The year 2014 had already come to a close, but there were a lot of video games that satisfy gamers and critics. With that, here is the list of some of the best video games of the year 2014:
- This War of Mine
Most video games that take place in war-torn areas, you play as either an elite soldier or a commander. But in This War of Mine, the story focuses on the entirely different perspective of war. In the game, you play as the leader of a pack of survivors taking refuge in a dilapidated shelter.
- Far Cry 4
The fourth instalment of the Far Cry series takes you on a mission to the fictional country of Kyrat to travel the exotic lands to defeat the blonde-headed tyrannical Pagan Min and his evil army of soldiers. In Far Cry 4, there is a lot of exploration this time around, coupled with a lot of action-packed battles.
- Dark Souls II
Gamers can keep saying it’s the hardest and most relentless video game in the market, but there is no denying that Dark Souls II is one enjoyable action-and-adventure third-person game. You play as any of the classes and set out to vanquish minions and deadly bosses. The good thing about Dark Souls II is that the game reduces the number of monsters on the spot where you die repeatedly, so it makes the game a little more forgiving.
- Super Smash Bros.
The popular beat-em-up game from Nintendo is back, and this time with a slew of new characters. In the newest version of Smash Bros., you can now play not just classic Nintendo characters such as Mario and Link, but you can also play non-Nintendo characters such as Pac-man and Megaman. Plus, the newest feature in this Nintendo game is the ability to create your own fighter and send them out to the ring.
- Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
The latest instalment to the Call of Duty franchise has gotten even better with more realistic graphics and action-packed campaigns. With the introduction of the armor called the exosuit, you can now jump higher in the air, scale buildings and punch enemies right into a brick wall. On top of that, the multi-player feature is as astounding as the previous Call of Duty instalments.
- Alien Isolation
In this survival-horror game, you play the role of Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Ellen Ripley from Alien. Fifteen years have passed since the events of the film and Amanda is now all alone in a spaceship littered with malevolent aliens. The combination of horror and action is more intense, as you try to make your way through the ship in order to recover a black box recorder – and eventually try to get back alive.
- Papers, Please
No one ever thought that doing a simple routine as processing paperwork can be a great game objective. In this one-developer simulation game, you play the role of an immigrations officer who must screen applicants trying to cross the border to the city of Arstotzkha. There are a lot of moral dilemmas in the midst of mundane tasks, so get ready to make painful decisions.
