During the last two years of the generation 7 of gaming consoles, we didn't see any risky new games. We only saw sequels and rehashes. Last of Us and Dishonored were far inbetween and we didn't see a lot of them. Now there is no excuse for developers and to rehash things. Yet we see remaster after remaster, sequel after sequel. Now don't get me wrong, we had a few new ip's this year. That is great. But in 2015 i expect there to be way more games that are new and fresh that haven't been announced yet.
Now there are some games that do something new even though they might now have succeded totally. Destiny is a game i've played a lot. I still would have liked to see some story to it. But it does something bold with strikes, raids and pvp in a game with open areas. Even if you hate Ubisoft, they did release Valiant Hearts, Watch Dogs, The Crew and Child of Light. All of them new ip's. You might not like Watch Dogs or even The Crew. But at least we are seeing new games emerge.
The indie scene is always innovating. So we will see a lot of fresh ideas coming that way like No Man's Sky for example. The indie scene is ripe with ideas that the big companies doesn't want to take.
This coming year i think will set the tone for innovation for gaming. Because we saw a lot of new games during the last generation of games during this period we are about to start in. Let's hope we don't see every games remastered or just sequels all over the place. I want to experience new things Abzu, Rime, No Man's Sky, etc are all what i am looking forward to.
