2014 Video Game Power Rankings: June
May brought us some big titles but only Mario Kart drove to the the top of the board, and with June being a slow month for new releases, I don’t see July’s rankings being all that different. Without further ado, here are our Power Rankings for June.
9t. Quiz-Up (9 points, no change) How much longer can a mobile game hold on to this list?
9t. Galactic Civilizations III (9 points, no change) Everyone build a ship, because the full release is coming soon.
9t. Assassin’s Creed: Unity (9 points, new entry) Playable women or not, Unity is one the guys here are going to keep watching.
8. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls (10 points, no change) As the console release gets closer, so does our anticipation. 7. Alien: Isolation (12 points, no change) Word out of E3 was extremely positive, now hopefully it doesn’t miss its release window and slip out of 2014 like everything else.
6. Wolfenstein: The New Order (12 points, new entry) Believe us, we are as surprised as you that the new Wolfenstein game turned out great.
5. Civilization: Beyond Earth (14 points, +2) Could this be the game that gets Chris to jump in to Civ head first?
4. South Park: The Stick of Truth (17 points, +1 position change) After a long, long drought, Obsidian finally hit one out of the park.
3. Mario Kart (17 points, +6, one first place vote) The best Mario Kart in years is also one of the best games of the year.
2. Destiny (24 points, no change) That wizard came from the moon.
1. Titanfall (42 points, no change, four first place votes) Titanfall continues to dominate this list, and much of our staff’s free time on Tuesday nights. (We have free time?- editor)
On the Bubble Watch Dogs, Lord of the Rings: Shadow of Mordor
