The oprainfall Awards - Readers' Game of the Year 2014

Ladies, gentlemen and other, welcome to the Preliminary Vote for the 2014 Readers’ Game of the Year. The 166 games that are listed below were voted on by you, the readers of oprainfall, during the course of the year through the Game of the Month polls. So, for those of you that took part in the Game of the Month polls, we thank you for helping us out.

And if you didn’t take part in it and don’t see that one game you would’ve voted for… we thank you for showing up here, anyways.

A few hours ago, we had completed polling for Game of the Month – December 2014, as well as polls for March and April (because we didn’t really have this idea until late May, and wasn’t fully realized until October). We will be revealing the results from that soon in a different article.

But today is about Game of the Year. Today through January 22nd, we will be holding a preliminary vote that will determine the Top 10 games for this past year. After that, we will hold a final vote that will determine which is your Game of the Year.

For this round of voting, you may select as many as 10 games. No games will be added or subtracted so, unlike Game of the Month — which can sometimes miss a game or two upon opening the poll — feel free to vote as soon as possible.

You have two weeks to determine your Top 10 Games of 2014. Happy voting!
