Best Story of 2014: Awarded to the game with the best story elements. This includes dialogue as well as plot.
In a world with cinematic FMV, it's telling that the best story award this year falls to a game that relies almost entirely upon text and still images to tell its story. Fact of the matter is, the mystery of Danganronpa and Hope's Peak Academy is not only a gripping one, its ending is truly shocking. Seeing your classmates be cut down time and again as you eke closer to the answer is heartwrenching, and the betrayals sting like no other.
Good luck escaping.
Enslaved elves. Magic that brings the risk of madness. A peace talk interrupted by a hole being torn in the sky through which pour creatures of nightmare. Thedas may not be such a great place to live, but what a place to visit. While Dragon Age II narrowed the scope of its narrative, the third and best entry in the series pulls that scope way back to encompass the entire map of Thedas — at times, quite literally, as you stand over it in the War Room. Full of memorable moments and characters, Inquisition represents a return to epic form for BioWare to the delight of their fans.
