Pick The Sleeper Hit Of 2014
As you know, there are a lot of hugely anticipated games scheduled for 2014.
But which title is currently flying under the radar that you anticipate will hit big? Which one will surprise critics and avid gamers alike? Which is the one that, when you look back at the year, you'll say: "That came out of nowhere and it was just totally awesome."
The hard part about making such a selection is that very often, such games aren't heavily promoted. They really do come out of nowhere. They're a downloadable title that nobody saw coming, or a game from a relatively unknown studio that just took the gaming world by storm. 2013's Metro: Last Light is a good example of a game that, though it did have some promotion behind it, basically stole the hearts of many without much fanfare. It's also fun when everyone expects a game to blow and yet, wonder of wonders, it steps up and delivers the goods.
I'd like to say something like Thief but that's too high-profile. A pure stealth game will never sell like a shooter, but the name itself is iconic and it's receiving plenty of attention. Do you have any great ideas for games to look out for? Projects that are just getting into the headlines now, but aren't really expected to garner widespread critical acclaim?
