I have to agree with you that the gaming industry does tend to do more of the same monotonous garbage instead of new ideas and IPs (see any WWII game made with the exception of CoD 1 and 2). However, sometimes more of the same is still fun. Like your example with Halo. Yes, gameplay wise, Halo 3 brough little to nothing new to the table. It brought a few new weapons and vehicles, as well as pretty graphics, and as such was just more of the same. Yet this wasn't a bad thing because it was still fun. While yes we need some innovation in games like Bioshock or Portal or Zak and Wiki, sometimes more of the same isn't exactly bad.
