Should Next-gen Games Be Sequels Or New IPs?

Nerdacy: If we simply take a look at the primary line-up of next gen games, we’re looking at mostly sequels: Killzone: Shadow Fall, Forza Motorsport 5, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Need For Speed: Rivals, Dead Rising 3, etc. So I’ve been pondering over whether sequels or new IPs will dominate the next generation of gaming.

i prefer NEW ip's how long should we play CALL OF DUTY and its clones?????

Wouldn't mind some reboots either just to see what they could do on the new consoles.

In my personal opinion I rather see a new ip or sequel over a reboot. That game was a masterpiece and an amazing experience ;however, that game may have appealed to the audience of that time. This leads to simplifying, making it easier, etc to make it appealing to today's audience.

Depends on the series. Some need to go, others need to stay.

AC needs a break, COD needs a break, Bf is starting to look like it needs a break despite its second big push on consoles

It think its time for battlefield to take a break and give way to battlefront for a while until they ruin that, then bring back battlefield. New IP's are always great but its nice to see returning characters. Imagine never having another mario game, or zelda, or halo, or uncharted. We would be facing a very bleak future :)

They could be replaced with other things though.

True, i think in EA and DICEs hands Battlefront may be lost too in the puddle of rushed out games, hopefully Disney does good Quality Control for their Star Wars Products.

Actually a great future. I mean do you miss shinobi, comix zone, time crisis, dino crisis, warriors of might and magic, Alex the kid, etc . Those were the games that were supposed to be irreplaceable but got replaced. Basically the franchises of today will get replaced by new franchises. Like Jack and Daxter got replaced by Uncharted.........

+1 they need to take a break with BF series and bring back Bad company!!

A mixture of both, I want to see new IPs from all the publishers, but it doesn't mean I don't want sequels from established franchises. I'd love to see Nintendo EAD Tokyo and Miyamoto create a new IP, but I'd also love to see Zelda Wii U. I'd love to see Santa Monica and Naughty Dog create new IPs, but I also want Last of Us 2 and God of War 4. I'd love to see Lionhead and 343i create a new IP, but I also want Halo 5 and Fable Legends. Give us a balance of the two and you'll please the casuals and the hardcore.

More new ips, less sequels. Honestly I can't see why some people are excited for yet another sequel to some franchises.

Your profile picture says otherwise, Troll.
