Dtoid GOTY 2013: Kyle MacGregor's Picks


Speaking of games that I couldn't stop playing, The Last of Us has scarcely left my PS3's disc tray since the game launched. After going through the wonderful campaign, which really wowed me in ways that big budget AAA games rarely ever do, I gave multiplayer a spin and was hooked. 

I hate to use this term, but it's visceral. It's a really violent game, set in a violent world with terrible people that do horrible things, and I love it. The storytelling brings it all together. I believe in it. The quality dripping from virtually every facet of the experience gives me hope. Joel and Ellie's journey was magical -- in a horrifying sort of way. I believe in Naughty Dog now. Man, I don't even like Uncharted.

The competitive experience brings me back week after week after week. I'm still playing this game. The emphasis on collecting resources is really interesting, and I particularly like the round-based best of seven mode where you only get one life. It makes sense within that world, where you're hanging by a thread and trying to scrape things together and will do anything and use anything to survive. It's pretty much the antithesis of the Call of Duty-like multiplayer experience that I loathe. So, therefore it's amazing.
