Google has released its statistics on the biggest search trends of 2014, and the video game category in particular reveals some very interesting (and occasionally surprising) insights into what the community was buzzing about this year.
2014 was a big year in video games for me, due in large part to the fact that for the first time in my life, I have a current-gen console. This coupled with a long overdue PC upgrade meant that I was eager to fit in as much gaming time as I physically could.
The world of game development is exceptionally cutthroat. While most games come and go with varying amounts of pomp and circumstance, some titles get big announcements but then never make it off the drawing board. These games are loosely organized under the term "vaporware," which, in layman’s terms, means that they are floating around in developmental hell, not officially cancelled but not about to see the light of day anytime soon.
Developers are often the biggest fans out there. After all, they decided they wanted to spend an entire day making games, before going home and playing even more of them. So to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original PlayStation console, Japanese gaming magazine Degeki PlayStation polled 107 game devs on what their most memorable game from the past two decades has been.

Dragon Age: Inquisition has been out for a few weeks now, and as is to be expected from huge RPGs, there were plenty of bugs.

The inaugural Game Awards were held last night in Las Vegas, and thankfully, Spike TV was not in any way involved. On the downside, the show was around 18 hours long, so if you're like me, you probably didn't watch the entire thing all the way through. All of the trailers have made their way online though, so if you missed any, we have them posted below in alphabetical order.
It's December 5, 2014 and, (for all you history nerds out there), that means it's officially been 81 years since Prohibition ended in the United States. To ring in such a special occasion, we decided to take a look at 5 famous video games that were (and in some cases still are) banned by other countries.
More and more, indie games are beginning to steal the spotlight away from the Call of Duty's and Assassin's Creed's of the world. Games like Five Nights at Freddy's and Towerfall were as talked about as any AAA release this year, and rightly so. However, if that's all you played in 2014 from the indie side of things, you missed out on some fantastic new releases.
The day of reckoning is almost upon us! Black Friday is rapidly approaching and as we prepare to gather with our families on Thursday to give thanks for the stuff we have, it doesn’t hurt to get a jump on deals so we can follow that gratitude with killing other humans so we can have more stuff.
