  • To be honest, I have yet to finish this thing. I only played it for an hour like one hour ago. But holy crap, Alex was right. This is something else. I always appreciate the crazy in my games, but Jazzpunk gets so many jokes so damn right, which is something I really appreciate. No matter what happens in the rest of the game, I'll always love it. From plants that feel like they're politcal prisoners over porn addicted frogs to a smoking and scopophobic camera. Jazzpunk is something else. You should play it. No, seriously. Play! It!

  • Expectations were high on this one. Not just because it was made by Greg Kasavin's team behind Bastion, but I was excited to play this the day they announced it about two years ago. Everything about it felt right, the moment I saw it and I was not wrong. Nothing is better than a game fulfilling your high expectations, besides being surprised by one, maybe. The storytelling could have been a bit more overt with character information and background info being on all those abilities and all, but besides that Transistor was fantastic. I just hope, with their next game, Super Giant Game don't create an excuse to have a cool voice be part of you journey for a third time in a row.

  • Thank you, Vinny Caravella. I should probably show my gratitude to the developers of this fantastic little adventure. Not nearly as fun as most of the other games on my list, but the new studio Over the Moon got everything else right. I kind of regret not knowing about the title when it was still a Kickstarter campaign, because I'd tell my past self to back the hell out of this little gem. I have no idea how they could top this story with the next episode and I have no idea where it's going, but I'll be there on the very first day.

  • I played this game. Over 10 years ago. Probably more than five times. But even after all that time, the remake of the GBA original was still a better experience than Pokémon Y was last year. Maybe it's the nostalgia factor, but Game Freak never executed on the sense of exploration you get as well as with this generation. And, growing up, that's what Pokémon was always about for me. I'm already mourning for the loss of the DexNav feature that the A team is probably going to ignore in the next games.

  • The Donkey Kong Country games for the SNES are fucking garbage. There, I said it. And you know what? I'll pile on even more: Not a surprise, considering Rare made them. So why is this newest entry on my list? Because it's actually a good video game. The visuals don't impress you in 2014, like the original did when it came out, but Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is one of the best 2D platformers I played in a long time. There is another one, even higher on my personal list, but I feel like those are two different types of platformer. This one is more platforming and less combat-focused and Retro Studios really nailed it in that area. Also, the soundtrack is incredible. Don't let a particular video game site fool you.

  • IT'S THE EIGHT MARIO KART. Well, technically, it's the tenth one, but no matter what the number is at this point: There have been a lot of these games. Therefore, I can't judge someone who just doesn't care about the series anymore since the gameplay never really changed enough. But honestly, I don't want it to change "enough". They cracked the code with the very first game, but that doesn't alter the fact that it's still a heck of a time to race through these ridiculous and delightful courses. It's not my favorite Mario Kart, but it's probably the best one. And this game looks fucking sharp.

  • Slightly overrated by some websites(I don't want to mention any names, but Giant Bomb knows what I'm talking about), but still a fantastic take on the open world genre that became extremely stale over the course of the last generation, barring a few exceptions. Solid combat and the engaging Nemesis System make this game, while old tropes from both its genre and its story lessen the otherwise fantastic Lord of the Rings adaptation. If you want to decapitate the heads of a hoard of orcs in less than ten seconds, this is the game for you. And fuck you, Taz "Brawler". Seriously, I hate that asshole.

  • I don't want to say that I was fan of franchise before it became popular, but I was a fan of the franchise before it became popular. Fantastic gameplay mechanics couple with incredibly snappy and tight controls combined with the never-ending urge to get a perfect rating make Velocity 2X a great successor to Velocity and Velocity Ultra. The feeling of playing something entirely new is not present, but I still want to mention it on my top ten this year as it's still so much fun.
