Bit of a busy year for Kotaku. The next generation arrived! There are new games! New studios! And the community didn't sit by idly, either, producing many examples of amazing fanart, fascinating articles, and more than enough silly videos. Picking favorites is nigh-impossible—luckily, I have numbers.
What follows are, in descending order, the twenty-five articles which drew in the most readers this year, according to our official numbers. Are you ready for a trip down memory lane?
The end of a legendary game studio. Man, 1313 would have been amazing.
We share our favorite games on the iPad.
We do the same for the iPhone.
The 24-hour check-in system proposed for the Xbox One, along with Microsoft's restrictive used games policy, elicited massive community backlash—no, really, it was huge—actually causing Microsoft to pull a 180.
Yes, time travel. Phone-based time travel. The best kind of time travel, outside setting your PC's date to December to access Tyrian's Christmas mode.
To be fair, the guy could've been a lot nicer. So I guess they're even? Sort of? She didn't end up killing him, did she?
Modular phones are the future, at least according to this guy.
Significantly less white than Mirror's Edge, though.
Our top picks for the Nintendo 3DS....
...and our top picks for the PS3.
A better place for us, that is. Not the ones they're trolling.
Lots of early-year info about Sony's all-new PS4.
Since the PC is unaffected by the passing of the console generations, as a single platform, it amassed quite the collection of classic games. Here, we tried to collect the must-play ones. It was no small task—luckily, we had you guys to help us out!
Our favorite picks for the 360.
In which a game developer talks about... well, code. I'll level with you, I understood very little of this article. But I sure felt smart reading it!
You'd think this wouldn't do as well with the internet already filled to the brim with porn. Guess people really like Ellen Page.
Spoilers: Minecraft is on this list. Who would've guessed!
It looks really pretty, at least with the right mods. This post is actually from last year, which just shows how timeless Skyrim's beauty is. At least when it's amped up with mods.
Followed, hilariously, by hundreds of comments pointing out which ships are missing from the chart. Never change, Kotaku.
It's the fifth GTA. Honestly, I'm surprised this isn't higher on the list.
No, this isn't about the TheSurvivor2299 hoax. It's something better. Something real.
A treasure trove of information about Microsoft's youngest.
This is where the whole used games thing and 24-hour check-in thing got out of the bag. Lots of worried people in the comments.
Amazingly lucky that the physics didn't freak out.
It's amazing how much creativity boredom can inspire.
