My Vote goes to: The Last Of Us.

A great game that was even better than Bioshock Infinite.

Runner up. DmC. A great game from the start of the year.

Are you asking me? If so i'd have to go with GTA5.

#4 Posted by Sgtpierceface (620 posts) -

This thread is probably going to devolve into terrible-ness, so I'll just say this...

Bioshock Infinite is 100% the best game of the year.

#5 Posted by wjb (1658 posts) -

Dark Souls. Then Mass Effect 2. GOTY 2013.

#6 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

Terranigma.

#7 Edited by Stonyman65 (2681 posts) -

I'd say Saints Row IV or Tomb Raider. I've had more fun with those two games than anything else this year.

Still haven't gotten to playing Last of Us, so keeping that in mind...

Probably Saints Row or Brothers? It's occuring to me that I didn't really buy new games this year. I did enjoy DmC more than most, though.

Edit: Whoops forgot about Stanley Parable and Ni No Kuni, somehow.

@stonyman65: It's amazing how experiences can be different. Those games were so dull to me that I uninstalled them before I was probably at the half way mark to finishing them.

I don't agree because The Last of Us, but it's nice to see someone super positive about that game for once. (y)

#12 Posted by mosespippy (4134 posts) -

Judging by this weeks podcast it is not Brothers. It doesn't even get runner up. So the answer is Candy Box.

If I had to guess, I'd say the majority of people who played the game liked it. Negative comments just often tend to drown out all others.

#14 Posted by Abendlaender (2790 posts) -

I dunno. I can't really think of a game that impressed me this year. Did Blood Dragon come out this year? I liked that...

#15 Posted by Capum15 (4884 posts) -

Saints Row 4. The intro alone was worth it.

#16 Edited by BaneFireLord (2928 posts) -

Stanley Parable for me. No contest.

#17 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5441 posts) -

Fire Emblem Awakening!

I hate to say it but AC IV looks like it will be in my top 5 games of the year. I really feel like this game is getting overlooked because of how bad AC 3 was.

My GOTY is Disgaea D2.
Looking at games objectively instead of subjectively, I have to give it to Bioshock.

Christ I just realized I have not bought a game that came out in 2013. Best game I've played this year is probably the Witcher 2

Guacamelee, I love punching things and I love Metroidvanias

I'll go with Black Flag. Nice new innovations, great open world, and beautiful atmospheres. I also enjoyed Tomb Raider for some reason, maybe only because I was enjoying myself in (real) life also at that time, although I found the game's story to be dumb.

Bioshock shocked me when I finished it, but after that wore off it seemed like a "meh" experience looking back at it.

I only own a PC so no GTA V for me.

Overall it's been a weak year for me, especially on PC.

#28 Edited by Xavtron (103 posts) -

Bioshock Infinite hands down for me Fire Emblem and Device 6 coming in 2nd and 3rd. I honestly don't get the love for Stanley Parable (I found the writing obnoxious and not nearly as clever as it thought it was being) and especially Brothers (I got no emotional response from it, I thought it was really, light and brief in a way that limited it). I obviously don't mind that others enjoy them, but there seems to be a really dismissive attitude amongst a lot of their fans that any top 10 without them is a joke.

#29 Edited by Dalai (7022 posts) -

Right now it's Bioshock Infinite and will likely remain that unless Nintendo absolutely wows me with either Mario or Zelda in a few days.

#30 Posted by hauntingthedark (44 posts) -

I hope it changes to Zelda or Mario. Bioshock was good at the time but when I went back to play it again I got SO bored.

I want to say I am liking Mario more than GTA and TLOU but I will let the new game feel wear off first. So far it's the perfect hybrid of 3D land and Galaxy though.

Gone Home.

#34 Posted by Veektarius (4785 posts) -

Tomb Raider is mine.

The Last of Us

#36 Posted by KontX (116 posts) -

I will never understand why Bioshock Infinite gets so much acclaim. It's good but it's not that amazing. I thought the story was total bullshit.

Otherwise, Saints Row IV.

"Look, Matt. You don't have to die a virgin." "Can you call me Nyteblade?" "Are you fuckin serious?"

3D World for realz

#38 Edited by Nodima (1167 posts) -

I'd love to say the Last of Us because so much of it blew me away, but at the end of the day...

Grand Theft Auto is Grand Theft Auto. It was pre-ordained from the moment Rockstar gave it a release date.

#39 Posted by Jimi (1126 posts) -

Toss up between Pokemon and Bioshock for me. TLOU is a great game but I can't say it was my favourite game of the year as I came away from it feeling like a terrible human being.

That said if we're going from a purely objective view, TLOU is the game of the year.

#40 Posted by AlexGBRO (296 posts) -

Zelda ALBW could be game, it is incredible and also a lot of people wanted this game

Holy shit...now having played the game I just realized that this came from one of the more fucked up levels in the game.

#42 Edited by McLargepants (375 posts) -

Top three games of the year so far in no order because I can't decide yet are Gunpoint, Rogue Legacy and The Last of Us. I am really enjoying Assassin's Creed IV, so that'll probably end up on the full list, but there were a lot of high quality games this year, so who knows? I can say with certainty, however, that there are in fact 10 games that came out this year that are better than Brothers!

#43 Edited by mercutio123 (471 posts) -

I'm playing Infinite right now. That games combat is so dull and goes on for way too long. Get on with the point Levine!

You're terrible. Surprisingly ACIV is probably the 2nd best game of the year behind the Last of Us. Bioshock is worse than Tomb Raider, GTA V, Injustice, Rogue Legacy etc.

I disagree with your Bioshock assessment, but wholeheartedly agree with your love for ACIV. It is bloody fantastic. I feel like it is being overlooked by almost everyone.

GTA V is the frontrunner for me and I don't see that changing.

#47 Posted by buwchbach (311 posts) -

haven't played it yet, but it looks like Hate Plus would be worth consideration.

As far as games I've actually played, Ittle Dew was pretty lovely? Also They Bleed Pixels was amazing.

#48 Edited by Azteck (7449 posts) -

Bioshock Infinite for me. That game hit me hard

#49 Posted by Ben_H (3349 posts) -

Either Saints Row IV, GTAV, new SC2 expansion, or one of the many amazing games that came out on 3DS this year. Seriously, in this, the Year of Luigi, there were so many good games on 3DS. Animal Crossing, Pokemans, Luigi's Mansion, new Ace Attorney, new Mario & Luigi, this new Zelda that is supposed to be dope, and more. I haven't even been able to finish any of them yet there are so many games. My 3DS went from being my Animal Crossing machine to the main video game device I use.
