Games of Video in the Year 2013 CE

Before launching into them, I'd like to announce 2014's 2013 Games of the Year, or games I haven't played enough of or just haven't got to at all, that could likely have broken this list.

  • Tomb Raider
  • Need for Speed: Rivals
  • Starbound
  • Saints Row 4
  • Metal Gear Rising
  • Assassin's Creed 4
  • Guacamelee
  • Remember Me
  • Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Now, onto this year's most smokin'est bangers.

Nice list.

As a Kickstarter backer of Xenonauts, I'm giving you permission to go ahead and claim whatever you want on the release date. I've been playing it off and on since its initial alpha releases on Desura last year, and while I certainly like it as a steadfast tribute to the original XCOM, at this point I have to admit that I'm a bit frustrated at how slow the development has been. The game as it is now really isn't all that different from what I was playing over a year ago.

I'm confused as to what BCE adds to this.

Either it's an intriguing commentary about how games are a fundamental pursuit of humanity and that even with all of our so-called advanced technology, after four thousand years the excitement and satisfaction we all enjoy from playing remains the same.

or the dude meant, "CE".

Man, I didn't get around to your top three games at all this year, even though I wanted to (I bought GTAV, at least).

I intend to set this right in 2014. Seeing your list helps kinda light a fire under my ass, too.

Ha, Long live the Queen. Yeah that game is something else isn't it? I really wish more people would have heard on that. Pretty crazy game.
