Top 5 best new IPs of this Generation (So Far)

With talks about this generation ending in the next year or two, I thought it would be cool to look back at some of the new IPs that came from this generation and list down my favorites. There have been a lot of good IPs, and while this list my seem like I only like these games, there where plenty of good ones that didn't make the list like; Gears of War and Portal. To make the list, it has to be something I played.


Borderlands - 2009

Borderlands 2 - 2012

I really didn't care about the original Borderlands. I thought it was a monotone and uneventful. So why is it on the list? Because Borderlands 2 does what every sequel should do, takes what made the first one great and make it better. The promise that Borderlands had is met here in Borderlands 2. With a treasure trove of weapons, missions, and humor. Borderlands 2 is a fantastic game that will be remembered for a long time.


Mass Effect - 2007

Mass Effect 2 - 2010

Mass Effect 3 - 2012

No matter what people may think of the ending to Mass Effect 3, taking it as a whole this action RPG is some of the best action games of this generation. The journey that Commander Shepard makes is one of the best in gaming. From the start of this three part journey to the controversial end, Shepard is now part of the icons of gaming. Tight game play gets tighter as each new game is released, and while the RPG elements gets lost along the way, it didn't forget the wonderful universe Bioware has created. It's an action Sci-Fi epic in its truest form.


Dark Souls - 2011

Out of all the games in this list, Dark Souls is the most difficult, and it's also the most rewarding. The last I played was thirty hours in and I have not beaten it yet. To me, what makes Dark Souls special is not its difficulty, but how fair it is. Each death is your fault, and the game punishes you for it. At the same time, the game rewards you for exploring each dark area of the game. Dark Souls is Hardcore gaming at its finest.


Alan Wake - 2010

I love Alan Wake, from the second I started the game I knew that there was something special about it. With its awesome story and characters, this was a game world I would not mind to visit. One part LOST, one part Twin Peaks, and two parts Stephen King, Alan Wake doesn't star an action hero type, but instead a writer of crime novels. Way beyond his abilities, he searches for his missing wife. The DLC is actually worth playing, and I can't wait to see what happens in Alan Wake 2.


Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - 2007

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - 2009

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - 2011

Video Games has finally found their Indiana Jones. We've had Lara Croft for a while, but she didn't have any of that wit that makes Indiana Jones such a beloved character. Now with the Uncharted series, Nathan Drake is the video game equivalent of Indiana Jones. Nothing about Drake is original, but he makes it up with style and personality. The action set pieces in all three games are the best of all of gaming. These games are fast, funny, and a blast to play. In Uncharted 2, I clocked in about 120 hours in single player alone. With great stories, game play, and memorable characters makes Uncharted my most favorite new IP series of this generation so far.
