  1. My personal top 3 of 2013 are:
    Last of Us
    Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
    The Wolf Among Us (1st episode only, obviously)

  2. easy. the last of us.

  3. Games. Rayman Legends was the best game with actual GAMING. Mario 3d World, The Legend Of Zelda a link between worlds, Pokemon Y, and Deadpool. The rest, not really games… watching something is called a movie.

    • hhahahaha… comparing games to movies XD how silly

  4. I’m surprised Final Fantasy 14 ARR isn’t in the list since it won MMO of the Year for both PC and PS3. A bit surprising.

  5. Hard to narrow down to one game. I enjoyed these 5 games the most in 2013.

    GTA V
    The Last of Us
    Assassin’s Creed IV
    Devil May Cry
    Metal Gear Rising

    • I’d give it to last of us, with GTA 5 comin up real close. Great stories.

  6. Well, I won’t repeat Levine love-in on a previous post, but I concur with two of the above. Simply, for me, nothing else came close to ‘BioShock: Infinite’.

    ‘The Last of Us’ was heartbreaking and beautiful. Just that damn AI ruining the immersion at points the game had previously spent 10 minutes wonderfully drawing me in.

    I wish I liked ‘Beyond: Two Souls’ more, but Cage just does not know how to write original dialogue and character. A few quick examples:

    - Teenage rebel Jodie. Naturally, this calls for Emo make-up/clothes.
    - A game about spirits. Better throw some Native Americans in there then.
    - The arc of Nathan Dawkins. From the point on of the “twist”, everything just gets embarrassing.

    Cage is a great ideas man. There were times when the Jodie/Aidan dynamic worked a treat (switching of the first condenser. Being separated). But in almost every scene there is a least one “What?” moment. You know, maybe it is the medium itself. Moments arrive from nowhere that perhaps would’ve made more sense after a different decision. But, I just think he hasn’t learned a single thing since ‘Fahrenheit’ as a writer.

  7. I’d go Bioshock Infinite this year…

    as someone who hated playing The Last of Us I hope it doesn’t win. Great story, that’s why I watched it on youtube edited together, but I just couldn’t get into playing it. Which is nothing new for me for a Naughty Dog game because I was the same way with the Uncharted games.

    Unpopular opinion I know.

  8. Lots of great memorable story and character driven games in 2013. My personal favorite is probably Beyond Two Souls.

  9. I gotta go with the last of us. Hands down not even a debate to me. Naughty dog has always sold me with uncharted and the last of us not only kept thee high of the uncharted franchise but added soo much more. It’s so different and beautiful and heart breaking. This is the onlygamewhere I literally finished it and immediately replayed. The last of us.

    But other games I enjoyed in this order. Is.
    Tomb raider.
    Ark ham origins.
    Bio shock ( for the story only. Gameplay sucked )
    Gta5. Too long of a campaign and it kinda dragged out for me. The heists were the best part of that game.

    • Oh s***. Beyond two souls is tied with bio shock. How could I forget that.

  10. 1. Bioshock Infinite
    2. Pokemon X and Y
    3. GTA V
    4. Assassins Creed IV
    5. Injustice: Gods among us
    #5 was tricky to put down because I’m sure link between worlds will take that spot once I beat it and while i enjoyed what I played of it I did not own nor beat Ni No Kuni so I couldn’t add that one.

  11. AC IV
    Pokemon X / Y
    GTA V
    CoD Ghosts…I guess.

  12. Starbound is one of the best games ever. A few others that are good are Pokemon X/Y and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag

  13. My top 5 would definitely be:

    1. The Last of Us
    2. Bioshock Infinite
    3. Rayman Legends
    4. Diablo 3 (ps3)
    5. DMC

    Pretty hard to narrow down really. Honorable mention to GTA V, Super Mario 3D World and Batman: Arkham Origins.

  14. Without a doubt
    1. SaintsRowIV
    Still playing it & hasn’t stopped.

  15. MY game of the year is definitely The Last of Us, without question. No other game of 2013 has pulled me in quite like that one. If I had to pick any honorable mentions, it would be Grand Theft Auto V & Tomb Raider.

  16. 1. Last of Us
    2. BF4 (I haven’t had a lot issues on PC)
    3. Assassins Creed 4
    4. Metro Last Light
    5. Tomb Raider
    6. Bioshock Infininte

    I am waiting on for GTA 5 to come to PC so I can’t put it in my top games.

  17. Last of us hands down. Best game ever made loved everything about it. Gta 5 in second just cause its so awesome

  18. Because i’m only PC Player
    - Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag
    - Battlefield 4
    - Bioshock Infinite
    - Outlast
    - Tomb Raider
    - Fez
    - Arkham Origins

  19. My games of the year are.

    Lost Planet 3

    The last of us.

    And Halo 4.

    That’s all.

  20. Best game of the year for me was without a doubt the last of us. The closest game I’ve played that delivered a similar experience for its time was RE4 but the last of us really nailed the character department and succeeded in plot where RE4 was lacking. The last of us is one of the best games I’ve ever played. If gamers are looking for story and characters then I highly recommend it.
