(I know I’m a bit late, but hey, better late than never).
2014 has been a very interesting year since I discovered a bunch of new games, shows/anime or even books, but also fell in love with older ones. Which means that this list won’t only focus on things that specifically only came out last year. It’s still very hard to keep up with a lot of things, if you have so many interests. I try to balance it a bit, and have these periods where I only watch certain shows or play certain games and manage to make progress. But sometimes, I like to mix things up a bit, but of course that means that it will take me longer to finish something. That’s why I just prefer focusing on my main, favorite shows that are currently airing and only watch other ones on blu-ray once everything is on break. That’s how I managed to discover a few new shows this year as well! As for games, it just pretty much depends on my mood and how much time I have. Oh and unfortunately, I didn’t watch too many movies or read too many books, something I really want to change this year.

To quickly add a few notes about my list, I’m so glad that I finally discovered Virtue’s Last Reward and the first two Batman games. 2014 hasn’t been the best year for gaming though, especially with big titles like AC Unity or Watch Dogs being a bit disappointing.
That’s why I am very happy I discovered a few new (or old) shows last year, like Hannibal or Game of Thrones. Yes, I only started watching GoT last year and only watched the first season. I still have a few months to watch the others until season 5 airs, which I definitely plan on doing. But what I love the most are the DC Comics shows: Gotham, Constantine, Arrow and The Flash. I am so thankful for these but I just wish the ratings for Constantine would go up… It’s amongst my favorite ones and I would hate to see it go.
I usually watch a lot of anime during summer, that’s also when I stumbled across Madoka which is absolutely amazing and one of my favorites now. As for Korra, I just had to add that show to my list since, even with its ups (Book 3) and downs (Book 2), I loved this cartoon to bits and will really miss it.
Movies were more or less ok, but I do plan on watching much more this year. The same counts for books. I only listed one graphic novel and two mangas here, since they were the most memorable. Especially Y: The Last Man which I can only recommend. Shingeki no Kyojin is only on here, because I decided to read the manga and catch up and devoured all the volumes in a very short period of time.
That’s more or less it. Really hope to discover even more new shows, games and books in 2015! I already plan on watching/playing/reading a bunch of things, so let’s just hope I will actually find the time to do all of that.
