The Dtoid community's most wanted games of 2013

3:30 PM on 01.14.2013 // mrandydixon

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!

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

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

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.

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!

I don't know what's been going on, but I actually feel like I have to fight with the formatting of the blog editor now to get it right. Hope it'll settle down soon.

Robin secretly controls the boobs of Nintendo characters. She stole the Xenoblade boobs and took the Fatal Frame lingerie for herself. #DammitRobin [img][/img]

I was just playing Skyrim and wondered if anyone has come up with Fallout 3/New Vegas weapon mods for Skyrim? Fighting dragons with assault weapons sounds almost necessary. [img][/img]

Just bought Fallout: New Vegas. Throw me the best mods there are that AREN'T Total Conversion mods. So now Who Vegas - yet.

For an early Christmas present I got my girlfriend Wooly World to go with our new Wii U. I've gotten more joy out of how adorable all the character designs are than I'd like to admit.

Hey Dtoiders ! Steam just destroyed my wallet ! Share here what you bought in this sale !
GoofierBrute avatarGoofierBrute
And so I purchased not just Hyper Dimension Neptunia, but also its sequel and Grim Fandango Remastered in the Steam Sale, and it isn't even the end of the first day. God damnit. At least refunds are thing a now.

I'm currently writing a review for a mobile game, but only because I'm enjoying the hell out it. I'm honestly enjoying it far more than Puzzles and Dragons.

Damn, I think I'm Bruce Willis from Unbreakable. Just fell of a 12-foot ladder and all I got was a little scratch on my finger.
CoilWhine avatarCoilWhine
After I finish Fallout 4 I'm thinking of 100%ing Skyrim and then installing a TON of dinosaur mods on it.
voex avatarvoex
4 hours into Hotline Miami 2 and I'm finding it just as fun as the original. So far it's a good balance between frustration and satisfaction. Still have no idea what the story is about.

1. Start playing Ocarina of Time again. 2. Start having fun. 3. Discover fishing area. 4. Stop having fun.

A 2-d hovercraft platforming exploration game just came out today. Have fun collecting the coins! My record so far is 140.

Holy shit the new David Bowie video/song is just lovely.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.
