Did you buy games you didn't expect? Did you finish the games you wanted? Did the games deliver? What did you think of gaming in 2013?

I wasn't expecting Spacebase DF-9 to ever be more than the prototype that Double Fine made for the Amnesia Fortnight event. I was happy and surprised when they announced an Early Access version of a full game on Steam.

I played it and it's a lot deeper now, as it should be. As a proof of concept, the AF prototype was a good laugh in and of itself, but it was one of the least voted on in the AF poll so I never expected it to make it into full on production. It was a pleasant surprise for me and I have had a lot of fun hours each time they roll out a new build. Can't wait to see where it ends up once it's finished.

Love the guys at Double Fine.

I very much enjoyed gaming in 2013. The highlights of the year, for me, were Dead Space 3 and Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

But, the pinnacle for me this year was the XBox One. I got mine on Day One and am enjoying it immensely. Call of Duty: Ghosts, Ryse: Son of Rome, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and Forza Motorsport 5 have all been fantastic games. Battlefield 4 will be fantastic when (and if) they work all of the issues out of it. The year was rounded out by the fantastic Super Mario 3D World. This coming year, I'm looking forward to Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Titanfall, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Watch Dogs, Destiny, Tom Clancy's The Division, and the next COD and AC entries.

I didn't buy many games in 2013 but the games that I did buy really impressed me and I'm looking forward to seeing what 2014 brings.

Well I finally finished The Walking Dead by Telltale games. Its an amazing game, which lead me to buy A Wolf Among Us (and season 2 of The Walking Dead), which is shaping up to be an even better game. For me 2013 was a very good year as I also pick up a 3ds and discovered Fire Emblem for the first time.

2013 was mostly DotA 2/League with the occasional foray into a 3DS game.

Did also play Tomb Raider, Devil May Cry, The Last of Us and Metal Gear Rising and was pleasantly surprised by all of them.

I haven't really had a chance to play many of the Fall 2013 games, so I'm a bit behind.

However I've been playing my 3DS mostly, Pokemon and Zelda and I got Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D even though I own it on the Wii. I've got Super Mario 3D World and Wind Waker HD, but my Wii U is packed up at the moment. I also wanted to pick up Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (never thought I'd say that after ACIII) and Batman: Arkham Origins.

2013 was a great year in gaming for me.

Finally got around to beating Fallout 3 and New Vegas (Still going through the dlc). I fell in love with these games.

Of course the ps4 launch and all the excitement. The months leading up to the launch where I was going through my backlog to kill time. I beat Deadly premonition, Rage, Resident evil 6, Vanquish, Doom Bfg edition during that time.

Stand out games for me were GTAV, Metro last light, The Last of us, and Beyond two souls, Killzone SF and AC Black flag.

Also getting Gran turismo 6 and releasing how awesome it is and how the ps3 still has so much to offer.

2014 has a lot to live up to. If fallout 4 and Mass effect 4 come out next year, than it should be a great year for me.

as far as new releases go, there was gone home and brothers: a tale of two sons among other quality titles. i missed out on some games that my laptop couldn't run such as antichamber and the stanley parable though (looking at some gameplay videos of the stanley parable, i have no idea why it's system requirements are that high).

i played some great games from previous years for the first time too including the walking dead season 1, deadly premonition, and hotline miami (i'm playing baldur's gate II right now and liking it so far after being pretty dispassionate about the original). i replayed some old favorites too like majora's mask, which is always great because i think appreciating older games is just as important as finding new ones.

so it was a solid gaming year for me.

The majority of my gaming took place on my 3DS. I bought and played some games on other systems, like Sleeping Dogs, Shadows of the Damned, and more, but I think the only game from 2013 that wasn't on my 3DS was Borderlands 2, and I only just got that and am not very far in it.

Some games I'd still like to get are Last of Us, Metal Gear Revengence, and Devil May Cry. DmC I'll grab on PSN for the PS+ offer. I'm holding off on GTA V to see if a next gen port is coming. There's also Killzone Shadowfall and Super Mario 3D World but I still need to get a PS4 and Wii U first.

MGSR Revengeance is a really good game, the only thing that bugged me where the blocking mechanics and the length of the game

two games i liked this year. Tomb Raider, they brought this game to a whole new level to modern times and its now been rebooted perfectly and hopefully they keep things going as good as the reboot was.

And Civ 5 brave new world, this game was really addictive, i just wish they would release a crisp full version with all the expansions with no DRM in it.

I gave the Metal Gear Solid games a try, but I just can't seem to like the game (just the story). I was very impressed with Naruto Ultimate Storm's third game. Dishonored failed on entertaining me. Had a huge blast with Skyrim (I game I thought I was going to hate). Played one of the best games ever imo, The Last of Us.
