GOTY The Diversion

Stevivor’s GOTY 2014: Fourth place

We’re in the midst of our overall Top 5 Games of the Year for 2014, now awarding fourth place. And it was a massive tie.

With equal points, we award fourth GOTY to Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Far Cry 4 AND Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is a great current-gen addition to the franchise,” Steve said of Unity. “At times, the franchise seems as if it’s bitten off more than it could chew, but Unity does a great job of evolving the series while really taking a look at what drew players to it in the first place.”

Wolfenstein: The New Order isn’t an innovative, genre defining game, but that’s not a negative,” Leo said of MachineGames’ shooter in his review. “It benefits greatly from simply being what it is: a rock solid, perfectly-paced story-driven FPS. Nothing more, nothing less.”

Finally, here’s what Shane had to say about Far Cry 4: “While Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity fought hard to evolve the franchise… by taking it back to its roots, it’s as if Far Cry 4 did the opposite, realising the publisher had hit pay dirt with Far Cry 3 and not upsetting things with this new release.”

Stay tuned throughout the week for the rest of our GOTY 2014.
