As 2014 came to a close all eyes – and fingers – were pointing to their respective console-of-choice for last minute bragging rights. Be they fans of Sony’s PlayStation and Vitas, Microsoft Xboxes, or any of Nintendo’s Wii or 3DS iterations, there was plenty to go around. And, boy oh boy, did they get around in 2014.
