Joseph's Top 5 Games of 2013

2013 had its fair share of disappointments, but overall it’s been a great year for games, no matter where you look. While we had two major console launches, and long awaited games like Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us finally released, I once again found myself most impressed and excited by the games I wasn’t expecting. It seemed like interesting titles were coming out of nowhere, to the point where (despite my best efforts) I just couldn’t keep up at all. However, the games I did play offered a great amount of variety, ranging from endlessly replayable strategy games, to short and succinct indie experiences.

Hiram's Top 5 Games of the Year

It was a great year for games if you knew where to look. There’s always a feeling on these transition years that there isn’t really much to look for in the way of major releases, but this year more than any other, indie and handheld games really came out and showed you that if you’re just playing on the home consoles, you’re going to be missing out on some pretty good stuff.

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.
