Now that E3 2016 is over, we can all take a deep breath and take the time to analyze the enthralling goodness that enraptured our captivation for the past week. While I felt the overall showcase was rather underwhelming in comparison to last year’s E3, there were specific highlights that acted as this year’s saving grace and Sony in particular definitely brought the momentum back as they undoubtedly knocked it out of the park with their press conference. Aside from the excellent re-imagining of the Resident Evil series with Resident Evil VII, the invigorating multiplayer showcase of Battlefield 1, the intriguing permutations of Detroit: Become Human, the melancholic tranquility of The Last Guardian, and the visceral, albeit familiar, gameplay of Gears of War 4, these next five games were my personal favourite showcases at this year’s E3.
2014 was a strange year for games. 2014 was supposed to be the year that would highlight the true power of the next generation, however most of 2014’s anticipated titles were delayed to the following year. Not only this, but the year was also filled with games that weren’t playable day one and riddled with post-launch patch support. And personally, there were a few anticipated games that just didn’t live up to my expectations. But fear not, all is not lost, for there were still some fantastic releases this year that certainly made up for 2014’s mishaps. If you don’t see one of your 2014 favourites on this list, it can mean one of two things: I either didn’t get the opportunity to play the game or I just didn’t enjoy it as much as you did. So here are my top 10 games of 2014.
