    Fantasy Life. A really underrated gem.

    Other than that, the only games from 2014 i really enjoyed were RYSE Son of Rome on PC (also vastly underrated) and Civilization Beyond Earth.

    Plus i believe Alien Isolation was great, but i have not completed it yet.

    Admittedly, I played few games this year. I was either busy with school, work, or Netflix more often than not. I'm going to give my GOTY to Tales of Hearts R though. It's the first game in a long while that I've spent over 40 hours on, much less beaten, and that I've actually enjoyed playing through again on NG+. It got my attention, was fun, had a good story, and was overall a pretty good experience. Hell, it still is a good experience.

    Well, just finished myriad parties featuring 8 player Smash Bros battles - a riot, but nah, still not my number one! Said parties also had Mario Kart 8 tournies though, and now my decision has been swayed.... Forza Horizon 2 is easily the greatest current gen racing game out there, and rather like Burnout Paradise last gen, may never be topped, but for sheer multiplayer fun there can only be one GOTY for me:

    MK8 :D

    I'm not done with Bayonetta 2 yet (more than halfway through, I think), but I'm inclined to agree. Bayonetta 2 is the funnest 2014 release I played this year, and somehow managed to improve on an already amazing predecessor.

    My honorable mentions go to Shovel Knight, Super Smash Bros. 4, Super Smash Bros.: Project M 3.5 (yes, I'm counting this), Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Kirby Triple Deluxe, and Bravely Default (I haven't played much of the latter, but I seriously love it so far).

    If we're including games that didn't come out this year, but that I played for the first time this year, honorable mentions have to go to Deus Ex: Human Revolution- Director's Cut (another one I haven't finished yet), Mirror's Edge, You Have to Win the Game!, Portal, Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles, Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, Mega Man X3, Lone Survivor: Director's Cut, Thomas Was Alone, Shantae, and SteamWorld Dig: A Fistful of Dirt

    here comes the wrench in the gears - Mario Golf : World Tour

    I've been playing it quite a bit over the past 7 months and I really enjoy it. I love Mario Golf titles.

    Just wanted to follow up on my previous comment: I beat Bayonetta 2 this week, and can confirm that it is, indeed, my goty 2014, as I previously said.

    My 2014 GOTY goes to Insurgency such a great competitive and co-operative realistic FPS.

    For me it has to be The Binding of Isaac Rebirth without a doubt. Working on that Real Platinum God. :gba:

    Pokemon ORAS comes as a close second.
