These are my favourite games of 2013.
My favourite game this year, BioShock Infinite delivers on every level, with a great story, fun combat, and some of the best art design this generation.
The Last of Us is the best playing and best written game Naughty Dog has ever released, providing both a great feeling of dread that makes you want to stop playing, and a gripping story that ensures that you see it to conclusion.
While Outlast may have its fair share of flaws, they're never enough to get in the way of your experience. It thrills you from the beginning up until the final half hour, when the game starts to lose its way.
For a game that reuses so much content from its predecessor, Saints Row IV feels like a very new experience, and is the best platformer-free roam hybrid out there, while providing players with the amount of laughs one would hope for from a sequel to Saints Row: The Third.
Despite being a spiritual successor to an SNES game, A Link Between Worlds is easily the most modern feeling Zelda game, with a faster pace and more dynamic structure than ever before.
Despite the fact that many would say that's not much of a game, Gone Home makes you feel very involved in everything that is going on, and tells a brief but memorable story.
While it may not feel especially different from previous games in the series, Dual Destinies continues to provide the unique characters and surprises that fans would expect from the series, and a switch to Polygonal art makes the characters more expressive than ever.
While an immigration officer simulator may not sound very interesting, feeling soulless has never been more engaging.
A fun, polished strategy game, with enough character development to make each unit's death feel like a heavy loss.
An interesting game to toy around with for a couple days, The Stanley Parable is full of surprises, and is one of the funniest games this year.
Grand Theft Auto V is one of the best playing games Rockstar has put out, and has a story that will keep you interested until the final third, where the game starts to lose steam.
One of the newest feeling games released this year, there's nothing out there quite like Surgeon Simulator 2013.
Great feeling combat, with some of the best level design out there.
While you may not find it as moving as others, Brothers finds unique ways to develop characters through gameplay, making it a, at the very least, interesting experience.
Provides a punishing, but fun combat system, with interesting additions to mechanics from past games in the series.
This game may not connect with you the way it did with others, but it's definitely worth checking out, especially due to the fact that it's free.
While the game may have it's fair share of issues, it's an interesting experiment, and one that covers themes one would not expect to see in a video game.
A fun old-school shooter that provides a surprising amount of content, at the cost of going on a little too long.
Injustice is able to manage being both a game that feels fun the second you start playing, and one that has the depth to keep players interested for months.
An incredibly charming game, with good puzzle design and a unique combat mechanic.
Zeno Clash II improves in terms of visuals, having the technological power to match the series' great characters and environments, but feels like a step backwards in terms of combat, feeling a lot slower and less engaging than the original.
A disturbing story with equally unsettling art design, but not very satisfying for those expecting to be scared.
Few games provide the lightning-fast pace that Divekick does, making it a very fun, unique experience.
Not a bad game, but a pretty straightforward action game. While the game has some pretty weird moments, it doesn't quite have the level of insanity one may expect from a Platinum game.
Fun, but little more than past Animal Crossing games.
Little can be said about X/Y, it is almost exactly what one would expect from the series, with some adjustments being made to make the game move a little quicker.
While the game has some interesting ideas, the plot and puzzles are too simple and the environments are too bland to make it a very memorable experience.
