Correct, sir. Basically an intellectual property is classified as any individual franchise or series in gaming. Super Mario Bros. is an IP. Halo is an IP. God Of War is an IP. Anytime a new game comes out that is unique in that no other game has been release in that series you will hear people call it a "new IP."

Hope that clears everything up.

Haha, it means that too. But in the specific context of video games, IP means intellectual property.
