The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2014!



  • Nekomaru Nidai FTW! SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!



  • Its a very good game, but the reason i like danganronpa 1 more is because i figured it out at the beginning of 2, and wasn't nearly as surprised by the end as i was with danganronpa 1. I wonder if I'm a genius, or if everyone else found out right at the beginning as well.



  • @sunpraiser The ending of Danganronpa 2 was a total surprise for me.

    You're just the Ultimate Predictor ^^

    While I consider all of the Dangan games pretty close to one another, I prefered the first myself. I just felt it was the tighter and better crafted of those two, and ultimately a better 'who done it'.



  • I can't say anything more about Danganronpa than I have from the earlier entry. But I find it a little weird two games from the same franchise came out in the same year.



  • Yeeesh Mordor is one of my least favourite games of all time. Beyond surprised it made it into the top 10 BEST.

    It's really down to them being ports and late localisations. THH originally released in 2010, while 2 then came out in 2012. Both were PSP games.



  • The Middle-Earth games have really made me ask questions of myself as to what makes me enjoy a game.

    I have real problems with Shadow of Mordor: the story, boss fights, and the way it takes such liberties with the world Tolkien created and the themes he chose to focus on in his writings. But at the same time, there's just something so special for me about being in the world of Middle Earth, and any game that allows me to do that I can't help but really liking. Shadow of Mordor was also the first PlayStation game I'd played since the PS2 (missed the PS3 completely!), and I think the nemesis system is something fresh and innovative. Out of what I've played so far, Shadow of Mordor is still my favourite 2014 game.

    But yeah, I guess I'm finding out that for me, even if the story or gameplay has flaws, the world of a game has a significant effect on how I "rank" games. Self-discovery is good! :)



  • I still haven't played Danganronpa 2. Who knows, maybe it would have made my list instead of the first one (or another game).

    I had forgotten that Shadow of mordor came out 2014. I really enjoyed it even though I never actually got around to finishing it



  • Nice! I finally got on the list!~ What a good series. Love me those lovely characters and twists.



  • Fun fact. I grew to HATE playing Danganronpa 2 until about 3/4ths of the way through the game. I don't know if it was because I played it back to back with THH or if it was something else but I got very very annoyed with 2. I connected with the characters way less and found the trials more frustrating (they took twice as long as the first game) BUT the ending made it all worth it. I loved the game by the time I was done. It's probably overall the superior game but I had a more enjoyable experience with the first one, which is why it placed higher on my list.



  • Hopefully I will be starting Danganronpa soon

  • Never played it. lol



  • And Dark Souls II makes its appearance! I surprised it didn't place in the top five. It's well established I'm not into Souls/Borne, therefore I cannot comment on the game personally. The only funny anecdote I have is I have a friend who loves the series prefers DS II over III when I've seen consensus opinion that III is superior because Miyazaki wasn't the director for II. I forget the reasons as to why he enjoys II more, but from an outsider's view, I find that funny considering I have no opinion on the matter.



  • Wooooowwwwwww! You guys are KILLING me. Dark Souls II was one of the most disappointing sequels I've ever played. Beat it again last year because I thought I was possibly too harsh on it, but NOPE! I ended up disliking it waaaaaaay more than I originally did.



  • @dipset More disappointing than Devil May Cry 2?



  • @dipset I feel the same way. I LOVED the first game, and i while i enjoyed DS2, it's doesn't stand a chance against it's predecessor. The world design feels way less interesting for me, both in how it looks and how it plays out. It just feels more like a bunch of videogame levels than an actual messed-up world like in DS1, and it's doesn't feel as rewarding to explore. The bosses are boring and way too easy. I beat the early 4 bosses in 1 or 2 tries, and i can't say i'm good at the game. I stopped playing shortly after meeting the Ruin Sentinels, that boss just felt way too cheap and stupid for me. The regular enemies aren't that interesting too.

    I lost all interest in playing the Dark Souls games after this, mainly because this game made me lost interest in the world of Dark Souls. Dark Souls III looks like a better game from what i have seen, but i don't really want to play it. I already played Dark Souls 1 and loved it anyway, so i don't feel the need to play more.



  • Dark Souls 2 is better than Bloodborne.

    Yeah I said it.
