The 10 best PC games of 2014

The best of the best

2014 is over, and that means for one short moment before we all get hyped about the wealth of releases in the new year (Pillars of Eternity, The Witcher 3, Batman: Arkham Knight, et cetera) it's time for us to look back on the past year. Which games stood out? Which games have we already added to our mental canon?

The rules: All 10 games had to be fully released in 2014, meaning no Early Access games or expansions in the official list. All games had to be released on PC. Also, this list is in no particular order—there's "Tied for Second Place" and then there's "Winner," and that's it.
