Favorite Series/ New IP for 8th Gen?

With the current generation of consoles coming to a close I thought It be fun to look back on all the new IP's and series and which ones were your favorites?

I'll admit I'm not as big into games as I once was but I thought this gen had some great games that were way better than last gen.

Apologies for not posting a poll as there are so many games that have come out. Maybe we can narrow down a list in this thread?

Favorite new IP:
Horizon Zero Dawn: This game blew me away with not only graphics but the story and main Character. And who doesn't love freaking Robot Dinosaurs!? lol

Favorite Continuing Series:
Assassins Creed- People like to rip on this series a lot but I still come back to it and always have a blast. Black Flag , Unity , Syndicate , and Origins are great games. I've only put a few hours into Odyssey but what I played was pretty fun.

Favorite Reboot:
Doom (2016)- Repetitive but so much freaking fun.

Favorite Remake:
Resident Evil 2- My favorite game from PS1 got a well deserved remake. The Mr.X gameplay was so nerve racking. They captured the tone of the game perfectly.

Notable Mention : Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Can't really comment much on this one as I only played a few chapters but what I played was pretty solid.

Favorite Online Game:
GTA Online- Crazy money grabbing economy / microtransactions gets crapped on a lot but I have never spent a dime on those stupid Shark Cards. Plenty of fun stuff to do for free.

Forgot to add Favorite new continuing series:
Watchdogs- The first game had a lot of flaws but I loved the extra activities and side missions. WD2 was way better improvement. I did a no kill playthrough. It was awesome. Legion looks Epic

Wouldn't Splatoon be the previous generation? Unless we're counting both the Wii U and the Switch as 8th gen.

Re: Favorite Series/ New IP for 8th Gen?

Overall, despite major improvements in quality of life changes, I think this generation is very inferior to the last. I felt like the 7th generation had a constant flow of AAA and AA games. And the increased development costs of the last decade or so really stopped developers from taking chances. Which wasn't and issue with the last generation. Anyhow....

Favorite New IP: Destiny
Favorite Continuing Series: Yakuza
Favorite Reboot: Ratchet & Clank
Favorite Remake: Final Fantasy VII
Favorite Online Game: Battlefield 4

The Wii U is an 8th generation console. The debate is if the Nintendo Switch is also an 8th generation console, or the start of the 9th generation of video game consoles.
