Because 2013 marked the beginning of the end for one console generation, the number of fresh IPs that could potentially blossom into new franchises was low, as most developers shifted their focus to sure things (sequels) or secret next-gen projects. If you’re a fan of sequels, last year had to be a deeply exciting time for you.
As for the rest of us, we had try our best to glean happiness from the paltry selection of new IPs introduced last year, almost exclusively from indie developers, and take solace in knowing that brighter times lie ahead.
