Thought this might make for some interesting discussion here on the forums, or on the show if Garnett and company feel like jumping in.
What is your favorite new IP of this generation?
I've thought about it quite a few times, and while the choice sometimes changes immediately after finishing a particularly great game, I always seem to fall back to the same answer with time.
I love exploring the world, both figuratively and literally. I love jumping, climbing and racing through environments I've never been to before in a game. I love uncovering the secrets of the conspiracies back in time, and the grander one that connects them. I love playing the part of the assassin, armed with all manner of badass weapons. And I love how cohesively the games tie all these different elements together.
I cannot WAIT for the next AC game, which looks to answer my wishes for another Altair adventure. And I double can't wait for the proper Assassin's Creed 3.
