    In my opinion 2014 has been one of the greatest years in gaming. So many many games have come out or are coming out. Live Thru Games will collectively choose a game of the year but I figured I would make my own as well. Since this year is not finished this is just a watch list. My game of the year may change to a game on this list or a game that hasn’t come out yet. My vote now is most likely going to change after deliberating.  
    South Park: The Stick of Truth
    Dark Souls 2
    Shovel Knight
    Mario Kart 8
    Sunset Overdrive
    Halo: The Master Chief Collection

    Games yet to come out or plan on playing
    Dragon Age: Inquisition 
    Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions
    Super Smash Bros. Wii U
    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

    My Game of The Year (So Far)
    Shovel Knight

    Right now Shovel Knight is my game of the year, and for so many reasons. I’m an old school gamer at heart and Shovel Knight paid homage to the best old school platformers. It took great ideas from Mega Man, Mario, Castlevania and then added it’s own twist to them. A few examples would be an amazing world map like Mario, getting new weapons from fallen bosses like Mega Man and the same in depth levels and style as Castlevania. Each level was a pure joy to play and left me oozing with nostalgia. If you haven’t played Shovel Knight, please do.
