I'm trying to make a list of games to play before the end of the year and was wondering what everyone has been playing and enjoying.

I got to into Dark Souls 2 for a while and kinda missed some great titles.

Along with Dark Souls 2 and Mario Kart 8(love playing multiplayer with the wife), Shovel Knight is one of my favorite games so far this year.

Whats your favorite games of 2014 so far give me some ideas.....

Games released in 2014? I think the only one I've played so far is South Park & if you got into the show it's worth picking up. I picked up the Wolf Among us & the second season of The Walking Dead in the recent Steam sale & have pretty high hopes for those but haven't played them yet.

I did back Next Car Game, one of the few games I have & it's already amazing, should be coming out later this year.

I think it's probably one of my top 10 favorite games of all time.

The Wolf Among Us probably.

Transistor definitely. Wolfenstein was cool and Watch Dogs is better than people say. Wolf Among Us has been great so far but they could still fuck up the landing. Unless Destiny actually lives up to the hype or Far Cry 4 ends up being better than 3 in every way then Transistor is my GOTY.

Shovel Knight! Still haven't played neither Wolfenstein nor Transistor, so it's not set in stone yet, but right now Shovel Knight is my game of the year!

Mario Kart 8, not even close for me.

I always keep a list during the year, so that making my top 10 at the end of the year barely requires any work. I basically write down all titles I've played on which platforms and I already put them in order, but that can obviously change as new titles are released. So far, this is my list for 2014:

  1. Dark Souls II
  2. Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
  3. Jazzpunk
  4. Watch Dogs
  5. Wolfenstein: The New Order
  6. Transistor
  7. South Park The Stick of Truth
  8. The Mighty Quest For Epic Loot

There hasn't been a ton of really great stuff yet, I feel. I like the games that are on the list I have for sure, but with the exception of the top 3, all of them could fall of at any point as soon as I get my hands on better games.

Dark Souls II, 1001 Spikes, Bravely Default. That's probably the top 3 at the moment. Those are cool games!

Lightning Returns, Bravely Default, Mario Kart 8 so far.

Fract OSC. Solving a puzzle and then having a choir of synthesizers join in on the music you just made is one of the most satisfying feelings I've felt from playing a video game.

South Park, Dark Souls 2, & Jazzpunk are at the top for me.

Then there's Wolfenstein, Titanfall, Valiant Hearts, Transistor, Octodad, & a few others a notch below.

By default it is South Park as it is the only 2014 game I've completed, but I didn't really care for it that much, gave it 3/5.

South Park, Transistor, Wolfenstein, and you can't go wrong with some MGS: Ground Zeroes! Watch Dogs is only worth it if you got a PC and install those E3 files.

Hearthstone. Definitely Hearthstone. DKC Tropical Freeze is really close second though. Both games are world class.

Not a whole lot going on so far this year, which has actually made this year great for getting into some older games (finally played through Persona 3 this year, and I'm currently playing Quake 1!). As far as games released this year, I enjoyed Transistor and Wolfenstein more than anything else by a decent margin, although Mario Kart and Shovel Knight are both pretty rad.

inFamous: Second Son

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends

Mario Kart 8

Both The Banner Saga and Transistor totally blew me away. Wouldn't be surprised if either were my game of the year.

I've really enjoyed The Wolf Among Us up to episode 4. Here's hoping it has a decent finale. Other than that, the only game from 2014 that I've really played was Dark Souls 2. Which I thought was fantastic, and is almost definitely getting a place in my top 10 this year.

From this year, I've played Wolfenstein, Bravely Default, and Might and Magic X. All three are vastly different games, but of them I enjoyed Wolfenstein the most.

Child of Light, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, Watch Dogs, The LEGO Movie Video Game, The Wolf Among Us, South Park: The Stick of Truth, inFamous: Second Son, Wolfenstein: The New Order.

I've been playing games, but not a lot of this-year games so far.

Top three are Luftrausers, Chrono Phantasma, and Mario Kart 8???

Dark Souls 2 (I love it)

EDF 2025

To be fair I haven't played inFamous yet - buying copy this weekend. Fingers crossed, but from comments on this thread my hopes are high.

Mario Kart 8 and Shovel Knight are the only 2014 games I've bought, so those are my favorites so far. Honestly I can't wait for summer to end and all the games I'm excited for to come out.

Danganronpa. Pretty sure Shovel Knight will be up there as soon as I play it.

Not much to be honest, I can't ever remember a year so devoid of truly great games. There's been some good and very good ones, but nothing I'd consider a clear all time great so far. It's like the year of the 4 star game

Lightning Returns is the only thing that seems to have potential so far, but I haven't finished it yet.

I will say I'm kind of surprised to not see Broken Age mentioned yet. It may not be an amazing game but it's one of the better 2014 releases I've seen.

Well, only half of it has been released so far...I definitely loved the first part though.

sure that's completely fair, eventhough it's only half done I just can't think of much better than that half so far. Been that kinda year so far.

So last year, it was December and I couldn't even fill out a top ten with games I really loved. I loved 1-4, liked 5-8, and 9-xxx were placeholders that I could never really decide on.

In 2014, I've already filled a top ten and I'm pretty solid on the top seven already, with tons of games I'm anticipating like Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, Dragon Age Inquisition, Witcher 3 and Forza Horizon 2.

  1. South Park: The Stick of Truth
  2. Transistor
  3. Endless Legend
  4. Valiant Hearts: The Great War
  5. The Banner Saga
  6. Shovel Knight
  7. Trials Fusion
  8. Banished
  9. Child of Light
  10. The Last Federation

2014 is hot hot heat muddafukkaz

Hmm, nothing has GRABBED me this year...

I had a lot of fun playing Infamous: Second Son, LUFTRAUSERS and Transistor. Great gameplay in all three titles, all a little short lived.

But I've had more fun replaying older games. Currently drinking in Bioshock again. What a great game. :)

Titanfall stands alone as the only game I have loved this year with Lococycle coming in second as a game I had a really good time with. Yeah, you heard me.

I have enjoyed Dark Souls, Mario Kart, Wolfenstein, Infamous and Watch Dogs also.

I'd really like to play Shovel Knight. Still irritated I can't play it.

For me it's Child of Light, Wolfenstein, Watch_Dogs and Metal Gear 5. Yeah I know MGS5 is a very short game, however I've actually enjoyed it and I'm trying to get most if not all of the extra missions unlocked.
