Marooners’ Rock Game of the Year Picks 2014

Marooners’ Rock Game of the Year Picks 2014

With 2014 coming to an end we at Marooners’ Rock have gone through a lot of games this year. While some provided a lot of replay value and others were good for a short time we’ve had to sit down together and pick our own personal titles that we think are GOTY (Game of the Year) for each system.  This year we’ve spoken with each other and listed categories for each device we own.

In the end each staff member would list the GOTY’s for each format and then give an overall GOTY out of the choices they’ve made. Some of our staff provided reasons on the ruling of why the game is GOTY to them. While some of our staff don’t own every system you’ll see the choices they make with the systems they do own. Without seeming like I’m babbling, enjoy the lists by each of our writers including myself.
