There are no Wii U exclusives in his list. :|

That's what I'm saying. His Top 5 games on the list are fine, but the bottom 5 are a mess. I definitely wouldn't have 4 PC games on my list, that's for sure.

#5 Edited by GamingGod999 (3002 posts) -

@Zen_Light I think he meant 3DS.

#6 Edited by MrYaotubo (2709 posts) -

That´s a pretty good list and coming from GS senor editor may be pretty relevant for the overall awards.

Because you disagree with it? I think it´s a damn good list.

#9 Edited by Zen_Light (1236 posts) -

I actually agree with Kevin about TLoU and GTA V. There were plenty of games released this year that are better than those games.

Why is Outlast, Gone Home & Splinter Cell on that list? Where is Bioshock and Super Mario 3D World? The 5 games on the top of his list makes sense. The bottom 5 doesn't. My Top 10 definitely has Bioshock, Super Mario 3D World & Ni No Kuni on the list. .

@blackace That's a strange question: "Why is Outlast, Gone Home & Splinter Cell on that list? Where is Bioshock and Super Mario 3D World?"

This is my personal top 10 list of 2013, and these represent my favorite games. That's pretty self-explanatory, right?

#11 Edited by PrincessGomez92 (3616 posts) -

Uh-oh, his list is different. Must be a poor list then.

No one got owned as those aren't MY TOP 10 2013 games. lol!! Most gamers think his list sucks, so Kevin is the one getting owned. He has the right to his opinion, but he shouldn't get upset when lots of people disagree with it. lol!!

I'm not upset. I just didn't care for some of the games on his list. How is that being upset? Stop trying to make something out of nothing. lol!!

Go back and read all the comments. Not everyone is agreeing with his list of games. Which isn't really surprising. No, I'm not the only one. I agreed with 1/2 the games he chose.

You´ll have a really big headache when you check out most of the editor´s lists that are already out,GTAV and TLoU are barely mentioned and the platform with most games selected by far is the PC,Path of Exile alone seems to be in almost every single list.

#25 Posted by jg4xchamp (48378 posts) -

Neat list, I like that there will be some differences amongst the group.

The usual Last of Us-GTA 5-Bioshock Infinite lists would have been boring as fuck.

Hell I've only played Blood Dragon and Gone Home out of all the games on that list

Yeah,I think all the lists are already out and it seems GTAV/Bioshock/TLOU aren´t among the most chosen games,the ones on almost all the lists seem to be Path of Exile and Gone Home,with Dota 2 and The Stanley Parable making apearences on several lists as well.

#29 Posted by Basinboy (11243 posts) -

Not a bad list at all

#30 Posted by StrongBlackVine (8418 posts) -

Gone Home and Stanley Parable barely classify as games. They make Beyond Two Souls look like Devil May Cry.

Kevins list had no

GTA V

TLOU

Shadow Warrior

State of Decay

Fire Emblem Awakening

Pokemon X/Y

Don't Starve

and that's just naming a few games that are better than Splinter Cell Blacklist,Outlast, NNK. I'm surprised he actually gave FC3 Blood Dragon and Metro Last Light in his top 10 since those games were pretty underrated.

Doesn't change fact that they are extremely short games with little to no gameplay other than walking around and looking at stuff. I guess it depends on how much you like the story. Van Ord is gay so Gone Home probably resonated with him.

What about all the non gay people on the staff that nominated it? Because it seems to be in the majority of the lists,so what´s the excuse for the non gay editors?

There is prominent transgendered person on staff as well. Clearly the game touched on a subject that would be meaningful to Gamespot.

Carolyn Petit's list is even worse then Kevin's. No wonder I don't rely on GS reviews for much of anything.

Splinter Cell was better than Pokemon, Dont Starve and State of Decay imo. I haven't played Shadow Warrior(I want to) but Im willing to bet its better than that too. If any game doesn't deserve to be on the list its Metro. Gone Home and Ni No Kuni.

Gone Home takes a giant massive dump over Beyond. Its short, its barely a game and its overrated but the writing is 1000x better than whatever garbage David Cage can throw at a wall.

I appreciated Gone home's reference's to female on female sexy time, I guess that makes it better than Beyond.
