Midlife Gamer Community Awards 2014 – The Recap

January 1st, 2015 by

It was the year that promised so much but I think we can all agree that it has been nothing short of a rollercoaster ride this year as we straddle generations. We have have hype train journeys that have crashed and burned. Games with little or no fanfare blow us away and a DDOS attack which resulted in a minimum amount of gameplay over the Christmas period for a lot of us.

Over 1000 votes were cast, over 100 games received votes for the 2014 rundown, and over 20 games were acknowledged as Most Anticipated for the next 12 months.

With a new generation of gaming we decided to have a new generation of awards and created a multitude of new award catergories this year. In order to make room for these new awards, we trimmed down our normal Top 10 to a Top 5.

So sit down, kick back and relax and enjoy the Midlife Gamer Community Awards 2014 Recap

You can consider me personally thrilled that Destiny took this award. No other game this generation, or even in the previous generation, has got its hooks into me quite in the way Destiny has.
