So now 2013's out of the way, with its meagre offering of gaming news (we only had two new consoles, massive franchise reboots, the best Mario game in decades and the most thrilling indie line-up ever), let's look to the future.

For while GTA 5 and FIFA 14 are all well and good, there's still a ridiculous amount of gaming goodness coming up next year. Like... FIFA 15. (And more exciting stuff too).

To that end, we've pulled together our rolling list of the 10 most exciting upcoming video games you'll play in 2014.

Take a look at our selections, and let us know if we've missed any.

  • Mario Kart 8

    The Koopalings have been revealed on the February 13th Nintendo Direct to be playable characters in Mario Kart 8.

  • Watch Dogs

    Ubisoft has revealed just how long it'll take the average player to finish the upcoming hack-centric open world adventure.

  • Drive Club

    Drive Club is the exclusive racing game the PS4 needed at launch, but lacked. It's certainly beautiful, and detailed, but we're hoping for subtly enhanced gameplay from the pretty staid title we played at Gamescom.

  • Bayonetta 2

    Bayonetta was a ridiculous, combo-filled romp that divided people for its "enthusiastic" (arguably sexist) aesthetic, but thrilled with its fast-paced gameplay. The Wii U exclusive sequel promises more of the same - and a welcome shot in the Gamepad for Nintendo's console.

  • The Division

    The developers of Ubisoft's upcoming shooter The Division discuss the amazing capabilities of the Snowdrop Engine.

  • Assassin's Creed V: Unity

    We don't know much about this yet - but it's set in the French Revolution, and it's beautiful.

  • Alien: Isolation

    We gather together industry experts from Official PlayStation Magazine, PC Gamer and CVG to preview upcoming survival horror game Alien: Isolation. Can the team at Creative Assembly mend the damage previously done the revered sci-fi franchise?

  • EverQuest Next

    Check out this time lapse trailer showing off how you can build in EverQuest Next.

  • The Order: 1886

    Venture into the neo-Victorian London fog with Ready at Dawn's PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886.
