Jonathan's Top 5 Games of 2013

I’m continually amazed each year by the kinds of stories that videogames are willing to tell and the worlds they can create. 2013 is no different. From para-dimensional offices to post-apocalyptic Russia to a computer simulation in a computer simulation to a vacation house by the sea, this has been a phenomenal year to be part of the gaming community. but there are always too many game to play. When I think of what it means to be game of the year, I think of games that embodies the idea of “must play.” They’re games that no matter what genre, no matter what platform, they should be experiences by everyone. No games I’ve played in 2013 meet that description quite like these do.

The Backlog: Alpha Protocol

Alpha Protocol is a game that has always intrigued me with its premise and it's ambition. It sounded like a dream combination: Obsidian's talent for writing mixed with a cocktail of Bond, Bourne, and Bauer. Despite my love for RPGs, I unfortunately passed over the game at it's release due to the poor initial response. I decided to give the game a shot after reading a couple of interesting threads about it.
