It’s the most wonderful time of the year. That time of the year when reflecting on the best of the best in video games of the last year becomes the centerpiece of many gaming conversations, and the standout titles of the year begin to receive honors from various critics and publications from around the web. That’s right folks! Game of the year time has finally arrived.
On this edition of Nerdist: Play, I’ll be firing off a list of games that I thoroughly enjoyed, before picking my very own game of the year– but not before checking out the game (or non game) known as “Emagon” that PlayStation Spain has been teasing for the last couple of days.
I asked you guys on Twitter what your game of the year 2014 was and here are some of the answers that didn’t make it into this episode:
@Malik4Play As of today? Far Cry 4, its fanfuckingtastic.

@Malik4Play If we’re talking honestly… probably Mario Kart 8, that game has gotten the most mileage (/pun) with friends this year.

@Malik4Play Hearthstone, and I never would have guessed that until I played it for months on end.
