2 games that have stood out for you this year

Not necessarily released this year -- just 2 you have played..

For me its going back to Overlord..i really appreciate what Triumph studios accomplished with this game - still fairly gorgeous too.

Found Call of Juarez Gunslinger - talk about your breath of fresh air with FPS. Constant narration and the old west setting feel very unique.

We're playin' those mind games together
Pushin' the barriers, plantin' seeds

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - Just a fun, engaging RPG.

Arcania: Gothic 4 - At first, I was put off by the rough looking graphics and presentation. But, the more I played this game, the more I saw the charm of an old-style RPG come through. A really enjoyable game with lots of dark humor. :-)

Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 have been my games this year.

I also always play the Walking Dead Game when a new episode is released

It makes absolutely no sense to put the words "this year" in the topic title, only to name a 7 year old game and a 1 year old game.

What's the purpose in owning a Grenade Launcher?
The sheer inability to continue life without it ! ! !

He did say that they didn't necessarily have to be released this year, just that you have played this year.

I'm gonna say Far Cry 3 and Tomb Raider. Loved those 2 games.

Hmm I would say Spec Ops The Line and Bioshock Infinite are the two best games I played in 2014 that stood out the most. Out of games that were actually released this year I would say Titanfall and Valiant Hearts.

We're living at the mercy of the pain and the fear,
Until we get it, forget it, let it all disappear.

Nothing really.

I'm too jaded, I guess.

Probably Drakengard 3 and EDF 2025, though there are a ton of new games I've played this year.
#10levyjl1988Posted 8/3/2014 1:37:54 PM
Dark Souls 2 and The Wolf Among Us

I hate games with bad game design
