Joel's Top 5 Games of 2013

2013 is such a weird year to write about my favorite games. For all but one of my Top 5 games, the console in which I played these games is no longer hooked up. That just goes to show that developers have learned to develop for these older consoles and put out some truly remarkable and memorable experiences. We can only hope it doesn’t take developers another seven years to put out the high quality of games that we got this year for the new consoles.

Demos are an odd feature of the gaming industry. Some say that demos give us that early tease of a game we’re looking forward to or help us decide whether a game is for us or not. Others argue that game demos don’t show enough of a game to give the player the right idea about the game, or worse they give away too much and make the game feel obsolete. Think back to your times playing demos, if you do, and think about how many games you’ve purchased after playing the demo. I know that personally I’ve only bought one game in recent memory after playing the demo.
