2013 was a year of big life changes for me. I moved into an apartment with my wonderful girlfriend AND got my very first teaching job! Being a teacher has certainly put a damper on the amount of time I can dedicate to videogames, but it�s really just changed the type of games I play instead of playing less games overall. Take the order of this list with a grain of salt since I had a very hard time deciding.�
So here's some games I liked.
Games I haven�t played enough to put on here but would likely end up on here if I played them more: Papers, Please, The Stanley Parable, Rayman Legends, Desktop Dungeons, A Link Between Worlds, State of Decay, Divekick, Gunpoint. Games that just�didn't�make it but I still really really like them: Animal Crossing, Monster Hunter, Pokemon X, Ni No Kuni, Rogue Legacy, Antichamber, Wind Waker HD
So without further ado, here are my top 10 games of 2013.
1. Dota 2
So, Dota 2
has joined the ranks of the few games that have transcended the �videogame� category into the �hobby� category. Yes, I understand that videogames are hobbies, but certain games became a hobby themselves
. Games (for me) like Rock Band 3
, which is something I just boot up and play when there�s down time. There�s no �beating� it and I don�t think I�ll truly ever be bored with it. Team Fortress 2
are also in this category. They�re the games that make my GOTY list every year, even if it�s unmentioned.
I am absorbed into everything Dota 2
. The gameplay, the economy, the community, the metagame, everything! Every game is so different and you must always be on your toes in order to thrive. I can spend an entire evening simply watching Dota 2
and be perfectly content. In fact, that�s what I prefer to do sometimes! I can�t get enough of Dota 2
, and it easily takes this #1 spot on my list.
