GAMING LOVE FOR EVERYBODY

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.

    My favourite is definitely The Crew because it’s the only one I’ve played. Unless the beta doesn’t count. In which case, none lol.

    If one looks at the amount of creativity in that video montage, one can say without a doubt that this medium is a FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.

    If I could go back in time to when people were playing PONG not even half a generation ago, and showed them this montage, they would be in total SHOCK.

      I think they should take a year and just remaster old games. 1st on my list: Heart of Darkness, 2nd Abes Oddesy

        I think Abes Oddesy HD is still in the works.
        You have a point considering many of today’s gamers were born in the 00s and never got to experience half of the magic. Like films I see many many remastered versions over the next 5 years as the technology is meeting uncanny Vally in there is no point in advancing the hardware for the next 10-15 years. They still need to get 60fps and 4k right.

    I had difficulty differentiating the games from any of the past few years. Felt like I was watching a similar video for games in 2008
