The best sequels perfectly replicate what made the originals good, add they're own elements and make the game even more fun to play. All are obviously sequels that I have played, in no particular order.
Even better music then the previous games, all the hosts are back (with one as a cameo) more questions, more trivia games and the question values alternate considerablly making it much better to have characters make comebacks and keep the game interesting. A classic.

It's not that Super Mario Brothers 2 was bad but it only strove to make the old game very hard and didn't add that much to the game. Super Mario Bros 3 vastly improved things with more power ups, more enemies, secret levels, the map screen. This game is great.
The first Donkey Kong Country was a beautiful looking and sounding game but rather hollow. The sequel has even better sounds and visuals and it's hidden tokens and levels add considerably more to the game play. The challenge is higher too.
A controversial choice but for me it DOES embody what I said in the intro to this list. It improves the gameplay, they added new features and ramped up other elements. Yes there are things they took away from the first games that I liked but it is a case of pros outweighing the cons.
The finest of the Dragon Warrior games on the old NES took the already impressive Dragon Warrior 3 and improved the aspects but allowing an entire party of your characters together for all classes to be played. There is a lot of exploring in this game and I'm surprised that they got this much into an NES game.
I have played the original Street Fighter and I can say with no false modesty at what a crummy game it was but it DID have potential. This game was the pac man of the 90's and I loved it and it was hard to find people who hadn't played it. While I perfer the Alpha, 3 and 4 series over 2, this was the clearest improvement as far as gameplay was concerned
I've played many wrestling games and this one I can still pick up with it's great create feature, the RPG element for your characters, encounters during the story mode and writers for WWE worked on game. It just feels right. Graphics and sound are nice and it's definetely better then Shut Your Mouth and Just Bring It. and probably better then the Smackdown VS Raw games that would follow.
The original Wing Commander set a precedent for gaming back in 1990 and this sequel improved on plenty. The story was stronger and the graphics cleaner and even some voices which was impressive back in the day. The first Wing Commander encouraged people to invest in those things called sound cards, this one demanded it as well as that thing called a 486.
As the immediate game following the NES game here in the states, this game was supurb. More classes of characters and terrific music and gameplay powered by the SNES. It's outclassed by Final Fantasy III (US) but again, II was a lot better then the first game and III is only a little better then II, so I give the duke to II.
The first two Twisted Metal games were classics. The 3rd and fourth were considered ASSics. Black was nice but Head On got the game back on the right track. Fun, not too tough and still challenging with lots of bonuses to unlock and interactive courses to race through. This review is for the CONSOLE version.
