Best Sports Game of 2013 Award

Winner: FIFA 14

When it comes to the sports genre, there are football fans and then there are gamers. FIFA has miraculously struck the balance between these two extremes, creating a worldwide virtual football community around their yearly franchise and 2014 was no different. From new animations to new modes to new next-generation PlayStation 4 visuals complete with smooth online play, FIFA 14 has everything you could want from a football game.

While we did miss a big new addition to the franchise in 2014, the latest from EA and the team at EA Canada has laid the groundwork for chart-topping domination throughout the next console cycle. While other sports games focused on finding steady footing in new technology, none captured our attention like FIFA 14.

Runners Up:

  • NBA 2K14
  • MLB 13
  • NHL 14
