I have been wondering why this generation feels a little bland and a little less crowded.
I am not talking about the number of games releasing,that has been taken care by yearly and numbered releases of the same old franchises we had last generation.
I am talking about the lack of new franchise releases like we had last generation.I know,last generation was something BIG both in terms of lenght and popularity but most of last generations new franchises didn't come on the popular Wii or at the end of of last gen but in the starting 4-5 years.
I know HD Gaming was a new and BIG thing and the gaming industry was also booming with the economy(atleast at the start of the gen till 2008) but the breadth and depth of new releases was phenomenal.
Here's to list just a few:
Kane & Lynch
Gears of War
Star Wars Force Unleashed
Little Big Planet
Playstation All Stars
Red Dead Redemption
Left 4 Dead
Last of US
Here are some of the old franchise's that had new spinoff's or became BIG last gen:
Call of Duty
Battlefield Bad Company
Metal Gear Solid Revengeance
This gen we have seen more of a consolidation with same developers release numbered releases of the same established franchise with few new IP's.Last edited by lightningfunk - on 30 November 2018
