    I had about 17 games played, but only 10 of which I'd want to rate. cant remember all of them but my top five.
    1. ShadowRun Returns Director's Cut : Dragonfall
    I'm a shadowrun fanatic. This might have biased my vote a bit.

    2. This War of Mine
    New slant on the survival genre. You are not a soldier, or fighting zeds. You are a civilian caught in a siege between the rebels and the military.
    You are trying to survive, but at what cost? I took bandages from people at a hospital. I took food from the elderly. Because my group needed it too...

    3. Planetary Annihilation
    I like me some Annihilation series. Yea, Planetary Annihilation could use a couple extra unit types, but over all, I like it. I like sending legions to their demise for 1000 yard gains.

    4. Gods Will Be Watching
    Another game I made some hard decisions in. I tried to do the right thing when I could, but sometimes, there just wasn't any other way out...

    5. Dragon Age: Inquisition
    Probably controversial, but I think it deserves a solid fifth place. In hindsight, there are technical issues, and the main story could have been better, but really, the over all experience
    was rather grand, and I had a lot of fun with it during the ride. Bioware shows its true strength in writing characters.

    Personal comments for 2015.
    I am going to be scared of a game with Bioware level attention to character design, with stakes and hard punching choices of This War of Mine and Gods will be Watching.

    Damn, I had to make a lot of hard choices in most of those games.

    I played so many games in 2014, yet apparently only 6-7 of them came out in 2014.

    So Dark Souls 2 is my 2014 2014 game of the year apparently, i refuse to say that threes is my game of the year that is just too.... telling about my work commuter life that i would rather forget, preferably by playing some dark souls.

    Oh man I totally forgot to vote for Bravely Default.

    It probably would have made it into my top 5.

    Oh well.

    Some of these Vita game names make me fear for humanity

    A game was released this year about running up to people on the street and ripping all their clothes off against their will

    Because, you see, you're looking for vampires and if they're exposed to the sun they'll die

    Seems legit. I don't see you proposing a better strategy for dealing with our nation's out of control Dracula problem.

    Realizing lately that I don't really trust or respect basically any of the moderators here. So, good luck with life, friends! Hit me up on Twitter @DesertLeviathan

    is that better or worse than the witch touching game

  • BedlamBedlam Registered User regular
    I played 5 games off that list, which is more than I thought it was. Played a lot of good games this year but I guess most of them were out a year or two before.

  • JarsJars Registered User regular
    it's about on par with the vita game where you rub weak spots to attack
