This generation of gaming has mostly seen sequels, and the lack of new franchises is a bit disappointing. We’ve been getting new Call of Duty’s and Pokemon’s continuously, but there have been very few IPs this generation. Few as they might be, though, they’ve been generally very good, and definitely have the potential to go on to become the premier gaming franchises a few years down the line, if handled right. Here’s a list of seven such new IPs, the seven most amazing new franchises introduced this generation.

Don’t forget to leave your comments behind to tell us what you think.

Without further ado, let’s begin!

7. Resistance

The Resistance series offers a breathtaking storyline, following the course of an alternate history, where, after the Second World War, an alien race known as Chimera invaded our planet and to0k over. The post apocalyptic, beautifully imagines world can give you goosebumps, and the fast and furious gunplay will keep you on your toes the whole time. The only thing one can fault the Resistance series for is never having succeeded at providing a proper online experience, but hopefully, that will change with Resistance 3.

6. Dragon Age

The Dragon Age series might not have had a very good 2010, and fans may not have gotten the sequel they wanted in Dragon Age II, but the series is, undeniably, one of the best IPs to have been introduced this generation. Dragon Age: Origins told an epic, high fantasy tale with heavy, hardcore RPG based gameplay. Dragon Age II offered a fresh new take on the series, completely revamping the combat, introducing a new character, and a new setting. And while fans may not have liked Dragon Age II much, it cannot be denied that the ending of the game set stage for a sequel perfectly. We’re curious to see where BioWare takes the series with Dragon Age III.

5. LittleBigPlanet

This generation has had few games games ass imaginative and innovative as LittleBigPlanet was. Sure, some people might say the platforming of the LBP games is fundamentally flawed. But nobody in their right mind would disagree with the fact that the games are extremely fun, charming, refreshing and imaginative. While we have seen the Play, Create, Share functions in many other games before, LBP took that to a whole new level, offering unprecedented amounts of freedom with creation. LBP2 took that one step forward, letting us create entire games, so that the replay value of the game was sky-high. Surely, if anyone ever gets their hands on a LittleBigPlanet game, they never want to put it down.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • Gears of War really?

  • How can any list of new IPs this generation be taken seriously if it doesn’t include Wii Sports?

    I don’t care about your personal opinions of the game or the “Casuals” it is THE new IP of the generation and deserves to be on the list!

  • These franchises have been teased for several years before birth, bringing most of these games to be almost 4 years old.

  • Gears of war definitely is deserving to be in top 3 of this list. So much from that game has been copied or imitated by other games it’s ridiculous. I can’t argue with the top three, though for me I might have put Mass Effect no. 1, then Uncharted, then Gears, even though I think gears has had the most influence on other games and modes than either of those two. What multiplayer game out today doesn’t have some version of horde mode? Not to mention many shooters modifying the gears cover system. Plus chainsaw on the end of your gun? It deserves top three for that alone. It’s tough to beat sneaking behind somebody in MP and chainsawing them from crack to cranium and watching the blood flow!!! Also, even though I don’t play assassin’s creed, I have to believe that game deserves to be in the top ten this gen.

  • What a joke Uncharted before Gears? Uncharted is completely unoriginal, they took Tomb Raider and Gears and combined them. Not to mention Gears franchise beasts Uncharted in score and sales, Gears 3 is the biggest preordered game of 2011 Uncharted not even the top 10!

    • wow just for you, Uncharted is the most awarded game of all time, and is way higher scored than Gears, The only way gears beats it is in terms of sales. Oh did I mention that gears 2 sucks hard? I could not finish it because its so damn boring 😛 but hei just my opinion.
      Uncharted deserves to be on the top, because its the best!

  • I consider ME to be higher than Gears.

  • “It doesn’t have half the appeal that Mario does”

    What a retarded thing to say, Uncharted and Mario is two completly different games. It’s like saying
    “oh hey Bioshock is really cool and one the most creative titles this decade, but it is only half as appealing as metroid, that’s the real shizzle, lololol xD”

    Why isn’t bioshock on the list? Sorry this is way to opinionated to be a serious article.

  • for honorable mentions:
    1. KillZone (KZ2 was the first game to showcase the true potential of PS3. It should’ve been mentioned.)
    2. Batman (Arkham Asylum was great!)
    3. Call of Duty (if you wanna talk about sales, nothing beats COD)
    4. Demon’s Souls

  • The IP that will define the generation will of course be Wii Sports, whether we like it or not. I personally find it a lot of fun.
