2014 Game of the Year Awards - The Winners - ArticleJoseph Trotter , posted on 01 February 2015 / 5,759 Views
At least one of you may remember this article from last year, and in this same space I wrote about how bloody awful 2013 had been, but at least we had pictures of rabbits.

Here are all the winners of our Game of the Year Awards 2014 handily arranged in a list format.
Best Playstation 3 Game
Dark Souls II
