    GTA V out of this list. But Assassin's Creed 4 is insanely huge. 30 hours in, still playing that thing...

    TLoU should be game of the month, nothing more. Played it, traded it. No replay value, I'm still playing GTA online with my friends and will be well into the new year. Definitely game of the year. For that point.

    Guess ill vote tomb raider since dmc isnt on here.
  • thewebslinger - December 14, 2013 2:43 p.m.

    Can't believe I'm going to say this given my past feelings on the series, but GTA5. Though Tomb Raider and Last of Us are tied for a very close second.

    Toss up between GTA and Bioshock, I went with GTA.

    This year was an incredible year for gaming and, like always, I wasn't able to give every notable release the attention they deserve. That did not make it any easier to pick between the masterpieces I did play, like Bioshock Infinite, Grand Theft Auto V, Pokemon X & Y, The Last of Us, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, etc. In the end, I think my choice for Game of the Year would have to be The Last of Us, although Bioshock Infinite came very close. I hate categorizing games into "Best" or "Top" lists, so we should just enjoy every game we have the chance to play.

    That last sentence of yours nails it to massive homerun
  • Mateus7 - December 16, 2013 1:04 p.m.

    Thank you, you're quite awesome yourself. :)

    Fire Emblem is my GOTY, followed by Pokemon. Bravely Default just released over here, so its been a fine year for my 3DS.

    My two favorite games this year were Metro Last Light and Payday 2. Payday had amazingly challenging co-op and was very satisfying when you figured out the stealth nothing beats payday with friends. Both games are great

    At first I thought "Well it's not even close, The Last of Us is easily the best game of 2013". Then I thought about it a bit more and remembered how ridiculously awesome Bioshock : Infinite's story is, and it became a lot tighter than I expected. But I think The Last of Us still comes out one top, but only just.

    I don't even need to think about it, unlike previous years, this time i can say without hesitation that Last of Us was my game of the year, just a fantastic game trough and trough that pushed the envelop in all the areas it could be pushed. The seamless mix and switch between stealth and combat worked much more gracefully than in any other game i had played before, it's easily the most gorgeous looking game released on 7th gen consoles so far, All the characters, even when considered side-characters had tons of personality and left a big impression, and it's easily one of the most mature, challenging, smart stories told trough gaming up do date. So yes, game of the year, by far.

    It also shows how Naughty Dog has grown as a developer. Ever since back then with Crash Bandicoot, Jack and Daxter, and now with Uncharted and Last of Us that they keep bringing new and amazing experiences. It makes you wonder if The Last of Us will be a running series or just a one game champion.
  • BladedFalcon - December 13, 2013 11:23 p.m.

    Y'know, part of me definitely would like to see more of that world.... Yet I feel the story they crafted for it is so perfect as it is, that they might as well just move on. I mean, I can tell you that I DON'T want Joel and Ellie's stories continued, and well, the DLC will give us a little bit more to chew on. But to me, that's enough, some masterpieces are best left alone, without being run unto the ground as franchises.
  • shawksta - December 14, 2013 12:47 a.m.

    It would be for the best. Maybe now Naughty Dog can do another amazing experience for PS4.
  • BladedFalcon - December 14, 2013 5:32 a.m.

    Exactly, I'd rather they created new IPs rather than stay with known franchises... Which is why I wasn't that happy with the new Ucharted game announcement.
  • shawksta - December 14, 2013 8:52 a.m.

    They cant help it I guess, unlike Jack and Daxter, Uncharted stuck well. We'll see how it'll goes, so far everything is vague on what exactly its about.
  • Xtapolapopotamus - December 13, 2013 5:38 p.m.

    It's tough, but Last of Us for me. They're all great, but Last of Us was the only one to make me stop and think about what I was doing, and had moments that actually made me pause due to the tenseness of the situation. A certain encounter near the end of the winter chapter, for anyone wondering. A close runner up would be Super Mario 3D World. Not many games have made me smile that much. Everything about that game is happiness.
