The best games of the year are Earth Defense Force 2025 and Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed. No contest. Those ARE games, hilarious, entertaining, ridiculous and PURE FUN.

This did a good job of reminding me how amazing the first half of the year was for Playstation Plus. There were so many great AAA titles like Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Metro Last Light, Batman Arkham City, Crysis 3. Then we reached the latter part of the year and things took a turn…

Still, there were a lot of good games over the past year. It’s hard to believe that all of these were in 2014.

“Note: To qualify, title must have launched first on PlayStation Store.”

If so, then why is Fez listed as a nominee? It launched first on a certain other console in 2012. Also, Rogue Legacy was released for PC in 2013, but is console exclusive to Playstation platforms. Maybe you accidentally put Fez on the Best Digital Release list instead of the Best PS Plus Title list.

PS4: Infamous Second Son
PS3: Dark Souls II
Vita: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair
Digital: Transistor
Studio of the Year: Ubisoft Montreal
Most Anticipated: Persona 5

Biggest surprise this year was how good Transistor was. I never thought I’d love a game so much. Also, Most Anticipated has to go to Persona 5. Loved the third game on the PS2, so I’m really excited to see more of the fifth entry next year.

My votes,

PS4: Alien Isolation ( I had some really good times with this one. Pretty much grew up with the original movies.)

PS3: South Park Stick of Truth (Turn-based RPG + South Park = Major win in my book.)

Vita: Final Fantasy X/X-2 (I know it’s a port, but it still counts.)

Best Digital Release: Child of Light (Highly underrated game. Don’t let the fact it’s from Ubisoft scare you.)

Best Studio: Creative Assembly (They did an amazing job with Alien Isolation. I had serious nostalgia goggles playing that.)

Best PS+ Title: Velocity 2X (You guys really need a “buy permanently” option for Plus users. I’d pay money for this in a heartbeat.)

Most Anticipated 2015: Arkham Knight (This was my main reason for buying a PS4.)

PS3: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax
Vita: Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
Digital: Velocity 2X
Studio: FuturLab (Velocity 2X)
PS+: Arkham City
2015: Arkham Knight

That said, there were some great games this year. Not as good as last year at all, but there were some gems if you knew where to look. Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Child of Light were also highlights for me this year. :o
On the other end of the spectrum, I was less impressed with Freedom Wars and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham than I wanted to be. =/

For 2015, the big one for me is Arkham Knight. Otherwise known as the reason to buy a PS4. ;)
Also looking forward to Persona 5, Persona 4: Dancing All Night (which I really hope we get), Hell Divers, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Shovel Knight, Severed. Hopefully Danganronpa: Another Episode gets localised too. =D
