    What Sequels that aged worse than their predecessors ? here some in my opinion:

    Quake 2 - aged awful

    Morrowind - Morrowind aged slightly worse than daggerfall

    KOTOR - not a sequel but aged awful compared to KOTOR 2

    Might and Magic 6 - awful combat system compared to M&M 4

    Heroes of Might and Magic 3 - not from a gameplay perspective.Soundtrack,art-style and story in HOMM2 are way better than HOMM3

    Master of Orion 2 - terrible micromanagement late game

    Civilization 3 - i have no idea why but CIV3 is just boring

    C&C Tiberian Sun

    Diablo 2 - too long and repetitive

    Dawn of War 3. What a painful disappointment that was.

    Every Fallout after the second one.
    Everything X-COM related.

    Not only they were worse but they didn't age as well as their predecessors.

    I think this is definitely true. HL1 I can still replay today and it feels fun. HL2 is a slog. Absolute zero replayability.

    Pretty much any sequel that made the jump from 2D to 3D in the mid-to-late 90s.

    Does nobody remember Unreal 2 and Deus Ex: IW, or were they so awful that nobody considers them true sequels?

    Anyway:
    • Homeworld 2
    • Quake 2
    • MDK 2
    • TES IV: Oblivion (pretty striking example as no matter how you look at it, it's driven into the ground by one or more of its prequels, Skyrim OR both - it truly has no redeeming qualities).

    KotOR was always a much different game story, quest design and pacing wise. I don't think it aged any differently, it was just always different. I love both.

    Except for Rayman 2 of course.

    Fable 2? Never played it but it had good reviews on release., if I remember correctly, but nowdays nobody mentions it.

    well, arguably civ3 is more of a prequel to civ4 +M
