Are you guys more in favor of sequels/series or new IPs
 

 
Real simple, when a company releases a game that achieves enough success to warrant a sequel or being turned into a series, generally speaking would you rather they go and do that or try their hand at developing something new?

I think its a case by case basis but if I was forced to choose I would rather get new IPs. I love sequels and series and some games absolutely warrant it. Its great to see a game and its ideas evolve over time and even more rewarding when it comes with a story or stories that are great as well. Itís also exciting when a series bucks most of their trends/tropes and the game is a hit.

But I ultimately like new IPs better. I think the aura of it being unknown goes a long way. Two of the best experiences I had this gen were with Sunset Overdrive and Bloodborne. You can argue SO took a lot more from other games than Bloodborne did, but the way it meshed what it took and still added its own flavor was amazing to play and I would say you canít get anywhere else. Bloodborne more or less introduced a new genre on top of being an amazing game. A game like GTA V is just as good, but doesnít hit like Bloodborne did because of this. Iím not gonna say GTA just fell back on whats worked in the past but Bloodborne took a lot more huge risks and overall feels like a fresher game.

We're getting a decent amount of new games now. For a minute in this gen it seemed like everything was a sequel. But we need new things to keep it fresh

I like both, most of my collection has been more sequels than new ips. I used to get a lot of new ips when I was younger, I don't buy as many games today. I like series but it's like this for me

I probably won't play a certain new IP for a long time because I'm not a fan of that series until part 3 or 4, something intrwst me.

New ips I like but they become series with to many games and sometimes they become boring. Bioshock 1, a*sassins Creed 1, dark souls, and others that grew into multiple series I was there since day 1.

Case by case basis, Ubisoft needs to let AC die and work on a new IP. Obviously Rockstar needs to bring another GTA but i'd like to see them work on something new also. CD Projekt Red will be doing it perfectly if CB2077 works out as expected. I think they will knock it out of the park, and if they go back to a Witcher game after that would be a perfect way of continuing a series.
