Jumping on the GOTY bandwagon: My favourite games of 2013

Work in progress.

As normal, I missed out on a bunch of releases this year that I'm sure would have made the list had I played them. I got a PS3 this year and spent half of the year catching up on older PS3 exclusives that I missed the first time round, and forwent playing a bunch of more recent releases as a result. But here are my favourite games of 2013:

List items

  • Initially, The Stanley Parable struck me as a game that I'd rather watch someone else play than play myself. But I played the demo since so many people said so many great things about it, and I was instantly in love. Both the demo and the full game are an absolute joy from beginning to end. And end. And end. And end. That's why I place The Stanley Parable at number 8 on my list.

    Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight.

  • I haven't actually finished Rayman Legends yet. I'm not particularly close, either. But the Castle Rock level alone is enough for it to secure a high place on my list. My absolute favourite gaming moment of the year was the split second that I came to the realization of what was going on in that level. I played it 5 or 6 times in a row with a massive grin on my face each time, and every time I boot the game I'm tempted to just play Castle Rock over and over. To make a 3-4 minute level that brings so much joy over and over again, is true genius.

    The rest of the game is super cool too. Castle Rock is the best part of an amazing game.

  • Came out on PC in 2013, so it counts.

  • Kinda came out this year. Came on Steam this year. Does that count? I'm clutching at straws here trying to figure out 10 2013 releases that I've played.

  • Because I'm struggling to think of 10 games that came out this year that I've played. I mean, FIFA is fun. I like FIFA. I've played a decent amount of FIFA this year. But it's still just FIFA. This wouldn't ordinarily get a place on my list

I need to play more of Monaco I just needed to play with more people I know rather than just random people. It always felt like a Benny Hill skit whenever playing that game.

Congrats on choosing FIFA 14--on PS3? Next-gen it looks/plays even greater, I have to say, though.
