The top three video games of 2013 . . . so far

DailyNews: "There will be a brand-new "Call of Duty" franchise called "Ghosts." And a hot new "Battlefield" game. And the latest game in the "Assassin's Creed" series. And an exciting new franchise, "WatchDogs." And two brand-new consoles. But 2013 has already been a great year for video games, and the big finish to the end of the year shouldn't obscure that. So before the end comes, let's take a look at the top games of the beginning of 2013." (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, The Last Of Us, Tomb Raider 2013, Xbox 360)

all three of them are great games but my opinion is that the last of us is game of the year
FlunkinMonkey  +   787d ago
Easily game of the year for me... (so far)

Same. I keep expecting something to just slip in at the last minute (something no-one would expect) but The Last of Us has taking the crown at the moment

GtA instead of Tomb Raider. Although there are still many great games coming.
Jubez187  +   787d ago
i didn't even read your comment but TALES FTW
Hicken  +   787d ago
Yeah, so far, Tales is my GOTY. TLOU and Ni no Kuni are both really good, though, and deserving of mention, in my book.

I'd have trouble narrowing down the best games of 2013 to ten, or even twenty. This year has been AWESOME.

And it's not over yet.

And 2014 looks to be even better.
Ezz2013  +   787d ago
agree with you
this year have been very awesome
dare i say the best year this gen at least for me

I've never heard of GTAV either, that makes two of us in the entire world.
SmokingMonkey  +   787d ago
The Last of Us = GOTY

Because their multiplayer online works.

1st party dedicated servers for the win!

I really loved(for the most part) the multiplayer.

If I were in charge of design I would have not allowed things like armor(ugh). Though that's just my preference. The game is exceptional.

On a separate, but not unrelated topic: Have you played the demo of Beyond: Two Souls?

I guess I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Heavy Rain because the gameplay(yes, the gameplay) kind of blew me away.

I didn't allow myself to finish the demo because at that moment I decided to pre-order it today. Which I did. (free upgrade to special edition at least at gamestop)

There are so many superb games this year.

As far as what I personally look for in a game, I think the only game that can challenge TLoU is Beyond: Two Souls. I have no Earthly idea how they compare(for obvious reasons).

At least as far as ps3 exclusives go, I think these two will go neck and neck.

is it really awesome?... i keep hear that alot

OT: The Last Of Us still my game of the gen
but i still can't wait for Batman AO,Beyond two souls,GT6,MGSV,lord of shadows 2

No contest: The Last of Us. Easily the best game EVER.
ALARM-clock  +   787d ago
I would go as far as to include The Last of Us on a Game of the Generation list.

1. The Last of Us
2. Bioshock
3. Portal 2

excellent choices, tho i have yet to play bioshock. tomb raider and the last of us are easily two of my favorite games this generation.
MadMax  +   787d ago
Need to take TLOU out and replace it with GTA5!
jwe1004  +   787d ago
I really hope that was a joke...
MadMax  +   787d ago
Do i sound like im joking? That game was very overrated. It was slow and kinda boring to me. Alot of tredging around underground dark tunnels. Got about 70% through and felt ive done this all before.

Game was all story, but gameplay was just too slow. Ive also been hearing many critics lately saying the same thing i just stated! Dead Space 3 or GTA 5 should be on this list instead of another Uncharted type game! Ive played one too many games maybe, but i just wasnt moved by it!
rigbybot127  +   787d ago
The Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite, definitely. Tomb Raider? Replace that with GOTY GTA V, and we're all set.
skydragoonity  +   787d ago
Last of us is the undisputed game of the year, 2 of my xbox friends played this game & they said their lives have changed. Unsurprisingly they are both getting a ps4.

TLOU is one of the best game this gen. Hands down my GOTY.
Pintheshadows  +   787d ago
I'd personally have TLOU, Metro Last Light and GTA5 on my list.
nooneknows  +   787d ago
Awesome! GOTY, IMO is The Last Of Us.
abusador  +   787d ago
Tlou and Imo it isn't tht close. This Game gripped meeee and didn't release m.
georgenancy  +   787d ago
it seems to me the gta 5 hype has finally fizzled out good,game was awesome but not a masterpiece as stated by the gaming media
AnotherProGamer  +   787d ago
I'm going to get a lot of hate for this but BioShock Infinite wasn't that good of a game.

The gameplay was a step down from BioShock and the story was a clusterfuck and full of plot holes.
testsubject  +   786d ago
That list is exclactly the way my GOTY list is, but Beyond:Two Souls might make its way in there mext week :)
