For me it was Dead Space up until they made 3. Loved the atmosphere and sound and it really brought a lot of cool ideas to the genre. And it was pretty tense at times. Didn't really feel that way since REmake. I also like how the developers weren't really afraid to make something scary for fear of bad sales. That of course changed with 3 and we all know how that turned out. What about you, SW?

I can't pick just one I'd have to say it's a 3 way tie between Uncharted, Gears, and The Last of Us. But there were still many more like Little Big Planet, Resistance, Alan Wake. We got a lot of new good IP's last gen from both M$ and Sony, not counting what third party developers gave us like Assassin's Creed, Naruto, Borderlands.....compared to last gen this gen has some big shoes to fill. Expectations will be high.

Probably Mass Effect.

The first 2 were just epic and amazing the whole way through.

Uncharted would be second

So hard to pinpoint a single one.... Perhaps Demon's Souls... Maybe Mirror's Edge now that I'm reminded by @foxhound_fox.

I think Demon's Souls deserves the honor. BUT Mirror's Edge sure was revolutionary on a visual level.

@SolidGame_basic: Same here ! Dead space 1 was it for me with mass effect close enough.

But to be fair i think Portal franchise was phenomenal too

The Souls series is the undisputed King, Queen, Prince and Princess all at once. Nothing came 100km close to it.

Mass Effect is the landmark IP of last gen.

Honorable mention to Batman Arkham, Assassin's Creed, and Uncharted.

I liked Dead Space 3, I don't know why everyone else hates it with such a passion. Sure, not as great as say the 1st or 2nd game but not a bad game by a long shot. If anything I felt really hurt this games commercial viability though it was the horrible demo, the actual game (especially after mastering the weapon crafting system) was pretty cool.

Anyhow, I'd put Dead Space as one of my favorite new IPs of last gen... I've a feeling it'll stay there as a 7th gen franchise now with Visceral being put on Battlefield development. The other series I'd say is among my favorite as an IP that got it's footing last gen is Mass Effect.

There were lots of new IPs last gen I loved but most of them just single games and such, not many turned into solid series like Dead Space or Mass Effect.

But, whatever, EA, evil, durrr.....making addictively good games I can't help but fork over my money to play. I was day one buyer for each Mass Effect and Dead Space game, no regrets here.

Really hard to choose my absolute favourite. Gears of War is definitely up there as one of my favourites. First one was great, second was even better, and the third game was just godly. I also loved Lollipop Chainsaw, Shadows of the Damned, No More Heroes, Left 4 Dead, the first Mass Effect ( haven't played the others yet ), Dead Island and Sleeping Dogs. Batman: Arkham Asylum and City were also really good too, if they count as a new IP. Really, there was lots of new IPs I loved, and I can't choose my number one favourite.

Mass Effect. #2 and especially #3 where just amazing games.

I want to pick Borderlands, but as phenomenal as Borderlands 2 is I can't pick one game over the entirety of the Mass Effect series.
