Top Ten New Sony IPs from the Past Decade

SPC writes, "While many publishers rest on their laurels or play it safe with their preexisting properties, Sony should get a ton of credit for not showing much fear in creating a constant stream of new franchises. It's unbelievable that they're so gung ho about them especially while the world is in its current economic situation and how much of a gamble fresh franchises really are. Whether it's God of War, Ratchet & Clank, or LittleBigPlanet, Sony's internal studios have crafted some of the finest new IPs of the last decade. This list is what I perceive to be Sony's ten best new series from the year 2002 to now. I don't expect you to agree with the order, but these ten franchises showcase Sony's greatest ideas of the past decade." (God of War, Infamous, LittleBigPlanet, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Ratchet and Clank, Resistance: Fall of Man, Shadow of the Colossus, Sony, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves)

There are so many amazing franchises on this list

I personally love Ratchet & Clank and Uncharted, two of my favorite PlayStation series

as much as i like this list, it shows Sony missing some genres...

i want them to remake Legend of Dragoon or Dark Cloud just that PlayStation has its own JRPG series and not be reliant on 3rd Parties. then, hand Demon's Souls to Sony Santa Monica and see what they can do with it and have their own WRPG...

Isnt Shadow of the Colossus part of ICO in some way?
GribbleGrunger  +   1176d ago
Yes and no. It's part of the same universe, but not the same story. If The Last Guardian ever sees the light of day, you bet your life that it will also be part of that universe

1. God of War

I personally think Killzone is better than Resistance.
But i do like them both.

I cant wait for Killzone: Mercenaries.

God of War is the best franchise Sony has ever created and my favourite video game franchise of all time, 5 perfect games which is soon to be 6.

I would only ever buy a Playstation console for a God of War game. Other than God of War the only other IP I really like is LittleBigPlanet, I used to like Gran Turismo but 5 disappointed and now I'm more into Forza.

I like the Resistance franchise especially Resistance 3 which is great but that's it. I hate Uncharted and hope Naughty Dog goes back to Jak and Daxter, Killzone bores me, Infmous was ok I guess but not very memorable and there's nothing else I think is even worth mentioning.

Sounds like you don't like variation in your library.
