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!

If you spend 10 minutes trying to write a Quickpost...can it really be called Quickpost?

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

5ish hours into Phantom Pain and it is absolutely glorious. This is truly A Hideo Kojima game.

It looks like my job at PAX didn't work out (For a variety of reasons). Have fun at the convention, everyone! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdqoNKCCt7A

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

My son just washed my Majora's Mask NEW 3DS because the screen was dirty. Bahahaha *cries uncontrollably*

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!

Fassbender looks awesome. A not shit game adaption? We will see

Just found out that Third Impact in The End of Evangelion took place on my birthday. I'm freaking out right now.
