It's that time of year when the community selects it's Game of the Year. This year, I think we should do something a bit different in that we select a Game of the Year and a secondary Honorable Mention.

Drop the games you think we should vote on in the comments and remember this is games that were released in 2014. We will post the final list for voting on December 20th, so act now!

Transistor
Nidhogg
Smash Bros. for 3DS

May not fit the criteria, but still gets my nomination:
TowerFall: Ascension - Ascension is a powered up version of an Ouya game for PC/Mac/Linux/PS4 from 2014, but the Ouya version came out in 2013.

Well I think Terraria is Cheerful Ghost's favorite game, 1.2 came out this year, so perhaps we could nominate that. LOL

Can I nominate more than one?
Hyrule Warriors
Mario Kart 8
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire
Super Smash Bros. (Wii U and 3DS)

If I have to pick just one of those games, then I would like to nominate Hyrule Warriors. Even though it seems I'm the only one here that's played it, I was very impressed with the game. There is still much for me to do in the game as I have not unlocked all the characters, weapons, Gold Skulltulas, nor have I yet fully explored Adventure Mode.

Terraria 1.2 came out last year, September 30.

I might have to give the nod to Wolfenstein: The New Order. It wasn't a perfect game but it was some of the most fun I've had.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 12/06/2014 at 10:00pm

Correct, but we could nominate version 1.2.4. =)

Travis   Admin wrote on 12/07/2014 at 07:16am

Oh wait, how could I forget Shovel Knight? Hmm. Tough call.

Travis   Admin wrote on 12/07/2014 at 07:19am

I also just remembered that Transistor was this year, and Hearthstone is a pretty important release, even if I didn't catch the bug.

If patches or new version of old games counted Terraria, Minecraft or Final Fantasy VII would win every year. Plus, all the other re-releases. Not saying that would be bad, but I am thinking games that are brand new to the year.

They've both been mentioned, but my nominations would be:
Mario Kart 8
Transistor

Yeah, Adam. Transistor. You know what's up.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 12/11/2014 at 05:38am

Games nominated by everyone so far:

* Transistor
* Nidhogg
* Super Smash Bros. (Wii U and 3DS)

* Wolfenstein: The New Order
* Shovel Knight

Anyone have any other ideas, toss em' into the ring before December 20th!

How could I forget Reaper of Souls?

Travis   Admin wrote on 12/11/2014 at 04:46pm

Since we have a lot of good games to choose from, may I suggest split polling?

Best indie title
Best AAA title
Overall GotY

We don't have enough for Best FPS and Best RPG, and so on.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 12/11/2014 at 05:02pm

Sounds good Travis, best Indie and AAA is a good idea.

Travis   Admin wrote on 12/11/2014 at 05:48pm

And of course the overall as well. Or maybe just put the indie and AAA winners up against each other?

We should consider a month-long contest after the new year for best game of all time. People can submit as many games as they want and then have various categories and platforms, and the best overall.

I've listed my games of the year, but I forgot about Reaper of Souls, too, so that would be on my list, too. =)
