All good things must come to an end, and so it is that we approach the end of 2014 — a year of ups and downs, lefts and rights, and more importantly, loads and loads of games.
As is tradition, we’re putting together a little survey for games.on.net’s beautiful readers to share with us which games they think were the best (and the worst!) this year. And just for taking part, you could win yourself a brand new PS4!

At this year’s PAX Australia, we (along with thousands and thousands of others) got to sit down for a few rounds of Battlecry — I’m sorry, Bethesda, but I’m not going to spell it BATTLECRY – the new F2P MOBA-thing that Bethesda are hoping to use to crack open the lucrative freemium market so currently dominated by games like League of Legends.

Last week we asked you a simple question: what was your fondest gaming memory? 130+ of you responded, and reading through all of your great entries made me pretty nostalgic for my childhood Christmases, I don’t mind telling you. Also, it seems many of us most fondly remember the time we got a Nintendo 64 for Christmas — well, me too my friends, me too. Ripping the paper of that thing and getting stuck into it for hours. Diddy Kong Racing was our first game — which is still great, by the way, especially the soundtrack — and I’ll always remember my brother tilting the controller as he steered, his tongue sticking out of his mouth as if he could somehow guide the karts around. Great times.
Anyway, where was I? We had plenty of great entries, but the one that really stuck out for us was this one, also in the spirit of brotherly love and affection. Take a look.

Ahead of this year’s PAX Australia show, we had the chance to sit down with BioWare’s Mike Laidlaw, creative director on Dragon Age: Inquisition. We cornered him in a room full of stuffed animal heads (yes, really) and asked him all sorts of ridiculous questions.
