    It's just a curiosity I admit, but I kind of want to know what item or ability you thought to be the most OP in a 2014 game. I myself found most of the weapons (especially the hidden blades and the Air Rifle) in Assassin's Creed: Rogue to be overpowered as always, but I found a power in Castlevania Lords of Shadows 2 to be even more so. Namely the Mist power, obtaining this made you nearly invincible.
    Every time one of the enemies tries to attack you can just quickly shift into mist and avoid them, and only a few bosses can even touch you in that state.
    Truthfully though, I have not played a lot of (new) games this year, so there could be a lot of others that are far more overpowered. So what are your picks?

    I can only think of gunpoint's mechanic to rewire the electrics. While there's no denying that this is part of the game's base mechanics, it really should've been nerfed more than it was. There's hardly any constraint to how you wire which wire to which device, so what was probably intended to be a puzzle game ends up being sort of a creativity tool for how you want to fuck around with the guards.
    Though it's pretty OverPowered in itself, it just gets an extra ridiculous-boost if you get the upgrade to mess with the electric guns. There's something totally wrong (albeit in a fun way) if you want the guard to shoot you...because rather than the trigger firing the actual gun, it'll send an electric shock to said guard. :P

    Where the land sea lions live.
    Mega Rayquaza, it can hold items(other megas can't), has massive stats, and an ability that reduces super effective moves to flying types.

    In ssb4 every body has an op most would say rosa,mac, and maybe diddy. Really ifun a charter is op it just depends on playing style and skill of the player

    No, really, check out any source or any tournament. Diddy has everything that all the other characters lack, such as proper air combos, proper options out of shield, proper punishes. The top three characters are Diddy, Sheik, and Rosalina, and Diddy is far and above superior. The new mechanics of SSB4 make it so that every character has less combo and punish options, but Diddy has more potential than anyone else.

    No I agree to an extent but it all depends on playing style personally I find diddy kong to be one of the worst characters but that's my playing style. Also my personal opinion (like everyone's opinion) isn't the same as the tier lists

    Binding of Isaac Rebirth... too many things to list, really. Honorable mentions go to Dark Bum, Epic Fetus, Brimstone, Mom's Knife and the Stopwatch.

    Tammy's Head is only OP if you already have extremely strong tears (or are playing as Azazel). Also, Dark Bum still gets like spirit hears like 90% of the time. He's a tiny bit less good but still fucking amazing. But yeah, RIP

    The balancing in pokemon is shit regardless.
    If you just used one pokemon and caught others to be HM slaves, you'd easily beat the game with exp share off.
