Why This Video Game Stock Can Keep Winning in 2014

Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI  ) , GameStop (NYSE: GME  ) , and Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ: TTWO  ) each trounced the overall market this year. But which of these three winners has the best potential to keep rising in 2014?

In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos makes the case for Activision Blizzard. This video game titan has faced a risky year, with challenges to its tentpole franchises from the likes of Disney and Electronic Arts. But both its Skylanders and Call of Duty brands appear set to keep their lead as the industry transitions into the next-generation game consoles. That, plus a new corporate structure that includes more insider ownership of the company, should give investors confidence in Activision's long-term potential.

    WoW is losing subscribers, CoD got mediocre reviews and is selling less than previous versions, and Skylanders had to slash prices to compete thus reducing margins. Activision is doing OK but they largely because their competition screwed up. EA's Battlefield 4 has been plagued with bugs and Disney Infinity game quality just is not as good as Skylanders.

    Activision seems like they are flat-lining for now. Destiny is their great hope.
