Best of 2014

2014 was a very strange year. I ended by year long reign at Screened with the sudden information that the site would be shuddered. Then I found myself on the moderation team here on Giantbomb and have been spending my evenings banning spam bots.

Going through the year's releases I was surprised at what all I had played and surprised how little of it I considered GOTY material. Halo: MCC and Fable Anniversary are good examples of remakes that bank on nostalgia that do just enough to enjoy but not enough to honestly stand out. The games that did make it to this list stood out and took me out of what was often times a stressful and worrisome year for me.

The year is done, this list is done, and I'm off to dive back into the worlds that filled my off time so much.
