We've already done our Kotaku Awards for 2014, but I thought it might be fun to spend some time making our own personal top 10 lists. I feel as though declaring an overall winner makes us neglect games that are in the conversation, but might not be the game of the year. So here is my own personal top 10. Would love to read yours.
1. Alien: Isolation 2. Mario Kart 8 3. PT 4. Dark Souls II 5. Framed 6. Destiny 7. Nidhogg 8. Desert Golfing 9. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze 10. Crossy Road
This was trickier than I thought. At first I legitimately thought I'd find it difficult to get to 10. Then I started to remember different games, which sent my brain firing in different directions.
A number of games were close but not quite. Games like Super Smash Bros. on 3DS, games like OlliOlli, the afore-mentioned Trials Fusion.
Maybe 2014 wasn't such a terrible year for games after all. What's your top 10?
