Best Video Games of 2014

2014 VIDEO GAMES

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition 
    I never that I would love an action RPG the same way I loved Skyrim. Inquisition is an amazing game that provides days of fun. The game has it all. You can play with up to four characters. You can level up and upgrade your party. And you have all the time in the world to explore the vast open-world maps. Dragon Age: Inquisition is worthy of becoming a match to Skyrim.
  • Far Cry 4 
    When I first saw the gameplay trailer for Far Cry 4, I was jumping on my seat. I couldn’t believe that the follow up to one of my favorite games of 2012 was finally coming. Far Cry 4, feels new and similar at the same time. It has all what made Far Cry 3 special, the outposts, hunting animals, the variety of missions, and the assortment of weapons. What’s new in Far Cry 4 is that the setting is now in Kyrat. The game introduces many great and funny characters. Not to mention to great new tools, the Buzzer and the grappling hook. Far Cry 4 will definitely keep you entertained for days, even after you finish the story, you’ll still have a lot of places to discover and go to.
  • Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor 
    One of the best games I’ve played in a while. ‘Shadow of Mordor’ is the game J.R. Tolkein’s franchise deserves. The Nemesis system and the combat stand out in the game.
  • Super Smash Bros.
    I actually bought the Wii U just to play this game! Another game that shows how entertaining couch-coop can be. The game is so good and it features a fantastic ensemble of characters to choose from. This game will definitely keep you entertained, whether you’re playing it on your Wii U or your 3DS.
  • Monument Valley
    Beautiful, simple, and enchanting. I fell in love with the adventure of Ida and Totem.
  • Rayman Legends
    Fun fun fun. Rayman is back again and it’s better than ever. Rayman Legends is one of best platformers I’ve played in years! Playing this game with friends is fun and rewarding.
  • Shovel Knight
    The most amazing NES-like game ever. Insanely addictive and ridiculously fun.
  • TowerFall: Ascension 
    Pure awesomeness. One of the most entertaining games for co-op play. Unlocking every character in this game is really challenging.
  • Transistor
    Another gem from the studio that created ‘Bastion’. The game’s soundtrack is mesmerizing and the graphics are just beautiful.
  • Wolfenstein: The New Order 
    Wolfenstein is back! Kill all the Nazis! The New Order is just amazing and satisfying. The story is captivating and I love the twist on World War II. Not to mention the awesome stealth techniques (I’m a huge stealth fan). I’m glad I played this wonderful game.
  • 80 Days
    A beautiful adventure. 80 Days is not a game as much as it it’s an experience. You can make your own choices in this game, travel to the cities you choose. And depending on your choices, you will travel around the world in 80 days, more or less.
  • Alien: Isolation
    An amazing scary, horror survival game. It’s like reliving the movie all over again. AI is a beautiful work of art that tests the limits of your fear and courage.
  • Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft 
    The best digital card game experience. Hearthstone is wonderful, with its vast collection of cards and the diverse selection of opponents. It will definitely entertain you.
  • Mario Kart 8
    Another wonderful gem by Nintendo. Proving that the Wii U is still a major player in gaming. Mario Kart 8 is super fun. Providing hours of entertainment. Not to mention Luigi’s famous death stare.

Honorable Mentions:

  • InFamous: Second Son 
    My first PS4 title. I actually liked this game more than InFamous 2. Second Son’s graphics are insanely good and the fact that it has more than one power (four to be specific) is great.
  • Velocity 2X
    Intense. Fast paced. Endless fun. Velocity 2X is a great platformer that provides endless levels of fun.
  • Threes!
    An addictive puzzler that inspired a myriad of clones.
  • Wayward Souls
    The latest gem from the makers of ‘Hook Champ’, ‘Mage Gauntlet’, and ‘Punch Quest’.
  • The Sailor’s Dream
    The last entry in Simogo’s experience games suite. Can’t wait for their next one!

Disappointments:

  • Watch Dogs
    It wasn’t that bad, the idea was original, but it didn’t meet my expectations.
  • Assassin’s Creed: Unity 
    Although it introduced new features and mechanics (parkour, co-op, etc.), the story was weak and short, plus the game was full of bugs.
  • Destiny 
    Hyped up and heavily promoted, Bungie’s new game after the Halo series was really disappointing and it didn’t live up to the hype. Repetitive and boring. Not to mention the weak story.

Game I want to play:

  • Mario Kart 8
  • Bayonetta 2
  • Sunset Overdrive
  • Super Time Force Ultra
  • Dark Souls II
