Game of The Year 2014 Users Choice
This list just randomly appeared among my other lists. I'm just copying the contents of my "Favorite games of 2014" in here, in case it'll be used for something.
Other games I tried to play but couldn't this year:
- Shadow of Mordor (couldn't wrap my head around the controls)
- Far Cry 4 (couldn't get it to load)
- Landmark (couldn't get a stable framerate above 8 fps)
Games I wish I would've gotten around to:
- Wasteland 2
- Divinity: Original Sin
- Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut
- Alien: Isolation
- Starpoint Gemini 2
- Planetary Annihilation
- Dark Souls II
Favorite games of 2014
|8. Strike Vector |
Online deathmatch Terminal Velocity!
|9. Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God |
I guess technically the import version I play came out in 2013, but it's not really out here until later in 2014. An actual, turn based, roguelike isn't something I expected to find in the Vita library.
|3. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! |
I was really surprised by how much I liked this one, considering I really didn't like Borderlands 2.
|5. Rogue Shooter: The FPS Roguelike |
2.5D roguelite FPS. Got plenty of issues. Inconsistent art style and not all that interesting randomly generated level designs. But it's got heart.
|7. Luftrausers |
|1. Ziggurat |
Hexen as a roguelite! Pretty rad!
|6. Heavy Bullets |
|2. Strife |
If we'll allow people to put GTA 5 or The Last of Us in this year's GOTY lists, surely we could also allow the updated re-release of one of the most interesting Doom engine games. It's not quite Hexen, but does some really fascinating stuff within the confines of the already in 1996 dated game engine. Night Dive Studios' Veteran Edition released on Steam in 2014 also updates the visuals in some impressive ways, and features Steamworks multiplayer, reportedly with Steam Workshop support coming down the line.
|4. SunAge: Battle for Elysium |
While it technically was released in 2007, it's first in 2014 available on a platform I can use. A cool 2D RTS, somewhat in the vein of Westwood's Tiberian Sun or Activision's Dark Reign.
|10. NeonXSZ |
I've barely played this, but I need a tenth game on the list, and I did enjoy the hour or so I spent with it. It's pretty much Descent, but with less intuitive controls and art. But, hey, we don't get a lot of 6DOF FPSes these days.
