3 Amazing games you may have missed in 2013

MMGN: While Game of the Year accolades are being marinated in a zesty lemon vinegar in preparation for their inevitable consumption, it’s worth taking a look at a select few of the unsung heroes of the year – the most novel games, or perhaps just those which for some reason or another didn’t sell very well but which were highly acclaimed nonetheless.

I'm enjoying Shadow Warrior right now! The story and whatnot might not be the best but the gameplay is madly satisfying (gory samurai-sword action). It's also a far less mentioned game than the ones in the article.

You mean you have heard how amazing Gone Home is?

Dystopian Games Inspired by Orwell's 1984

BLG writes: "Dystopian games are more relevant than ever in a day and age when the world seems to be getting progressively bleaker with each passing year. But dystopian fiction, in general, isn’t trying to make us depressed by showing us how much worse things could get.

A game that should absolutely be on this list is Disco Elysium. That game is wildly deep in the field of its take on social issues, politics, religion, morality, and the internal struggles of the human psyche.

Still haven't finished it but Disco Elysium is really great. I love the dark sense of humour.

I love dystopian settings in general. We happy few is an excellent game. It is basically a mash up of 1984 and the other dystopian classic Brave New World. The drug 'Joy' is essentially 'Soma' from Aldous Huxley's novel.

Orwell was surprisingly engrossing. I enjoyed it quite a bit more than I expected. I bought the sequel on Steam but haven't gotten around to playing it yet.

Don't need a game to experience Orwell. Real life follows it pretty well.
