Best Ensemble Cast of 2014: Awarded to the game whose characters form the best team outside of combat.

Winner: Dragon Age: Inquisition
Writeup by Dave Yeager
We tend to be pretty excited in an RPG when we get just one or two really memorable characters. It is a testament to Inquisition's excellent writing that we have not just one or two, but over a dozen truly unique and memorable characters. The hardest part of choosing a party in Dragon Age: Inquisition often comes down to which people you want to spend more time with just so you can hear little snippets of dialogue between them, strategic necessities be damned! Add to that a diverse group of war room advisers, tremendous cameos from favorites featured in previous games in the series, and a villain you'll love to hate, and you've got a host of characters that could have translated well to books or the silver screen. How fortunate for us gamers that these writers and voice actors chose our medium to showcase their skills.

Runner-up: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth
Runner-up: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth
Writeup by John Tucker
We love the casts of Persona 3 and 4, as evidenced by the fact that Persona 3's Mitsuru made our list of the best female RPG characters and Persona 4's Yu and Chie made the list of our favorite RPG couples. So to have them together in Persona Q is a dream come true. They don't get the development this time around that they received in their original games (and really, how could they?), but they're still an amazing group of characters, and it's a ton of fun to interact with them again.
