A lot of crap hit the fan in 2014 and I'm not just talking about the Master Chief Collection. There were some culture wars and some collapsing currencies, but to paraphrase Tori Amos, it was still a pretty good year. We at The Escapist like to shine light on the artwork that lets use get through the bullshit: the movies that amaze, the comic books that delight, or the science that astonishes, and yes, the games that keep us playing until the wee hours of the night.

A few weeks ago we published the nominees for the expanded Escapist Awards of 2014. The aim of these Awards is to commemorate works from each of our five channels, celebrating that which was truly great this year. Today, we announce the winners in each of the categories below.
