Default GOTY 2014 - Party at Amy's House

Now that 2014 is nearing its end, what games stuck out for you personally?

Did you play any games that surprised you in any way?

Which ones were huge disappointments?

On the 3DS side: Bravely Default, Fantasy Life, Tomodachi Life, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright, and Pokemon Omega Ruby were all games that I spent a lot of time with.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to play much on consoles this year.

Vita: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

PS3: Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd

Xbox 360: Earth Defense Force 2025

Xbox One: D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die

PC: Crimzon Clover WORLD IGNITION (i previously said Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance but i played that on consoles last year so i kinda feel bad about using it)

You all have terrible taste.

TBH, I'd be reluctant to give any game that I played this year a "GOTY title".

Fantasy Life- solid new IP with a charming aesthetic
Tomodachi Life- pleasant, amusing, and addicting
Bravely Default- challenging plus it had a cast of characters that I liked
Omega Ruby- nice update to one of my favorite games
PL vs PW- a unique gameplay combination

But they all had their drawbacks too.

Bayonetta 2, Metal Gear Rising, Audiosurf 2, SMASH, and Tropical Freeze
Biggest dissapointment: final bosses of Shadow of Mordor , lack of 3ds games, slap in the face to yoshi's island

Tropical Freeze was the best thing I played this year. Visuals, music and level design were all amazing, it's a complete joy of a game. Best game on Wii U I'd say.

Yeah, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was definitely the best game I played this year. I also enjoyed Bayonetta/Bayonetta 2.

For 3DS, I dunno, there wasn't much that stood out to me this year that I bought. I guess Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright was the best 3DS game I played.

Biggest disappointment goes to Yoshi's New Island.

Top games this year were Hearthstone, Smite, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright, Pokemon ORAS, and Smash bros.

Of those, I'd have to say my GOTY is Hearthstone.

I've been playing that game nonstop from January in beta(it officially released in March) all the way to around early October when school work prevented me from playing it. Definitely my GOTY choice, no contest.

I have no idea what my GOTY of this year is but there are three games in particular that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Those games would have to be...
Middle Earth : Shadow of Mordor,

Super Smash Bros for the Wii U and Bravely Default : Flying Fairy

I haven't opened and played either Dragon Age : Inquisition or Bayonetta 2 though, Those two have pretty good reviews

I'd go with either Bayonetta2 or Smash Bros for WiiU. I'm leaning more towards Smash as there is so much content in this game that I'll be playing it for years.

Not many 3DS games came ou this year and this is kinda disappointing. The fact that the 3DS games I am hyped for are all remakes is also kinda sad (Majora's Mask, Xenoblade Chronicles, MH4U)

I missed out on a lot this year. There's still a bunch of games that I've been wanting to play. I'm trying to remember which games even came out this year. I haven't been able to put Persona Q down since I've gotten it, though.

Dragon Age Inquisition is pretty much my GOTY. There's sooo much to do that you forget that there's a main story line. And the game is HUGE. I mean like so big it makes Skyrim look small. Everything feels so well done and immersive. It's hard to believe that this game exists after what Dragon Age 2 was.

Tons of great games on the 3DS, which is the system I spent most time on this year.

Tomodachi Life is a lot of fun
fantasy life is a great new IP with a ton of replay value/after game content
smash is of course great and it's awesome to play it wherever I go
pokemon omega ruby is proving to be great so far


Dissapointments-Yoshi's New Island takes the cake, but also mario golf and kirby.

As for the wiiu Tropical Freeze is absolutely glorious and great gameplay, along with Mario KArt 8 and Smash are my top 3 wiiu games. All amazing.

2014 has been a great year for nintendo haven't really played any other consoles, so can't speak for them
