Yes folks, it's that time of year and as far as I can tell, this'll be the first GOTY thread dedicated to mobile gaming.
The mobile platform had one hell of year in 2014. From the addicting thrill of the Threes to the innovative interactive fiction of 80 Days and A Sailor's Dream, from Monument Valley's mind-bending artistry to Out There's engaging sci-fi landscapes, to the myriad ports ranging from FTL and Paper's Please to XCOM Enemy Within and Valiant Hearts, there was no shortage of great releases to be had throughout 2014
So...on to the voting!
- You may vote for any mobile game released in 2014, on any mobile platform (IOS, Android, Windows, etc.). Go by the date when the game released on a particular platform (i.e Icebreaker released on IOS in 2013, and on Android in 2014. It would be eligible for voting due to the Android release date).
