2014 Game of the Year

 

Game Review Radio proudly presents its most prestigious award for 2014. Here is a breakdown of the voting procedure for those of you that are interested. If you don't really care how we got to our conclusion then just skip this part. Its about to get all scientific and stuff. 

We wanted to go about the Game of the Year in the best way possible. We came up with a points system that was based upon the Top Ten Game of the Year for each Editor. We all agreed that this was probably the best way to go about deciding which game was the most deserving of Game of the Year since it took into account all of our likes and dislikes. Bradley Lewis, Justin Penick, Matt Adams, and Daniel Hickey were the four Editors to vote for Game of the Year. The Top Tens were each scored with the #1 game getting 10 points, #2 getting 9 points, and so on. The scores of each ballot were then complied and added together, resulting in the following list: 

We will be releasing the results January 15th and 16th. Half of the Editor's ballots on the first day and the other half on the second.
