Does anything in a trilogy or series ever live up to or past the first installment?

Most get better with the second because they fix what was broken, the third usually goes off the rails because they start adding.

Why does this always happen? If you already have a fanbase amidst this era of gaming, any change is dangerous and is almost never worth it.

This happened with the Spiderman movie trilogy.
1st was great, 2nd was even better, 3rd one was bad.
This saying works sometimes: "The 1st one was good, the 2nd one was better, but the 3rd one had to kill it."

Usually for me I see something different.

First does everything great, sets up the universe. Second works off the first, but is usually not planned as well despite some possible improvements. Third everyone sat down for a while and thought things through and made something that's sometimes even better than the first installment.

But I'll see it switches from my idea and everyone else's idea here. Some of these are my beliefs:

Shrek I believe the second was the best.

Toy story it was the third.

MiB first was the best, but the third was better than the second.

It's all opinionated, but it's often that either the second or third title of a trilogy that doesn't live up.

Generally the better the first instalment is, the worse the sequel. If the first part is a wonderful completely self-contained story, then making the second one usually requires inflating it and using plot devices to even allow for a sequel. So if the 1st part is amazing and gets recognition, both in games and in movies, the 2nd one usually ends up being a cynical cash-in by remaking the same crap. That may well not apply to trilogies that were meant to be trilogies from the start.
But then on the other hand, if the first part is lacking, then the second one has a chance to make amendments to those errors and become superior to the first part.

Exactly, Q.U.. Couldn't have said it any better.

I do feel where this conversation started, Bioshock 2, was one of these examples of a cash-in.

BACK TO PICS

Ugh, 8:30 am exam

"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I'm kind of split between the first Sly and the second. The first made me feel nostalgic about games like Jak&Daxter but with Crash Bandicoot's health system and the commentary they added for after you finished the game was a nice touch. But the second changed things up quite a lot and gave Sly its own original feel to an extent. This time instead of Naughty Dog nostalgia, it reminded me a little of Spyro back at the beginning of things with the world hubs to go from mission to mission and enemies to fight or avoid in-between. But with one, getting used to the difficulty with the health system was hard at times and the second annoyed me with how some world hubs were just continuations of the previous location for the same villain you wanted to take down, as well as Sly's strength being nerfed for the sake of the multiple characters and more stealth.

Also, have an opinion about Thieves in Time, WB?

FUCK THAT NOISE MY NEW SHIRT ARRIVED

it was from shiteshirts.com where you buy a shirt and you pick the size and you don't know what it's gonna look like. they randomise which fabric they use for each part of the shirt and every fabric has some awful pattern on it.

it's just a mess. a hilarious mess that i will probably not wear very often at all, but i'm still glad i have it for the few times that i will wear it out and have a hilarious time.
