How on earth do you make a decision for best new IP (Intellectual Property / Franchise) in a year that gave us the nominees below… seriously.
We completely and utterly loved every single game in the nominees list and want to see a lot more of each one, but in the end we had to come to our final decision.
Here are the nominees for best new IP :
And the award goes to:
Winner: Heavy Rain
Heavy Rain takes our award for best new IP thanks to its wonderful blend of gameplay and cinematic flair that finds itself almost responsible for a new genre altogether.
Playing multiple characters in a deep and mature story that unfolds according to your very tough decisions was something that we just couldn’t get enough of and can’t wait to do again in future.
We are really looking forward to a sequel not only for a great new story but to see how the new “interactive film” controls improve and evolve.
