Golden Minecart Awards 2014: Vote NOW!


Voting is now open for the grand and glorious 2014 Golden Minecart Awards.

These are your awards. YOU decide, so get your votes in and make your voice heard!

The PlayStation 4 has a full year under its belt and a lot of quality games to show for it. With three PlayStation platforms in full swing this will be the most awards we’ve ever given out. The entire staff of PS Nation worked hard over the past few weeks to present you with a list of five nominees in each category.

As always, if your game hasn’t been nominated there‚Äôs a write-in opportunity for every category. These are your awards after all. Don’t think of a write-in vote as a throw away. Last year three different write-in selections placed third, fifth, and sixth (all ahead of the official nominees) in two different categories.

Voting can be done twice per day (once every 12 hours) same as last year, so vote as often as you can to make your voice heard.

The polls will close on Monday, January 12th at 11pm Eastern and the results will be announced on Episode 407 or 408 of the Podcast. So what are you waiting for? Start voting now!




Good luck to all the nominees, and remember, you can vote once every 12 hours, so vote as often as you can to make your voice heard, These are YOUR awards.

    JUJU has my Family Friendly Game (PS3) vote

    • Keith Dunn

      I wanna play that!

  • Jahonius

    This list reminds me that it’s been a great indie year!
    Not only were they reaching a new heights in innovations and artistry, but cross-buy on PlayStation platforms, coming as free games on PS+ and so forth.

    2015 will be the year of AAA’s by my favorite developers, though.

    Happy holidays!

    I really wanted to vote for Freedom Wars in a lot of Vita categories but Rogue Legacy is soooo good.

    Also how is Never Alone a GOTY nominee but Dragon Age isn’t? Not a knock against Never Alone but that omission seems very strange.

    • Keith Dunn

      Write it in! Campaign for it! Have fun!

    • For each category I asked the staff to pick their top five from a list of everything within that category. For GOTY I asked them to pick their top eight from the FULL release list.

      I was surprised by Never Alone but it was tied for third in staff votes. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was #5 overall in the staff voting while Dragon Age (and four others) ended up one vote behind that.

      • London Rhodes

        Yeah I guess there is probably no way to do this kind of fan vote and make everyone happy at the same time.

    • ChazzH69

      I’m partly to blame for that one. Haven’t played Dragon Age (or Rogue Legacy) yet.

      • London Rhodes

        I love Dragon Age but Rogue Legacy is damn gooooood. People compare it to Castlevania: SotN (one of my all time favorites) I liken it to Ghost and Goblins with cool RPG mechanics.

  • Voted! Cannot wait for the results

    • Remember, you can vote every 12 hours. Time it right and you can do it twice a day every day until voting ends.

        I would help your game out but alas I have not played it and do not want to jeopardize the legitimacy of the awards. Good luck though.

        • IceSamurai Dono
