Sign it, seal it, and stick our stamp of approval on it: Game of the Year is finally over. We've spent the past few days polling your opinion on the best that PlayStation had to offer in 2014, and while there's been much anger pointed at the absence of DriveClub and Assassin's Creed Unity in our shortlist – we couldn't include...

Why Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor Is Our Game of the Year

You orc to know

It's tag-team time. For the final instalment in our gruelling Game of the Year coverage, this video editor has paired up with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor reviewer Joey Thurmond to uncover just why Monolith Productions' open world adventure deserves our overall PlayStation Platinum Trophy gong. Yeah, the Dudley Boyz may want to...

Game of the Year: Platinum Trophy - Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Platinum Trophy - Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Precious

2014's Game of the Year winner perhaps comes as a surprise, given that we weren't all that confident in its success when it was originally unveiled. Unsure if it was a movie tie-in or simply another in a long line of disappointing Lord of the Rings titles, a slew of intriguing trailers, conference appearances, and developer interviews...

Game of the Year: Silver Trophy - P.T.

Silver Trophy - P.T.

Silent fright

Stealthily announced at Sony's Gamescom conference, P.T. was billed as a 'Playable Teaser' for a new first-person horror game by the fictional 7780s Studio. After the sort of frenzied investigation that only the Internet can provide, it was discovered that the daunting downloadable was in fact a demo for a new Silent Hill game...

If this video were a part of a pudding, it'd be the delicious sponge bit separating the jelly and custard in a nice trifle. In other words: it represents the centre piece of our coverage, before we get to the fruity finale next week. "What's it all about, then?" we hear you scream. Well, it's the best PS4 games of 2014 –...

Greatness awaits

Sony would probably agree that the PlayStation 4's first year wasn't exactly vintage – but then, when does a console ever come flying out of the gates? From a first-party perspective, the platform holder pumped out some quality titles, but compared to its frankly frighteningly lineup in 2013, the past twelve months have fallen...

Game of the Year: Best PS3 Games of 2014

Best PS3 Games of 2014

Antiques roadshow

It's been a funny year for the PlayStation 3. While the system has received plenty of support in 2014, it feels like the attention of the industry has moved on. Cross-generation titles like Destiny and Far Cry 4 have all been advertised with the PlayStation 4 in mind, and sales have taken a tumble as a consequence. Despite what...

Handheld highfliers

Hello everyone – we trust you all had a very Merry Thursday. As you may have noticed elsewhere on the site, we'll be filling the next week's news void with oodles of articles on the Best PlayStation Games of 2014 – and this Video Editor has been busy preparing some videos for those of you that don't like to read. Watch on for...

The whole world in your hands

For a format that's struggled in an age of smartphones and tablet games, the PlayStation Vita has carved out a committed niche of core gamers who love the handheld to death. We get a lot of requests here at Push Square, but number one with a bullet is more coverage for the Japanese giant's miniscule machine – and...

Game of the Year: Gold Trophy - The Last of Us

Gold Trophy - The Last of Us

It can't be for nothing

We’d love for this article to come as a pleasant surprise, but we suspect that it’s more obvious than a brick to the face. The Last of Us felt like a Game of the Year winner when it lurched onto the PlayStation 3 all the way back in early June, and nothing has really topped it in our eyes in the six or so months since...

Game of the Year: Silver Trophy - Resogun

Silver Trophy - Resogun

Save the last humans

Not just the best PlayStation 4 game currently available, but also one of the best releases published on a Sony platform in 2013, the brilliant Resogun rocketed to the top of our internal poll like a firework doused in gasoline. Finnish outfit Housemarque once again proved that it’s the master of the humble shmup,...

Playing with power

It seems a bit strange to be selecting the best annual software for a system that’s only been available for around a month, but consistency means that our Game of the Year countdown demands a PlayStation 4 category. This time last year the platform was little more than a pipedream, but the hot new hardware has bullied the...
