The Top Ten Games I played in 2014
So... I didn't play a whole lot of new games this year.
In some ways I feel it's weird for me to try to play all the games I want to in any given year (as much as I used to try). For one, as much as I'd like to, I don't get paid to play video games. For two that's just unrealistic these days with the glut of games coming out at any given time. To even think there aren't enough games in existence at any given time has become a ludicrous notion.
So, I have a humongous backlog that I've been slowly playing through all year. Not to mention I got bit by a nostalgia bug and bought a ton of old Genesis games I once had but had to get rid of which originally dwindled my Genesis collection down but is now slowly returning. This means a lot of the games I played this year didn't come out this year. Several came out last year in fact.
You know what. Since this list is just my feelings anyway I'm not doing games that came out this year. I'm doing the 10 best games I played this year. The only rule I put on myself is that I had not played them before playing them this year. If that somehow puts you off you can leave now. I'm totally ok with that.
