When someone usually asks this, I'd imagine they'd have a list of all or at least a few to come up with, but I don't really want to do that, so I'll just skip to wanting to read what you guys think. What are your favorite ones? Sorry if this is a question that has been asked before once or more in the past. This doesn't have to be your top favorite, but it might be more interesting if you did have a definitive one. Also, if you do have a definitive favorite, why is it your favorite? What, to you, makes it better than the rest of the ones you could feel the same about? And what new game in general to come out are you most excited about?

Portal, but the first Idea to pop into my head was Banjo and Kazzoie. If that's any indication of my psyche.

Dark Souls probably, that game has so much spunk and originality. Maybe Red Dead Redemption too, or maybe Lost Odyssey. Fuck, all three of them.

Mass Effect, probably. I think it's the only new franchise of which I played every iteration.

@NTM: Then there's so many to list all of them I liked.

  • Ghost Trick
  • The World Ends With You
  • Ace Attorney
  • Heavy Rain
  • Catherine
  • Mass Effect
  • Valkyria Chronicles
  • Journey
  • Gravity Rush
  • BioShock
  • Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale
  • Portal
  • Asura's Wrath
  • Assassin's Creed
  • Souls series
  • Saints Row

Really can't choose a favorite among them, but The World Ends With You was definitely one of the most notable among them. Upcoming new IPs I'm most excited about are The Last of Us, Watch Dogs and Beyond: Two Souls.

Demon's Souls and Dark Souls were the games that convinced me that there's still hope for the big budget industry.

Valkyria Chronicles, for being the best thing Sega has put out in the last decade (and subsequently squandered).

Portal, because duh.

And a lot of the crazy awesome Indie games that have been pumping out, Amnesia, Bastion, Lone Survivor, even Minecraft, etc.

I can say without a doubt that Mass Effect is my overall favourite new IP from this generation. Uncharted, Assassins' Creed, and Dead Rising are a few other favourites.

Assassin's Creed if I choose one. Historical fiction and endless possibilities go a long way for me.

There's a lot man... my top #1 favorite has to be Mass Effect but I also like

  • Uncharted
  • The World Ends with you
  • Valkyria Chronicles
  • Assassins's Creed
  • Portal
  • Bioshock
  • Journey
  • Alan Wake
  • Dissidia Final Fantasy
  • No More Heroes

... I think is easier to say the ones I don't like but there's too many [name thing you don't like] threads already for that.

As stuck in continuing existing franchises instead of creating new ones as the game industry sometimes seems to be, we have had some awesome new IPs this generation.

Borderlands, Assassin's Creed, Dead Island, Portal, Dragon Age (well, the first, anyways), Uncharted, Just Cause, LittleBigPlanet, Resistance, and The Witcher, in about that order.

There are also a ton of XBLA and PSN games that deserve mention too, but all I can think of off-hand right now is Puzzle Quest, Shadow Complex, Joe Danger, and Bastion.

@Soapy86: Yes, Arkham counts. If Arkham didn't then I wouldn't consider Portal to be either since it's in the same universe as Half Life.

Gears and Borderlands although I am starting to feel a serious bout of Gears fatigue. As for what I am waiting for, Dishonoured, Borderlands 2 and Htman will all be purchases for me.

The top one would easily be mass effect no doubt about it. Some good runners up are the souls series, uncharted, and assassins creed series (excluding 1)

Red Dead isn't a new IP, it was the sequel to Red Dead Revolver.

Uncharted games, Mass Effect (excluding 3), Souls Series, Dead Space, The Witcher, Gears, Batman AA and AC, not sure if the Bad Company games count even though i consider them spin-offs basically. And then a shit ton of downloadables for PC, XBLA (Shadow Complex) and PSN.

If I was just choosing one, I think I would say Bioshock. The original is my favorite game ever, and even though the second isn't too great and made me lose a bit of interest in Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite looks amazing.

Other notable IPs

  • Uncharted
  • Portal
  • Left 4 Dead
  • Assassins Creed
  • Batman: Arkham ____ (This counts, right?)
  • Rock Band
  • Borderlands

Edit: Best Downloadable IP would definitely be Bastion.

Dragon Age. Sure, it borrows heavily from LotR in a lot of places in its lore but it still manages to make it feel like its own world. The fact that a VERY subtle mention that Dragon Age 3 could take place in Orlais threw me into a nergasm coma. The fact that places like Orlais which has never been seen in a Dragon Age game yet is still a memorable piece of lore speaks volumes to how interesting the world and lore is. Dragon Age II took some mis-steps with some of the gameplay decisions but i still felt it was a worthy game in the series and that it also helped push Bioware into taking more direct feedback from fans on DA3.

To me IP means franchise, so I'd say Dragon Age, Assassins Creed, Uncharted, and inFamous (feel stupid every time I type that properly.) I say these given the context of the current generation, though I don't feel like many of these games will continue to be a strong IP moving forward. Uncharted will likely be pawned off to a lesser developer, inFamous (ugh) probably left in the dust, and Assassins Creed milked until it's dead. It still feels a little too early to say about Dragon Age though, I think what makes that game good can carry over into the next generation without anything lost, but it remains to be seen how much DA2 damaged the brand.
