Is 2013 Gaming’s Greatest Year Ever?

WC - "I remember around February of this year, I read an article that stated 2013 would be a boring year for gaming. At the time of reading, I thought to myself how stupid that was, seeing as how Bioshock: Infinite, God of War: Ascension, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Gears of War: Judgement, Tomb Raider, The Last of Us, Grand Theft Auto V and more were all due out this year!" (BioShock: Infinite, Culture, Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

It's got to be up there as one of the great years that's for sure. With GTA V, Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Rayman Legends, Wind Waker HD and 2 new console releases there was a lot to be excited about.

Also, given the all around great games from indies and just new ways of general gameplay that is on the rise throughout this year.

So yes, AMAZING year. Nothing short of gaming stamina.

How does Wind Waker HD qualify to make that list? lol
Neonridr  +   520d ago
why shouldn't it, have you seen the review scores of the game by any chance? Have you even played the game to justify that comment? Please enlighten us all and explain why it SHOULDN'T be on that list?

Because it is just an higher res version of an older game.

I'm not saying anything bad about it, it's just not a game that belongs in a list concerning 2013.

The Last of Us and GTA V two of the best ever imo.
MR123_C  +   520d ago
I think 2011 was the best year. Skyrim, battlefield 3, infamous 2 and dark souls.

Bio shock last of us gt5 beyond 2 souls killzone shadowfall bf4 it's a great year

I hate to point out the obvious, but with the constant improving off technology, every year is the best gaming year yet as it happens. It goes without saying to the extent that anyone thinking it needs to be stated may be mentally handicapped.

Coffee tastes like coffee.

huh? Just because tech gets better doesn't mean games get better.

Some of the best games ever created are 15+ years old now. Half Life, Ocarina of Time, Mario 64 are 3 games that deserve to be way up on the list and were all created in the 90s.

"Just because tech gets better doesn't mean games get better."

Actually, yes it does.

It takes nothing away from classic games, or replay-ability.

I guess if you are referring to graphics and game world sizes, then yes, games get better with newer tech. But having more horsepower does little to aid in the creativity of gaming. A pretty game can still be a $hitty game.
