You must be new to gaming. Ever heard of Nintendo? They have been making the same games since the 80s. Im not against new IPs but i dont judge something because its not new. RE7, FF15, MKX, SF5, UC4, GOW4, GEARS4, GT7, FORZA 6, MARIO KART 8, ZELDA, DONKEY KONG etc are all fantastic franchises that dont need to be new IPs to keep gamers gaming. Dont fix whats not broken. For example Halo Wars 2 is an entirely different game to Halo 5, Forza Horizon 3 is nothing like Forza 6. Just because its from the same franchise doesnt mean its dull or boring. The reason i brought into Consoles was because of those games mentioned above. I wont continue buying consoles if they started to shelve all there amazing IPs.
Been here since 4th generation, because the two previous generation before that i wasn't old enough to get passed the first level in Sonic.
It's your opinion, if you prefer playing the same titles with no new titles to fresh things up.. It's your choice but new titles should always be welcomed
But he is kind of right though, people are getting more excited about the idea of a sequel of one of their beloved franchises. We saw it last year with sea of thieves and the dissapointment that their was no new conker/battletoads/Banjo, Most people don't say they want a new IP from bethesda or Rockster but instead they want Elder scrolls VI/Red dead 2. I think those kind of wishes are pretty normal. I really enjoyed the Old crash games and Forza horizon games that's why I am also more excited about a new Crash/forza horizon game instead of Sony saying we making a new platformer ip or Ms making a new race game.
