Final Results: 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2014

There can be only one twenty!

Fifth year...

After a 7+ week open nominations period and a 2+ week voting period, 2,980 votes were cast and the results are in.

In addition to this competition, the 20 Most Desired Reprints of 2014 ran in parallel. That was a blue-sky competition without the "reasonable expectation of 2014 release" of this Most Anticipated competition.

So, without further ado, here are the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2014 at the opening of the year as determined in this most in-formal and un-official contest (links to individual categories are below):

1st Xia: Legends of a Drift System (577)
2nd Cthulhu Wars (486)
3rd Myth (341)
4th SeaFall (335)
5th Shadows of Brimstone (325)

7th Sentinels of the Multiverse: Vengeance (279)
8th King of New York (276)
9th X-Wing 2014 Expansions (273)
10th Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game (254)
