So, Call of Duty is out in mere hours on the east coast and with that the last Major release of this year. Sure, there is new hardware but strictly speaking software Call of Duty releasing usually marks the last big hurrah of video games for the year. So, what did you get around to playing/buying this year?

Its been a long year with both ups and downs and if you've forgotten some of the stuff earlier in the year well, that is entirely reasonable. If you need a refresher check out this list on Wikipedia: 2013 In Games

Now, I'm strictly talking about NEW games here released in 2013. So whats your list? Mine looks a little like this.

  • Anarchy Reigns
  • DmC Devil May Cry
  • The Cave
  • Ni No Kuni : Wrath of the White Witch
  • Metal Gear Rising : Revengence
  • Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2 : Future Legend of Rhythm Alien
  • Tomb Raider
  • Bioshock Infinite
  • Ninja Gaiden 3 : Razor's Edge
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us
  • Don't Starve
  • Dragon's Dogma : Dark Arisen
  • Thomas Was Alone
  • Rogue Legacy
  • Dragon's Crown
  • Tales of Xillia
  • Divekick
  • Saints Row IV
  • Hatsune Miku : Project DIVA F
  • Killer is Dead
  • Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate
  • Grand Theft Auto 5
  • Beyond : Two Souls
  • WWE 2K14

Wow, THAT is a list of games. And that is just the new stuff I've played. Needless to say cutting that down to 10 games only this year is going to be a task. People want to be cynical but shit man its been a GREAT year for video games.

I'm going to start replaying everything on that list for a least a couple of hours and start really formulating my final list along with my respective blog entries. I look forward to seeing what everyone else spent their time playing this year along with what everyone considers the best of the year as I'm sure we'll start to see a influx of GOTY blogs within the next few weeks.

I felt like I played less this year. But looking at that list.... yeah. I certainly bought more and wanted to buy even more, but that damn 3 hour commute. Coming up next month, I'll have Battlefield 4, Need For Speed Rivals, Knack, and possibly Killzone. And then I think it's time to start catching up on some stuff.

DmC: Devil May Cry

Temple Run 2

Crysis 3

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Runner 2

Tomb Raider

God of War: Ascension

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams

BioShock Infinite


Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

The Last of Us

Hotline Miami

Muramasa Rebirth

Stealth Inc. – A Clone in the Dark

Cloudberry Kingdom

Dragon's Crown

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (Brad was right)

DuckTales: Remastered


Saints Row IV


Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse HD Remake

Rayman Legends


Rocksmith 2014

Batman: Arkham Origins

And I watched Game Informer play most of Ride to Hell: Retribution. So I'll count that.

I just came to the sad realization, that I spend way too much time playing video games. But I did not finish all those games either. Some of them I only played for a few hours before never touching again. I have more of a video game buying problem. I buy way more games than I could ever actually fully play.

2013: Games I Completed I played a bunch of other stuff here and there, but if I couldn't be arsed to beat it then it didn't really appeal to me. I guess my list of stuff I bought would be a better list of stuff if you only care about games you played in some way or another as I at least started those games and played them for a few hours. Now that I look over the list some I have never touched. Most I put a few hours into at least.

Not sure how to place it--whether it means I wasn't sold on a lot of titles in 2013 or whether it's indicative of my slowly falling out of such fervent passion for gaming--but I really didn't play too many new releases this year. This spring, caught the Injustice bug, and more or less spent the rest of the year playing that. Far and away my Game of the Year. Nothing could pull me away from it.

Mucked around with Bioshock Inifnite and Grand Theft Auto. Have a copy of Batman sitting here, within arm's reach, collecting dust over its unmarred cellophane packaging. Spent some time, but not much, with Tomb Raider and The Last of Us. Nearly finished Beyond Two Souls.

Divekick. There was that brief spat with Divekick.

So, yup. Not a whole lot. Apart from hundreds of hours of Injustice, that is.

I've mostly played older stuff this year, I guess. I've bought many of the new releases, but not booted them up.

I've played (but generally not finished) these though:

  • Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
  • Thomas Was Alone
  • Rogue Legacy
  • Dragon's Crown
  • Killzone Mercenary
  • Divekick
  • Atelier Totori Plus
  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
  • Battlefield 4
  • Proteus
  • Defiance
  • Dust 514 (if that counts, I mostly played it during beta in 2012)
  • Star Trek
  • Hawken
  • Ace Combat: Assault Horizon (like Dragon's Dogma, Atelier Totori and Dust 514 it got a significant rerelease in 2013)

  • Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, but for some reason the mid-mission cutscenes are all sped up so I need subtitles to know what they said since it goes too fast for the audio. Still a fun game but I might have to go play my 360 version (steam sales are...uh...quite capable of destroying my willpower) again sometime.
  • Trials: Evolution - Gold Edition
  • Bioshock Infinite
  • Dead Island: Riptide
  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
  • Company of Heroes 2 (so good, Comrade)
  • Saints Row IV (GOTY hands down)
  • Grand Theft Auto V (tied with CoH2 for third)
  • Pokemon X (just under SR4 for me)
  • Deadly Premonition - Director's Cut (finally got it to work, just as dumb as what I saw in the ERs, and I love it)
  • Terraria PC (got a huge update so I'm including it)

Have but still need to play: Dead Space 3, Brutal Legend, Tomb Raider, Metro: Last Light, State of Decay (only played a few minutes so far), and a few more I'm probably forgetting.

Want to play: Assassin's Creed 4 (PC, so I gotta wait), Battlefield 4 (might buy it pretty soon to catch the GB server), X: Rebirth (day goddamn one, most likely), CoD: Ghosts.

I was looking forward to Watch_Dogs but I suppose that'll have to wait now.

To be fair, it's discriminatory against me as well. But that's what my other list is for.

Are we talking beat or played? If the former here is my list of games beaten this year.



Halo 4

Total: 1


Total: 1


Call of Duty Black Ops 2

Total: 2


To The Moon

God Of War: Ascension

Total: 4


The Witcher 2


Total: 6


Dead Space 3

Total: 7


Bioshock Infinite

Marvel Heroes

Total: 9


Metal Gear Rising

Gears of War Judgement


Prototype 2

Total: 13


Remember Me

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge

Total: 15


Red Faction: Armageddon

Dragon Age Origins

The Last of Us


Total: 19

So it looks like 10 games beaten. Now if we are talking played in any form then the number would be probably triple that. Here's a handful I plan to beat by the new year:

Sly Cooper 2

Sleeping Dogs

The first Resident Evil Light Gun Game on PS3 (whatever the name is)

Hitman Absolution

Dragon Age 2


Batman: Arkham City

And here are a handful I'll try to beat, time willing (all of these I have played through at least somewhat)

Tomb Raider


Sly Cooper 3

Assassin's Creed Revelations

And lastly the games I have on my Gamefly queue of which I'll probably get to three or so before the end of the year:

Beyond: Two Souls

Lost Planet 3

The Puppeteer

The Bureau

Killer Is Dead

And there are a dozen or two more that I have played but don't plan on finishing this year. I am actually doing pretty poorly this year. I usually beat around 40 games a year but this year I'll be lucky to hit 25.

This is just a list of the games I've beat so far. There are maybe 4 that I'm in the process of beating aside from these. Then there will be my annual winter break cram session where I beat as many games as I can.

  • Fire Emblem Awakening
  • Bioshock Infinite
  • Sim City
  • DMC
  • Tomb Raider
  • Injustice
  • The Last of Us
  • Gone Home
  • Pikmin 3
  • Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
  • GTA 5
  • Diablo 3 (Console Version)
  • Pokemon Y

I played a lot of older games this year. Did some good Bucket List work.

I beat all of these games..... Thought they were all great!

  • Dead Space 3
  • Bioshock Infinite
  • Tomb Raider
  • The Last Of Us
  • The Walking Dead: 400 days
  • GTA V
  • Papers, Please
  • Saints Row 4

I played a lot of games that I have misse over the past couple of years.... I only have one more game in the 360 and PS3 backlog, The Witcher 2! Hopefully I'll be able to finish it by the time November 22 rolls around.

I never bother with top ten lists, but for the last three years I've kept lists on what games I played throughout the year. It has eventually come to include games I didn't play during that particlar year, mostly because I had a LOT of backlog from 2012 this time around. I also think a significant number of the games I played this year might have been from 2012, can't be bothered to check right now though. If somebody wants to look though it's over here.

If I finish Pokemon I'm also hoping to dig into Fire Emblem or the new Phoenix Wright game before the end of the year.

There's also Super Mario 3D World, which looks cool and totally also counts as a major release that's coming out this year, btw.

I kind of always wanted to do something like this so I could definitively figure out a personal game of the year list. My level of investment in each game is also noted. If a game brings out the mad completionist in me, chances are it was a good one.

  • Retro City Rampage - Played briefly, didn't get into it
  • The Cave - Multiple plays to get all the achievements and coop play
  • Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch - Invested a fair amount of time, but didn't get close to finishing
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed - Demo (do they count)
  • Tomb Raider - Completed and found all the collectables
  • Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon - Borrowed from a friend, beat the game, but didn't go back as a completionist
  • BioShock Infinite - Multiple playthroughs and got most, if not all the pre-dlc achievments. Personal GOTY contender
  • Guacamelee! - Bought it twice, but I never beat the final boss or a particularly hard side-thing. Personal GOTY contender
  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon - Beat it, went completionist on bases and collectables
  • Dust 514 - Played briefly to satisfy my curiosity.
  • Marvel Heroes - Same as Dust 514
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Still playing, this game won't let me go.
  • The Last of Us - Completed. GOTY contender.
  • Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons - Completed and cleared achievements.
  • Mario & Luigi: Dream Team - Only a few hours in and fell off. I hope to return to it, just like every other Mario & Luigi game.
  • DuckTales: Remastered - Completed, and I think I found most of the stuff in it.
  • Saints Row IV - Completed and I got ALL those blue glowies.
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD - I've beat it many times on the Game Cube, but I collected all the stuff in this version again for giggles. Didn't bother with the Boss.
  • Batman: Arkham Origins - I just finished the game and collected all the Riddler packs. I won't be playing new game plus, multiplayer or challenge maps.

The following games I hope to eventually get to.

  • Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
  • Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen - I'll give it a shot since it'll be on PS+ this month.
  • Monaco: What's Yours is Mine
  • Dragon's Crown
  • Papers, Please
  • Rayman Legends
  • The Wonderful 101
  • The Wolf Among Us
  • Rocksmith 2014
  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Contrast
  • Super Mario 3D World
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
  • Gunpoint - Ashamed to say I bought it, but haven't played it yet.
  • Stealth Inc. – A Clone in the Dark - Same as Gunpoint

Man, those are some impressive lists! I bought and played:

  • Tomb Raider
  • Reus
  • Dust: An Elysian Tail (PC)
  • Brütal Legend (PC)
  • Company of Heroes 2
  • Solforge
  • Warframe
  • Civ V: Brave New World

Yeah, I really did play a lot of older games this year. Civ 5, CoH2 and, to some extent, Solforge being significant timesinks didn't help either. Good problem to have.

So this list doesn't include everything I've purchased, but does include games I've at least started. This year I definitely bought more games this time around, but that's a double-edged sword. Bought more games, but didn't have the time to play nearly all of them to completion (and a few PC games I have don't really run on my laptop so they were purchased in case I ever get a good gaming PC/were included in a bundle of games I can actually play).

Jesus, this thread makes me feel inadequate.

Injustice, GTAV, Monaco, Marvel Heroes, Solforge. And that's like twice as many new games as I played last year.
