The Dice Tower announced their 2014 award nominees in 13 different categories. Nominees are made based upon the input of dozens of people - each voting on games they feel should make it into a category. Top vote in each category makes the cut. There's no bias, no weight - it's a panel made up of industry fans and experts all with an equal say. We're proud of this list as we feel it's a woderful representation of the best in games for 2014.
