2014 Game of the Year Awards - The Winners

gamrReview's Joseph Trotter: "Has it been a good year for games? Gaming culture, obviously not, for reasons everyone is aware of. There are no winners in that clusterfuck except for click-bait websites. Has it been a good year for consoles? The PS4 and Xbox One have somewhat recovered from shaky starts and shakier bugs, while the Wii U launched an avalanche of quality titles that unfortunately only about 10 people will play. Here are all the winners of our Game of the Year Awards 2014 handily arranged in a list format."

Great set of categories and winners.

marloc_x3421d ago

Agreed, some great games here!

Magicite3421d ago

I smell Nintendo bias.
BTW They forgot about shadow of mordor, which actually was 2nd best game of 2014.

I meant more like compared to the VGAs that didn't even have a category for best platformer.

How did they not include one of gamings biggest genres as a category?

The game isn't good though.

DS2 was fine. While there was a bit of recycling assets or ideas for bosses, it was a bigger more open Dark Souls. The Fume knight boss is one of the hardest bosses in the series until Sekiro and Elden Ring were released.

The problem with Dark Souls 2 was the same problem when a different director takes over for a sequel to an outstanding movie. It typically (there are exceptions) doesn’t have the feel and vision of the previous movie.

I wouldn’t say Dark Souls 2 is terrible. Had Dark Souls 1 never been a thing and we got this, I think it would have been praised more. The problem is it didn’t have the Miyazaki touch to it and felt pretty derivative. The soundtrack is a banger though.

And it will happen in the future when he doesn’t touch them as he is planning on.

MrBaskerville109d ago

I like DS 2, might even be my favorite of the 3. But it's a hard sell, there's so many obscure things you need to do to make it an enjoyable experience. So always find it hard to recommend, but it is worth the trouble.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Retro Review – A Nostalgic Leap Short Of Legendary

Dragon Age: Inquisition, developed by BioWare, is the third installment in the cherished Dragon Age series. It represents a major evolution from its predecessor, Dragon Age II, incorporating elements that were well-loved in the original Dragon Age: Origins but also introducing new features that stand on their own. While Inquisition improves upon Dragon Age II in many respects, it falls short of the exceptional standards set by Origins.
