Kotaku Awards 2014: Vote For Your Biggest Surprise Of The Year

Time to vote! This time round we're polling you on the biggest surprise of 2014. We'll take your votes today and announce the winners next week.

And the nominations are...


    Ooh. Touch choice between Bayo and n3DS.

      An actual working 3D effect and a useless nerfed nipple stick is surprising? Well, I guess, in a bad way.

    Alien: Isolation

    I was hyped for it but was expecting a let down not a potential GOY and what could possibly spark a resurgence in real stealth/survival type games.

      What was surprising there though? It was exactly the game that everyone was expecting.

    Mordor. The lead-up to it with the controversy over the dodgy Youtube deals and all that... I was expecting a stinker. But it was great!

    Wolfenstein for me. Who would have expected that a new Wolfenstein released in 2014 would be that good?

      I agree.

    Hyrule Warriors, expected it to just be a fun weekend game, but was still playing it daily up until Smash Bros released.

    Impressed Marvel Heroes 2015 gets a mention. For an F2P game that had such a horrid launch, it's now far & away one of the best ARPGs I've played in a long, long time.

    Wolfenstein. Genuinely did not expect to have as much fun as I did, for it to look as gorgeous as it did, or to play as well as it did!

    WOD was waaaaay better than i was expecting after Pandaria.

    Alien: Isolation for me. The new WoW expansion comes close.

    I didn't have high hopes at all after Colonial Marines and Creative Assembly's botched launch of Total War Rome 2, but it actually turned out to be a great game.
