It seems like this console generation simply will not die, we have seen a ton of great new franchises to release with the current batch of hardware, this console cycle has dragged on for so long now that some of these new franchises feel as if they have been around forever. I actually think its worth debating if the current generation has seen the absolute best franchises of all time born from it. So while the next generation of consoles is seemingly inching closer, we are still managing to get what look to be very quality new IP’s, Watchdogs and The Last Of Us are just a couple of examples of really impressive looking games to come out at the end of a console generation. Most people argue it makes much more sense to release new IP’s when you launch a console, but sometimes you can draw in fans to a new series at the end of the cycle and you’ll see people follow that series over to the next console. God Of War and Halo are both great examples of this type of thinking. With that in mind, I give you in no particular order, the top five new franchises to release in this console generation.
