So, time for a "year in review" thread. What games did you have the most fun playing this year? And since not everyone plays new releases immediately, let's not restrict it to titles released in 2013. Here's my list:
Dishonored -- A 2012 game, but I didn't play it until January of this year. I love a game that not only supports, but actively encourages both stealthy and noisy playthroughs.
Spec Ops: The Line --Another 2012 game, a military shooter that actually makes you think about the role of violence in video games. This one really stuck with me.
The Last of Us -- An obvious choice, perhaps, but I can't deny that this was a fantastic gaming experience. It's not a love story in the conventional sense, but it is definitely about Joel and Ellie's love for each other.
Tearaway -- An absolute delight, from beginning to end. Not only does the papercraft world look fabulous, but the storyline is really great, too. The integration of the various Vita controls into gameplay was ingenious and never felt forced; I think platformers on the PS4 could take a lesson on its use of the gyroscope.
Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut -- Wacky humor and psychosexual trauma side by side. Technically primitive, but it's a game that I'll remember.
