2014 PUG Game of the Year Awards: Day Two

Jonathan Nielson writes: "When I sit down every December to think about the game I will hold up as the best of that year, generally there are one or two that have been occupying that space in my mind beforehand. 2014 has been no different.

Thinking back to this summer, I remember hearing people in the games industry talking about many unique and fun games, but Yacht Club's masterful Shovel Night and Ubisoft's enchanting Child of Light were by far the most interesting to me. I surprised even myself at first when I realised that here, at the end of the year, I wasn't even considering a AAA title as the best I'd played in the last 12 months."

Was I the only one that thought COL outstayed it's welcome by it the end?
The battle sequences got unbearably long and the story seems to drag on just a bit too much for my taste. Still worth a play, though.

Why haven't I played Shovel Knight yet?

It's a great game, when you get the chance give it a go.

Shovel Knight was so much fun (course I'm a sucker for romance). COL did drag a little bit but I was so invested by the end, I hardly noticed, personally.

I've often found that retro-style games are a bit too lacking in the story department. They've got to be pretty good on gameplay to make up for it.

I really liked the art style of Child of Light, but for some reason I couldn't get into it at the time. I think I'd better give it another chance.
