The Best PS4 And PS3 Games Of 2014, According To PlayStation Gamers

This holiday season, Sony asked the PlayStation community to vote on their favorite games from 2014. Over 400,000 gamers answered the call.

Destiny was voted the best PS4 game of the year. That's no big shock, as it was apparently the best-selling game too. The top four was rounded out by Dragon Age: Inquisition, inFamous Second Son and Far Cry 4. Second Son was the only PS4 exclusive to make this or any of the best-of-2014 lists announced by Sony.

On the PS3 side, Destiny only got the bronze medal. It was edged out by RPGs Dark Souls 2 and South Park: The Stick of Truth. Far Cry 4 managed to sneak onto that list, too. Ubisoft took a lot of flak over troubles with Assassin's Creed Unity and The Crew but they managed to please a lot of people with FC4.

Gamers also voted on their favorite PlayStation Plus freebies. Unsurprisingly, they preferred the big games that Sony gave away rather than the small indies. The free PS3 games from early in the year - BioShock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City and Tomb Raider cracked the top four. Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition, the only PS4 retail game released through PS Plus, rounded out the list. Hopefully we'll see other full-sized PS4 games given away through Plus this year now that the PS4 is over a year old and now boasts a much larger library.

Maybe the least surprising pick by the PlayStation community was their Most Anticipated Game of 2015. They decided that PS4 exclusive Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was the game they're most excited about this year. Considering how widely loved the previous games in the series were, it's natural that there would be a lot of anticipation for Nathan Drake's new-gen debut.
