The Lazygamer Awards 2014 – Best Xbox One Game

1 min read


We’re a year into the future right now. At this point, the training wheels are off, and developers are kranking out games that are taking proper advantage of the hardware in front of them. But there’s always going to be that one game that defines a console, that carries it forward, raking in applause, accolades and sales. And this year, the Xbox One had a killer exclusive ace up its sleeve that grabbed us by the eyeballs.

And the winner is…Sunset Overdrive!


Brash, audacious and just pure fun, Sunset Overdrive took us by surprise this year. Not only does it look great, it plays fantastically as well as the game ditches crates and concrete barriers for a traversal system that has players constantly on the move. Sunset Overdrive was also one of a select few games this year that managed to launch without any substantial day one problems, thanks to a solid design process.

It’s also a joy to behold in action, as the colourful palette brightened up the gaming scene with explosions of vibrant primary colours and a don’t-give-a-damn attitude that made it endearing. Beyond the single-player experience, the game was equally enjoyable in the online space thanks to Chaos Squad, which set players against the clock to complete objectives and survive the night.

Honourable mentions:

Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Forza Horizon 2

          Today at 12. Long overdue. Thanks to not getting a 13th cheque and my company messing up my tax and me having to pay SARS a truckload of money I am seriously considering burning the place down on my way out and not coming back next year.
          Not even the Steam sale can cheer me up.

          Hammersteyns upvote cheered me up but thats mandatory.
          Merry Xmas guys

    Good choice for the Xbox One best game of 2014 (two thumbs up), the super sexy cirrus white console that came with it also needs a special mention …

    I didn’t play enough of this to truly comment. I felt it would become too much of the same after a bit of play. But hey, it’s definitely better than most other games that have come out

      I wasn’t going to get it because I thought the exact same thing, but the Lazygamer video and review changed my mind. This is almost my game of the year, and most definitely my top choice for XOne game of the year. I’m getting close to 100% everything now, and am still wanting more.

        Nice. I’m honestly glad to hear that.

        Seems it’s one of those games where you have to put in a bit of time to get going with it.

        I made a video that actually influenced a person for the positive? Holy shit, I fucked up bad.
