  1. Sure, it was partly (and was always going to be) informed by the simple truth that ‘Bioshock’ is my favourite game of all time, but I knew back then when playing it how nothing else due to arrive would beat ‘Bioshock: Infinite’.

    From the crowd cheering Booker’s name after destroying the ship (and indeed the revisionism afforded to this very scene after the plot twist), the Barbershop Quartet, the relationship arc with Elizabeth (that scene of playing the guitar with her singing), the moral and ethical implications of consequence, the sky rails, the sense of urgency during combat (okay, it isn’t the greatest FPS ever made, but neither was ‘Bioshock’), the design and structure, the necessity of education of themes, the…

    Well, you get the point. I apologise not one bit for being a Levine fanboy. I adored every second of it and the Possession vigor is still my most enjoyable personal moment (I stood and watched the suicide upgrade in action in the way I watched the little sisters stroll and converse with Big Daddy in the first) of the year.

    In short, I agree.

  2. 1. The Last of Us (the best game last gen)
    2. GTA 5
    3. Metal Gear Rising
    4. DmC
    5. God of War Ascension (Dieing for GoW4)
    6. BioShock
    7. Black Flag

    • Too big of A PS3 fan, Metal Gear Rising sucks, be a true fan of the series and you would understand.

      • im sorry… can you explain yourself a bit better than that. metal gear rising was amazing. ever heard of opinions? you stupid f**k. go make your list.

  3. My Top 5 fav games
    1: The Last Of Us
    2: Gta 5
    3: Bioshock Infinite
    4: Pokemon x/y
    5: Tomb Raider

  4. To me, everything about Bioshock Infinite screamed average. I really wanted to like it but it just bored me to tears. But I did love the Elizabeth character, she was great. The Last of Us was a much better game imo.
    Also good to see Zelda and Mario make the list, those games were incredible!

    • i think people over rate bioshock because of teh ending. the gameplay is basically the same as the previous games minus the skyline stuff and the best thing about the game are the characters booker and elizabeth. its a great game but its overrated because its got bioshock in the title.

      • You couldn’t be more far from the truth.

  5. Also, Nathan Drake and Indiana Jones, et al, are pansies compared to Lara Croft. That girl is tough.

  6. Ahem. Beyond: Two Souls.

    • Was the number 11 game on our list, just barely missed the cut. But know that Ben K. and myself were big fans of the game.

      • Good to hear :)

  7. “As the first direct sequel in the Zelda franchise”" majoras mask to oot, the ds games to wind waker and THE LEGEND OF ZELDA 2 the adventures of link to zelda 1 on the nes

  8. I’m not a huge fan of linear games so I’m going to have to go with GTA 5 for my 2013 game of the year. Last of us was entertaining but after I played and beat it, there wasn’t too much desire for the replay value.

    On another note my favorite game for the ps3 all together was definitely Red Dead Redemption. Game still amazes me to this day. Can’t wait for the next red dead on PS4
