Dan gives us a rundown of his his top 10 favorite games of 2014 starting with a Kamehameha blast from his childhood.
The only Vita game in my top 10 (though I do spend a lot of time on Don’t Starve: GE). This game sucked me back into the world of Dragonball.
Destiny’s Beta grabbed me and a few mates, but it dwindled out during the full version. Best played with friends; its MMO qualities (mostly grinding) lost us in the end.
My first PS4 platinum grabbed me once I decided to buy it. Banksy’s style in Delsin Rowe’s graffiti, attitude and split storylines as well as awesome graphics and gameplay, hooked me back into the Infamous world.
I loved Don’t Starve for its artwork, charm and sadistic like addiction to battling against the wildlife and elements, despite the amount of times you perish. ROG added the extra seasons making it even harder.
I was a little disappointed in FC4. FC3’s Vaas Montenegro was an awesome villain who didn’t just call you up in a Handsome Jack kinda way to see how many quips he could fail at delivering anywhere as well as the aforementioned. Despite that, if it’s not broke don’t fix it and I still love to play it, even if a Far Cry 3 HD would’ve sufficed.
Even though I had a go at Destiny’s grinding MMO characteristic previously, I can happily grind at Diablo 3 without losing interest, probably because of the bigger range of characters!
All the ingredients I love: Tolkein, a levelling system, stealth, huge epic battles versus multiple opponents and a grudge system that made you want to slay any Ulruk that got a death blow on you.
Re-releasing GTA5 on the next platform without just HDing it, made it even more fun and challenging. I could go on about 1st person and higher multiplayer allowance but I’d be preaching to the choir.
With a “choose your own style” of gameplay and medieval theme that gradually introduces a huge lore and history that goes above and beyond the normal game experience (apart from maybe Elder Scrolls) this game still has me hooked. This should be my third platinum, soon!
So that’s Dan’s list of the games he got all jazzed about in 2014. Which of them did you play? Let us know or just have your say in the comments below!
