Last year there were some murmurings about the game selection process. So this year I'm opening the list up early for people to debate about what games belong on it, what games don't, etc. The thread will close in early January when the contest starts. It should be noted that this is still pretty much a dictatorship (there is no formal voting process), but the opinions of people who have participated in previous years, authors of the games, and popular opinions will be weighed more heavily than others.
Obviously 2014 isn't over yet, so any games released this month that qualify will be added to it as they are released.
If you don't know what the review contest is, it's where people compete to review every game released in a year within a short time span (usually a couple months).
List of 2014 Games

Compilation Games (Review one, some, or all of these games as a single review)
Elephants Most Wanted (Unfinished)
* Was either released in 2014 or had a major update in 2014 (a major update is an update which contains significant new content rather than just bug fixes). This rule is more lenient when the game is old enough that it hasn't been in a review contest before.
* Is not a tool, example, or tech demo.
* Has enough content in it to be able to write 3 paragraphs about it.
* Games that were made in a previous year, but weren't featured in a review contest due to not being known at the time (ie, not on the CP/SS game lists) are eligible, particularly if they've been uploaded this year. (aka the Megaman Sprite Game Rule)
