Sequels Suck, and Here's Why

From the article:

"I can’t even walk into a game retailer with a shred of dignity these days. I look at the shelves, and all I see are titles of games with #2′s or #3′s tacked on to them. Are gamers so insecure that they are willing to buy sequels of sequels of prequels of games? Or is the industry to be blamed for not being innovative?"

Depends on the sequel or prequel, and how well it's done.

I want more new IPs, but sequels don't suck.

What if Halo 3, Killzone 3, Half Life 2, Bad Company 2, etc, etc, etc never existed?

Personally, I too am tired of sequels. I like having a few here and there, but I want more new IPs too. Developers aren't being creative anymore.

Developers can be creative it's the publishers that decide in the end how much they want to invest their time, resources and money into a project. A company like Activsion will be more strict on new IPs whereas 2K games or Valve are more risk taking. The fact is at this moment in time everyone's is scared to invest in new projects. If a game flops then the studio is most likely to shut down. Sad but hopefully things will change as the economy grows again.
