Gameitall.com’s Game of the Year 2014 Nominees

gia-360p

 

 

It’s that time of the year again where we deliver our Game of the Year picks.

The Year end is always a hectic time here at Gameitall between out editors, as we all have our own ideas on what should be game of the year and whether we agree with the industry official award Show or not. This year we went through our lists, checked it twice, got into a few fistfights about the results and are ready to deliver our nominees.

This year we have some interesting nominees, and while you can expect the winners to be announced before the year’s end, we would like to know from you. Let us know what you would select for game of the year, are we missing any body from the list that should be on here or if we’re a bunch of idiots.
