gamrReview's Overall Game of the Year 2013

gamrReview's Karl Koebke: "It's been quite the year for gaming. Two new consoles have released with all the hype and hubbub that goes along with that, but perhaps not enough of the great exclusives that demand their purchase. The Wii U, meanwhile, is struggling to garner consumer backing but has brought the heat as far as games are concerned. Pokemon X & Y was the series' first true foray into 3D, topping off a great year for 3DS software. And Tearaway showed that all those unique PS Vita functionalities can be put to good use. All in all it's been a great year, and next year looks to be just as fun.

In order for a game to be considered for overall game of the year it had to win one of the platform awards. And now that the preliminaries are out of the way, on to the main event..." (3DS, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, Pokemon X and Y, PS Vita, PS3, Rayman Legends, Super Mario 3D World, Tearaway, Wii U, Xbox 360)

What horrible nominations

Where is Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider and especially The Last of Us.

Totally agree, SM3DW, GTA V both great and deserving. Good thing they didn't fall for the overhyped and overrated TLOU.

Good thing opinions are not facts.

Also interesting that the same could be said of the two games you mention, isn't it?

The games I mentioned have OODLES of gameplay and perfect control and design in case of SM3DW, and amazing story, design based on story and variety of gameplay possibilities in case of GTA V; both had huge amounts of content. While TLOU, being a great game overall, was lacking in what's most important: gameplay which was actually boring and derivative in many parts of the game and was just means to support the story which was completely ripped off from "The Road" movie. AI was shockingly bad and I hated the encounters with human enemies particularly in stealth.

Yes, it is game of the year, I have not played a more fun game since Super Mario Galaxy 2, and I think this game is better than that, I don't need fancy graphics, or hi tech specs to enjoy a game, it's all about the gameplay and no game on any system has better than mario 3d world, I don't care what the haters and critics say, This is my game of the year!
