If you're gonna make a thread like this at least do some research ....

You missed out loads of Nintendo games as well as Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, Garden Warfare and Fable Legends!


This is your first post,  You mention no Nintendo titles, just say its missing some.  luckily, and forgive me since i dont know how to multi quote.

You dont have to like nintendo but how can you forget Them titles O.o?

LoZ (not confirmed)
SSB4 for both WiiU and 3DS
MK8 hands down Sexy game
"X" this game looking better than FF (Xenoblade was the one of the best JRPGs)
Bayo2
DK Tropical Freeze (2D extremely hard platformer)
And many more"

 

That is a much friendlier more informative post.    I notice some titles on there that IGN rates low, so i welcome both of you to let us know more about these and why they may be great games, as review sites can be brutal.


Here is X trailer (must see) IGN commenters posted good responses to the trailers as i recall. Its the spirit Successor to Xenoblade Chronicle, one of the top rpgs of all time! Even on metacritic scored well!

Is it out in 2014?  i got confused at first with the lack of launch titles lol its to late.     I dont see that on IGN's list.  Looks incredible and something i would play if i could afford a second console.

edit:  why do they rate DK so low? i loved it as a kid, did the series go downhill or some conspiracy?



I am Torgo, I take care of the place while the master is away.

"Hes the clown that makes the dark side fun.. Torgo!"

Ha.. i won my bet, but i wasnt around to gloat because im on a better forum!  See ya guys on Viz

Around the Network

the most amazing time in gaming history was probably the introduction of the snes



you guys say this for every year.....

to summarize
2011 was epic
2012 was great
2013 is great (Mostly because of LastofUs and GTA5)

2014 looks ok to me at the moment, to be honest, many unannounced games so it's way too early to call it an amazing year. OP, your list is not amazing at all; not to mention, you even included titles like Uncharted 4 which is not even announced. Feels like you were bored and wanted a reason to post something.

I still remember the night we got it.  Driving to the store, i remember which store it was.  Getting it home, playing mario and F-zero..  I would have been 6 and i can remember VERY little before I was ten..  but that night is forever there.

ign is known for ripping on Nintendo, but if i had to guess maybe cuz everybody (including myself) thought retro studios was making metroid U lol! DK goes back to its old SNES roots. It lives up to Hardcore 2D platforming. Its a really good game, no lie! If you want a challenge try the first DK returns. they have a wii version and a 3ds version!



Around the Network

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Dragon Age: Inquisition
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Thief
Dark Souls 2



It certainly is a nice thought.

 

I cant wait for all those 1080p PS4 games.



for me 2013 was the best year in gaming this gen, currently 2014 isn't looking strong at all for me



because fuck nintendo. yeah, thats it. fuck Mario kart 8, X and smash bros!



I don't get this OP. I guess I understand if you think Microsoft and Nintendo have nothing to offer, but wouldn't you list those games any way, if only to bolster your argument that 2014 is the greatest year? Games like Tropical Freeze, Bayonetta 2, Kinect Sports Rivals, and Yoshi's New Island would only strengthen your case. Unannounced games, like Uncharted 4 and Black Ops 3, and upscaled ports, like The Last of Us and Gran Turismo, do not.

I guess it's a moot point any way, since I disagree about 2014 being the greatest year. 1998 holds that record and I'd be shocked if 2014 dislodged it. Games have been getting worse, not better.
