    Which game would you say was the best?

    The best game I played last year was Far Cry 3, but I realize this was a 2012 release!

    The best 2013 release I have played was probably Bioshock Infinite.

    BUT, I have not played The Last Of Us yet, so my vote may change in a few months!

    Bioshock Infinite is the only 2013 game I bought in 2013.

    A good game overall. I feel the story is overated and is no where near the depth of the original Bioshocks. Gun play isn't as good either IMO and the vigors, to me, felt out of place. Probably one of the pretiest games I own and the sound effects are awesome.

    Hmm, going to have to go with Last of Us, with Bioshock Infinite being close second.

    The Last of Us was the best game I've played last gen. Only games that comes close to TLoU was Demon & Dark Souls.

    Haven't started playing it until late but the last of us is definitely up there.

    Honorable mention also goes to arkham origins and Bioshock infinite.

    Grand theft auto 5 is better than previous versions but just doesn't capture me enough to sit down and finish it. It just isn't as good as it's made out to be.

    And another great one is splinter cell blacklist, it's just HARD AS ****!

    2013 had to be one of the best years for me as a gamer.

    It's a toss up between The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite and Grand Theft Auto 5.

    I think The Last of Us had the biggest impact on me, but Bioshock was just a joy to play and GTAV was just a monster game.

    Here's my top 10. I was surprised at the ratio of indies to AAA titles, but 2013 was a great year for indie games, and I acquired nearly 100 games from Steam sales/Humble bundles, etc in the last year. Anyway, here we go.

    1. Kentucky Route Zero (cheating a bit, as it's not all out yet and will likely top my 2014 list also)
    2. The Stanley Parable
    3. Bioshock Infinite
    4. The Last of Us
    5. Papers, Please
    6. The Wolf Among Us (see entry 1)
    7. Grand Theft Auto V
    8. Don't Starve
    9. XCOM: Enemy Within (technically a DLC but it adds so much to the main game that I'll allow it)
    10. Beyond: Two Souls

    GTA V on xbox360 and Assassins Creed: Black Flag on PC. Lots of stuff to do and a nice mix of AC typical stealth, piracy and other things.

    Bioshock ws utterly disappointing with a gameplay so linear that it was almost insulting. And the world seemed incredibly dead, no matter how much I like the steampunk theme.
