Best Video Games of 2014

Here's the list of best video games released in 2014. Please vote!

The Top TenXW


Destiny is a good game, maybe even a great game, but it is certainly not a perfect game. First of all, the story telling is almost non-existent. I may have been a little more lenient on this aspect, had the game not been developed by the masterminds behind Halo and cost a whopping $500 000 000. Honestly, we're given this huge, beautiful world to explore, which seems like it should be rich with history and personality, but it is ultimately left almost completely untouched by the narrative. Secondly, the developers have been shoving DLC down our throats since release day, most of which has actually been found on the disk, locked away. As soon as you open your purchased game, you're confronted with a "Preorder Expansion Pass I" pamphlet. If the game was unfinished at release, developers should have finished it, rather than deciding to lock up the content that was almost done to sell to us later on for an absurdly high price ($20 for a raid and a few missions? Seriously? ). Not only is it ridiculous that we should have to pay extra for this content, but it also alienates all of the gamers that don't want to pay $20-30 money for minimal content, seeing as nine times out of 10, the weekly heroic strike and nightfall mission are only available to gamers that have purchased Crota's End and House of Worlves DLC.

However, despite the emptiness of this game and the greediness of Bungie and Activision, I have still thoroughly enjoyed this game. The mechanics are stellar, the worlds are masterful, and the loot system is addictive.

Not the best game of 2014, certainly not the best game ever, but a solid game nonetheless. I would give it a 7/10. - Matthewn1999

This game is the best I have ever played. The graphics are awesome, the storyline is amazing, and the "always online" feature makes it easier to meet up with friends. If there was a little bit more to explore and do, which is the only flaw in Destiny, this would be in my opinion, not just the best game of 2014, also, the best game of all time.

Amazing game people just say it "sucks" because they just listen to their "friends" that say "Oh Destiny sucks even though it won the award for best game 2014" it has amazing graphics especially for the PlayStation 4 it may suck for the Xbox one because I don't have one but I have a PS4 and I know for a fact the graphics are amazing and it's very fun

I play with my wee all day long!

2South Park: The Stick of Truth

SOUTH PARK STICK OF TRUTH for the win! This game is so amazing! It's funny, the battles are fun and it overall makes you feel like you're in South Park! Also can I mention that some of the games on this list are coming out in 2015!

This is my number one game it feels like you're in the show

You will laugh out loud... you will laugh out loud HARD!

I already played this game 3 times because this game is so good to play.

I am writing this on 16th February, the day the open beta of TitanFall is live on Xbox One. And I can confirm that already, just seven ranks and five or six matches in, that this is the best multiplayer game I have ever played so far in my life. Just from it's reveal I knew this game would be special, and this beta confirms it. It seems Respawn have thought about EVERYTHING when making the multiplayer of this game. They have noted all the problems of past multiplayer games and made sure those problems don't exist here. They've also made something that feels completely different to Call of Duty, despite it still being a first person shooter. Anybody who's reading this who doesn't know if they should get TitanFall or not: get it. This is surely the best game of 2014, I can't see another beating it. Incredible. Stunning. They are the closest words to describing this epicness. This could potentially do for the Xbox One what Call of Duty 4 did for last generation of consoles and for Call of Duty. AWESOME. BEYOND EPIC. The only thing stopping TitanFall from being my very favourite game so far is the lack of a big gripping story. But literally everything else is incredible. It seems Respawn had one thing in mind: to create the ultimate multiplayer game for the Xbox One, and to allow any skill level player to be able to be awesome on this game. Amazing game. - EvilAngel

No matter that I haven't played it from the videos of people it looks awesome. Tomorrow I'm getting a new PC and I'm getting this game FOR SURE!

March 11th? That's too late to get it for the Holidays! Still getting it for my birthday, though. Probably the game
I'll play the most. Plus, I feel kind of bad for the PS4 fans who have to settle with Killzone: Shadowfall. - omgfranz

4Watch Dogs

Watch dogs is one of the best games I have ever played In my long video gaming career

So people complained about the crazy physics but honestly that made the game more fun for me - flamingsoul

Aiden Pearce have a look of a badass guy!

That is a good game

6Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Wii U

This should be number one, because all over the USA this game is voted as best game of the year! - docreywashere

A game in 2014 that was finished? What has the world come to? - PeterG99

#6? This game should be in the top 3! It has my favorite multiplayer experience of all time!

This Should Be Number 1 - masoncarr2244

7Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

When I looked at the previews/trailers I thought it was pretty awesome what am I talking about I mean beast in every way! But in my opinion I can't wait for it to come out cause it would be so much fun to play with my friends and family but so far I enjoy it and love it so very much

How the hell are you people saying it's the best of all time of it's not even out yet? And there's barely been 1 trailer. Call of Duty has been getting very repetitive. The odds of this game being any better than the rest are very very very slim.

What the heck is this piece of sad futuristic crap? Everything involving the future is to do with either alien invasion, war, or hunger games - Harri666

It's better than destiny

8Far Cry 4

How the HELL is this not in the top tens!? Destiny is beating this...

Good one but Far Cry 3 story is better and Jason Brody is more charismatic.

Its even better as 3 in my opinion.

I prefer Far Cry 2, but still, so much wildlife and freedom!

9Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

How is the crew beating this? The crew is an awful game shadow of MORDOR is full of content with the DLC acclaim that of undead nightmare and shivering isles it's not a game to be dismissed

This game looks like it will be so good! I hope it's as good as it's trailers show it to be.

The game is fantastically crafted and improves on what its inspired by such as a better control scheme then assassins creed

10Batman: Arkham Knight

This game by no means is going to suck graphics look immaculate and the gameplay looks pretty great dlc characters like red hood and harley Quinn, scarecrow missions, and the arkham knight a new villain to top it all off must I explain more

This game isn't even out yet.

Can't wait for the best batman game yet..

Wait isn't batman Arkham knight is going to be released in 2015? - Aguythatpeopleignores

12The Sims 4

This game is more advanced the the originals. As of customization, house building, etc. It's a lot more easier at doing things and it's a fabulous game.

My sisters love this game

I want it so bad but I don't have a computer

Great game but HUGE time waster

13Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
14The Crew

This game isn't a good game in fact it's pretty bad it has really awkward physics along with false trailers bad controls terrible missions and a small roster of cars it's more on the top 20 of the biggest duds of 2014

Is driving all around the US. How this game is not fun?

15Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z

This game is the worst dbz game ever o would rate 0.5

16Fifa 15

17Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
18Wolfenstein: The New Order

This game might not be No. 1, but IT IS WAYYY BETTER THAT Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
It's not Call of Duty copycat with repetitive plot in every Call of Duty. It is sure brutal. Bloodspill, gory deaths, Nazis and swastikas, amazing AI...


Wow this game was released 2009 stupids wow

This was made in 2009, everyone knows that! It has to be games MADE in 2014! - docreywashere

2009 is the era of the cave game that is also Minecraft order of stone

I don't like this and it is 2009
