As the title indicates, this award is to recognize the best modern console video game in 2014. And there are so many good ones to choose from this year.

Each members may nominate one (1) game released in 2014 for any console. After voting concludes, we will put it to a poll amongst the Top 3 nominees!

1/2/15 UPDATE: Runoff time! Based upon the voting, it has been determined to make this a two horse race. Please cast your vote in the above poll. We will keep the poll open until 11:59PM on January 15, 2015. So make voting one of the first things you do in 2015 :D

SSB will definitely have its supporters, BUT for me the choice is clear:

MARIO KART 8

It is a glorious edition to this storied franchise (and my personal favorite). Ever since it's arrival in May, my Wii U has been getting like 98.5% of my console gaming time. Mario Kart 8 is just so darn FUN. IMHO, it has literally not only saved the Wii U, but made it extremely relevant. And that was before DLC #1, which was a true gift from the Big N.

Of course, I would be remiss not to mention my other 2 favorite GoTY, those being Bayonetta 1 and 2. I never had a chance to play the original release, but B1 is a fantastic ride from start to finish (and this from a mostly retro gamer). Bayonetta 2 is visually even more arresting, and the throttled down difficulty level certainly makes it a more enjoyable experience, one that I look forward to completing.
