GamesRadar - 2014 has been a strange year for video games. Metacritic’s raw numbers, which were highlighted recently, would have you believe it was a thoroughly disappointing year. A paltry nine games achieved an average 90%+ review score, and only three of these were original games (as in, not HD re-releases). If we’re going by averages here, it all looks a bit miserable. So, why have sales of PS4 and Xbox One been so impressive? Why are people still buying consoles in the face of such apparent mediocrity?
