Watch the entirety of gaming in 2014 in just 2 minutes

4 min read


The end is nigh… for 2014 that is! Toxicity, industry drama, disappointments, messy launches and bugs aside, it was a solid year for gaming I reckon. I’d like to think that every single gamer – regardless of their platform of choice – got to play a bunch of rad titles over the past 12 months. Want to take a quick stroll down memory lane? Check out this montage which sums up gaming in 2014.

It was put together by YouTube user Malcolm Klock, and clocks in at just under two minutes (via Game Informer)

2014 has been an intense time for games. It has been a year of big delays, messy launches, and non-stop controversy. It has also been a year in which both AAA and indie developers produced innumerable games that overflowed with both artistry and ambition. This is a celebration of their work, and hopefully a re-affirmation that video games are something worth believing in.

These are by no means the only great games from 2014. Your favorite game isn’t missing because I don’t think it is worthy… more likely it just didn’t edit together well with the rest or had to go to keep it under 2 minutes. I also attempted to give some screen time to overachieving indies that deserve the attention, rather than trying to cram in every major release.
