Unofficial Game Of The Year Awards!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Was curious what your favourite games of the year were? If you were making awards who you would choose for 2013! You can make up any of your own categories: for example: best strategy game, best graphics, best supporting actress!

For me it would be:

#1 - hotline miami - l loved the weird david lynch/drive movie vibe as well as the tense action, i played on ps3 which came out in 2013 i think
#2 - last of us
#3 - XCOM Enemy Within - finally got me into xcom, tough learning curve for the base management I found but i get it now and love it

Honorable Mention - neo scavenger - its still in beta but this game is terrific, check out the demo I implore you! The violent encounters in this game were unsettling in their realism, and they're mostly text based, strange but true. Top notch writing.

I only game on PC so unfortunately cant comment on Platforms or titles outside of PC.

These are based on my personal preference and the games i have played this past year

Singleplayer GOTY - Bioshock Infinite : Cant understand the hate this game has received, i think it was one of the best stories and worlds ever created in gaming, and to me the combat was just as good as previous Bioshocks. I enjoyed this game so much after beating it i went back and replayed Bioshock one and 2, and plan on replaying Infinite soon.

Multiplayer GOTY - DOTA 2 : 300 hours and counting, need i say more... The polish, community involvement, F2P implementation, Esports implications, and scope of this game.... If you can only play one game, i cant think of a better title to sink your life into, there is just so much to this game and it is all done soooooo extremely well.

Best Graphics - Metro Last Light, close competition from Crysis 3 and BF4, but the environment and technical detail put into last light is astounding. Playing through this game i kept imagining what this team could do with a title that wasn't limited by the dark, apocalyptic environments of the metro. Imagine how beautiful a world like columbia could look if it was built on this engine.

Runners up - Tomb Raider / Rogue Legacy / The Stanley Parable / Skyrim (I know not a 2013 game, but created a new character to play all the DLC and quickly lost 70+ hours, forgot how much content is in that game)

I could go on, but those or some of the top titles i played this year.

My GOTY is Last of us. It was a tight race with GTAV but in the in last of us stuck in my head and I just kept thinking about it. I even bought the soundtrack.

Except the big one: my personal favorite game of the year is Underhell, followed by Metro: Last Light. But I haven't played Wasteland 2 yet, I'm waiting for its full release.
