eGamer’s Best Of E3 2012: Best New IP
While there weren’t many brand new IPs revealed at E3, we did get to finally see some of them in action this year, and it was worth the wait. Finally, it seems like genuine innovation is on the up in gaming once again, and it’s actually the new IPs getting us more excited than the sequels for once.
Read our thoughts down below.
Dean had valid reasons for choosing Watch Dogs:
Watch Dogs, because it appears different. The Last Of Us is similar to others, and BEYOND: Two Souls reminds me of Heavy Rain because of the interactive drama relation. Watch Dogs looks like a unique amalgamation of various games.
Azhar struggled to choose:
I honestly can’t decide between Watch Dogs, The Last Of Us and Beyond: Two Souls. If I choose to drop Watch Dogs because I haven’t seen enough of its gameplay and mechanics just yet to decide if I understand how it works or if I’m going to have super high expectations for it or not, I still find it difficult to choose between how damn interesting Beyond looks and how amazing the dynamic gameplay of The Last Of Us is. If I’m forced to choose, I’d probably say Beyond: Two Souls because I’m a massive fan of Heavy Rain and was totally captured by the demo of this game.
Alessandro’s choice was predictable to us:
Again, Watch Dogs takes the cake here. It’s one of the most innovative titles to be shown off in a while, but we have yet to see how it transforms into a stand-alone title.
Caveshen had an outcast opinion:
DmC. I don’t care that it’s a reboot, it totally counts as new IP and I adored the trailer for it. My eyes bled rainbows.
Abdul-Gaffoor chose the big three:
Watch Dogs or Beyond: Two Souls. The Last of Us is a close third. Both games just have so much promise and potential and blew me away with what was shown at E3.
Adam couldn’t get over The Last Of Us:
The Last Of Us. I love the Uncharted series like a man who constantly obsesses over every Bioware release, believing it to be the gospel of the videogame gods. Naughty Dog have developed some of my favourite franchises ranging from Crash Bandicoot, to Jak and Daxter. Now with The Last Of Us I am once again in love with Naughty Dog, even more so. The game is filled to the brim with dynamic action, engaging characters and a setting, a post-apocalyptic world, which is fresh through the vision that Naughty Dog has taken with The Last Of Us. Thank you Naughty Dog.
Well, these are our opinions. What are yours?
