Best of 2013


I just love the variety offered in this category every single year. No nominee really plays like another. Even Gone Home and The Stanley Parable HD have a similar control scheme, but their experiences are about as different as they come. Whether you enjoyed swapping with The Swapper, rejecting immigrants with Papers, Please, or trying to make sense of it all with Antichamber or Kentucky Route Zero, it has no doubt been another wonderful year for PC exclusives. 

Here are the nominees for the 2013 PC exclusive of the year.

And the winner is...

Papers, Please

A game that is nearly impossible to accurately describe to someone who has never seen it, Papers, Please is about as unique as they come. Who could have predicted that the PC game of the year would have been about allowing or not allowing immigrants into a fictional country? I'll tell you who: anybody who has actually played it. It's hard not to get caught up in the world while playing Papers, Please. The satisfying sound effect when you reject someone's plea to enter the country is just so ... mmm mmm good. 

Congratulations to Papers, Please and Lucas Pope!

That was our pick for best PC game of 2013. As for our community poll, you all voted Shadow Warrior as your number one PC game of 2013. That was followed by The Stanley Parable HD, and Papers, Please.

Flyin' to my heart: Seven videogame songs that actually excite me

It's tough for me to get excited these days. I ain't jaded, I just hate it. Actually, it's not like I hate everything. I simply feel anxious nearly every waking moment of my life. I need something to look forward to, no matte...more

So what exactly is a deck-building game anyway?

A number of videogames have shown up lately with the gameplay adjective "deck-building" in their descriptions. Steve Swink took a break from developing Scale in order to release Dad's Building a Deck. Coin...more
