Now with our Honorable Mentions out of the way, we’re at the moment of truth; our Top 10 Game of the Year list for 2014!

For disclosure’s sake, over several emails this past 7 weeks, the staff have converged to discuss what is and isn’t worthy for nomination. All remakes, remasters and ports were exempt from eligibility. Once we broke it down to a final selection of 30, questionnaire forms were sent out, highlighting all games eligible in a randomized order. I then asked everyone to provide a minimum of a Top 5 list in ranked order, with a maximum of a Top 10 list possible. Here is the points breakdown per ranking:

  • 1st place: 14 points
  • 2nd place: 12 points
  • 3rd place: 10 points
  • 4th place: 8 points
  • 5th place: 6 points
  • 6th place: 5 points
  • 7th place: 4 points
  • 8th place: 3 points
  • 9th place: 2 points
  • 10th place: 1 point

With that in mind, let’s get to the final list!
