The heart being developers and publishers pumping out their games whilst the consumers are the lungs, fueling the whole industry. Now all that is left is the blood, games no doubt. Our bodies are constantly producing new blood cells as is our beloved industry new intellectual properties. Unfortunately, I feel that this generation, this very state of our industry, our “blood”, is beginning to stagnate. The lack of new IPs is quite worrying, but among the few there are some good, high quality IPs. Below I have compiled a list of my five most prestigious IPs this generation in games.
