Drive Club for 2014!
Disgaea D2, Dynasty Warriors 8, Puppeteer and Beyond Two Souls should also be contenders for game of the year. Sport games should just be emitted imho.

failedartifact said:

December 20th, 2:32 pm

Shenmue 3. There is no other game that should be number 1 on most Most Anticipated Game 2014. Though, if developement hasn’t started, HD remakes are well overdue.

jayrabbit said:

December 20th, 2:49 pm

question: does votes only count for those who cast a vote while signed into the psn on the blog? (meaning if I wasnt able to comment in this section because I didnt sign in does that mean my vote didnt count as well?)

I understand that you are trying to save space in the post but for an event that happens once a year it should be lengthy to begin with, limiting it to 10 each does give more consolidated results but does not give true merit and detours us from wanting to do a write in as most people will pick from the list rather then putting in a name, meaning that those who didnt make the list will lose votes that they would of got if it had otherwise been present.

Most Anticipated 2014 Game

Elder Scrolls Online would be my pick here but they announced a monthly subscription fee so the Winner is WatchDogs considering I pre-ordered a PS4 for it.

KnifingGrimace said:

December 20th, 2:55 pm

No David Hayter, no Most Anticipated Game of 2014. Sorry, MGSV.

InFAMOUS, I choose you. Would you like your tiara now, or later?


December 20th, 3:00 pm

most anticipitated game definitely MGS: ground zeroes & phantom pain. closely followed by watchdogs and the division!

S_L_I_C_K said:

December 20th, 3:01 pm

so who else voted for H-Hour worlds elite for most anticipated?

masturcide said:

December 20th, 3:10 pm

It’s a good sign that “Most Anticipated” was the hardest choice for me.

Metal Gear Solid V (my vote)
The Order
The Witness
Dark Souls II
Elder Scrolls Online

Some good things coming in the future.

PlatinumDogs said:

December 20th, 3:11 pm

mexicanwarrior62 said:

December 20th, 3:11 pm

PS4 – Battlefield 4

PS3 – The Last of Us

PS Vita – Tearaway

PSN – Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

Most Anticipated – Infamous Second Son

rabidninjamonky said:

December 20th, 3:16 pm

Instead of best digital game, there should have been 3 separate categories. Best digital vita game, best digital ps3 game and best cross-buy game. I would have chose Velocity Ultra, Call of Juarez Gunslinger and Guacamelee! My most anticipated 2014 is Persona 5!

patrass_244 said:

December 20th, 3:16 pm

anxious to know something about the order 1886

yazter said:

December 20th, 3:25 pm

I voted for CoD: Ghosts as the game of the year for PS4.

Out of all the games I played on the PS4 (I have ACIV, BF4 and KZ) this game was literally the least glitchy and actually playable. Sad that for the “PS4 GotY” I had to choose the one that is “least bad.”

I know, I’m surprised by my own vote as well.

zenparadox1 said:

December 20th, 4:01 pm

How about a big round of applause for the most over hyped and overrated game of 2013: Bioshock Infinite

bash_rabb98 said:

December 20th, 4:05 pm

I want battlefield 4 to be a little cheaper

locobeast87 said:

December 20th, 4:08 pm

PS4 GOTY: Knack
PS3 GOTY: The Last of Us
Vita GOTY: Kilzone Mercenary
Most Anticipated of 2014: Can’t decide either The Division or Destiny

retro25 said:

December 20th, 4:23 pm

Grand Theft Auto 5 for PS3 game of the year because it’s a huge sand box game. GTA rules!!!!!!! ;)

FeddeCampo said:

December 20th, 4:23 pm

Hard to decide and pick one of all those amazing games.
Anyway here is what I picked:

My PS4 GOTY: “Killzone Shadowfall” Probably the most amazing graphic experience that I had on my screen this year.I know that there will be much more greatness to come anyway =)

My Ps3 GOTY: “The Last of Us” (Amazing acting,gameplay,story and innovative Multiplayer.It was hard to decide this having so much fun games especially GTA V but being a first game from what I hope to be a saga, it was amazingly made)

My PSVita GOTY: “Tearaway” (Great game to have fun using almost every human sense) xD

My Digital GOTY: “The Walking Dead Season 2” (The excitment I felt with this game was hard to compare to any other)

My Most Anticipated Game of 2014: “Watchdogs” (I was really looking forward this title on 2013 but the excitment has to wait till next year and taht’s why is my most waited game yet)

But leaving the votatiojn behind I think that every game this year and the ones that will come can be anyone’s favorite thanks to every man at Sony and Playstation who makes it possible bringing us the console, the controller and the space here to let them know what we think.


December 20th, 4:30 pm

@12 LoL didn’t they just release a bunch of vita games

Kchow23 said:

December 20th, 4:33 pm

NBA 2K14 (PS4)
Last of Us (PS3), but if you caught me on different days I might go Beyond: Two Souls
Tearaway (PS Vita), but I am 50-50 with Hotline Miami
Hotline Miami (Best PSN release)
The Order 1886 (Most anticipated), tied with inFamous: Second Son though.

TheAmazingOscar said:

December 20th, 4:34 pm

I don’t know if it’s going to be released in 2014, but I’m eager to play the next Uncharted.

Kchow23 said:

December 20th, 4:41 pm

They were all really hard choices though, there were so many good games in 2013 and many that I haven’t even been able to get around to! Looking forward to 2014… oh and don’t forget Puppeteer man that game was awesome :)

jcgoodekillz said:

December 20th, 4:50 pm

Detsurasu said:

PS4 – KZ
Most anticipated PS4 game – MGS V.

The Last Of Us will remain as the masterpiece, which turned all gaming industry upside down. Bravo Naughty Dog!

EyesBleedNoSleep said:

December 20th, 4:55 pm

PS4 Game of the Year 2013 – Assassin’s Creed IV
Why? Loved the whole Pirates setting.

PS3 Game of the Year 2013 – The Last of Us
Why? It was a game that sucked me in & didn’t let go until the end.

PS Vita Game of the Year 2013 – Dragon’s Crown
Why? It was not only a great game it was a living work of art!

Best Digital Release 2013 – Minecraft
Why? Addicting. @_@

Most Anticipated 2014 Game – The Elder Scrolls Online
Why? The never ending game just became never ending.

PS4 – no vote, not enough to warrant buying a system yet, not without BC, got too much PS3 stuff still to play
PS3 – keep your TLOU and GTAV – both have too much hype – give me Puppeteer for sheer fun – this game needs more love on this site – of note, I haven’t gotten around to Ni No Kuni yet, waiting in the yet to play pile
Vita – Soul Sacrifice is just too much fun
Digital – Spelunky rocks, nuff said
Most Anticipated – got to go with Watch Dogs though ultimately I’m worried about too much hype and not living up to expectations

KillerReaper31 said:

December 20th, 5:14 pm

I am looking to see how watch dogs and hope that grand theif auto 5 gets game of the year

Weyzu said:

December 20th, 5:15 pm

And nobody mentioned upcoming Persona 5 for PS3. :( Come on, last two were brilliant!

dkarlowicz10 said:

December 20th, 6:19 pm

There are a lot of high profile for PS4 for 2014.

There are no big high profile games for the PS Vita for 2014 (maybe Kingdom Hearts X HD and Borderlands 2?) . 2013 has several high profile games including Tearaway, Killzone Mercenary, Ys Celcetta among the many released this year. I hope that 2014 will have many high profile PS Vita games. Maybe Infamous for Vita, NHL, NBA 2K14, WWE 2k14, GTA Vita? I know some of these are 3rd party, but it would be nice for existing PS Vita owners and prospective Vita buyers to know as to what is on the horizon for 2014 for this awesome handheld.

zingakun said:

December 20th, 6:23 pm

I voted for “Lords of the Fallen” as my most anticipated 2014 game. I’m really looking forward to playing this game, but the lack of news on development or a gameplay get me a little worried that it could be a major fail…

If it was a section regarding “most anticipated feature” it would be to me Gaikai without even thinking about.

oOoSLOWPOKEoOo said:

December 20th, 6:48 pm

My votes for poll from top to bottom in order:
Killzone Shadow Fall
The Last of Us
Killzone Mercenary
Minecraft: PS3 Edition

2 other most anticipated games:
Watch Dogs
Metal Gear Solid V

4 other great games this year for PS3:
Grand Theft Auto V
Call of Duty Ghost
God of War Ascension
and Tomb Raider
Enjoyed every bit of all these games
Unfortunately I only own Ghost and Minecraft from this list, but played some of the others like Grand Theft Auto V, God of War, Tomb Raider, and Killzone Shadow Fall at friends houses.
