And that’s all folks! We’re taking a short break for the rest of the year, and we’d appreciate it if you can wait until we’ve left before you start popping champagne. But for reals, we want to thank all of you for sticking around this year. You guys are the reason we get up early in the mornings, and that means the world to us. We’ve kicked some major ass this year, and hopefully 2015 will allow us to kick so hard that we wedge our Converse shoes in the bulbous asses of our targets. Until then, we’re going to go get some much needed R and R. So a big thank you from me and the rest of the crew and our intern of the year, the one and only Mattstick. Go and relax everybody, and we’ll be back in 2015!

You’ve seen some of the very best games of the year so far. Now prepare to see the very worst that 2014 had to offer. Lacklustre games can be handled. Lukewarm games can still make for a decently cheap gift. But the worst game of 2014 was most likely proof that God does exist and he hates anyone who received this game as a present.

So many games are sequels or reboots. We love to complain about the lack of originality in games, but it can also be really difficult for a studio to get attention for a new IP. When they do it well, they do it really well, and we had a clear winner this year.

With the new age of console hardware here we all expected a massive leap forward in terms of how many pixels developers could push into our eyes. This new generation isn’t disappointing, bringing a lot of absolutely gorgeous games worlds, new and old, to life. But in an age where broken visual experiences are a scary reality, our winner stood tall, delivering a beautiful, stable and artistic world.

I think I love RPGs most of all. They have always been my favorite genre of gaming, and it's hard to pick a favorite. However, one game blew my mind this year, giving me the best RPG experience of 2014, hands down.

Games don’t always have to come burned on a disc, wrapped in a box and ready to install. Some of the best titles this year were only made available online, just waiting for you to hit the button and gobble them up digitally. These often smaller experiences are packed with a ton of innovation, and this year’s winner definitely added a lot of heart to the mix.

It wasn’t the best year for fighting games to be honest. 2015 thankfully should be different and a lot more jam packed. Mortal Kombat, Tekken, and yes, Street Fighter V (oh calm down already Geoff!), will crowd the genre once more. That doesn’t mean there weren't standout titles this year though. Who er... punched better than the other?

There were some excellent games that deserved our awards this year. Nevertheless, 2014 doesn't quite feel as fantastic as we'd all hoped.
