Which writer do you agree with the most or hate the least?

With so much to organize and help put together, I didn't get a chance to do my own personal Game of the Year list for 2014. It's probably for the best, as picking favorites games is very difficult for me. It's like picking favorite people. I like a lot of people, and they are all so different, but all so important to me. I'd have an easier time picking a favorite finger. I'd probably go for the left pinky, as that's the one with the coolest freckle. 

Still, I can safely guess that I spent more time in 2014 playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf, 1001 Spikes (Wii U), Pokemon Puzzle Challenge (3DS VC), Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (Wii U VC), Advance Wars (Wii U VC) Rouge Legacy (PS3), Skullgirls: Encore (PS3), Rhythm Heaven Fever (Wii), Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS (Smash Run mode), Bayonetta 2 (Wii U), Luftrausers (PS3) and the God damn Maverick Bird than just about anything else. I didn't have to play any of them, for work or otherwise. In fact, I probably shouldn't have played them at all, as I always have time sensitive work breathing down my neck. Yet these games kept pulling me back, whether I liked it or not. I think it's because they all utilize a rigid structure to house a huge amount of potential variables and surprises. That seems to be the best way to keep me fascinated these days.
