Capsule Computers 2013 Game of the Year Awards

Each year, we as a team come together and have to make the brutal decisions of defining the best of the best. It sounds difficult, but in all honesty, the development teams make it easy by delivering quality products that we get to consume each year – and these awards are our way of paying proper tribute.

Which titles went that extra mile to please? What experiences left us in reflection? These are the games that will live on past a generation as they offered a form of entertainment greater than our currency. This is the Game of the Year Awards for 2014, so join us as we celebrate greatness yet again! (Gears of War Judgment, Industry, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2, Pokemon X and Y, Super Mario 3D World, Tearaway, The Last Of Us)

Awesome list. Hope to see even better come out of 2014!

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. How on earth is One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 the PS3 GOTY!?

Also - Papers, Please? as PC GOTY? I mean, I know it got some praise from various outlets but...the GOTY? Really?

...apart from that, I approve. Gears Judgment seemed a bit weak for the choice though.

True, but there are not a ton of Xbox 360 exclusives to go off of.
Ezz2013  +   371d ago
i don't understand that too
since they just give TLOU GOTY
why not best ps3 game too ?

it's the same thing from VGX give ND Studio of the year and yet give GTaV GOTY
i hate when sites do this

you make a good point, but spreading the love makes for a more varied piece.

I believe if u read the rules they state that the same game cannot win twice, so if it wins in a higher category such as The Last Of Us winning "Game Of The Year" I will not win in the Best PS3 category and runner up takes its place. A fair call really.

I have to agree that I really don't see how One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 won, even with Last of Us getting the whole GotY award that doesn't seem to fit at all.

Yay, some recognition for Ni no Kuni! Here's hoping for a sequel.

Seems like a terrible year for the 360 IMO. A write-off of a console during 2013.

PC had some real gems but all the major titles like Company of Heroes 2 and Rome 2 were disappointing.

A fighting game as PS3 GOTY? While fun, I'm not so sure. At the end of all things, opinions abounds.

The Last Of Us truly deserves to win for sure
koga88  +   371d ago
Glad to see a lot of love for Ni no Kuni and Project X Zone in those few categories. Not a big fan of the console winners though as Gears of War was really terrible compared to past games.

Well deserved it was an amazing game that kept me coming back longer than any other game last year.

Still pissed that Beyond: Two Souls is being unfairly ignored.
