Best of 2013

We're contractually obligated to do this, right?

And, yeah, The Last of Us is not on my list. I played the first few hours of it and wasn't really enjoying the game part of it. I love Uncharted, so...I don't know. I DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN MYSELF TO YOU!

Seriously though, I did end up watching a no commentary play through of the game on YouTube recently though, because I was interested in the story part. I did enjoy watching it, but putting it on my list after that doesn't feel right.

So, here we go. Feel free to yell at me in the comments.

6 games better than brothers?!

That's interesting about Uncharted/Last of Us... I hate Uncharted but love The Last Of Us. I do think the first few hours of The Last Of Us are the most like gunless Uncharted and then it opens up. Also why won't they release another 3D Picross??

Why start out with number 1?

I picked up the game boy version Picross through Club Nintendo. It's the first time I've played one of these and I'm kind of addicted. I'm intrigued by your inclusion of Picross e.

Picross with colour?! I--J'UH--can't even---

@tothenines: Because that's how lists work here.

A clunky work around that I've started to do is to make an unordered list and add each game 10-1, putting the number in the description. Again, it's super clunky and awkward, but if you are a stickler for descending order it might be worth it.

I enjoyed Brothers but I've heard some people in the past say they didn't like certain games because they were "emotionally manipulative" and then I hear them like Brothers and I'm like...wah?

Great list. I am super stoked to play A Link Between Worlds, as I have nothing but fond memories of the original.

Picross is the only game on this list that matters. PICROSS FOR LYFE

Looks like a solid list but Last of Us isn't on it which means it's completely and objectively false. If you keep working on yourself maybe next year will be better.

This is a good list. Tomb Raider was what Uncharted 3 should have been. Also, it rightfully ignores The Last of Us, which has somehow succeeded in convincing most people that it isn't trash.

It's always funny to see people late to a party to call something that people love overrated. I hope that you were actually able to enjoy one of the best games of all time, and are just trolling poorly.

I actually posted a review pointing out how terrible it is shortly after it released. I'm not late to the party, man. Just wait, in time people will realize how hilariously bad TLOU is, much like how most non-maniacs are now suddenly aware that FF7 is godawful too. Pretty sure it's a very similar case, too, actually, with both games blinding people with cutscene quality.
