Divinity OS for me. It should win GOTY but we all know a game like that can't win GOTY in mainstream media. Pretty sure the actually GOTY champ will be Smash Bros when it comes out.

@Flubbbs: yeah that may be a dangerous precedent to set if game journalists starting doing that no matter how awesome the game is.

  • Broken Sword 5
  • Broken Age
  • Divinity Original Sin .

But I know none of these will win GOTY on mainstream media but these are the games that I enjoyed most , this year so far . Didn't play Transistor and Child of Light yet . Soon ...

I like Broken Sword, but got very confused over the plot midway through Broken Sword 2. Is Broken Sword 5 worth playing if you have not played any of 3 or 4 ?

Yes , you can skip 3 and 4 . Broken Sword 5 is completely new storyline , like every other game in the series . 3 and 4 are also weakest in the series . This new one is on par with the first game .

Divinity is average at best. I'm dying for a good game to really get immersed in and Divinity was a chore that I couldn't force myself through. Probably the worst year for videogames I can remember. Hopefully Dragon Age saves the year because I've got nothing that is fun right now.

Watchdogs

I bought watchdogs played it for a lil while and just stopped. Haven't really had the desire to go back to it, it's kinda boring or maybe it's the story. It's a fine game on it's own but I don't know, I at least finished Infamous Second Son.

Honestly, kind of sad, MGS GZ was the best "gaming" I have had this year, yeah the demo but it was completely awesome. I don't even know if a game deserves a GOTY this year it's so dry. Maybe Sunset Overdrive will get it as it's the only thing that looks fresh and fun. I wouldn't be surprised if GOTY went to xbox one because of that.

Next year, OMG it's like ever other month there will be a GOTY caliber game coming out, this year is good to save up for the hurting my pockets will suffer in 2015.

So far more people have mentioned Divinity more than any other game. That's interesting and I'm glad a lot of you agree with me. Also, I'm surprised at people saying Watchdogs. I never gave it a shot because I keep hearing it's mediocre.

@kinectthedots: I wasn't serious at all. I bought watchdogs, played a total of like 4 hours. I just couldn't get into it. The game played fine, looked fine, but I didn't care about getting further into the world. I traded it in towards destiny.

I am looking forward to sunset overdrive, and FH2. I'm getting my ps4 at some point when I get my financial aid checks so I think I'll get kzsf or infamous SS with it. Which would you recommend?

@Cloud_imperium: cool I'll check it out.

Two was a direct sequel to one wasn't it, still including George and Nicole, so having played the first game was kind of needed to fully understand the second.

However if 5 is completely new surroundings new story, new chareters ill certainly check it out

I haven't played many games from 2014 as of yet but Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is one of the finest platformers I've ever played.

As unpopular as it is I've got to give it to Watch Dogs. I havent played Dark Souls 2 yet but if I had It would be it, I'm sure of it. Out of the 2014 games I played (wich werent many) Watch Dogs felt like the most complete experience

Definitly divinity and child of light , nothing else.

The only GOTY quality game I've played from this year so far is Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze and I'm pretty sure it will snatch the title from me in the end. Very rarely is there a game made with this much care and talent.

Then you need to play more games and on different genres than usual. That last statement made me crack a bit ...

Wolfenstein: TNO, Divinity and The Wolf Among Us(if it counts), nothing else I've played this year is worthy enough to be considered. OP I see that you've mentioned Child of Light as being in the running, which is odd because it was a terrible game. The only good thing about Child of Light was the art style. The writing and storytelling was very trite, everything was incredibly streamlined for an "RPG", there was no challenge, no interesting bosses, the music became gratingly repetitive and the campaign was barely longer than the average shooter.

@happyduds77: mmm psychonauts was amazing. Still is. I played it back in the day after a surgery on my knee... the doc gave me some wacky pain meds which oddly made the game even better.

Can you vote for nothing? At least thus far. This has been the worst yr in gaming I can remember in a long time. I know it's a new console generation and that usually means very few top notch titles in the first yr, But normally you can get one or two AAA's. Just haven't seen that yet

Characters are the same . You still play as George and Nico , and there are characters from first two games as well like Hector Lane but plot has nothing to do with previous games .

Only Dark Souls 2, Mario Kart 8 and Divinity seem to be up there so far. Some other already released may enter because I don't see many of the upcoming releases being that good.

Divinity Original Sin hands down, nothing else has come close. Hopefully Wasteland 2 and pillars Of Eternity final versions kick but to.

Banished and Tesla Effect I enjoyed a ton to.

While I've enjoyed a number of this year's releases I don't think any have a shot at GotY.

Stick of Truth is probably my nominee so far, but I have a feeling it won't make my top 3 by year's end.

You absolutely do. 'Tis an unmatched platforming masterpiece IMHO. It does everything so perfectly and the game works on every single level it can. It is a glowing example of expert design.

It's such a grand time to be a platformer fanatic thanks to Nintendo, Rayman, and the indie scene.
