Vote for the best game of 2014

Each year you can vote for the best Amiga game of the previous twelve months. Now it's time for the Amiga Games Award 2014!

To vote for the best AmigaOS 68k, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, or AROS games, you can rate them at this page : http://obligement.free.fr/hitparade/award2014.php

There will be no "global" winner, but a winner by systems (AmigaOS 68k, AmigaOS 4.x, MorphOS and AROS).

The final results will be published Saturday, February 7, 2015.

As much as I'd like to vote for Centron 3D, both Oids and Love Dungeon are a hair's breadth better

Smurf Rescue has been released this year. That is 2015.

Maybe someone could give a hint on what games have been released last year.
List might be very short

Smurf Rescue was actually released on 31st December.

Wonder why Moebius Goatlizard DX isn't on the list? (Centron 3D does actually exist for the avoidance of doubt) And a game called SS VoidBlast on Aminet isn't there either.

It would be good if everything eligible was on the list rather than missing anything out. Likewise actually voting for games on merit rather than out of sympathy as with Smurf Rescue (no disrespect to Hipoonios intended there incidentally) would probably be a good idea.

I'd probably vote "Did it come from the desert?" If mods count (eg the Spear of Destiny mods that are both listed under 68k) then it certainly should be on the list.

(Edit: Agreed with Graham Humphrey re: Moebius Goatlizard DX, it's a fantastic game)

Makes no sense to me, why list mission packs for Spear of Destiny but not the port itself. Are people meant to be voting on how much they like the mission pack or on what they think of the port that runs it?

Very confused

Moebius Goatlizard 1.0 was published in 2013 and was in the 2013 competition. An update 1.1 was published in 2014, so it can't enter the 2014's competition.

You're right, it's a good idea but for the moment, I prefer a "short list" with only "interesting games" (without beta versions, proof of concept games, too short games, etc). If you look at Aminet, you can find lots of the mind games created by Charles Jacob (much respect to him), but are they good enough to enter the competition? Same for VoidBlast, too low quality for me. But next year, perhaps I will add more/all games.

Earok: Did it come from the desert? has been added (it was on the pre-list but I forgot to add it, sorry)

spud: all 2014 can enter the competition but no beta versions, demos, and games already listed in a previous year. I also deleted "too low quality games". It's subjective but it may change next year.
