With the release of XBOX ONE and PS4 this year, more gaming interactive companies had created an exciting and fun games through out the year in 2014. If you’re looking for what gamers think about the best video games in 2014, check out this list:
DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION
Monsters are pouring out of a hole in the sky, nations are fighting, and, naturally, you’re the only one who can rally the world to save itself. It’s a good thing, then, that you have such a great video game to help you get ‘er done. The latest role-playing game from genre master Bioware is also one of their best, a massive, brilliantly designed trip into a war-torn fantasy world. Cherry-picking the best bits from the first two Dragon Age games, Inquisition gets it right as both a big picture, politically-infused epic and an intimate, party-based adventure. Smart, funny, and absolutely engrossing, it’s our favorite game of 2014.

HEARTHSTONE: HEROES OF WARCRAFT
It’s a good thing Hearthstone doesn’t track ‘time played’, because we’re pretty sure we’d get fired for it. After months of polishing in beta, Blizzard released their uber-slick, wildly addictive collectible card game in early 2014, and quickly followed it up with a solo adventure (Curse of Naxxramas) and a huge card expansion (Goblins vs. Gnomes). Its elegant design makes for a game that’s easy to learn, tough to master, and impossible to stop playing. Best of all, it’s one of the few examples of a free-to-play game done pretty much exactly right.

MIDDLE-EARTH: SHADOW OF MORDOR
If you told us last year a game based on The Lord of the Rings would be one of 2014’s best, we’d have assumed you were being brainwashed by Saruman. But Shadow of Mordor does astonishing things with its license, turning a well-worn world into a brand new experience. The game’s innovative Nemesis system breathes life into the open-world genre by transforming every orc into a potential rival. Couple that with top-notch production values and dangerously cool combat, and you get one seriously preciousssss action game.

The first new effort from longtime Halo developer Bungie didn’t plan on being the year’s most polarizing game, but that’s exactly what happened to Destiny. Overhyped? Sure, but look past all the things Destiny isn’t and you’ll find one of the most mechanically satisfying shooters in years. Here’s hoping Bungie builds on this solid foundation.

Tense and authentic, Sega’s survival-horror saga is a welcome return to form for the apex predator. Alien: Isolation’s greatest strength is its atmosphere, which lovingly recreates the mood, the production design, even the lens flares of Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece. The gameplay has its ups and downs, but a month after you’ve finished playing Alien: Isolation, it’ll still linger in your mind.
