The 25 best video games of 2014

 Titanfall – the ridiculously intense sci-fi shooter – has stomped into our list at number 25 Photograph
Here we go again. From blockbuster mainstream hits to lesser-known indie gems, these are the 25 games that have kept our reviewers glued to their gigantic HD televisions this year. 

As ever, it’s a highly subjective list, based on the titles we genuinely played and played, rather than the critical hits we thought we really ought to consider. Apart from that, the rules were simple: every title in the list had to be released for the first time in 2014 (so no remasters, repackages or conversions of early titles), and everything had to be on console or PC, as we’re handling smartphone and tablet favourites in another list.
