As you may already be aware we're kicking off our awards at Kotaku Australia and, as always, we're looking for nominations. Today we're looking at the biggest surprises of 2014.
This is a fairly open category -- and probably a little less serious -- I'm just looking for things that surprised you in gaming this year. It can be a video game, a convention, an event, breaking news, a console, anything. Feel free to get creative.
Here are a couple of my own nominations to get things started.
Alien: Isolation PAX Australia Crossy Road Overwatch
Now let's hear your nominations. Drop them in the comments below!
