2013 GAME OF THE YEAR
WINNER: GRAND THEFT AUTO V
The fifth release in the immensely popular Grand Theft Auto series launched to critical-acclaim this year. Not only did it have one of the best stories of all the GTA games, but the online multiplayer was a step forward for the series. The immersive and extremely fun single player open-world experience is now available to play with friends where missions and tasks are completed for cash. The graphics were outstanding and overall, the game deserved a 10/10 score and our GAME OF THE YEAR award. GTAV would just below The Last of Us if we were awarding game of the generation, however, the multiplatform availability earns it GOTY 2013.
RUNNER-UP: THE LAST OF US
It was a very tough choice between GTA and The Last of Us, and if we could, we would name both as GOTY, but, that would defeat the purpose. The Last of Us is a game which doesn’t come around often. It is a stunning masterpiece; filled with deep characters, an engaging story and phenomenal gameplay. This truly is Naughty Dog’s best game thus far, and EVERYONE should have the experience of playing it. It is one of the best, if not THE best game of this generation.
