Rev3Games - We're almost at the end of 2013, so it's time for Adam Sessler to reflect on his favorite games of the year.
I was a bit surprised to see a few solid picks among the overhyped AAA-budget fare that's required to be in these lists to appease the LCD audience.
Is he trying to be hip and cool by picking games that others don't pick? something "surprising". gtfo
who the hell cares what he thinks?
I used to think he was okay until he got so bent out of shape over the name of a freaking trophy. He can buzz off.
he's been loosing a lot of credibility as of late
Who cares what you think of what he thinks?
Who cares what you think of what he thinks he thinks ;)
I don't think anyone is surprised by his GOTY after the whole god of war fiasco revealed that he is a SJW. I used to respect this guy, too.
It wasn't a "fiasco," it was a bunch of internet people blowing things out of proportion.
@MidnytRain Well, when a "professional" reviewer let's his opinion of a game get affected by the name of a trophy, it's pretty unprofessional and calls into question his mental stability.
Interesting because he is actually the one that blew things out of proportion all over a trophy....and here he is praising GTA five and even shows a clip of Trevor talking about how he banged a junkie. Dude is hypocrite and a bit of a drama queen
He brought it up for 10 seconds in his review and people decided to make articles about it. The fact that it was an exclusive made it worse.
excuse my ignorance, but whats SWJ?
SJW = social justice warrior. http://www.urbandictionary....
Suppose its a personal preference but Bioshock Infinite ? oh dear.
Gone home! Such a unique game. What a great year for indie games, Gone Home,Stanley Parable,Papers please, and you can only play them on the best platform for indie games, PC
Look at those HAM CHAPS on his face!!!!!
Don't people normally call them Lamb Chops or Mutton Fillets?
lol yeah my lil brother said "ham chaps" once and it just sounds so damn funny it has kinda stuck with me
Time for N4G to blow up and get rustled over ONE guys opinion. I'll admit I find this guy to be such a white knight after that trophy scenario. I strongly disagree with his list in regards to Forza 5, A game that much of a grind with micro transactions at a $60/£45 price tag is not deserving of being there. GTA V I found to be very overrated with the only really stand out thing being Steven Ogg as Trevor. Will have to try Gone Home
Actually looking back on GTAV, I too think its overrated. The main story is great, but I didn't find the side missions to be very compelling. It fell into the same trap as Skyrim. A huge detailed world means very little if the side missions aren't compelling enough. And that online mode....smh Best game I've played this year is The Last of Us.
I can't say what the defacto best game I have played this year is.... The last of us is certainly up there, Outlast is definitely up there and was the most memorable play through for me of all SP campaigns this year mainly because it scared the crap out of me. War Thunder would be my favourite MP of the Year probably along with Natural selection II. So hard to choose so I can't, guess I will just have to go with a pool of games I enjoyed in 2013.
haven't played Gone Home, but I know I should, pretty sure it will be on Steam winter sale the next few days
Social Warrior of Justice....
A PC exclusive indie game is his goty? Refreshing and brave pick
Bros before foes.
WTF is Forza doing on the list.
Ni no kuni is in my top 10 list. Seems to be a little overlooked....
The problem with The Last of Us, is that other games pale in comparison. This is my GOTY. Also Ni No Kuni & Tomb Raider reboot. Worse game Doom BFG. Just plain pants.
