Bracketfag here. I know it's been a while but we're going to start the seeding process for the GOTY tournament for this year. Pic related is last year's "most overrated" tourney. We will do one of those as well but first we will do this.
Pay close attention
>List 1-5 games you honestly believe were objectively the best games to come out in 2014. IF YOU ARE LISTING MORE THAN ONE GAME, LIST THEM STARTING WITH THE GAME YOU BELIEVE IS THE BEST AND THEN NOVE DOWN THE LIST, this is important for the seeding process.
Well /v/, what will it be?
Really shows how much downhill this place has gotten.
I didn't like anything this year.
The only titles I was excited over were early access that didn't deliver.
Only new game I really played was Wasteland 2, which I got bored of because of the easily exploitable combat system.
1. Bayonetta 2
2. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
3. Dark Souls 2
4. Super Smash Bros 4
5. Captain Toad Tresure Tracker
6. Alien Isolation
7. Infamous: Second Son
Shit year, played 15 games and only 7 were actually decent
>tlou winning against gone home of all things
I hate nintoddlers so goddamn much
>tfw you weren't excited for any games this year
>tfw you're not sure if it's because the games are worse or because you're growing out gaming
1. Aliums Isolation
2. Bayo 2
3. Shadow of Mordor
4. Blade Symphony
Those last 2 because I haven't played many recent games and I at least found them decent
The game has a remastered version for no reason with the cover that shows it winning 100+ GOTY awards.
If that's not overrated I don't know what is.
I didn't like either game. But Gone Home didn't really garner the attention last of us did
It's actually a 7/10 game. Above average, but doesn't do anything new or interesting. Feels like a watered down and less fun RE4 with a badly implemented stealth gimmick and worse partner AI.
1: Dark Souls 2
2: South Park The Stick of Truth
3: The Evil Within
4: Mario Kart 8
5: Sunset Overdrive
Wow, this year was really shitty. I usually can just name games that I really liked in the current year. This time, I had to look up a list of games that came out this year, just to check.
Hopefully next year isn't so bad.
not OP, but I'll dump what I have
1. Bayonetta 2
2. Smash Wii U
3. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
4. Mario Kary 8
5. Dark souls 2
Jesus Christ, I could barely think of any good games this year. I mostly played games on my backlog this year
1. DKC:Tropical Freeze
2. Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U
3. Bravely Deafault
Nothing else, maybe Master Chief Collection, but those are just remakes, so I am not sure if they count.
Maybe 4. Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. I haven't played much this year.
> That alone should makes it worth something more than Gone Homo.
People called out on Gone Homo not being a game too, people on youtube, various video game sites, and forums. Some game reviewers also shat on it for not being a game.
While The Last of Us was praised everywhere despite being an OK game.
The Last of Us is much more overrated most of its flaws were ignored for the "GREAT" story.
It's almost 8/10 to me, but even giving it a 10, which it does not deserve at all, hell how can anyone say that it's not overrated when it's praised as the second coming of christ.
"Citizen Kane of Gaming" It wasn't even the best game of the past 2 years, let alone 5 or 7...
I don't have a WiiU, but my friend does. I played MK8 at his house, and it was fun as hell. So I put it on my list.
I haven't played Bayo 2, or Tropical Freeze yet, but I really want to. It won't be until next year, when I get a WiiU for myself.
2. South Park
3. Shovel Knight
>all these people not voting for ground zeroes
>I haven't played Bayo 2, or Tropical Freeze yet, but I really want to. It won't be until next year, when I get a WiiU for myself.
Why vote for games you haven't played yet?
I'm sure you're not the only one doing it though
Smash wii u
Mario Kart 8
SF4 Ultra Omega
Dark Souls 2 DLC
Cmon nigga, there is a 26% votes on Pokemon XY against fucking Gone Home, literally the /v/ poster boy for everything thats wrong with videogame medium and journalism regarding the videogame medium.
26% of the people thought that Pokemon XY was more overrated than Gone Homo, despise Gone Homo only getting 9s and 10s.
Literally 1/4 of that poll is antinintendo shitposting.
>BEST FINAL FANTASY
HAAH FUCKING WAAW
1. pixel puzzles japan
2. donkey kong country tropical freeze
3. smash bros wii u
4. bayo 2
5. sunset overdrive
My votes for this year go to
It was a good Nintendo year.
I love the gc controller and think the 360 is decent but the 360 has the huge ability to have native windows support and many pc ports/games requiring it for a not retarded layout and functionality.
I'm curious how you would even rate the game as a 7/10 if you didn't enjoy the stealth, which was basically the main gameplay mechanic that prevented the game from being a generic third person shooter (with less ammo). I now realize that you've never played it since you offer no points on why it's bad, you just post the same thing that's said in every thread about the game, minus the same obligatory 3-4 bug gifs.
And Im not saying that Pokemon xy was good, or that being against a nintendo game is shitposting. Just saying that its a clear case of anti-nintendo-anything shitposting with no real justification. Blind buttmad. Then add the people that might have real arguments against Nintendo, and you reach like a 50% of people that dont like nintendo here. I dont think we are biased to Nintendo at all.
You can't deny Nintendo fans got the better games this year son.
Have a song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzhOnSFcfQg
If you didn't play TLOU on survivor during a stealth playthrough and rate it above 5/10 then you just have shit taste and are easily entertained. I bet you like modern Nintendo games too.
Don't mind me just posting the GOTY
It's a DAMN shame DKTF won't get much recognition because it came out earlier in the year, and award shows seem to only remember the last 3-6 months of the year.
>the partner litterally pushes the enemy and nothing happens
>What does that have to do with anything?
Oh wow, this thread.
At least you guys dont hide it anymore.
>stealth up behind them and incapacitate them
Sounds like Thief 1/2 to me, but with blackjack. (T1/T2 are some of my favorite games, but they're good because of adventure/exploration elements)
Sounds like MGS to me.
SC can get away with it because it had much better stealth mechanics than the other games you listed.
More like remembering a few weeks week.
>Far Cry 4
>winning video game awards
Absolutely disgusting and pathetic.
Shitposting isn't exclusive to Sony though.
Those threads are almost made from the same tripfags trying to incite console wars. Same happens with Nintendo and Mustards.
I've also gotten banned multiple times for saying the Vita "no games" before.
Also, mods are being more laid backs with the ban recently.
>actually participating in this rigged shit
OP doesn't give a fuck for what you vote for, he'll change the votes to what he wants.
Happened with MGS as well.
>all those major review sites and the VGX hosts gave it 10s and GOTY just to spite /v/
>Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
>Dark Souls II
>Smash 4 for Wii U
I think those are the only games I've played released this year that I would consider good. I mostly play older games nowadays.
1. Bayonetta 2
3. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
4. South Park: Stick of Truth
5. Shovel Knight
it's got 2015 in the title, stupid
what, now you're going to tell me Madden 11 came out in 2010?
That fucking soundtrack.
1) Legend of Grimrock 2
2) Mario Kart 8
3) Bayonetta 2
I never played the first Grimrock game. How is it compared to something like Dark Spire, EO4, or SMT: Strange Journey?
So instead of calling /v/ Nintendogaf or whatever shit you want to call it can you actually prove why this place is taken over by nintendo at all? This legitimately pisses me off, can't you fuckers realize that the PS4 is a borderline good console? Its not a perfect fucking console like you think, and neither is the fucking Wii U. I see shill threads for PS4 all the time because from a perspective of all consoles that's all Sony is trying to get nowadays. Can't you just god damn realize that the Wii U is the better console?
Without any argument it has:
1, More exclusives that are actually worthwhile
>inb4 hurr durr mario clones
2, Nintendo are the only ones who don't try to be like any other of the fuckers out there, they don't say at all that their console is better than the other consoles.
3rd and last, Ninendo never fucking spouts out shit for their games like "Oh it'll be in full 1080p60fps" They're actually honest about what their games are and will be.
Yes I realize I just probably fucking took the bait
Yes I am mad, I'm fucking furious at shit like this, thank you for your time.
Nice false flaggery sonny. I dig the WiiU too, but if you're getting mad at shitposting on /v/, then maybe you should go do something more productive.
I don't know. I was definitely disappointed but I still really liked it, I haven't even got around to buying the DLC, I might get on that soon.
I think that From are cunts if they charge people the price of a full game to use DX11 features though, I won't be buying that.
Guys, I know that TLoU got a lot of paid reviewers saying it was the best shit ever, but how is it more overrated than Gone Home, which is hardly a game and got several high scores?
>Can't even think of 5 games
I'll just say Bayo
Also since I'm seeing it so much and I have no fucking clue why, I want to condense my last 4 votes into a negative vote for Mario Kart 8
holy fuck that game was awful, why do people even like it?
>best mario kart to date
>first HD mario kart
>new track physics going upside down and shit
>some of the best new tracks ever with that snowy mountain one and sunshine airport
It's a mystery, I guess.
1. Smash bros
2. Bayo 2
3. Mario kart 8
4. dark souls 2
5. shovel knight
good year for nintendo i guess? Nothing else that came out really wowed me or at least I havent played them
Except for the fact that most of those people posted games from other consoles on their lists.
Smash IS the game of the year. Especially if we're just talking about on /v/.
All year, every time a character was announced it was all over /v/. Every Nintendo Direct involving Smash blew up /v/. Every picture of the day pretty much had its own thread or multiple depending on how crazy it was. Etc.
Smash is 2014.
>Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
>Mario Kart 8
>Legend of Grimrock 2
Usually I don't put party games on my GotY lists, since they rarely blow everything else out the water. They "just" tend to be solid fun for a long time. But MK8, especially with the DLC, is fucking amazing.
>meleefags are still crying, obviously to the fact that no-one cares
Brawl has all the right details outside the way it plays. The modes, menus, records, and little details like that are great, too bad the core game is shit.
Smash 4 on the other hand suffers from plenty of little oversights in presentation, even if the core game is a bit better.
Neither game is close to the first two when it comes to gameplay.
don't even start, it didn't even surpass SSB64 or Brawl sales
this prove that people saying "SSB4 > Melee" are just a vocal minority on WiiU/3DS trying to act like their top and still blind from the worst smash hype. also the same fucking ign dicksucking when they automatically put 9s and 10s on most 1st party Nintendo games only, especially on /v/eddit.
content's worser than brawls
gameplay still shittier than melee
Japan Time 2.0 was fucking garbage
online is fucking no fun allowed
roster didn't generate giant hype like brawl's and melee
seriously get over it, smash 4 sucked, didn't even pushed units for WiiU (even on BF), and the fags who keep pushing the "the game will save console" meme are already check it off of their chalkboards.
so cod is the best game ever, anon?
sure feels like i'm on old Youtube again
No it fucking doesn't. VGC is unreliable at the best of times. Smash has been out for 1-3 months depending on your region, whereas the other games has been out for many years. Smash 4 was also sold digitally, which VGC doesn't track at all. Smash 4 also had a handheld version out, which is also a first for the series.
And by your logic, Brawl is the best game in the series. Pretty sure that's not the case, wouldn't you say?
So in other words, you're a gargantuan faggot who can't deal with Melee being replaced by another game.
>dodging the question
how about you actually fucking argue, rather than post some bullshit that has nothing to do with it
posting sales numbers doesn't mean shit, just that Nintendo tricked more people into buying brawl then they did Smash 4
>How about you actually argue?
>Have some sales numbers, faggot.
>That doesn't matter because of my arbitrary bullshit reasons. Please give me more reasons so I can tell you it doesn't matter. My ears are completely closed off. Anything popular is shit.
Please leave and never comeback.
thought VGC can mess up most of the time, this doesn't change the fact SSB4 is the lowest selling Smash game out there, especially on the WiiU.
also the roster, this what really pulls people to play smash bros, not just playing another mario party with characters from the 7th/8th gen of Nintendo, no Brawl and 64 were less like Mario Party, either. most people already forgotten about the Wii.
