Top 100 Games of 2014

Happy New Year everyone! See the biggest video games of the year in the Top 100 Games of 2014 overview below. We love making this yearly list. Mainly because 2014 is looking to be yet another awesome year for us gamers! 😀

Anticipation without means, is half the fun or so it seems. While you are now looking forward to a great many games, at the end of 2014 we believe the listed 100 titles are the games you will fondly remember playing. Both logical and indeterminable factors taken into account are: Hype, developer potential, nostalgia, recent critical successes, a series’ past sales and average review scores, all counted towards this unbiased Top 100 of big games you can expect to see in 2014.

Please comment to let us know: What are your favorite games of 2014?

Table of Contents

No doubt one of your favorite games is missing*. We want to emphasize this is not our personal opinion, we’ve had to cut about 100+ games from the original overview in editing the past 24 hours. But we’re really happy with how the Top 100 turned out and hope to play all of them this year (all of us at VGB are multi-systems owners). If your favorites aren’t high enough in the list we look forward to seeing what your Top 5 looks like in the comments. Release date are listed behind each game’s systems overview. If you’re looking for more info from a certain game, click play on its preview video. With that said…

* The long disclaimer about why certain games are/aren’t included:
The following games don’t have a clear launch window yet, are on hold, or aren’t expected to arrive until 2015: Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy XV, Star Wars Battlefront 3, Mirror’s Edge 2, The Last Guardian, Half-Life 3, Beyond Good & Evil 2, DOOM 4, Persona 5, Fable Legends, Tekken X Street Fighter, Sleeping Dogs 2: Triad Wars, Prey 2, Duke Nukem Begins, Cyberpunk 2077, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, The Legend of Zelda HD, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Dragon Quest X, Mass Effect 4, StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, Alien: Isolation, Guillermo Del Toro’s InSane, Monster Hunter 4, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6: Patriots, next Prince of Persia game, Fallout 4, Star Citizen, No Man’s Sky, Mistborn: Birthright, Yakuza 5, God Eater 2, Mighty No. 9, and Rockstar’s Agent.

Then there’s all the awesome downloadable content releases that we didn’t know where to place, since 9 out of 10 aren’t named yet. Remakes like HD Collections & Ports were excluded, since the focus here is on new releases. We wished to included more iPhone/iPad/handheld titles and more games from Indie developers, but they are often not announced until nearly complete. E3 2014 will also hold surprise announcements we don’t know about yet, usually lots of secret 2014 titles from Nintendo. What remained is what you see below, and while all these games are wildly different, we truly believe these games will all be on par with each other with 8, 9 or 10 out of 10 scores.

Runners Up:
Fortnite, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, Child of Light, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Among The Sleep, Routine, The Forest, Shantae Half Genie Hero, Shovel Knight, Team Meat’s Mew-Genics, Mercenary Kings, Mercenary Ops, River City Ransom: Underground, Lobodestroyo, Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey, Road Not Taken, Daylight, Tropico 5, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, Earth Defense Force 2025, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, The Witch and the Hundred Knight, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, Don Bradman Cricket 14, Drakengard 3, Sins of a Dark Age, Toukiden, Ragnarok Odyssey ACE, Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars, Strider 2014, and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle.
