For me, it was The Last of Us. What's yours?

#2 Posted by freedomfreak (40870 posts) -

Tomb Raider.

GTAV was about the only one that could change it, but it didn't.

TLoU was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the topic title, so it must be that. It managed to make me care about the story and characters in a video game. No small feat, that. Gameplay was good too, total package, must play.

#5 Edited by TheEroica (13690 posts) -

Tough this year... Tlou was amazing. Though I took issue with some things. gtaV really nailed it... Ac4 came out of nowhere to be ridiculously addicting... Ugh dragon's crown was soooo good. and then theres glorous resogun mm, right now I'd say gta I think.

#6 Posted by Doom_HellKnight (12202 posts) -

The Last of Us. Tomb Raider would be a close second for me, personally.

#7 Posted by Tonindo (473 posts) -

Right now it's probably The Last of Us, but I'm playing Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and that game has a serious chance of becoming my game of the year. Also, there's still Mario left.

#8 Posted by HarlockJC (25546 posts) -

Right now Zelda...I have Mario as well. I am going to get though Zelda first, so my opinion might change.

  1. Assassin's Creed 4
  2. TLOU
  3. Bioshock Infinite
  4. Tomb Raider
  5. GTA V

That said I have mostly played 2012 games this year, so my backlog is big.

#10 Posted by Lord_Omikron666 (4768 posts) -

Metal Gear Rising

#11 Posted by Telekill (4685 posts) -

The Last of Us took my personal GOTY for the incredible story telling and interesting gameplay. Tomb Raider was a close second though. They did an incredible job rebooting the franchise and did it in a way that was exactly what needed to be done. After playing various games that came out with bow mechanics, TR's bow mechanics are the best IMO and just playing fun. Also satisfying when you hit some jerk in the eye with an arrow.

The Last of Us was mine as well

but im sure GTA:V will win

#14 Posted by _Matt_ (8924 posts) -

The Last of Us or Tomb Raider...

Really tough to decide between the two.

I think I will go with The Last of Us.

#15 Edited by locopatho (20345 posts) -

GTAV, The Last Of Us, Bioshock Infinite, and probably Link Between Worlds (once I play it properly) are all up there for me. Mario 3D Land sounds fantastic as well. Great year for gaming, yet again :D

#16 Posted by SuperCowElitist (730 posts) -

My Game of the Year;

Killzone Shadow Fall
Knack
The Last of us
Puppeteer
COD:Ghost 1080p+60fps
Assassins Creed Black Fla 1080p+60fps+Exclusive content
Rachet and Clank: Into nexus

Still No Mentions of Arkham Origins and Splinter Cell Blacklist ?

I'm guessing nobody played them.

#18 Posted by PAL360 (26925 posts) -

GTAV, but Bioshock Infinite is close.

Arkham Origins is a good game, but it's not GOTY material.

#20 Posted by Postal_Guy (2643 posts) -

If AC4 continues to be super awesome, im going for that

#21 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (13589 posts) -

@ Doom_HellKnight

Thats a Steaming Pile of Crap and you know it. Explain to me how a game that copied that the formula that made its predecessors GOTY winners not be GOTY material ? Whatever bad/good things have to say about Origins will most definately apply to Arkham City, this is a scenario were more of the same is a plus. go ahead, I got all night ! :p

#22 Posted by -RPGamer- (34283 posts) -

I would say Tomb Raider with a close second place for ACIV.

#23 Posted by cainetao11 (17692 posts) -

GTA5. Runners up: Blacklist, Arkham, Metro Last light, TLOU

#24 Posted by FlamesOfGrey (7511 posts) -

The Last Of Us. It probably would've been Sen No Kiseki but I can't understand most of it yet lol.

You gotta be on the Sony payroll

I'm there with ya bro. Blacklist and Arkham were stellar imo.

#26 Posted by starjet905 (1936 posts) -

Assassin's Creed IV.

I loved Bioshock Infinite when I played it, but somehow people kept pointing out all the things wrong with it after I completed it, and then I saw them myself, and since I just don't find the game that good anymore. It's really weird and hard to explain, and somehow it has only ever happened in this way to Bioshock for me; it went from my GOTY all the way down to 'eh, it was alright' in a short space of time.

I had somehow totally forgotten about Blacklist.

Love it, I cannot say if it's my game of the year or not though, since I am yet to complete it; but it's certainly up there.

#29 Edited by seanmcloughlin (38216 posts) -

People nominating Tomb Raider and ACIV? :/ What is this?

My vote goes to TLOU

#30 Posted by ShepardCommandr (2732 posts) -

GTA V is the only correct answer.

#31 Edited by bbkkristian (14955 posts) -

Fire Emblem Awakening without a doubt.

#32 Edited by cainetao11 (17692 posts) -

@Lord_Omikron666 said:

Metal Gear Rising

Well said. I'll have to add that to my runners up list, but GTA 5 is still King imo.

#33 Edited by Pikminmaniac (9036 posts) -

My candidates are

-Pikmin 3

-Super Mario 3D World

-Rayman Legends

All examples of superb gameplay and immaculate design coupled with satisfying challenge (my criteria for a great game)

Honourable mentions: AC4, DMC, ALBW

That's why i usually ignore those 'let's hate good games because it's cool' threads :p

I beat it twice (one on normal and the other on hard) explored every corner, heard every side conversation to learn the lore and story, and that's how i'll remember the game. It does have some plot holes, but no game is perfect.

#35 Posted by hayato_ (5014 posts) -

Beyond: Two Souls

Its my personal GOTY

I haven't played AC4 yet. Playing Need for Speed Rivals right now. GTA V's online screwed that package up for me and the ending to"The Last of Us" left me kind of angry

#36 Posted by Maddie_Larkin (6558 posts) -

My pick would be between

AssCreed 4

GTA 5

Super Mario 3D world

The Legend of Zelda: A link between Worlds (yep a handheld game is in the running)

Tomb Raider

The odd omission is TLoU, while I recognise that it is a good game, I can not bring myself to like it for some reason.

#37 Posted by mems_1224 (47229 posts) -

Hmmmm....tough choice between Bioshock Infinite, Fire Emblem, TLOU and GTAV. I haven't played Link Between Worlds yet and Im sure that will be up there.

Haha, but that's the weird thing, people can normally pick apart any game in front of me, even my favourites like Dark Souls, and I will still happily play the game and still be a favourite, even if I understand where they're coming from....

Just Bioshock Infinite.... I have no idea why that's different.

#39 Posted by TheEroica (13690 posts) -

@seanmcloughlin: I go off straight enjoyment... Ac4 is easily one of the most enjoyable games I've played in 2013... It would be a crime if I DIDNT mention it. :P I want to pick Zelda ALBW but I decided to save it for my kids for xmas... Moments like passing off a Zelda game that good to my kids is too important to not make a spectacle of.

#40 Posted by Netret0120 (2195 posts) -

TLOU

GTAV

AC4

#41 Posted by dvalo9 (1280 posts) -

Tlou is the first thing that comes to mind so i guess it would be that. next up was bioshock infinite

#42 Posted by megaspiderweb09 (3686 posts) -

TLOU

Fire emblem:awakening

#44 Edited by foxhound_fox (88651 posts) -

It's not time yet. It's only November 24th. I'll tell you January 1st, 2014.

These are the games in the running though:

- DmC: Devil May Cry
- Grand Theft Auto V (incomplete)
- Batman: Arkham Origins (incomplete)

The only one I've greatly enjoyed was DmC. So it'll probably end up being my GOTY, sadly enough.

#45 Edited by CloudStrife213 (430 posts) -

Bioshock Infinite.

#46 Edited by Mickeyminime (1130 posts) -

GTA 5

#47 Edited by wolverine4262 (19376 posts) -

Tomb Raider.

Even though I have put over 150 hours into GTA, I found Tomb Raider to be a pretty special experience. It does so much right and feels incredibly fresh.

#48 Edited by Nonstop-Madness (9483 posts) -

TLOU. I'm replaying it with the DS4 and its damn good.

#49 Posted by playmynutz (6040 posts) -

Soul Sacrifice - GOTY

GTAV was a let down; the missions are tidious not fun, storyline boring, I honestly enjoy saints row the third more (not saying GTAV needed to be outrageous)

I think DmC is the only game I am very interested to play that I haven't

#50 Edited by madsnakehhh (14475 posts) -

I'm between The Last of Us and Fire Emblem, Bioshock Infinite was a candidate for a while, but it came short in the end...let's see if Super Mario 3D World or Zelda A Link Between Worlds change this.

Also, when talking about "old" games i just played this year i have to say, The Walking Dead is a masterpiece and probably my favorite game this year overall.
