Game of the Year 2013

MediaStinger: "2013 was yet another great year for gamers. It was a year packed with heavy-hitting triple-A titles, most of which were cranked out in order to either beat or accompany the launch of next-gen systems. But while there were a ton of hits, one game easily stood out from the rest as not only the best of the year, but the best of a generation." (BioShock: Infinite, Dota 2, Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Super Mario 3D World, The Last Of Us, Tomb Raider)

BioShock and TLOU both hit me hard, in very similar ways and very different ways.

However, The Last of Us let me with something more. I just think it was better executed in terms of both gameplay and emotional storytelling. After having followed both relentlessly prior to release, BioShock, as brilliant as it was, was more of a let down (the things they cut out).

I adored both though.

TLOU, if you haven't played it your bat**** crazy. I thought I'd hate it.... I have never loved being completely wrong.

Why did you think u'd hate it? Isnt that a bit hyperbolic?

I've never been a fan of over the shoulder games is really why I didn't suspect I would be into the game. In TLOU I immediately just stopped caring about ots because they did it well enough I didn't really notice it. Most other OTS horror games I have played like the RE series after 4 lost my interest after an hour or two. I find survival horror way more fun in first person because it feels more immersive towards the player not a tom Clancy wannabe camera angle that separates your senses from the experience. This is all my opinion and should be taken as that I am not saying RE5 and games of the sort are bad I just have a per peeve of playing OTS is all.

I loved TLOU! It had a great story and the voice acting was so well executed. I loved the brutal tactics involved in taking people out. The idea of using thrown objects to distract or attract your enemies was genius. I found this title truly entertaining! I hope we have a couple of titles just as fun for the next generation!
