Polling a group of nerds (thanks RVGH!), we have some winners for “best of” in games last year.
Best FPS – Far Cry 4
Best RPG – Dragon Age 3
Best Open World – TIE! Dragon Age 3, Shadow of Mordor
Best Simulator – Goat Simulator
Best Visuals – Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure Allstar Battle *1 *1 – released 2013 in Japan, internationally 2014. Allowed.
Best Music – Transistor
Best Platformer – TIE! Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Shovel Knight

Best Strategy – Grey Goo
Best Early Access – Crypt of the Necrodancer
Most Improved (for sequels/HD remakes) – FTL: Advanced Edition
SPECIAL: Most Piece of Shit at launch – Assassin’s Creed: Unity
I might do a long-form with justification for each. I haven’t played them all, so will need to get some feedback before then.
Thanks to whoever I stole this idea from in RVGH, and Kyle for coming up with the full list of voting topics!
