Top 5 Franchises You Want to See at E3 This Year

It's almost February and that can only mean one thing, it's time to start to think about this years Electronics and Entertainment Expo or in simple terms E3. I have been lucky enough to attend the last two E3's and will be able to attend this years show as well. Being able to attend E3 was one of my goals when I started out writing about video games and entertainment years back. Being able to get a sneak peak of the upcoming games and electronics is something I enjoy and find it special that I can play games that won't be out until later that year.

That being said, it's never too early to think about the top games/properties that could be at E3 this year in Los Angeles. Game properties come and go but they never truly stay away forever. This E3 could be the launch point for icons that we haven't seen in awhile! Let's get right into it.

    At E3 I want to see a whole load of new crazy IP. Old IP is great... but we need new epicness!

    I think we're in the same corner on this one. I'm an old-school guy but would love to see brand new properties. Unfortunately we're in a time where gaming is a business and no one takes risks anymore. You take a risk and if it doesn't work out, you get fired. That's why Code Name S.T.E.A.M and Splatoon were such shocks last year. It would be great to see companies take more risks like the old days of video gaming but it never happens anymore.

    Yep, maybe with tools like UE4 and the Unity updates coming soon, which lower dev costs, by 1 making it faster to make quality games, and 2 lowering the amount of people needed to make the game. Maybe we will see more new IP... I hope so, because Epic said that was their goal with UE4.

    those are valid points. Another factor could be how easy it is for indie developers to make games has become. You're right that the amount of time it takes has drastically declined over the years and quality games should/could be made faster.

    Give me new IP's or give me death! What do you think, too much?

    Maybe a little... I would go for, give me new IP or give me comatose (which I will then recover from)!!

    ok I'll sign on for that. I guess I wouldn't be able to play the new IP if death was involved.
