The 2013 Game of the Year List of 2013
This list is mostly complete, but things can change between now and the end of the year.
Also, I tried to keep games from past years off the list otherwise Sleeping Dogs would be in the top 3 and Dust: An Elysian Tail and Cook, Serve, Delicious! would make an appearance somewhere. Also, apologies go to Bit.Trip Runner 2, Proteus, The Wonderful 101, Monaco, Metro: Last Light, Antichamber and Gunpoint for not making the list. You guys probaly are alright, but I need to play you guys more. Gone Home... lots of people loved you, but it wasn't for me. SimCity... a simple facepalm for you, sir.
I should also give an honorable mention to Earthbound even though it's a game from 1995. For many of you, it's a 2013 game and it deserves the insane amount of praise it gets from crazies like me.
