Darrin Wright of The Game Fanatics takes a look back at some of the best new franchises we got this generation.
Every SONY IP
Bioshock & Dishonored for me, hell no to assassins creed
... Super Meat Boy, Mark of the Ninja, The Trials games, and a couple of others. I would have mentioned Journey, but that's never going to get a sequel. Assassin's Creed 2 was absolutely great, but the rest of the AC games weren't as good as pt. 2, Oh, the Arkham games were fantastic! They deserve a mention as well.
you fail Mass effect for sure, then Assassins Creed,
Binary Domain for me, sadly it sold so poorly i'd be surprised if the lead developer hasn't been locked in a dungeon for its lack of sales...and off the back of that no sequel/DLC. :(
Loved it! Some fantastic boss fights and characters in that game. Other than that, Mass Effect and Demon's Souls/ Dark Souls are among my favourite new IP's this gen. And Deus Ex, although technically that doesn't count but.
I had to borrow a 360 just to play Mass Effect, was jaw dropping the sheer scope of the game and absolutely loved it. Slight decline as the series went on but still very playable! Demon's Souls consumed me for a few weeks when it first come about. Couldn't get into Dark Souls though, I knew I would build a char, realise I had wasted items or skill points when leveling up and realise I would have to start a new char build...all that went through my head by the time I reached the first camp fire. :)
I would have put Infamous,Alan wake and LBP up there.
No Demon Souls!?
LBP, without a doubt. Man I went hardcore on that game.
Not everybody's cup of tea... But the Souls series (Demon's/Dark Souls) is my personal favourite of this generation. It brought back frustrating yet rewarding gameplay. I really missed that from the old NES days.
First mystery Footage's Leaked from China for Final Fantasy Versus XIII in a Gif !!?? Edit : Link Updated .. The original link deleted ! http://img268.imageshack.us... Oh my .. OH my Hueheehehue :D
Batman Arkham - The witcher - Bastion .
Also... here it says new IP's which makes sense... In the actual article it says "franchises" and Dishonored is there... A one game franchise, lol. WTF?
Bethesda has announced it will become a franchise.
Mass Effect. Best trilogy in gaming ever.
No there are better ones. Super Mario rings a bell?
OK buddy you asked for it. First Mario isn't a trilogy because there are a ton of Mario games. And second this article is about new intellectual properties and thus doesn't include any Nintendo franchises. And third stop being a fanboy and just admit that Nintendo isn't known fr producing great new IPS. Thank you very much for you your time and have a glorious day. U mad? Anyways my favourite new IPS from this generation of consoles are. 1. Dishonored 2. Uncharted 3. Gears of War 4. Dead Space 5. Mutant Blobs 6.Sounds Shapes 7. Pinball Arcade 8. Little Big Planet 9.Infamous 10. Borderlands Motorola RAZR i
You need to actually have a story arc to count as a trilogy. Super Mario 1,2,3 is just a series.
I'll take Dead Space over Mass Effect any day.
I still need to play Uncharted and Mass Effect lol. Just so many games coming out that I want to play that these two franchises get pushed further back to the queue... I will play them at some point a long with other franchises that I have missed out on.
"I still need to play Uncharted and Mass Effect" yes you do...
Sony has too many to mention lol
and a few other scattered around their
On multiplat side
and a few others....
uncharted is one of my favourite new IPs
Uncharted, portal, Ni no kuni, Deadspace, Infamous, Pixeljunk (i know it's technically not a New IP), journey, flower, valkyrie chronicles, Gears, Littlebigplanet, motorstorm, demons souls, Lost Odyssey, white knight chronicles, sound shapes, Last of us (i know its not out but its ND), Bioshock. Pretty sure they're some that i missed
No real order, Just some the best games been made this gen Demon Souls <--- Best game made this gen for console Rest i think were great games Dead Space 1 Batman borderlands 1 Dishonored Day Z, well mod :P Terraria FTL Legends of Grimrock Uncharted Torchlight 2 Arma 3
Demon's Souls is flat out amazing, a game crafted to perfection is pretty much an understatement and that's no exaggeration.
Vanquish No more heroes Madworld Bayonetta Child of eden Batman arkham asylum (if that counts) Castle crashers Bit.trip games Bioshock Dead space
Demon's Souls by far, the MP alone was sheer brilliance. Whoever thought that up is a genius. That game was really something else.
