5 Best Games Of 2014 So Far
This weekend I talked about some of the big disappointments from the first half of 2014. It's easy to get cynical after seeing that many highly anticipated games fail to live up to expectations. So much potential was wasted with those titles.
There were a several big games that did deliver on their promises, though. As usual, there were a few surprises too. Here's a list of some of the best games that 2014 has brought us so far.
South Park: Stick of TruthA good role-playing game doesn't need to be 40 hours long. South Park: The Stick of Truth is Exhibit A.
I had mixed feelings on the game when I first played it. The combat felt a little too basic at times. The analog stick controls for farts were aggravating. The side quests were the standard assortment of fetch and kill tasks.
Still, those shortcomings don't erase the fact that Stick of Truth is one of the funniest games ever made. Playing Stick is like watching a 10-hour episode of the TV show. It's crammed with old and new references to the show but still manages to be funny even if you don't catch them all. I wish all licensed games were this successful.
