It's been a weird year for video games. A lot of really superb titles hit this year, but I had some trouble parsing out one that stood clearly above the others. This is almost never the case for me.
It was another big year for indie/smaller titles. I'm no AAA hating hippie, but it's quite obvious that the current playground for innovation and weird ideas lies in the indie space. It's also a generational launch year, which typically means we get a huge drought leading up to the console launch, followed by a cavalcade of boring/tired games that look pretty. That was pretty much the case this year, but that doesn't mean there weren't fantastic games to play. Enough jibber-jabbering! On with the list!
Looking back at this list, I definitely don't feel quite the same about the order as I did in 2013. GTA 5 grew on me a lot over the last 3 years, and if I were to reorder this list today, I would put it at 2 or maybe even 1. I'll leave the list as is... as an odd piece of my gaming history.
