I'm interested in knowing everyone's Top 5 games of 2014, as well as what games you're most looking forward to in 2015!
Here are mine as well as the platform I played it on:
1) Dark Souls 2 (360/PC) - Just too amazing to not be on here, wasn't as good as 1, but still better than everything else to hit this year.
2) Bayonetta 2 (Wii U) - The ultimate example of why gameplay is the most important thing in a game.
3) Destiny (PS4) - Similar to Bayo 2, even if some consider it to be light on content (I don't), the gameplay is pure bliss.
4) Danganronpa 1+2 (PS Vita) - Never have I been so invested in such a great story. It's over the top and Japanese, just the way I like it! Like a twisted mashup of Phoenix Wright and Battle Royale, sort of...
5) Wolfenstein: The New Order (PC) - Hopefully this leads to a new standard of shooter gameplay.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth 1 (PS Vita) - When this game was first announced in Japan, it was what initially drove me to buy a Vita. It did not disappoint except for a few specific things.
Infamous Second Son (PS4) - Easily the best in the series. A bit on the short side, but amazing nonetheless.
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes - Amazing, simply amazing. Short as all hell, but a great peek into how The Phantom Pain will play.
Mario Kart 8 - I'd have to say now probably my favorite in the series, if not a close second to 64.
The Last of Us Remastered: 60 fps really does make all the difference (as does the far superior DS4). I liked it last year, I LOVE it this year.
Biggest Disappointments (thanks to
for the idea for this):
1) The Evil Within - I wasn't even that hyped about it, but it was one of the few horror games I just couldn't play much of, for the wrong reasons.
2) The Witch and the Hundred Knight - I WAS hyped for this game, and while it's good, there's many noticeable flaws that got in the way of me finishing this game.
Tops for 2015 (in no particular order):
1) Mighty Number Nine (backed this, excited for it!)
2) Neptunia Rebirth 2 and Victory 2 (A Vita remake of the 2nd game in the series as well as the first true mainline sequel since Victory)
3) Danganronpa:Another Episode (More Danganronpa! Color me excited!)
4) Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain
5) Mortal Kombat X (hopefully as good as 9)
6) Bloodborne (aka, the game that made me buy a PS4)
7) Persona 5
8) Zelda Wii U
9) Star Fox U (the first Star Fox game the original team has worked on since 64? LOOOONG overdue!)
10) The Witcher 3
11) Batman: Arkham Knight
12) Ampllitude (Backed this as well, because I loved it back on PS2)
13) Majora's Mask 3D (been waiting for this one for too long)
My wallet is going to depressed next year like Chizuru on that beach!
