Charles's Top 5 Games of 2014

2014 was a great year for gaming, pc and console alike saw many great games released this year. It seemed like there was something for everyone. From racing, fighting, shooting, and RPGs, I think nearly every genre saw at least one big release this year, along with a few surprise hits. Making this list wasn't easy, but after careful consideration here are my top five favorites from this year.

Crystal's Top 5 Games of 2013

This has been another great year for gaming. There were plenty of great games released and now we have next-gen consoles. I've been slacking on my backlog and haven't had the chance to play many of the new games yet, but I look forward to catching up pretty soon. Here is a list of what I think are contenders for Game of the Year, and what I'm prioritizing in my backlog.

Joseph's Top 5 Games of 2013

2013 had its fair share of disappointments, but overall it’s been a great year for games, no matter where you look. While we had two major console launches, and long awaited games like Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us finally released, I once again found myself most impressed and excited by the games I wasn’t expecting. It seemed like interesting titles were coming out of nowhere, to the point where (despite my best efforts) I just couldn’t keep up at all. However, the games I did play offered a great amount of variety, ranging from endlessly replayable strategy games, to short and succinct indie experiences.

2013 is such a weird year to write about my favorite games. For all but one of my Top 5 games, the console in which I played these games is no longer hooked up. That just goes to show that developers have learned to develop for these older consoles and put out some truly remarkable and memorable experiences. We can only hope it doesn’t take developers another seven years to put out the high quality of games that we got this year for the new consoles.
