In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Tell GR: Do Gamers Really Want New IP?

Yes, we all love Dishonored. I'm happy to see a new intellectual property selling well, generating plenty of buzz, and basically being an awesome game to play. If your game is all about sneaking around and murdering people, getting a Ninja Nick Tan seal of approval is a high watermark.

But I can't help but wonder if that's what gamers really want? Despite being critically polarizing, Resident Evil 6 has still done well, considerably so in the Japanese market place. The same can be said for XCOM's return after a long hiatus. This fall season is packed to the gills with sequels and rehashes, including two high-profile assassins. In fact, beyond Dishonored, I can't think of another new IP with an opportunity to rake in cash at retail this Fall.

It's easy to say you want new IP, but if you're not there on day 1 shelling out the cash, does it matter?

Do gamers really want new IP? And if they do, are they voting with their dollars?
