Top 5 2014 Games We Missed: Thumbstick Athletes Podcast Episode 179

As unfortunate as it may be, we are unable to play all the games we would like to throughout the year.  We can't do the Podcast for 8 hours a day and certainly don't have the money to purchase every single game we would like to, so we have to pick and choose what we would like to spend both time and money on.  Inevitably, we all missed out on some games that came out this year, whether we didn't have the system to play it on, time to play said game, or didn't like the developer/publisher despite a games reviews.  Here is where we give those games credit; formerly a Thumbie category, now in it's own episode.
