Probably one of the Mario Party Parties... can't pick which one though. That's just the first thing that popped into my head.

Off the top of my head, the Hatsune Miku QL NEEDS to be on this list.

Mario Party Party 2 is easily one of my favourite videos of the year. The sheer lack of joy from everybody except Dan as they play that "garbage game for babies" is somehow very entertaining. The Dan vs Jeff fire rope jump would certainly be one of the highlights.

I think that guy yelled "cake factory"...

As already mentioned above, Velvet Sundown QL. One of GB's all time best, let alone in 2014.

Fucking Boyle.

Probably Mario Party Party 2 due to the DWGF factor Jeff spoke of. Speaking of, there's no forgetting Boyle from Velvet Sundown either

Just for fun I've made a top 10 of sorts of my favorite GB videos and video series this year. There was a LOT of good stuff this year though, so I kinda cheated and made it a top 13 ;)

  1. Mario Party Party
  2. Quick Look: Velvet Sundown
  3. Vinny Bought Bot Colony. Now What?
  4. Mario Party Party 2
  5. Metal Gear Scanlon
  6. Quick Look: Don Bradman Cricket 14
  7. Demo Derby Playstation Underground V3 I3
  8. GDC 2014 Live Stream
  9. Breaking Brad: Demon’s Souls
  10. Quick Look: Enforcer. Police. Crime. Action

Honorable mentions:
Splunkin' with Scoops
Giant bomb vs a Roller Coaster
Quick Look: The Last Tinker: City of Colors

All in all one of the best years ever for GB content. Can't wait for goty stuff.

I'm a big fan of the Dan and Jeff spin tires... There was just a level of joy from Jeff I hadn't heard in a long time. I think they deserve quick look group of the year.

The entire Extra Life marathon is pretty great, but I'd say the 24 hours with Jason and Lisa are my favorite

12/5 UPF for sure! I'd vote for the first couple Demo Derby's and definitely the one with Jeff..

Also Im not sure of the date but I remember Vinny's last UPF before leaving for New York having an amazing Gang Beasts segment...

I was half-considering doing the thing that some user did a few years ago and just taking nominations for "Quick Look of the Year" and "Premium Video of the Year", but this will do just as well.

Correct answers:

  1. Don Bradman Cricket
  2. Both Mario Party Parties
  3. Velvet Sundown, both videos.
  4. Bot Colony, the premium video especially but the Unfinished isn't half bad either.
  5. Get Spooked Boi
  6. Vinnyvania, specifically the moment where Vinny finds out that Dracula has a second form.
  7. Pineview Drive
  8. Multiple E3 nightcasts, plenty of guest highlights, be they shirtless Greg Miller, Cara Ellison talking about taco-based intestinal discomfort or Johnny V in the same room as Shu Yoshida.

If I had to pick one video - it would probably be the first UPF of December 2014.

The Last Tinker : City of Colour (That mushroom dude )

Majestic Nights (budget 80's game with Vinny & Alex)

Disney Fantasia

Fenix Rage (making Dan rage)Fibbage ( The part where Dirty Dan steals the points and wins the game)

My Ex boyfriend the space Tyrant

Hohokum (Yoga Yeff)

Extra Life also had great stuff. Especially the Drew, Alexis, Mary, Ian, Dave stream. Drew crashlanding the airplane and walking away from the crash was awesome.

Sniper Elite III QL - Great chat and incredible lunacy, maybe the first real insight into the human glee explosion that is Dan? "Oh. My. God."

Mario Party 1 - The beginning of the end of everything. #2 is great, but #1 is the blank slate where the venom, surprise, indignation, humour, betrayal, and anger appear - the growing, sickening, realisation of just what they have let themselves in for. Seeing Jeff's stony facade occasionally crack when things went pear-shaped for the other players is a delight.

Metal Gear Scanlon - Just because. A proper celebration of just how mental the MGS games are.

Brad and Jeff's Destiny videos - Including the launch, QL, and the raid. Interesting to see Brad's sickness grow as the videos were released - from a lowly lvl8 during the QL up to whatever awful, grinding sink-hole he reached for the raid.

I've been really busy this year so I haven't watched as much but I really enjoyed the Unplugged Avalon video, since nobody else has mentioned that.

That last tinkerer review was amazing. Jeff mimicking the mushroom creature and Brad trying not to loose it was so funny!

@babychoochoo: This has definitely got to be worth a mention. Lisa and Lisa's husband deserve their own show.

Other than that: Fuck Boyle.

GB vs Rollercoaster, The Last Tinker, Fantasia, Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishment.

Most for being funny, the Sherlock one was great because it was sort of like a Let's Play and really long.

Don't forget Blackbay Asylum. Classic example of Vinny being very generous to a very bad game.

I also really liked Police Cop: You're Under Arrest or whatever that game was called.

Mario Party Party 2 is heads and tales above everything else they've done this year, in fact I'd argue it's the most I've laughed at Giant Bomb stream ever.
