Influential news publication TIME has jumped the gun a little early and published their favourite games of 2014. As you would expect there’s a couple of Nintendo related titles on the list with the sublime Mario Kart 8 placed at number five and Shovel Knight at number eight. Here’s their top ten games of 2014.
10. Velocity 2X
9. Sunset Overdrive
8. Shovel Knight
7. Monument Valley
6. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
5. Mario Kart 8
3. Dark Souls II
2. Alien: Isolation
1. 80 Days
What the heck is 80 days?
Agreed, I’ve never heard of this game…
Most be some casual phone game.
I hope not…
Sorry if you haven’t looked it up its a game on iphone,
no smash? …
Its an iOS game NC, its more of an interactive story than a game, but it has a great story behind it, 1800’s steam punk background.
At least it isn’t a game…
It’s far from casual
alien and velocity 2x at the top of your list for games then you know this is some bs list lol
And what’s wrong with those games exactly?
Well velocity 2x is a free game I got on psn and a mediocre one too
I played through 10 lvls in like 10 mins and it just wasn’t fun so to think that is a top game maybe for the causal gamer and Alien too compared to all the games this year isnt as great as the others. I actually haven’t heard anything special or great about alien at all so very surprising.
Velocity was meant to be speedy…
I was wondering the same thing. 80 Days?
No Sony or Microsoft game? Wierd. End of sarcasm.
Also known as “The Infamous ripoff”
Also made by the same team who made infamous.
Insomniac made sunset overdrive, while sucker punch made the infamous series. So no that isn’t correct.
Don’t bother, some people will always be in delusion…
Got confuzed between the both. So it happens. Ill buy u an ice cream so u can work on your jawjacking alley way back of the car routine.
And they can’t be anymore original than that to avoid the “ripoff” department much like Titanfall did?
TIME does have some taste I’ll give them that, no generic garbage anywhere on that list…
I know right. They earned some respect from me. No des no cod no tit fall, great list.
Where the heck is The Last Of Us Remastered?!
On last year list you silly rabbit.
Best film list of 2013
My 2014 list:
4)mario kart 8
3)Little big planet 3
2)Smash bros wii u
2015 will be:
I’m sure Zelda U is gonna be better than that ;)
For the information we got its as high as it can get.
Excuse me but why Zelda Wii U is on the bottom? lol
Because of the little information Aonuma shared,a 1 min trailer showing nothing….still i know it will be good :D.So man wanna play smash i got it yesterday and had some matches(lost all the times i m with 0 wins lol) but i m getting used to competive smash more.Also the guy i was playing with was a counter+grab maniac.
Thats what they all say because they failed to recognize what a fucking “teaser” trailer is. lol Look at Uncharted 4. They didnt show shit either and for all we know, that scene of Drake awaking up on a shore at night could be a pre-rendered cutscene and not real time like the Zelda Wii U reveal.
I’m so fucking hyped for Witcher 3
Yeah me too :D
This list couldn’t be any more perfect. Wow.
Heartstone need to come to tablets, I never have the time to play it on PC…
I m playing it on the pc,i think they were making an ipad version if i m not mistaken.
The game is on iPad, I’ve heard, but I have a normal Android tablet. So, doesn’t really help…
I don’t really play on PC much anymore, only for multiplayer games with friends, like Payday etc.
It is on ipad
I know, but I got an Android powered tablet, so…
There’s a LBP3??? Screw it, I’m hiking down to my Sonyan friends house.
This list be premature to say the least seeing as how 2014 aint even over yet.
True. But seeing the games on this list makes me wonder they already know whats coming out around December and is not interested.
What else hasn’t come out yet?
Not a single Zelda game? If they didn’t want to be taken seriously, they could have just said so…
on, nevermind me and my silly reading skills.
still… No pokemon ORAS?
I think they did not took remakes to consideration.
Oh but they would still put the BS “remastered” The Last of Us and Tomb Raider from 2013 on top of the list right…RIGHT? lol
DKC: Tropical Freeze is my game of the year c: after that is Bayo 2.
Where is Bayonetta 2 and Smash Bros? And seriously, Alien? HAHAHA! XD
Isolation is actually light years better than that colossal fuck up Colonial Marines.
This list is pretty inacurate to my opinion, but that is to be expected.
80 days was great, but not really that memorable imo. My list would be
9. Wasteland 2
8. Bioshock Infinite Burial At Sea ep. 2
7. Velocity 2X
6. Dark Souls II
5. Shadow of Mordor
4. Smash Wii U
3. Far Cry 4
2. Bayonetta 2
1. Dragon Age Inquisition
I actually believe dragon age can win goty.
Yep, amazing game. Many hours were spent on it :D
And when Bayonetta 2 wins, I’m partying all night with that kick ass “Wii U Exclusive” beast of a game. :3
Lmao when it loses i can already feel your butthurt. It’s gonna be hilarious to see your rants on “mainstream media” and “Nintendo haters”
I’m gonna say this in advance just in case: Typical. :/
:333 what the actual fuck is that. Porky backside??
What in the un-actual fuck are you? A house fly eager to piss off someone? lol
Alien: Isolation is fucking ass.
WTF is 80 Days? Never heard of it but MK8 actually beat Shadow of Mordor? lol
Ignorance is a blissful thing…
Its not ignorance if there’s hardly any gossip about it fool. lol
You two should get a room, breed, and then create your hybrid child that would eclipse the dedication you two have my lightyears…
-Codename: Shuhei Stranga-
“Spreading the word”? And here you thought you’re actually “smart” to catch on. lol
Wow, that is a… really really shitty list.
Why because its not all Nintendo? Keep playing your kid friendly games in that hole of yours for the rest of your life.
I am completely serious when I say this. Scum like you need to learn your place on the food chain of human existence. You don’t deserve to reply to my comment. The only thing a worthless sack of shit like you deserves is a slow and agonizing death, followed by an eternity in hell. The fact that you actually think you’re worthy of life is laughable. You were a mistake, and are currently nothing more than a joke. Your life carries no meaning and you will never amount to anything. Get the fuck off this website and go back to using your tears as lube to jack yourself off as you die alone in your parents basement. The only thing you could ever tell me that I could possibly care about is your name, so that when you die I can find your grave and shit on it. Go fuck yourself, you useless, meaningless, ignorant, sack of dogshit. Fuck yourself and rot in the deepest darkest corners of hell. I am tired of dumb fucktards like yourself thinking you’re high and mighty and that your opinion accounts for anything just because you’re on the internet. I could list off an never ending amount of reasons as to why you are worthless and I am better than you in every single conceivable way, but I won’t waste my time on a little shit stain like you. So, I’ll just say this again. Fuck you. Fuck. You. Rot in hell.
you deserve to kill yourself you miserable psychopath scum. Wonder why you have no friends.
Go fuck yourself you miserable failed abortion.
COD should be on top! But.. Assassin’s Creed is sooo good too! Why aren’t those games in the list???!!! I can’t trust this! There’s not Watch Dogs either!
i see dark souls 2 and I think nice one but then i learn that the top spot is an i phone game…. sigh. (I bet there are some decent ones out there and I am about to look up this 80 days game after this comment )
not for me but looks very non casual from a quick look at it so I have no problem with it.
Clearly Microsoft paid to get a mention of one of their games on their. infamouse: rip off overdrive is ok I guess but game of the year ? No Bayonetta ? An iPhone game #1 ? Whack list but what you expect from casual and mainstream gaming ?
SSO isn’t an inFamous ripoff idiot. And if you didn’t know by now there are actually games on the iPhone that aren’t casual?? Seems like you’re just too salty over Bayo not being top.
Don’t bother bruh. I love nintendo as much as the next guy, but the folks on here are just bitter irrational fanboys who act just as bad as xbox and ps fans on ign. they fail to realize that this is just others opinion..nothing to be taken seriously about.
It’s articsls like this that screw with people who are out of the know.. They think this is definitive therefore going out and buying stuff on this list… Missing out on other great (better) games. Have no problem with some of these choices but there are just better games than some of these. Matter of opinion I guess
No Bayonetta 2 or Smash Bros.? Microsoft must have paid TIME to put as less Wii U exclusives as much as possible.
CUBIVORE should be on these lists…
All trash games beside MK8. People just accept this crap cause they are so easy to beat. And because most peoe suck at games they beat one easy crap game and pretend it’s good. Only cause they have not the skill to beat an actual difficult and engaging game
And how many of these games have you even played? I’m guessing zero
Ehh shovel knight was ok. But come on compared to Smash?! Time is obviously run by retards
It’s called an “opinion”
But it’s true though :p
I miss just 1!!!!!! GAME it begins with a S and it has more hype than shovel knight! (That rimes!)
Yet another lousy top 10 list.
Make one yourself then
I doubt there was even 10 games I cared anything about this year. Maybe not even 5.
1 Smash Wii U for sure
Mario Kart 8 is definitely one of my favorite games. It’s a LOT better than 7 imo. I know people complain about the roster, but it’s great to me. I like most of the baby characters and the new characters and I just love how beautiful each course looks. My only issue is that coin. It shouldn’t be an item, really. It pops up way too much. Other than that though, it’s amazing. :)
Good luck ^&*
The absence of Bayonetta 2 in this list simply destroys the credibility of anyone who made it….
10. Super Smash Bros for 3DS
09. Mario Kart 8
08. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
07. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (before Ubishit pissed me off with the last fucking straw known as Watch Dogshit!)
06. Pokemon X
05. Pokemon Y
03. Pokemon Omega Ruby
02. Bayonetta 2
01. Hyrule Warriors
This is my list & I’m sticking to it!
