It is safe to say that 2014 has been a good year for games. It's not just that we've seen spectacular blockbusters released almost from the start of the year, across all game consoles; 2014 has been a spectacular year for game creativity as we've seen indies and arthouse titles find real success courtesy of download platforms.
Our awards this year have been the most popular that we've ever seen on the site, with well over 1,000 people voting for their favourite games across 16 categories. Over the next couple of weeks we'll be listing the two highly commendeds (second and third place) and winner of each category, one per day.
Last but not least we have the PC which, thanks to the likes of Steam, continues to see an endless stream of quality games. Finding the good ones within the mass is becoming more and more difficult, but there were many, many great games released for PC over the last year.
