The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2014!



  • @ringedwithtile I liked the powers, it really changed it up compared to previous games. Would love Sucker Punch to make a Flash game because of how they did Super Speed in the game.



  • Infamous Second Son is a fun game, that felt like first truly next-gen. I was (and I still am) super impressed by instant loading after fast travel.



  • Second Son was my first PS4 game, and it looked and felt really good to start this era in Seattle like that. I liked the powers and the city a lot, just would've wished that the story and things in general would've evolved into something truly big and closer to the first two games. Man, I miss Cole...



  • Absolutely love this game, all the powers felt quite unique and different from each other, and it was such a beautiful game too. Running around the nighttime city with neon powers is as fun as it is visually wonderful. It's as good (or better, depending on the mood) as Infamous 2 in my book, despite it's lacking of content and emotional impact compared to said game.



  • I didn't finish Second Son, the game just got too repetitive. I also couldn't stand the main character, such a cocky douche. I do want to finish it though, it's just going to be a bit harder to motivate myself to do so now as I lost an awful lot of save files last month.



  • Infamous Second Son seemed to be, at the time of launch, one of the three PS4 games worth playing. And of those, this was the one that seemed to have the best story and biggest world. However, this WAS a launch game, so there was 1.) Nothing really to compete with it and 2.) Most launch games (but not all) are not really all that great. As for Infamous specifically, this seemed like a complete shift from the previous two installments, and one that didn't appeal to me.

    Infamous SS wasn't a launch title



  • @sheria Really?...........Feels like it only being released but five months after the fact. In technicality you are right. Thank you for the correction.



  • Yeah, it was pretty close. Resogun was my favourite of the launch titles :)



  • I'm probably going against the norm here, but I absolutely enjoyed Dragon Age: Inquisition. I'm now a diehard Dragon Age fan, and this was the first open-world RPG I've ever played (I finished it before I played Witcher 3!). yeah, much of the open-world stuff is filler, and they could've paced each world better, but I enjoyed the story and gameplay. I'm hyped for Dragon Age 4!



  • Woah. I have no malice towards this game, I thought it was fun, but felt like a pretty big step down from inFamous 2. Surprised it made our list. Still a decent game and if I had a PS4 at launch I would have played it sooner than I did.



  • Mario Kart 8 is the best game in the series. Kind of a bummer that they ruined the perfect item balance of the original in the re-release on Switch.



  • Transistor

  • Transistor is probably my least favorite game by Supergiant, but it is still damn good. Maybe the best soundtrack of 2014.



  • For me, Transistor has everything going for it BUT gameplay. I love the art style, I dig the setting, the concept is really cool, and it's about as unique of a game you'll find. But the gameplay style just is not the kind I'm a fan of. Which is a bummer, because I really want to give this game a shot. I'm bummed it's not in the top 10.



  • Transistor has been on my radar forever, it looks like everything I love, the setting, art style and gameplay are all right up my alley, but for some reason never brought myself to play it. I even have it on PS+, so no excuse really, just gotta sit down one day and get it done!



  • I didn't vote for it, but I really enjoyed Transistor. I didn't get the story, but the game itself was very cool, so I still have good memories about it.



  • First of all, Transistor is a top 10 soundtrack of all time for me. Also, it has one of the best, if not THE best dynamic themes for the Ps4. The game was fun, and allowed you to either cheese (if you wanted) or to really experiment with interesting combinations of attacks. Cemented my love of Supergiant as a creative studio.

  • I didn't care for this one. It looks nice, but I thought the gameplay was pretty boring and I couldn't stand sword-man whispering all the time. Stop dude, I'm trying thwack some robots.



  • Since submitting my votes I have played through Transistor. It didn’t blow me away, but may have scraped an honourable mention spot.

    I enjoyed the combat system and the different decisions made in loadout. But I would have loved slightly more story. It was there, and it was alright, but it didn’t drive me forwards at any point.
