So, Call of Duty is out in mere hours on the east coast and with that the last Major release of this year. Sure, there is new hardware but strictly speaking software Call of Duty releasing usually marks the last big hurrah of video games for the year. So, what did you get around to playing/buying this year?
Its been a long year with both ups and downs and if you've forgotten some of the stuff earlier in the year well, that is entirely reasonable. If you need a refresher check out this list on Wikipedia: 2013 In Games
Now, I'm strictly talking about NEW games here released in 2013. So whats your list? Mine looks a little like this.
- Anarchy Reigns
- DmC Devil May Cry

Wow, THAT is a list of games. And that is just the new stuff I've played. Needless to say cutting that down to 10 games only this year is going to be a task. People want to be cynical but shit man its been a GREAT year for video games.
I'm going to start replaying everything on that list for a least a couple of hours and start really formulating my final list along with my respective blog entries. I look forward to seeing what everyone else spent their time playing this year along with what everyone considers the best of the year as I'm sure we'll start to see a influx of GOTY blogs within the next few weeks.
