Some of the best selling games? Typical COD, just dance, FIFA. Which is fine... But why can't something unique and new be a best seller of the year? Like say... The witcher 3, starbound, bayonetta 2, puppeteer. A lot of people are just like 'cod is the best. That's all I ever play'. But there's so much more... Why not try them?

It's a phenomenon not at all unique to video games.

And it's not like new IPs can't do well, but I don't think there's a strong chance of a new IP video game being bigger than an established franchise.

But I guess what you're looking for is the equivalent of "Avatar" in the video game space.

Bayonetta 2 was dead as soon as it was announced to be a WiiU exclusive. I love Bayonetta but I'm not buying a WiiU to play it.

Do you?


I try to be an open gamer. Some games, like outlast I WONT play because it'd freak me out... But I tried dead space and loved it. But the point is that it seems that a lot of people just get the shooter, or the violent gritty action game. Why not try a platformer? A puzzle game? Something ELSE.
