The end of the 7th console generation is upon us, and to celebrate the 7th generation of consoles, these are the top 7 gaming franchises that were born this generation.

* Game series that were released in previous generations cannot make it on this list.

Voted for them but didnt get in :(

It's not that it's a bad list, just very short. We've had so many great new IPs this generation, it would be a task and a half to try and create a list of the absolute best. I'd be torn to leave most of them out.

Also it should be noted that Dance Central kicks Just Dance in the coochie.

It's a pretty good list.. though I would replace Just Dance with Batman, Darksiders, or Left for dead

Batman while awesome is not really a new game franchise (only a new developer who finally came up with a good game), and Darksiders had just one iteration so far so it's still not a "series".

But L2D is valid, and I'll definitely mention Valve's own Portal as well as Volition's Saint Row and MediaMolecule LBP alongside it. The rest of their list is pretty good I have to admit

The Batman Arkham franchise is new (and f**king awesome)

But Batman games have been made for a long time

I agree with all the picks but dance central...something else could have filled its place
