It felt like a very subdued year for gaming in 2014, with only a few games interesting me enough to want to play, let alone complete them. In fact, I have only finished one game on this list. Some of that is due to the length of these games, but the majority is just because, yeah, these games are ok, but I don't care enough to keep playing. The story is not that interesting, the gameplay is not that challenging, it's just... ok. During a year where I have had more free time than ever before, it was extremely disappointing.
2014 felt similar to 2012 in the sense that smaller or more average games; which would have perhaps fallen under the radar in a different year, were given a lot of coverage and talked about constantly. I'm sure a lot of this is down to the sheer number of titles pushed to 2015, which is set to be a fantastic rebound if everything goes well.
Wow, it feels like I just wrote a worst game of the year list. I do like games, honest. I played a lot of great games from previous years which I liked.
