Street Fighter 2, Mortal Kombat 2, The Conduit 2.

I'm kinda reminded of System Shock. The first one was great but it didn't sell all that well. But SS2 was so much better, even though the original did a few things to differentiate it from the other FPS of the time.

I know TCon sold well enough, but the *perception* is that it sold poorly for a FPS.

Another recent example is Kilzone 2.

I agree with the Timesplitters. I never heard about the first even after getting Future perfect.

Actually, Killzone is a really good example - the original scored nearly exactly the same as The Conduit. Heck if you average the 3 scores shown here on GameFAQs, they both end up with the same score. O_o

But the first game was still good (many claim the best). This topic is about series where the first game was just kinda mediocre, while the second was great.

Half-Life, Half-Life 2. Not that the first wasn't great, HL2 just blew everyone's mind. And then it blew it again. And again.
