My final(maybe?) game of the year list for 2013. I didn't get to play Rayman Legends or A Link Between Worlds yet so this list is subject to change. Also may get Brothers and other games on the steam sale. Suffice it to say that I feel good about this list in general. I wish I had more space for more games!

List items

  • The game I've spent the most time with this year. A game that has brought me absolute satisfaction and absolute misery. Dota 2 isn't just a game, it's a huge commitment to play as it requires all of your attention. I only played Dota 2 this year thanks to Brad Shoemaker so thank you and fuck you for making me spend over 700 hours on one game this year. You're probably why I'm not doing so well in school, but it was still worth it to dedicate my whole being to a near perfect game. Dota 2 is the most fun I've had with any multiplayer game in my entire life. It's deep balance and polish stand out from other MOBAs. This comes from someone who doesn't play a lot of multiplayer games. Nevertheless, Dota 2 is an incredible game that can only truly be appreciated if you submit yourself to it. Dota 2 is my game of the year.

  • The Last of Us is an incredible breakthrough in both triple A games and older games that weren't as easy as games are these days. The Last of Us is challenging by letting you take our enemies in whatever way you wish to. Using stealth and smart tactics are the way to go in most cases but you can try to shoot everything despite your limited amount of ammo. The story and characters of the last of us are dark, intense, and very real. The Last of Us isn't trying to be a huge epic story like the Uncharted series that Naughty Dog has made this generation. It's a personal story about two people in a post apocalyptic world that has been taken over by nature. It's a truly great game.

  • Fire Emblem Awakening was the start of the year of the 3DS and it's a hell of a game. It was extremely polish game that was challenging and fun to play. The story is surprisingly competent for a strategy RPG. It has a lot of great mechanics but the ability to marry your party members in order to make strong future children is brilliant. Music's kickass too.

  • A late but great edition to my list. It's more than just nostalgia but it certainly benefits it. It's a great playing game with a new renting items mechanic that makes each fighting encounter with tough enemies far more important than they have ever been in a Zelda game.

  • Saints Row 4 is a game that just wants you to have fun with overpowered super powers while listening to Riff Raff on the radio. It has the greatest soundtrack of any game with the addition of The Touch cementing it into the heavens of video gaming. It's an audacious game that is too similar to Saints Row: The Third most of the times. Who wants to drive cars around an open world when you can simply fly anywhere you want to?

  • Who doesn't love killing Metal Gears with an electric sword?

  • I adore the Phoenix Wright games so much that I had to put on Dual Destinies to my list. Ace Attorney 5 looks great on the 3DS and the story is excellent. The music continues to be fantastic as is tradition for the Ace Attorney games. I don't have any objections with putting this on my list.

  • Gunpoint is a fantastic stealth game with a well written story. The hook line mechanic is simply ingenious and led to a lot of great situations to solve.

  • Guacamelee! plays like a classic Metroidvania game and does with style. The combat is a great mix of brawler and old school beat'em ups. It's a lot of fun and as a ton of collectables to get in order to power up your luchador.

  • A rare game that combines both story and mechanics to create a memorable ending that you won't soon forget.
