GOTY | Number 6 — Pokémon X/Y
One of the series that has stuck to its guns and not made major changes to its visual design for a long time is the Pokémon series. This year with the release of Pokémon X/Y, Nintendo surprised us all and finally released a game with fully 3D battles. If that weren’t enough, there were tons of improvements to minuscule things in the series that got addressed in this release.
The result of all these various changes are these new games that look to be ready to usher in a whole new era of the franchise. Not to mention the fact that the game itself is quite fun and does the best job of keeping your journey through the new region interesting throughout your entire adventure. Add to that, the new Mega Evolutions giving new forms to some of our favorite older Pokémon and you’ve got a game that definitely deserves the number 6 spot on my top 10 list this year.
