NHL 14
2013 was a surprisingly good year for sports games with a promising next-gen Madden debut, one of the best FIFA titles yet and the hyper-realistic NBA 2K14 all seeing release. Perhaps none were as enjoyable as NHL 14, however. Unfortunately, hockey isn’t exactly the most popular sport in North America, so it wasn’t the most played game, but those who did were treated to not only one of the best games of hockey ever made, but also a fine throwback to the 16-bit days of the game. NHL 94 Anniversary Mode, although perhaps not as robust as it could have been, gives the game staying power and makes it a game you can pop out when the non-initiated are around.
