    Now that 2014 is almost at an end, I thought I would share what are my Top 10 games from this year.
    This isn't an official list and doesn't represent GBAtemp's GotY or any other of the staff's feelings. It also doesn't cover all platforms as I don't play all platforms, it is simply what I found to be the best of the many games I have played in 2014.
    Without further ado, here is my Top 10 for 2014!

    #10: Demon Gaze

    So there we go! That is my personal list of my favorite games of 2014.

    You should add the systems the games are from.

    To be honest, I the only two 3DS games I cared about this whole year were ORAS and Persona Q. Bravely Default is fine but I honestly haven't touched that in months now. So yeah, my list is almost the same.

    Difficult to pick a GOTY for me, it's between 2:

    Mario Kart 8
    &
    Forza Horizon 2

    The whole house are gamers, and I've often got friends or family round... I suspect if this wasn't the case then MK8's limited single player would've made my decision far easier. Horizon 2 has set the bar for racers this gen, and has set it that high I'm not sure it'll get beaten either, THAT'S how good it is!

    Other worthwhile mentions:

    Smash Bros (Wii U, though the 3DS version was also rather decent), and Shadow of Mordor.... Destiny & Transistor were also very decent (though Transistor didn't reach the lofty heights of Bastion, so for me was a teeny bit disappointing)
    Last of Us Remastered was glorious again, but I'm not including remakes as they don't count, which includes the similarly excellent Halo:MCC. As a driving game nut I also enjoyed The Crew (once you got past the piss poor story/plot) and DriveClub.

    Roll on 2015 - already looking like there's some crackers on the way, with hopefully more to follow!

    Well I don't play much 3DS as my son is always on it and I haven't bought a WiiU yet but intend to in 2015 (I'm currently saving for one). I'm sure you noticed that the site stopped being primarily Nintendo focused many years ago and we now cover all platforms :grog:
    I'm not going to put games in my top 10 that I haven't played though I imagine Bayonetta 2 would be in there somewhere if I had it as I loved the first game.
    I've completed every game in this list and many of them to 100% for the platinum trophies.

    I missed out on many games this year but I really love Freedom Wars.
    I also picked up FFX HD but I didn't like it. I suppose im the other half of the fanbase T-hug was talking about :P
    An other honorable mention would be Minecraft for PS Vita. I could never imagine how addictive that game is when you can play it anywhere.

    I think DangaRonpa 1 and 2 should be put together.

    I probably cross out Demon Gaze though, I prefer Etrian Odyssey more.

    It's called "T-hug's Top Ten", not "GBATemp's Top Ten". I don't agree with this list at all, but I respect it. No rage is justified.

    >No Dark Souls 2

    I am very disappointed :sad:

    Obviously Dark Souls 2 is my top pick for GOTY, but I also enjoyed what I played of Dragon Age Inquisition and Far Cry 4. The former I've only played a couple hours of so far unfortunately, and the latter I put a good 10 or so hours into it and both are quite fun, pretty much what I expected from both.

    Other than that I haven't really played too many 2014 games I guess :unsure: This year has pretty much been a billion hours of Dark Souls 1 and 2 for me :(

    EDIT: Oh, an CoD AW was actually not too bad either, enjoyed what I played of that.

    And Lords of the Fallen, it would've been such a nice game if it didn't crash every 5 minutes :(

    Nice list. :)

    Hard to say to what degree I (dis)agree with it as I haven't played 'em (or can judge what you have played and didn't made the list), but I appreciate the effort. :D

    I have seriously never heard of half of those games and/or simply haven't played the other half, Seems like a great list though. I pretty much didn't play many different games this year but when I did there was only one game took my soul away from the others :mellow:

    I wonder if these fanboys would need to put up their favorite systems crap on first page so much if they actually had good games.
