    Hi everyone,

    I thought it would be fun to do a mini video game award to help find the best game of summer 2014 (released between 1st June - end of September).

    To take part, all you need to do is reply below with a game you've played that you think is worthy of being considered for the award, at the end of September I will then turn this into a poll and PM you all to let you know when it's up.

    For a list of games, visit: http://uk.ign.com/games/upcoming (thanks mikeyd85!)

    Destiny.

    It's the only game coming out between now and September that's:

    A) Not an EA American sports game (Madden, NHL)
    B) Not a remake / HD version of a game previously released (Metro: Redux, OddWorld New and Tasty)
    C) A AAA multi-format title

    There are a few games that might go down well in this period, like Tales of Xillia 2, but I don't see anything else that'll really compete with Destiny. September and October are where it's at for new games. Some beast titles coming out in Q3! :yep:

    I think before I can answer that I would need a list of games coming out over the summer, summer isn't a time for games, it's a time for films. Games are for Q4 and the run up to xmas.

    As I said, there is barely anything to choose from.

    Yup. Hence why I went for Destiny. It's pretty much a no brainer.

    I'm sure there are plenty of good older games you haven't played yet.

    If you've not played any of the following, they should keep you going:

    Far Cry 3
    The Last of Us
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    Grid Autosport
    Tomb Raider
    Fez
    Skyrim

    Arkham City is awesome as well. Yo might want to look at Oddworld: New & Tasty when it comes out.

    Oh cool, thanks! I've played...

    Far Cry 3
    The Last of Us
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    Tomb Raider
    Skyrim
    (which I agree are all awesome!)

    But not...

    Fez
    Grid Autosport

    Oddworld: New & Tasty sounds great, I've never played an Oddworld but always wanted to - thanks for the heads up.

    Very good!

    I'm enjoying Fez (well, I was until I started playing Deus Ex!). It's quite a unique concept and I really enjoyed it. If racing is your thing at all, Grid Autosport certainly delivers. Much better than Grid 2 was!

    Oddworld N&T is a kinda remake of Abe's Oddysee which was an excellent game! :yep:

    It's guaranteed to be a blockbuster and sell a lot of copies though!

    Destiny closely followed by The Last of Us: Remastered. Destiny only wins because it's a completely new IP.

    But that doesn't mean it will be the best.

    And, you know, actually new and not just "everybody, give us your money again for nothing new!". Destiny would be better even if it were second or third in a series

    Destiny does look very tempting and will most likely be a great game.
    Hyrule Warriors also looks very good in my opinion though, that's releasing sep 19th.

    Can't really think of any other major games that are releasing until autumn or winter.
