My favorite games of 2013 so far

   0
Update: Dragon's Crown also deserves a spot on this list. And from what I've played of Killzone Mercenary it'll be on here too.

We're a little over halfway through the year. Seems like a good time to do some reflecting or whatever. In no particular order...

My favorites...



Fire Emblem: Awakening is a modern classic. Intelligent Systems have crafted one of the finest strategy role-playing games in years. This alone is a reason to pick up a Nintendo 3DS.



I'm pretty sure The Last of Us has ruined AAA games for me. It sets such a high standard. Just about anything else pales in comparison. Naughty Dog have come as close to perfection as I've seen from a big budget release in a long, long time.



Tomb Raider is one of thsoe games that The Last of Us ruined for me. I couldn't help but constantly think about all its little flaws. Ad yet, like a summer action flick, I found it pretty entertaining. It's not great, but I couldn't put it down.



I love the Bit.Trip series. The way Gaijin Games blends facets of retro design into all-new nostalgia-laden experiences really speaks to me. Runner2 continues that trend. It's a pretty good time.



Released just a week into the New Year with little to no fanfare, Anarchy Reigns was sent out to die. And that's a real pity because this pseudo-follow-up to Madworld is one of the most entertaining multiplayer games of 2013. The murderous sport that is Deathball is well-worth the title's asking price alone.



Project X Zone is a game with little in the way of nuance. It takes characters from the vaults of Capcom, Namco, and Sega; and tosses them together into a tactical role-playinggame. It's total fan service and I love it.



Ubisoft repurposed the mechanics from one of my favorite releases of last year into a wacky new experience. Far Cry 3 is pure stupid fun. And it's great value for money to boot. More of this please.



Least favorite games...

BioShock Infinite, Time and Eternity, The Starship Damrey



Most anticipated...

Killer is Dead, Dragon's Crown, Killzone Mercenary, Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Saints Row IV, Killzone Shadow Fall

Still in the Backlog...

Pandora' Tower, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Metal Gear Rising, Monaco, Antichamber
