New IP Is The Ultimate Tease

An opinion column via eGamer.co.za in which the writer discusses new IP and how they set us up for inevitable failure, while moving on to defend Assassin's Creed III for the great game he claims it is, with reasons. He also makes mention of Mass Effect 3 and why he hopes that Half-Life 3 never sees the light of day. (Assassin's Creed III, Half Life 3, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Lol wow... If everyone thought that way, we wouldn't have any games at all... EVERYTHING started out as a new IP at some point. Have to take risks to find the next big thing.

Half Life 3 isn't a new IP, it's an extension of an existing one. As for why those threequels didn't reach the heights as the author mentions, it's because the excitement isn't there like it would be for a whole new franchise.

I find it far more exciting to see what Bungie brings us next as opposed to Halo Reach. Not because Halo Reach was a bad game, far from it. It's because Destiny is a whole new universe and that's when our imaginations go wild.

Suggesting Valve should never release Half Life 3 because that would ruin the excitement doesn't make much sense. Valve are not a one trick pony. They can and will create new games to get us excited for as well. Sure Half Life 3 may not meet everyone's expectations but that goes for most games. It doesn't mean delaying it until eternity is the right choice so that those expectations remain unscathed.
