GameFront’s Favorite Games of E3 2014
In the chaos that was E3 last week, our team checked out as many games as they could. Afterwards, they huddled together to try to determine which games were the best ones they saw all week. To keep things fair, we stipulated a couple of rules.
- Games had to be playable to be nominated. No CGI-only trailers or concept art here.
- At least one of our team had to play the game for it to be nominated.
- We wouldn’t pick a traditional ‘Best of E3′ because we all played different games, making voting nearly impossible.
Those are the rules. Now let’s see who our team chose as their Favorite Games of E3 2014.

Grey Goo is the newest sci-fi real-time strategy game to hit the scene and it’s definitely one to watch out for this fall. A good strategy game allows for multiple styles of play to be viable. Because of that, Grey Goo focuses on returning to the core, fully balancing the three central pillars of RTS play: Economic Management, Base Building, and Strategic Combat. After receiving some hands-on time with the game, it is hard to not see its success. Unlike some other games showcased at E3 2014, I was immediately wrapped up in both Grey Goo’s complexities and differences from other recent RTS games I have played. With StarCraft 2 currently dominating the recent sci-fi RTS scene, Grey Goo will be a welcome addition to the playing field. It’s too soon to say if it will revolutionize the field as its claims appear to suggest, but I look forward to seeing it attempt it all the same.
