
It's be called Chrono Crop!

Other:

Chrono Pocket Pals!

Feed, care, and train your favorite Chrono Trigger character from an egg to a full grown adult. Teach Magus how to use the potty and cast Dark Matter. Unlock costumes and give your Pals a makeover.

Thought, that actually sounds plausible. Tamagatchi anyone?

I vote other:

Chrono Trigger Dating Sim! You can choose to play as either Crono or Marle, or even secret unlockable character, Ozzie!
Plot: Lavos is back, and badder than ever! The only way to defeat it is with the power of LOVE. Our lonely hero must find their true soul mate, and together they will banish Lavos forever through the ritual of marriage! The final battle will be much easier if you can get one of the antisocial characters to fall for you.
Over 50 characters available to be your partner! Anyone from Frog to Ayla, Serge to ZOAH, Magus to Guile (or both at once, as they become the same person through the supersecret fusion dance!), and everyone in between!

Gotta agree with Zephira on the Tamagatchi thing. Plus that'd just be downright hilarious.

As for Dating Sim, love doesn't sound too corny, considering much of the actual story has to do with friendship.
However, sexual Ozzie instantly tortures my mind.

I must concede, that is what would make that not just bad, but my head might actually explode.

The dating thing does sound really bad, but so does the Chronomon.

But I'm not thinking Pokemon rip off. Oh, no.

I'm thinking DIGIMON RIP OFF.

Think about it. A bunch of kids get sucked up in time and find these super cute things they call Chronomon, and they Chronovolve into bigger awesomer things! Like one finds an itsy bitsy little Janusmon and says OH MY GOD SO CUTE! They then run around for a little while, then something happens that threatens the kid. Janusmon, Chronovolve to... MAGUSMON!

Chronomon, chronicle monsters, Chronomon are the champions!

Despite how horrible they'd probably be, I actually want to play Chronomon (pokemon like, not digimon) and Chronogatchi. They'd be better if you played with the actual monsters instead of characters though.
Remember those pocket Pikachu toys? You had to feed it every now and then, and shake it ALL the time to 'charge' your Pikachu. Imagine one of those instead of Chronogatchi. I bet Janus/Crono/whoever would get really tired of being shaken around all the time though..

Shortly after I posted up the poll I thought so too.  Playing Dalton in a rediculous God of War-style platformer.

I voted Chronomon.  There are some hilarious ideas floatin through here.  I think that the Dalton idea is awesome sounding, to be honest.

I voted Other: All of the Above. o_O

And as much as I like Pokemon, I still think the Chronomon thing would be terrible.

Actually, ALL OF THEM WOULD BE TERRIBLE. o_O I just couldn't choose, so I voted "all of the above"...

Surprised nobody's voted the idea of yet another Chrono Trigger re-release/port.  Sadly this is probably the most likely to happen before we get another poper sequel.

Personally, I wouldn't see it as that bad. I found this particular re-release to be a rather enjoyable one...
of course when it comes to Chrono I'm easy to please. As I constantly reference, they could all be panda bears and I'd love it.

i'm not implying anything, but it would be hilarious if onslaught was actually a troll from squenix trying to test out the "everybody's a panda" idea on us like a test audience. for that matter, it'd be hilarious if foucaptain or i were from squenix, but alas, that's not the case.

more on topic, i'd love another rerelease of ct. like in fifteen years, when i have kids and they are of video game playing age, it should come out again, "new". then i can say, "fifteen years ago, i remember the second time that game came out. it was awesome."
