  2. This is my personal, youtube-fodder-game free list of my top 5 indie games of this year. These are games that I enjoyed the most in 2014, but remember, this is my personal opinion. I don't represent anyone but myself in this list. Also, I haven't played that many games this year, so my opinion shouldn't be taken too strongly. All of these games can be found on the Steam Store. Honorable Mentions Lifeless Planet - A solid 3d platformer with nice looking visuals and fun puzzles, but unfortunately very linear. Too bad, since this game would be perfect for exploration. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter - Only played this once at a friend's house, but the gameplay is very fun and the graphics are beautiful. Transistor - Played this a couple times at said friend's house, and is a blast. The art style looks great and the beat-em-up combat is in depth and makes you feel like a badass. 5. Dungeon of the Endless This is a very fun, procedurally generated top down roguelike. The gameplay is great. The combat is classic and fun, but the game is also obviously beautiful. The great art style of detailed pixel graphics with smooth looking animations made it easy for me to play for hours. Definitely pick this one up. 8.7/10 4. Secrets of Raetikon Technically, this early access game was released in 2013, but got its Steam wings in February. I acquired the game with the steam key that eventually came with my humble order about a year ago. The art style is fantastically amazing and so original. The flying mechanics feel great, the puzzles are challenging and although there isn't a combat system, you can ingeniously use the grabbing mechanic and the dangerous environment elements to make the bad birds feel pain. This game is only held back by the occasional location in which your bird gets stuck (not with bugs, SoR is surprisingly bug-free), but that is to be expected in an early access game. Add a level editor with workshop support and you have a must buy. 8.9/10 3. The Talos Principle There really isn't much to be said about this game. It's a puzzle game, not unlike portal, with some cool exploration elements as well. The environments are designed well and it is overall a fun one. If you love puzzle games, this will be a great game to spend your money on. 8.9/10 2. The Deer God This game is just tremendously epic. I previously found Crescent Moon Games hard to take seriously, as they are the makers of the Ravensword games, which are basically Skyrim clones for mobile devices, but this game is just fantastic. You are a hunter who has been reincarnated into a deer because of karma. You start out as a faun, but as you grow, you hump lady deer, get into fierce battles with predatory wildlife and gain magical powers. The mechanics are solid, the platforming is great, the exploration is encouraging, and the art style is beautiful. When you start shooting fire out of your antlers, you know you've won life. 9.3/10 1. Eidolon HOLY FUCK THIS IS THE BEST GAME I HAVE EVER PLAYED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.You are a nomad in post-apocalyptic Western Washington, but thankfully there are no generic zombies to make this game suck. The place has just simply been reclaimed by nature. There are some basic survival mechanics, but they are basic as to not distract you from the real three reasons to buy this game: the visuals, the exploration and the writing. The game is absolutely beautiful. It's probably the best-looking game I've ever played. Ice Water Games took one of the most beautiful regions in the world and somehow made it even more appealing. I wish I lived there. Oh yeah, I do. Suckers! The game is also HUGE. I haven't legitimately measured it, but my estimate puts it a little bigger than GTA V, which was 49 sq. miles. Skyrim was 16. And every single inch of it is screenshot-worthy. I'm not kidding. There are also tons of lost documents to find from about 40-50 intertwining storylines. And I won't give any spoilers, but shit gets really crazy once you piece together the storylines to get the grand plot of what happened to Western Washington. So, in short, the mathematical formula for this game is basically a stripped down version of Rust + Proteus + (Gone Home x 40). Eidolon is mainly a walking simulator game, so it's not for everyone. If you are twelve years old or less, have ADD (actually, on second though an ADD person might like this game) or if you are addicted to fast-paced games, you may not enjoy this game as much. But, Eidolon is a masterpiece of both visual and literacy arts. If you like video games, you owe it to yourself to buy this game at its cheap price of $15. Eidolon is the best game I have ever played in my entire life, and if you don't own it already, your new priority in life is to buy it. 9.8/10 So that's it. I will be making a more in-depth video version of this list soon. TL;DR Honorable Mentions - Lifeless Planet, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Transistor 5. Dungeon of the Endless, 8.7/10 4. Secrets of Raetikon, 8.9/10 3. The Talos Principle, 8.9/10 2. The Deer God, 9.3/10 1. Eidolon, 9.8/10 (best game I have ever played)
  3. So 2013 will probably be the last year a 7th generation game will be awarded GOTY. I think the main competitors are the one listed above and the ones that will win most of these awards, although there are other good games (Ex Fire Emblem: Awakening). In my opinion, 2013 have been a great year for gaming although there have been some exceptions (Colonial Marines, Ride to Hell, etc). So to end with, I would like to know what the AJSA community thinks which game is GOTY in their opinion.
  4. The year is all most over and there have so many great games which one do you think you enjoyed the most .Which game would you pick for game of year. Which game brought you great entertainment. Which game surprised you the most.
  5. Hello, I was just wondering on what your guys opinion was on what your game of the year was. Mine would have to be GTA V
  6. I don't mean mainstream titans like Last of Us or GTA 5. They were great games in their genre, but I mean overall. What game made the year for you?
