I got those which i am quite happy about despite 50% of them still being in alpha or beta...

-Spintires
-Early access to War For The Overworld
-Early access to Stonehearth
-Magic 2014 Duels of the Planeswalker

Plus Civ Beyond Earth was quite refreshing for a couple of games... :P

ass gravy can be used to fertilize a garden.
how much do you think big companies will learn from their failures in the coming years ?

exactly...
  run_like_snot: profound?
Vodoo: what, my statement ? i don't write profound stuff on…

What failures? They made more money with less effort than the previous years. That's a win.
  tei187: Sadly true.
Vodoo: that's because people with more money in their pocket…

Things will change. They always do.

This was a bad year, much like 2011, the height of the "first person shooters trying to copy CoD's success" phenomenon. Also the height of the most exploitative and deceptive that E3 has ever been.

More AAA games have been delayed for months and then released as atrociously buggy messes this year than any other I can recall in the last decade. People are quick to say "just teething problems from moving to new console generation", but I don't know how true that is, and I'm not all that willing to speculate.

Companies may never learn to stop chasing the most vapid trend (like the first person shooter or the moba), there will be future anti-consumer behaviour and exploitation like pay to win, but I don't think we'll see as many buggy and late games next year, and less the year afterward.

Time will tell.
