We got ni no kuni, TLOU(GOTY), GTA V and Ps4. Yea it was a fantastic year especially for playstation gamers

It was a good year, in that it feels like gaming has finally become mainstream. It's not just for 15-40 y/o hobbyist guys anymore, everyone and their mother can game now. This will result in even a greater variety of games for both the PS4 and the X1.

Only downside to this is that it makes it hard to find a next-gen console :P

I think 2013 was a terrible year. Shattering older franchises with mediocre games, politically correct controversies, the usual DLC schemes and such.

2013 had it all, but 2014 seems to be much better. Time will tell if companies learned anything.

With The Last of Us, yes 2013 was best year for videogames !

Nope, 2010 was the best year imo.

God of War III, Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Alan Wake, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo 5, Halo Reach, Bioshock 2, Bayonetta...

2013 was great though with The Last of Us, GTA V, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite but sadly God of War: Ascension, Gears of War: Judgment, Beyond Two Souls & Gran Turismo 6 were all disappointing.

Looking forward to 2014!

Dlc and microtransactions going rampant ruined it for me...

2013 was a good year for PC.

I couldn't agree more.
Since generally moving away from consoles and back to pc, I've discovered the joys of discounted games.
Loads and loads of discounted games. Game bundles. Some really quality AAA stuff going super cheap and amazing indie stuff that makes all efforts on PS and XB look utterly lame.

XB1 and PS4 will have to do soooooo much more to tempt me back to consoles.

I completely agree. The prices for games on XBL and PSN are atrocious.
