Top Games I Played 2014
List of the games which I enjoyed in 2014, regardless if they weren’t released in 2014.
I haven't played several of the key 2014 titles as of yet, mainly because I spent majority of my gaming time on a few PC multiplayer titles, retro games or older PC titles on my PS4 and Vita. Overall I feel it’s been a strong year, a great start for the new consoles, although the PC does seem to be where I spend a lot of my time. Now that I have the PC attached to my big TV in the lounge and the PS4 controller makes for an ideal PC gaming pad, I predict even more PC gaming in 2015.
I have had to spend more time in London for work (still amazes me how little people smile on the tube, and general down south), so my PSVita has had a lot of love. I also came to a conclusion in 2014, that tablet gaming is just not for me. I find the games lack a soul; they just don't keep my attention. Think I need a controller.
I picked up a XBONE towards the end of the year, and YES I prefer the PS4. But it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, the UI wasn’t as poor as what I remember it was at launch. So well done MS for its much needed updates, and I am hopeful that they continue to improve it. Competition, a strong Microsoft and Sony is good for all gaming, and hopefully will keep everyone trying harder and take much needed risks. I am a bit concerned that Sony has slowed down some, and maybe taking things for granted, fingers crossed they aren’t going back to ‘BIG HEADED SONY’.
Luke Luke Luke, loving all the gaming time I am having with Luke. More and more he beats me, he is mad for Fifa Ultimate team and Minecraft. I even setup and now host a Minecraft server for him and his mates, with mods installed that they picked. It’s fantastic to see him enjoying the medium so much, and not spending too much time watching crap TV. Teaching him modding, talking about gaming with him, love it. And it does make me smile, listening to him talking to his friends online, whilst playing an online game, and watching a gaming video on Youtube.
He wants a PS4, let’s see what happens. It is sad (maybe sign of the times) that both he and his mates have no interest in the WiiU. I think he and his mates have spent more time on my Mame Cabinet, than they have on the wiiU (which is just next to his console in the games rooms), NInty needs to do something, even mariokart couldn’t hold their attention for to long, back to Minecraft, Fifa and Garden Warfare they went.
