• 2014 in Gaming: The Year in Under 2 Minutes

    359,732 views 2 years ago
    2014 has been an intense time for games. It has been a year of big delays, messy launches, and non-stop controversy. It has also been a year in which both AAA and indie developers produced innumerable games that overflowed with both artistry and ambition. This is a celebration of their work, and hopefully a re-affirmation that video games are something worth believing in.

    These are by no means the only great games from 2014. Your favorite game isn't missing because I don't think it is worthy... more likely it just didn't edit together well with the rest or had to go to keep it under 2 minutes. I also attempted to give some screen time to overachieving indies that deserve the attention, rather than trying to cram in every major release.

    In the nature of simplicity, eligibility for inclusion in this video is based on North American release dates. Remakes and re-releases are also not eligible, since it seems unfair to force the best games of 2014 to compete for space with masterpieces of years past.
