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!
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.
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.
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.
