The results are in!

Last week, we asked you in the Destructoid community to pick your most anticipated games of 2013. After a week of intense vote-counting, we're ready to share the results!

The voting was extremely close; so much so that the top three games were separated by only a few votes each. Keep reading to see how it all played out!

Here are your top ten most wanted games, in order of votes received (and with some quotes by Destructoid commenters):

BioShock Infinite (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC)
Release: March 26, 2013

Bioshock Infinite is the missing piece of my soul.
-- Occams electric toothbrush

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (PlayStation 3, Vita)
Release: February 5, 2013

Sly 4 looks unbelievable!
-- Joel Holmes

Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)
Release: TBA 2013

I am a pretty jaded asshole when it comes to videogames these days, and the only series that can still fill me with child-like delight other than child-flavoured Angel Delight is Grand Theft Auto. I don't even give a fuck, that game is going into my body.
-- Tarvu

The Last of Us (PlayStation 3)
Release: May 7, 2013

I love games where you get some choice in how you approach a situation. Either sneak around some bros, or confront them and shoot a dude in the face with a shotgun!
-- alexvola

Dark Souls II (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC)
Release: TBA 2013

Welp, that was easy.
-- knutaf

Watch_Dogs (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC)
Release: TBA 2013 

One thing is for certain: on the PC, at least, this game is going to do very, very sexy things to your eyeballs!
--Scrub

Ni no Kuni (PlayStation 3)
Release: January 22, 2013 

 It's a Studio Ghibli movie turned into a cel-shaded Pokemon-ish JRPG!
--flintmech 

South Park: The Stick of Truth (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC)
Release: March 5, 2013 

South Park: The Stick of Truth is the dark horse that Far Cry 3 was for me last year.
--MisanthropicFuck

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)
Release: February 19, 2013

I'm loving this shit; most exited I have ever been for a Metal Gear game.
--El Conrado

Pikmin 3 (Wii U)
Release: Spring 2013 

Been waiting for this game for over 4-5 years!
--Joseph S

And here are your ten runners-up:

Aliens: Colonial Marines
Star Wars 1313
The Elder Scrolls Online
Tomb Raider
Dead Space 3
Total War: Rome II
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
The Last Guardian
Rayman Legends
Fire Emblem: Awakening

What an awesome bunch of games! No matter where your preference lies, 2013 seems to have something in store to satisfy.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote, and have fun in 2013!
