"At last night's video game BAFTAs, the Best Game of 2014 was announced. And it was Destiny. "If you’re feeling horrified at that revelation, then rest assured – you’re not the only one."
So many more deserving winners...
Like what game? The only other game of 2014 which was actually excellent was Hearthstone which should have won. TLOU remastered can't be considered as it's not a 2014 new release it was a remaster of an older game. Halo MCC also remasters. 2014 was a huge disappointment for gaming. Nearly every game that had hype had fell way below expectations some worse than others. Edit: and to add some further perspective to what I've said. If we look at all the Hyped new ips of 2014 Destiny has a lot more active players than Titanfall, Watch Dogs and Sunset Overdrive put together. So that's saying a lot.
Shadow Of Mordor? Bayonetta 2?
Infamous? dragon age? sunset overdrive? dark souls II? farcry 4?
I thought Mario Kart 8 and Bayonetta 2 were the best multiplayer and singleplayer games of 2014, respectively. Forza Horizon 2 and Shovel Knight were really good though. Infamous, Titanfall, Destiny, Wolfenstein, and almost every other AAA game disappointed me though. Nintendo dominated last year in my house.
I really like shadow of mordor but let's not kid ourselves the game was short and the last boss fight was ridiculously disappointing. I think dragon age is overrated I loved dragon age origins. And I feel dragon age inquisition is just a better dragon age 2 but not a stand out game.
Wolfenstein smashed it.
Dragon Age:Inquisition was amazing.
And the video game industry gets more and more like Hollywood every day
This is disrespectful to every game developer out there who actually deserved to win this. Such BS.
Exactly I can't believe it to be honest I love fps games but I couldn't keep it for more a week I REALLY don't know how that game even competEd.
Thankfully, nobody actually cares about the BAFTAs... Hell, these days there's more prestige in a 'Razzy'.
Idk... I didn't get into Destiny, but I know plenty of people that are still very much hooked. For a new IP that sold extremely well and is still played by thousands 6 months later... That's pretty impressive.
Actually it's still played by millions. I personally do not play it anymore, too repetitive, but millions still do play daily.
Played by millions
It is the greatest FPS of all time. Why wouldn't it win? Oh yeah, the whole breaking the game up and selling it for DLC and firing their writer and song writer and what not, eh?
Yeah, it honestly could have been the best ever... I think bungie should have went independent, if they had more time maybe. All ifs and buts I know, but one can dream. I think alien should have won
What a stinking pile of shite.Best game of 2014 my arse.Biggest waste of time and money 2014 goes to Destiny.
I enjoyed destiny but Mario kart 8 is my goty. It was a masterpiece nearly flawless on every level
Destiny had solid gameplay, and good A.I, but the game lacked a story line. It fell well short on delivering a story, I just feel GOTY should go to a game with the complete package.
Destiny has great gameplay. It's fun but doing things literally just for gear...if it was fully engaged
So what game would that be that isn't a remastered???? Destiny is the best of the new games deal with it!
When a game like like Wolfenstein The New Order also came out the same year... this is kind of sad. Wolfenstein really should have won that award if it was going to an fps game.
Wolfenstein was a blast, but their is no replay value. I think Destiny won not because of the story or any type of feature other then it's spot on mechanics and i t's ADDICTIVENESS. When millions of people keep signing on daily to play the same game over and over and still get pumped for reset day, Bungie did something right.
Sure they did something right. However, is that what it's about ? How many players are playing ? Replay value ? If that's the case, then it can only ever be COD, BF and games like Destiny. Wolfenstein was a such a success. It delivered exactly what it promised, and in every single respect. Destiny ? It promised how much, and delivered on how much of that ? How basic and repetitive was it ? How flat was it's lore and story ? A game like Borderlands has more variety in enemies, guns, skills, and still gets the lore and story part too. Am I right ? So even in that sense, did it really achieve anything that great ?
I feel like Destiny was a victim of gamers over expectations. Yes, the game seemed like it would be much more vast then it is, but some gamers on the forums and even this site seem to have expected things that were never confirmed. I still love destiny and I have been playing since the beta, but I also know how to take a break from it. I have everything I need except the Crux and the Graverobber sparrow, but I am ok with that for now. I have taken a break and played some GTA and Ori and the BLind Forest (my game of 2015 so far).
Nah, this article is more of a joke as is the person/people that wrote it.
Hold on Destiny, imma let you finish but Nintendo had one of the best years for releases in a long time. Beyoneta 2, Mario Kart, Super Smash, and so many more come to mind.
Nintendo fanboys are hilarious
When you assume things, you make an ass out of you and me. Don't make an ass out of me. =P
BAFTA has been a joke for some time now, so it's not surprsing it's even more so now.
I cant judge this game as I never owned it, but I did get bored of the beta pretty quickly to make me not want to dish out $60 for it.
