I've had this argument with a couple of people. I believe that 2014, on the whole, was a pretty bad year for video games, particularly if you're looking at large production games on consoles or PC.
On mobile platforms? I guess you could make the argument that 2014 was pretty decent. But in terms of the games we typically discuss and play on Kotaku, I'd argue it's been fairly weak.
I can't even think of any indie games that really, truly blew me away either. And handheld games? It feels like they've been missing in action.
Am I wrong? I'd love to hear arguments both for and against.
