haha omg I love the intro on number 2, damn that was funny.. Was that the original music from the game too?
Greetings from Denmark
Biggest disappointment of my life: Dragon Age Inquisition.
I uninstalled it, and never could bring myself to re-install that waste of time and money.
I wasted close to 100 hours on that travesty, and it got more and more painful for me as a true, dedicated, die-hard fan of DA’s lore.
They added Jump! Yay!
[i]You MUST mash jump to keep from being stopped in your tracks on dam-there any path that goes UP at all, due to small pebbles.[/i]
Umm……no longer a good idea. Now jump is an annoyance. I’d rather walk right to my next epic battle…of which there are almost none in DAI.
I adore DAO. I despise DAI. Game is GARBAGE! Horrible, horrible game to put at BEST OF 2014. Makes me sick to even see such bullsh*t.
Have you forgotten DAO, Joe?!
These games have nothing in common!
The game has devolved, despite it’s increase in graphics (and extraordinary CPU/GPU demand).
Why did it fail big-time? Have you played the other ones? This game does everything wrong! EVERYTHING! DAI has little in common with the game that made it so popular. Almost nothing. Not a “true sequel” when this is true.
Varric looks like a cousin of…Varric, but NOT actually him, Cassandra doesn’t even look like a “cousin” of her DA2 self, just a “my friend’s Mom” kinda woman with too many “me” issues that they named Cassandra, after the kinda hot woman from DA2 (NO resemblance except the voice).
Leliana and Morrigan, while good to have around for the sake of the game’s lore and history (and the only source of sex appeal), are not available as romance options.
This is quite expected, but the truth is, [i]they are the only desirable characters in DAI![/i] No one else would turn my head, yet many women in DAO and DA2 certainly did. Romance = [b]DON’T[/b] in DAI for a (strait) guy, unless you’re into the “my friend’s Mom” look (and not the M.I.L.F. kind…just “mom”. Period), or you’re into…guys.
This game’s more for girls and gay men. There, someone finally said it. ([i]prepares for ambush, and braces for impact[/i])
Romance is not the only thing that was destroyed. The game on PC has been a ticking time-bomb since it’s release…never know when a cut-scene will crash your game.
As for the fun, where is it? Grinding is not fun. Grinding is work, and nothing else, unless the fighting styles are amazing, which they are not or unless you get awesome loot, which you do not.
What do you gain? A boat-load of notes, that direct you to more notes, that lead you to a locked door, that require you to gather a ton of notes from a different area, that each require you to unlock their doors via more notes from other areas??
Some incredibly fugly armor?
The chance to flirt with a world of people you can’t actually hook up with?
A new enormous area full of…walking to the next note, while fighting increasingly annoying enemies, as your reward for finally “completing” a big-ass area?
#1 of 2014??
[b]Game of the Year[/b]?!
Where is everyone’s dignity! Grab your balls and say “This ain’t Dragon Age!” This game…is TRASH compared to DOA, which admittedly had far worse graphics. I would trade these new [b]unstable[/b] graphics for the same level of epic storyline we got from Origins.
I miss King Cailan. 🙁
And my beloved namesake…the almighty Archdemon!
DAI – 6/10
Admittedly, if it was the first DA game, the score would have been 8/10
Just so you know Joe, there’s a typo in the description. 2014 not 2015.
Lords of Xulima is my #1 didn’t get enough press. by an indie dev. Have nearly 700 hours in it.
1. Shadow of Mordor. – Incrediblly fun Orc slaying simulator. Bought even the season pass.
2. Heroes of Legends: Trails in the Sky 1.- I’m waiting for Part 2. I’ll buy it immediatly.
3. Wolfenstein: The New Order (uncensored). Hell yeah. A real shooter.
4. Borderlands, the pre-sequel – It’s Borderlands. Seasonpass is tooo expensive. Waiting for 15$ tag.
5. Valkyrie Chronicles – Nice tactical JRPG
Skyrims Mods. – I like playing skyrim
Fallout New Vegas Mods. – It’s now playable and errorfree with fanpatches.
I will not buy dragon Age Inquisition now or full price, because the PC Port is lacking a real tactic Overview like in Origins. I really hated Dragon Age 2, with it’s anime style and recycled dungeons, so I have a hard time even considering to buy inquisition for more than 10 $. But I can wait.
1: Endless Legend
2: Shadow of Mordor
3: Wolfenstein: The New Order
4: Dragon Age: Inquisition
5: South Park: The Stick of Truth
And the next five games I played were Skyrim mods.
Shit, wait, Mario Kart 8 Needs to be in there, too!
I played DAI for 15 minutes before i realized this game wasn’t for me. However i played destiny for 800+ hours and am now starting to get over it. The worst game of 2014 gave me more value for my money than the best game of 2014 according to you joe lol
I don’t have a Top 10 so I hope its OK if I do a Top 5.
5. Shadow of Mordor
4. Far Cry 4
3. GTA V
2. Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Plz don’t get mad but I loved Destiny. I know it ain’t perfect but I still enjoyed it a lot.
My Top 10 games of 2014
10: Dust: An Elysian Tail
9: Lord Of the Fallen

Jesus, reading through these whiney comments confirms my thought that DA:I haters are even whiner and nitpickier than the band wagon that hated Skyrim. And of course you know 85 percent of these so called haters are just jumping on the bitchy bandwagon while in real life play the shit out of the game. I swear, the gaming community of today is made up of a bunch of cringe worthy cry baby complainers that nitpick even great games to the point of oblivion. What a miserable bunch you people are. Shut your fuckin whiney bitchy asses up and Just enjoy a video game you fucking elitist douchebag cry babies.
well, i didnt liek the game too much (despite loving the franchise and the lore), I played it through once, with as little grinding as possible, managed to finish it in about 30 hours, and I have no desire to play it again unlike any previous bioware games. I actually spent much more time, like 2x or 3 times more in the extremely barebones multiplayer though, but now i am done with that as well…. soo if not for the MP (which i mostly enjoyed for playing with friends) this would have been an instant throw-away game after a quick finish….
Very nice choices. I hear a lot of people say this was a pretty crappy year for gaming but I thought it wasn’t really that bad. I rarely feel driven to finish every game I play but I actually finished more new titles then last year. I played Stick of Truth and Alien: Isolation straight through to the end, and I’m almost there with Dragon Age Inquisition. I felt more compelled/addicted to keep going with these titles then 2013’s, with the exception of Far Cry Blood Dragon and maybe AC Black Flag. Alien; on top of Last of Us Remastered and The Evil Within made it a great year for horror. Still hurting over Elder Scrolls 0nline though
2014 sucked for gaming tbh. most of the games on that list were good but not amazing. i hoped that an amazing game came out this year that i had not played but oh well it was not too bad.
DAI on the first place? yeah..well…you get money from bw for that?
Despite having 0 evidence of any kind, people start calling calling him a sellout.
Because in Warcraft, you bind your Hurthstone to a hurth.
It’s a shame you don’t own a Wii U. Anyway, here are my picks.
10) Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
9) Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd (PS3/PSVita)
8) Far Cry 4
7) Dragon Age: Inquisition
6) Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
5) Tales of Xillia 2 (PS3)
4) Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (3DS)
3) Bayonetta 2 (Wii U)
2) Dark Souls II
1) Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
I hope you get to review Persona 5 for PS4 in 2015, Joe. You need to see why this is the premiere JRPG series of the last decade.
Being a 3ds user, there wasn’t many titles that where good,we mostly got emulations from previous game gens and 3d remakes. This isn’t to say that they weren’t good remakes or even not nostalgic games. Nonetheless, there where good games out there that I enjoyed. Having said that,this list will comprise mainly of 3ds titles.
1. Pokemon Alpha Sapphire & Omega Ruby
Good nostalgic factor as well as adding more end-game content as opposed to other Pokemon games. Also the story isn’t half bad.
2. Fire Emblem Awakening
I have just started with this series,but this ge had me replay it a lot even before I finished it because I wanted to try out different variations on the characters themselves. So,good replay value.
3. Super Smash Bros.
Both the 3ds and Wii U version.
It’s a smash bros game. What can I say that hasn’t already been said?
4. Animal Crossing
Fun game that has you coming back to it again and agin just to pay off your loans. ….kinda sounds like real life…
5. Five Nights At Freddy’s
This game… This game…. Has me paranoid on how creepy it is. The lore is good,just below the surface of its creepy nature… If you can lol past the animatronic blood dripping face that is…
And in all honesty,who doesn’t like to play a creepy game from time to time, I know Joe does.
As I said,this kid mainly comprised of 3ds games because I’m now barely starting to get on the pc realm,so I’m hoping to finally play some of your reviewed games, expecially your legendary games. But,as you put it, these are my personal favorite games of 2014. I am looking foreword to the majora’s mask remake and monster hunter 4 ultimate that is coming out soon
Wait, don’t get inquisition for PC, it’s poorly optimized for PC.
Joe man, props for Divinity! It was so frustrating listening to the Giant Bomb goty podcasts and have them dismiss it in favour of fecking Destiny in their top 10.
Divinity is so so so good. Especially in coop.
Destiny was their GOTY?!
I wanted to try Divinity, but the price always seemed a bit steep for what it was. I might have to pick it up now, though. Ah… Steam, the Bane of my bank account.
Interestingly, I had picked up Dragon Age: Inquisition solely on your suggestion, Joe. After ME3 and DA2, I had completely lost all faith with Bioware as a developer. I’m glad I did. I had an incredible amount of fun with that game and by the end, it felt like I’d barely scratched the surface. It honestly felt a lot closer to DA:O as far as story and personality went, which I liked. Spot on. That game was epic.
One I liked which failed to make your list was The Evil Within. That game is a complete mindfuck top to bottom.
Steam isn’t that bad, especially when you compare it with EA’s origin (which btw ruined Titanfall for PC gamers).
origin is better than steam since you can return a game when you don’t like it. steam just whipes its arse with your personal rights.
Dude, Steam has discounts upto 98% for us in iceland we pay double for the things what they are worth on Orgins and orgins only has crappy EA games if it’s enough for you just being able to return your game for you to start hating steam then i don’t know what you are thinking 😛 if i sold you a broken piece of shit and just because i allow you to return it is it a good item?
If you ask me, if it wasn’t for Bioware and Dice, EA would be bankrupt by now.
Joe, Could you try Elite: Dangerous please? 🙂 I’m thinking of buying it 🙂
Wheres the crew Joe?
10 – Thief (2014 Reboot) – I have been a fan of the series, yet a little disappointed for some of the elements. However, I loved it so I put it into the 10th spot.
9 – Fable Anniversary – It is good to see the original game with the advanced graphics along with new stuff for the game.
8 – Alien: Isolation – This is a good horror game that takes the bad taste of Aliens: Colonial Marines out of our mouths.
7 – Bayonetta 2 – It is good to see the sexy witch back in action, although I do miss the long hair.
6 – Far Cry 4 – Like Far Cry 3, except with elephants and got drafted into a civil war.
5 – Assassin Creed’s Unity – Nothing like killing people in Paris during the French Revolution.
4 – Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 – Nothing like playing a Castlevania game in a modern day setting.
3 – Halo: The Master Chief Collection – The HD collection along with advance graphics for the old original games with some hints on what Halo 5 is going to be about.
2 – The Evil Within – This is a good survival-horror game and this is what survival-horror is supposed to be since Resident Evil has gotten more action orientated.
1 – Dragon Age: Inquisition – You Know Why!
2014 was a shitty year for consoles.
Seems like only for the Xbox one. If I had to do it over again I would get the play station. Better game selection.
It was yet another banner year for current gen. I’m still not at all impressed with the ps4 and xbone. Almost everything worth a shit on them was also put out in the current gen, for cheaper, less online costs and slightly worse graphics. Sound is the same. Idunno… I’m finding next gen shit really redundant with LESS functionality and more cost (where s my DLNA, Sony?)
Here’s my top 10 Best
10-COD Advanced Warfare
8-Halo The MCC
6-Warframe (Xbox ONE)
4-South Park TSOT
3-Far Cry 4
2-Dragon Age Inquisition
1-Metro 2033/Metro Last Light Redux
I think this was a good year for RPG/Survival genres.
Cant wait for MGSV GZ, and Halo 5 next year!
AJSA-Victory or Death!
Cod advanced warfare was the lamest. Maybe adding jet packs to the walking dead survival skills would have saved it to.
I agree metro 2033was awesome but a little to linear.
ok! Joe! now in my first comment, i mentioned KH3! now i know Kingdom Hearts isn’t the kind of game you would review, but i’d really like to see your analytically oriented review style used to discuss my #2 favorite game franchise!!!
but because it’s not the kind of game you review/play, i’m afraid you might bash on it! and while it can be cheesy, and a bit complicated, it’s still a Widely Celebrated franchise, with Awesome gameplay, and an Unbelievable storyline!
so i just wanna say, that if you do review KH3 when it comes out, be fair! be sure to go into Great detail on the parts you did like! and be honest with how you felt Beating the Shit out of Disney villains, Especially if there’s one you Personally don’t like!
if you don’t like the game, but you’re fair to it, then i won’t have to choose between one of my favorite franchises, and one of my favorite reviewers!
(honestly, i’m also looking out for you too! there are defiantly KH fans that would come up with The Most horrific death threats, if you bash on the games, Especially the long anticipated KH3! so again, i’m looking out for ya! keep up the Awesome work!)
FINALLY someone else here…. A KH FAN! I also support the idea of reviewing at least a game in the franchise!
can’t wait to Finally kick Xehanort’s Ass for Good this time! and with the regular updates we’re gonna get during 2015, we might be lucky enough for a 2016 release!
some of the best games this year, for me, were: Pokemon: Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, The Last of Us: Re-Mastered, and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5!!!
games i’m looking forward to in 2015: The Order: 1886, Zelda WiiU, Majora’s Mask 3D, and the Biggest of all!… Xenoblade X!!!!!
News! that i’m looking forward to in 2015: … The Regular/Ongoing Progress Updates For KINGDOM HEARTS 3!!!!!
Eh… I don’t necessarily disagree with Dragon Age: Inquisition being on the list, but #1?
I was talking with some friends and, after beating the game, I can’t decide on if it’s ending is better or worse than Mass Effect 3. It manages to pull off the whole “nothing you chose mattered” in a way without coming off as blatantly ignoring because… well… none of it ever comes into play (especially the post credit scene). I don’t want to really spoil much of it for those who haven’t beaten it, but the entire final mission itself felt extremely flat.
And the dragons? I may of been playing on normal mode, sure, but dragons who I matched levels with shouldn’t of been able to be killed before getting off even one attack. Nor should the rewards they drop not be worth it either.
Add in multiplayer that’s functional but terribly designed (Mass Effect 3’s Multiplayer this definitely isn’t), and while its a good game I wouldn’t toss it into a number one spot.
Personally, I’d of likely shifted the spots around a little… LISA is a new game but its a powerful nostalgia-trip for fans of Earthbound in terms of style, but manages to be something all it’s own. Hyrule Warriors is shameless fun (f^&* amiibo locked content though). Then you have a new Guilty Gear game (dat 3D modeling, yo).
And on handhelds? Thearrhythm: Curtain Call may just be an extension of slightly older title, but for fans of Final Fantasy’s music it’s hard not to ignore… Specially when they start tossing in Chrono Trigger music in (Frog’s Theme, for the love of god… FROG’S THEME PLEASE!). And Persona Q? Until Persona 5 comes out, it’s going to be something to help fill that itch, when I’m not scratching it with another playthrough of 3, or 3 FES… or 4 Golden… Or the Persona re-release, or the two parts of Persona 2… Or Nocturne…
I may have a love of the Shin Megami Games I think…
And just thought I’d add in, but screw the War Table…
There’s nothing that drains the personality out of a quest like clicking a thing, being told to come back in 12 hours, and informing you that the quest is done and stuff happened. The game relies far too heavily on that, especially for companion side-quests, that it robs a bit of the feeling from them for me. I mean, yay… I kinda helped Sera with a party, except I didn’t but some people did something somehow so great? Certain things fit with it, like choosing sides or delegating such stuff, but some of it just felt like being there for the sake of being there and not having to actually animate/write/code anything more for it than a snippet.
Oh, and approval. They removed the “meters” for it, but it feels like in order to justify it they make the companions easily 10x more easier to please.
The War Table missions are the DA version of the new WoW expansion’s garrison missions.
Even though, there wont be DA mmo, why would they go through all the trouble with the Dragon Age Keep.
There’s a difference however between “randomly generated missions for rewards” and “missions meant for moving the story forward”. I know about WoW’s Garrisons, and personally don’t care much about it.
The War Table however just feels like a cop out. I’d of loved to actually DO those missions with Sera when you’re helping the Red Jennies. I’d of LOVED to go in and potentially aid Zevran take out someone.
And you’re honestly asking why they went through the trouble with the Dragon Age Keep? As if to simplify what all was carried on into Dragon Age Inquisition (and later games) isn’t enough? To give a way for people to carry over things or do something without spending dozens of hours replaying one great game and one mildly decent (if really iffy) game?
And please, don’t link me to some article trying to argue the whole “single player MMO” point. I don’t get that feeling at all. And if he wants to seriously claim that Star Wars: The Old Republic is one of the most successful MMOs out doesn’t help me take his point any better.
The War Table has a complexity of a NES game.
Good job Amplitude, that’s the only intelligent thing you’ve added to this so far. I never said anything to its complexity (nor implied it was any more complex than a nail clipper), but at least you managed to add something, even if it was just another way of saying what I was saying. And if you’re still unsure of what I was saying, I’ll give you the short of it.
“Errr, War Table pointless. It do nothing for stuff.”
You completely forgot abotu Assassasins Creed Rogue, Joe. That is, in my opinion, the best Assassin’s Creed game since AC 2 (and the best protagonist, ever, even better than Ezio, altough only slightly). Haven’t played AC Untiy yet, but a bugfest like that should not make it into any kind of Top 10 List anyway.
Don’t know about you guys but I think there should of been a console top 10 and a PC top ten. Some people will not buy a console or build a gaming PC so it kind of defeats the purpose of a top ten list of games people will never be able or won’t to buy because of their platform of choice.
No.You want Wii’s and nintendo 3d’s to have there own list to?
Not everything is perfect.Some people have to hear only 9 out of 10 games that they can get that are told to be great by joe
That’s correct. Some games are only crappy console ports, not fitting for PC usage..
As example Far Cry4. very bad engine port with lags, Noone wants to play that, other than using a highend pc, and even there you get only 60 fps. Even mouse controlls were botched in the first version. And it does not officially start on dual core PC, even if you are been able to play it with medium settings with 40 fps, after using the inioficial dualcore injector programm.
A game with such flaws cannot be on a top 10 game list for PC, even if it’s great on a console.
Can anyone why do people like mario?
I’m not that all of the mario games are terrible, i just don’t see what do people like about them
No one knows why
My top ten
1. Bayonetta 2
2. Borderlands pre sequal
3. Super smash brows brawl for wii u
4. Persona q shadows of the labryith
5. Dc universe online
6. Snipers elite
7. Wonderfull 102
9. Wolf amoung us
10. Far cry 4
Good work as always Joe. Thanks for the list; I’ll be getting Endless Legend and The Banner right now. Dragon Age after that. I went looking for Hearthstone but….can’t seem to find a PC version T.T Already got South Park and the Honey Badger of Death…although Ajay was a bit too “Yes Sah” for my liking ..and I would have liked a bit more Pagan Min than we got. Divinity: Original Sin….my game bugged out 3/4 through; the imp guy refused to open the last 2 portals. So I didn’t get to finish the game.
Not sure how I feel about Shadow of Mordor yet…maybe I’ll get it after watching the Angry Review.
Don’t buy DA:I for PC or last gen consoles, it’s poorly optimized for both.
Yeah, Joe mentioned it in the review. Guess I’ll wait until they do something about it before getting it
i only have a gtx 770 and i can play it on maxed sitings with 45 FPS and 65 in closed doors.
My LAPTOP doesnt even meet the minimum requirements but it runs stable 30+ fps on minimum settings. Miracles happen. But the ammount of people crying on forum indicates im just lucky.
Is it a problem with the specs? When they said poorly optimized I thought it meant….well, buggy.
Hearthstone is available for PC. http://us.battle.net/hearthstone/en/. It’s a free download, not a for sale product. That might have been why you can’t find it.
Thank you so much. Huhohohuuhohohuhahahaha one more game on my list
Free products but you know when a guy has 3 legendaries on the table he has spent alot of cash to be able to win like that it pissed me off losing my rank on someone who spent 400-500$ on 350+ decks..
BORDERLANDS PRE-SEQUEL!!!!! I know it wouldn’t make number 1 but I would have included it in my list. I absolutely loved that game. despite its repetitive nature ripped from borderlands 2.
Am i the only one disappointed with modern games?
I really did like alien isolation though
For games excluded from your list, I liked Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition (PC) and Smash Bros for Wii U (Wii U).
Wow, yet another DA:I as best of 2014. I just can’t fathom why people love it that much, but I played the crap out of Borderlands TPSQ with my friends, and that game got some really bad rep, so hooray for opinions I guess. 🙂
For me, DA:I got old really fast and the best moment of the game was about 1/4 ways in when you get to Act II, then it went back to being a boring single player MMO. Not to mention the only non-combat focused main quest turned out to be a goddamn puzzle hunt with a timer. 🙁
I’m really sick of people calling this “a single player MMO”. And TBH there’s been quite bit hate on this game, hell even skyrim haters were less nitpicky than Inquisition haters.
Most of content is in the unlockable zones the most of the content there is standard mmo grind. So if you “completed” all the zones and you have mmo experience you will say the majority of the game was like a single player mmo. If you complete everything but are not familiar with mmo-s then most likely you will say it was simply boring. Thats why i commented at the DAI review that i felt like playing Guild Wars 2 with better story. Ive seen in a lot of reviews that “game is so awesome, i didnt even see the half of the content…”. Oh, you didnt see, sure. You are just assuming there is so much more diversity in stuff to do then. You would have different opinion if you saw the whole grindfest.
Trick to feel like it was fking epic awesomenes when you finish the game is not to collect more power than you need to launch the next main mission. That way its fun, and focus will be on what bioware always does right: companions and main story which are top quality here in my opinion.
(Come on, who among you felt a 9/10 game while you were out in the 8. zone collecting all the shards and bottles and closing those rifts again? (especially if you played it with mouse and keyboard)
You should know that i’m a completionist (i like to 100% everything) so i played all the side quests and found all of the collectible and i will admit that it got grindy at the 55% mark.
There are respawning enemies, even if you take out their “bases” to stop some of them from reappearing, you have the same few things on most of the maps; shards, connecting dots, rifts, Hell, even the dragons aren’t that different.
The most interesting maps were the three with the unlockable garrisons, but even those couldn’t mix thing sup that much. You just run a gauntlet of mooks to get to the end.
Even if the companions are great, 70% of the time you are dealing with the actual gameplay, which was pretty dull on the PC.
One of your complaints is respawning enemies?
When happens in dark Souls and Skyrim no one cares, but when Inquisition does it, people complain.
Totally disagree on #1. Dragon Age Inquisition is boring, repetitive and is NOT a Dragon Age game! It’s more like a bad rip-off of Skyrim with scenes and music resembling the LOTR movies. Characters are blah and boring and you do not care about them like you did in Origins. Tactical camera is a joke and the fighting, although exciting at times, is basically hack and slash. Graphics on the PS3 are horrible and there are a lot of in-game glitches. Really a major disappointment.
This was a bad year for games and big disappointments. Divinity Original Sin got old quick (the dialog is the worst thing about it – they were trying to be cute and funny but failed miserably – half the time I didn’t even read it) and Far Cry 4 (hard to believe but Ajay is 10 times more boring than Jason Brody) is pretty much boring as well although it was fun riding elephants. Vehicles and animal selections are sparse and again the money and loot are way more than you are capable of crafting wallets and bags for. Haven’t finished any of these three games as I lost interest.
So Inquisition is a Skyrim clone cuz it opened up the areas?
Why don’t we call Deus Ex a Mass effect clone cuz it has a similar conversation system while were at it?
Agreed on Ajay. Not so much boring as…totally lifeless? And the problem is that he was MADE to be that way; creators said they wanted to let us put ourselves in Ajay’s shoes as much as possible, so they made a silent hero….but somehow he turned out robot-like instead.
There’s truth here, buried in cynnicism and burnout.
I would have mentioned tac team as a pro for Inquisition :D. Its just throwing gasoline on the fire right now.
I didnt know much about divinity, never really cared, but watched some reviews about it after this and i think im going to buy it, thanks for the info!
I would *not* have…
dont really have exactly 10 games from this year but these are the games i enjoyed. and all of them are on pc only.
8. the cat lady
a mix between the movies, seven and black swan seen through the sin city colour filter. sick, twisted, solid puzzles and thrilling 2D side scroller.
its fun to punch around with your titan.
6. viliant hearts
finally the WW I is used and done right. with some hidden facts to learn about that time was interesting and playing different characters, each with their own ability made this game a joy to play. also a very sad ending.
5. never alone (kisima ingitchuna)
and who said you dont learn anything from games? a beautiful looking game with small documentaries about the culture of the natives of alaska.
4. alien isolation
finally a alien game were i could fangirlscream (even when im a man) out for the little details used in it. and its creepy.
3. south park
just had a huge smile on my face. just classic south park.
2. talos principles
a great puzzle game from the developers of serious sam. amazing level design, visual, story and soundtrack.
1. child of light
just everything of this game is beautiful. the art design, the story, gameplay and most of all; the beautiful soundtrack.
Joe, the description says top 10 best games of 2015.
You know I normally I agree with Joe 95% of the time but this list was way off, while I know liking/loving a game is subjective this list to me is off. My list won’t be listed because that just makes for a Angry (pun intended) thread like arguing politics and/or religion.
