Best Art Direction of 2013

gamReview's Joseph Trotter: "Anybody notice an award missing from our usual Game of the Year categories? Like Charles I and his head, Graphics Technology has been cut off from the body of categories because it had fallen foul of the gamrReview Rump Parliament. Rather than glorifying the sheer power of the gaming machine as we enter a generation where technical prowess is a given, we would prefer to celebrate the way this technology is used by the talented artists and directors who permeate the industry. If gaming is ever to convince the wider world that there is indeed artistic credibility within this media form, then it could do worse than put forward some of 2013's wonderful examples."

Great choices. All the titles are gorgeous in their art direction. And congrats to the winner (won't spoil it, worry not).

I will, kind of, I think Tearaway should have got it. It's the only game where the art direction impacts the game in a meaningful way. The others are good but I think Tearaway raised the bar

I think they should have did Mario 3D world or Pikmen.

Glad that game won; its probably one of the best platformers in the past couple of years, and the art style only helped it along.
Its a shame that it didn't get better sales by going multiplatform, though...

All of them could have won and I would be satisfied. Nice list and fantastic games !

Guacamelee deserves a nomination.
