Metal Gear Rising had the best soundtrack, bar none.

I liked Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Made me sad, bro.

Honestly, I'd say with the exception of Gameplay, The Last of Us basically sweeps the awards.

I can't think of any specific category for it, but I think Kingdom Hearts 1.5 ReMix deserves some form of praise for finally getting Kingdom Hearts Final Mix to not-Japan.
I have a message from another time...

Hi.
Naughty Dog's Last of Us kicked ass this year. I'd say they win everything but best gameplay and best soundtrack.

The 2014 Game with Most Potential is to hard to pick, since next year will be amazing. Watch Dogs, MGS 5, Destiny, Dark Souls 2, Infamous: Second Son, Witcher 3, Dying Light, Murdered: Soul Suspect, The Order: 1886, Drakengard 3, Everquest Next, Broken Age, Pillars of Eternity, a shit load of other awesome Kickstarter funded games (even if some of them don't do great, at least a few certainly will), all those Telltale titles/episodes, and I'm probably missing a hundred other awesome games.

Forgot to add in Smash Bros for my most highly anticipated games. Oh, and that Project X game by Monolith. tongue

Also, while I think Super Mario 3D World wins for best gameplay, The Last of Us does sweep most of the other awards imo.

The booziest!
For the Best Voice Acting part, I can vouch for the Narrator in The Stanley Parable as a possible nominee. For anything else, I'm not quite sure what to say since I don't really have a complete idea.

Just feelin' like a casual chat? My PM box is ALWAYS open!
I would be interested in X if they got rid of the giant mechs. That's really unappealing.

Best gameplay: Dragon's Crown

Best Visuals: Dragon's Crown

Best Soundtrack: AVGN Adventures

More to come when I decide on them.
[up][up]Yep. Mech games are ugly and cheesy and unfun. To me anyway.

Teh gamer who is limited to Vita/3DS minus watching LP's of everything else so I'm kinda skewed.

Best Overall Game: Fire Emblem Awakening.

Best Story and Writing Bioshock Infinite (An LP nod because...story wasn't the highlight for many of the games I played through)

Best Gameplay Tearaway

Best Visuals (Aesthetics and Graphics) Dragon's Crown (Vita)

Best Soundtrack Shin Megami Tensei IV

Best Voice Acting The Last of Us

2014 Game with Most Potential Nothing much has been announced for the 3DS/Vita...so...ugh. I guess Smash Bros out of necessity.

Hi.
Hm. Would anyone here like a general "2014 in Gaming" thread? Bringing up and comparing all sorts of games coming out that year seems like it would make for a good thread.
[Insert seemingly profound or amusing phrase here.]
Best Overall Game: Saint's Row IV

Best Story and Writing: Saint's Row IV

Best Gameplay: Saint's Row IV

Best Visuals (Aesthetics and Graphics): Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

Best Soundtrack: Saint's Row IV

Best Voice Acting: Saint's Row IV

2014 Game with Most Potential: Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

I'm starting to see a pattern here but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Anyway, I dunno if I just liked SR 4 so much or everything else was extremely underwhelming this year but there it is.

Since I'm too lazy to make a list and choose a game for each category, I'll just say I have a tie between The Last of Us and Metal Gear Rising for best overall game.

It's worth mentioning that I've played a total of... 4 games released this year, one of which isn't a possible contender for me at all, and out of those I'd say Metal Gear Rising would be in two of those categories (soundtrack and possibly gameplay), with The Last of Us being in the rest. Do tha math.

As for 2014 game with the most potential, Dark Souls 2.
