2014 Selection

Usually, at the end of the year, I’ll put together a list of my favourite smaller games that I’ve got around to playing on whatever website I’m working for. But this year is slightly different as I’m not able to publish my personal list of games (although it’s never entirely personal) on a single publication. So this blog of mine is acting as a sufficient stand-in this time around.

It’s a large list, as it always is, and I haven’t written anything about any of the games, i.e. why I picked it as one of my favourites of 2014. But I have split the list into two. The first lot are my favourite games, while the ones below the threshold are ones I’ve also enjoyed and think deserve a shout out (there’s many more of those!).

Obviously, if you know my taste at all, the games below tend to be strange and short for the most part. There are some skeleton games — of course there are — a number of first-person exploration games, and quite a few idiosyncratic 2D adventures, and some I couldn’t even label. Of course, there are plenty other games that I could mention (maybe even some I’ve forgotten) but I have to draw the line somewhere…

Anyway, that’s it, the list is below. Knock yourself out!
