Commenter Monsieur Froid returns to Speak Up on Kotaku once more to ask readers whether they want daring new intellectual property or games that build upon the tried and true.

Alrighty, Speak-Up, here's a question to tickle your brains. Which do you prefer: continuations of your favourite series or new and original IPs?

I'm looking forward to Arkham City, Uncharted 3, Skyrim and Bioshock Infinite as much as the next guy, but I'd much rather have Journey, L.A. Noire, Rage or LMNO simply because there's the added bonus of helping aid the industry into moving away from franchised works and into new, original settings/characters/stories.

About Speak Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have a forum on Kotaku called Speak Up. That's the place to post anecdotes, photos, game tips and hints, and anything you want to share with Kotaku at large. Every weekday we'll pull one of the best Speak Up posts we can find and highlight it here.
