Jon's Top 5 Games of 2013

2013 was the year I became “that guy”. I phased out of most main stream games as my move to the west coast meant leaving my consoles behind. Being armed with a laptop meant that a lot of the graphical powerhouses, like Assassin’s Creed IV and Saints Row 4, would have to wait until I built a PC of my own. In the mean time I became the guy that focused on indie games, and you know what? I liked them! I consider 2013 to be one of the best years in a long time as the games I played this year, as evident by my list, brought more fun, emotion, and provocative thoughts to my life than any gaming year has before.

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.
