So far I've got a few must buys of 2013, especially if you can get a good deal on them.

- Bioshock Infinite
- Dead Space 3
- Tomb Raider
- DmC: Devil May Cry

I'm sure there are others but I can't remember everything I've played that came out this year.

This thread is getting buried. Needs an update from gamerscorhunta!

I finished Beyond: Two Souls last night. Wow. What a great game. I really adored it. I think I like it even more than BioShock: Infinite. Beyond might remain my personal GOTY, I don't see much else coming out that strongly interests me other than Super TIME Force (release date is still TBA 2013, ugh), and Tearaway, a PS Vita exclusive. And I don't have a Vita!

Looking back at what's gone through 2013 before we delve into the next generation and the launch line-up of "AAA" games, I think I'm pretty locked down in terms of what I thought was worth playing.

The one game I think everyone needs to experience this year should be Beyond: Two Souls.

The runners up that are pretty awesome and memorable are BioShock: Infinite, and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (a strong HD remake, and the first Zelda game I've ever played. So charming!).

Honorable mentions go to: Rayman Legends, Outlast, The Swapper, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

That's pretty much it from me. I'm not expecting a lot from the early months of the next-gen/current gen hybrid scaled games. I'll probably get Ryse and AC4 next year when next-gen slowly starts picking up and I have a better understanding of hardware/HDD storage. And Ryse/AC4 will be cheaper when I swoop in for the purchase. I think they'll be ok launch titles to look back at once the X1 and the PS4 start winding down a decade from now. Nothing stupendous, but decent historical fiction.

Oh yeah, and Pokemon X/Y recently came out. They seem pretty great, but I haven't played them as I don't have any current gen handhelds. My girlfriend plans on picking up a 2DS and Pokemon X tomorrow, but knowing her she'll be immersed in it all day and I won't get to try it out. I want to get a 2/3DS for myself...but Tearaway on the Vita looks so good!

Really!? Now I'm kind of interested. I often agree with your opinions on games/music/television/movies on the site so this is a ringing endorsement. I had Beyond Two Souls pre-ordered but backed out on release day after the mixed reviews and decided to wait until I can scoop it up for cheap. You put it above Bioshock Infinite huh? That's a bold statement sir!

Reviews for Beyond: Two Souls are way to mixed for me to even bother watching a Let's Play of it on YouTube.

Honestly just seems like a glorified movie...just like Heavy Rain did.

And I'd hardly say Metal Gear Rising is a "must buy", lol. My devoted, hardcore friend who is obsessed with MGS - more so than you - played it through and said it had decent combat and soundtrack but was not necessary as a part of the Meta Gear Solid universe.

Also, Super Time Force? Please tell me that's a joke, lol.

I have Pokemon X. It's one of my favorite games to come out in a long time.

I haven't had this much fun with a Pokemon game since Pokemon Blue. It's that good.

It's more of an "acquired taste" type of thing, I don't really mind the mechanics of the game just like I didn't mind Telltale's The Walking Dead or Heavy Rain.

Beyond is something that struck me as a more personal story of life and death. If you didn't like Heavy Rain I'd wager you won't like Beyond.

Ellen Page was incredible in this, I'd say she's vastly improved her acting and she's even more emotionally gripping than she was in Hard Candy or An American Crime. The other actors were fine, including Willem Dafoe (I've only seen him in Platoon and the Green Goblin from Spider-man, so I can't speak much for him). Certain segments of the game are burned in my brain, and I want to go back and replay them and make different choices (Homeless, the birthday party, and the mission quickly come to mind). I'm itching to replay this entire game in general and see if it has a different emotional impact on me. I don't feel like the choices mattered too much, except for certain segments (and that goes into spoiler territory).

But I definitely got a bit touchy once I finished the game. With BioShock: Infinite's ending I was all like wooooaaaah, shotgun to my head wow gee willikers I gahtta get to the forums and see what people are saying about the ending!!!! With Beyond, it felt like I was watching a single rose constantly blooming and shriveling up. I viewed it as an abysmally morbid situation, yet there was curiosity that began to reach out of my mind and I forced that curiosity to rip the rose out of the ground by the roots and I planted a garden of roses to take the place of that one fucked up abnormal rose. There's something unique to Beyond, and I think it's the one game that everyone should check out this year. It's not perfect and it's not for everyone, like I said before. But it should be something that promotes thoughts. After I beat Beyond last night, I didn't really care much for what others had to say about the game. I just went out for a walk a few hours ago and didn't think of much else other than what I experienced. I feel like I've not only received a new perception on what I should expect from a game, but I've gained another view on how I perceive a human lifespan. It was so morbid, yet so comforting.

That was part of the appeal for me. People poo pooed all over Only God Forgives (Refn-Gosling duo work from this year) and that remains the best movie I've seen in 2013. Granted, I've only like three movies this year (OGF, Place Beyond the Pines, and Don Jon) but Only God Forgives is one of the most unique films I've ever set eyes on (and that's probably due to me never viewing an "art" film).

I put it in my honorable mentions category. Not really a must buy but I did like the "cutting everything up into bits" even though Raiden's character is out of whack now. A decent spin-off worthy of sharing the Metal Gear name. But completely different from the Solids.

Nah, Capybara is awesome. I should probably get to playing Clash of Heroes, I've heard a bunch of good things about it. I'm really excited for Below on the Xbox One, but Super TIME Force is Capybara's current push to the finish line product. I've got some hopes for that. Not as hyped for it as I am for Below, though.

That's not a nostalgia thing, is it? I feel like the Pokemon games have gotten progressively better since gen 1. I've played through Red, Silver, Emerald and Diamond, but I haven't played from the first Black/Whites onward. Red remains my favorite, but that's probably due to the great memories of playing it so much when I was younger. I'd say Diamond would be my second favorite, but the story began to bore me.

I personally stopped after Sapphire (Generation 3) as I thought they began to get progressively worse. Between the first three generations, Gen 3 is probably my favorite and while I don't care for Gen 4 or 5, I kinda want to experiment with Pokemon X but buying a 3DS is too much money

I really only have 2 games in consideration for must-buys of 2013, but take note I don't play a lot of games anyways:

The Last of Us & Bioshock Infinite...

Can't believe I'm saying this - but I can't consider GTA V a must-buy.

I'm soooo tempted to get a 2DS right now for the price point. I don't care much for 3D, I just want to play some Pokemon. Then again I don't want to buy a system just to play one game. I'd get a 2DS for Pokemon X/Y along with the Ocarina of Time remake, but I have no idea as to what other titles I should be playing on that thing. My girlfriend's just sitting here and smirking at me all smug like as she just got a 3DS XL with Pokemon X. It's torture, she won't let me look.

I also don't know if I should wait a while or not, Pokemon "Z" might be out next year. I've got no idea what to do.

I don't really play all too many games either. I'm surprised with how much I've changed over the past year though. I seem to be getting really into them in general. I can't believe back in the early 2000s all I did was play Halo. Fantastic times, but I want to keep wading out into the world of video games. They're awesome. I love the interactivity and control you have playing a game as compared to watching a movie or reading a book.

I played about an hour of The Last of Us at a friend's, and I liked it enough to blow through a no commentary walkthrough on YouTube. But I haven't given it much thought since it came out. I forgot the bloody ending until just a few minutes ago when I had to look it up because I realized how much I forgot. If there's anything I do remember about The Last of Us it would be

1. The Ellen Page scandal
2. Winter
3. Fucking giraffes

I'm so sorry I have let this slide a little. State soccer club has really been kicking my schedule around lately!

So ever since my last update, I have had a handful of fantastic games to play. Obviously, Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V has impressed me to colossal lengths. The console port of Diablo III also really left a better impression on me than the PC version, correcting nearly all the biggest issues with it. The first LEGO title I've ever included in a Must-Buy list, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the surprising hit to come out of Telltale Games' studioheads. Finally, the HD remake of Wind Waker, the most polarizing Zelda title ever released, graced Wii U owners with improvements over the original and a revamped graphical output.

Again, sorry for the long lapse of time with nothing going on. I appreciate the on-going support from you guys so much and you guys are what keep me making these!

Right? I mean, the game is great in the Single Player, but it's definitely not anything that NEEDS to be played.

SPOILERS (Bioshock Infinite)

After some consideration, The Last of Us has my vote for game of the year. It was always between that and Bioshock Infinite and while the ending of Infinite left my jaw on the floor, the Winter portion of The Last of Us was one of the most impactful sections of a game I've ever had the pleasure of playing. The flashback to Rapture was mind-blowing at the time, but in hindsight, it was kind of a cop-out in the sense that they reverted back to it, that was just too easy to do. I'm not knocking it, I still love it but since it boils down to these kind of moments for me, Winter takes it.

Rapture is a great set piece but I'm feeling fatigue from seeing it reinvigorated so much in the last six or so years (including John Shirley's BioShock: Rapture).

P.S. a bunch of new games are out, none of them I've played (Batman Origins, Black Flag, Battlefield 4 - CoD Ghosts is almost here). What do people make of 'em now?

Seems like BiggD is taking a liking to Origins despite all the corrupt save - game crashing stuff I've heard.

From what I've gathered with BF4: better campaign than BF3 (not saying much) and more robust multiplayer ( everyone loves "levolution"). Ok game.

Black Flag - A mixed bag. Some people are heralding it as the best and most refreshing AC game to date and some people are sick of it and don't give a hoot about assassin pirates. Notice most people saying they like it have skipped out on at least one of the previous games.

Beyond: Two Souls. Still my GOTY.

I can't wait to play Burial At Sea, I'm excited to revisit Rapture. I don't know, I feel like a bit of a hypocrite because a couple of weeks ago I responded to the same kind of question on the other site and I gave the nod to Bioshock Infinite. It's a very tough choice for me. I think in the end the world of Columbia was a lot more creative than the post apocalyptic world in The Last of Us but that Winter sequence was just so damn great. My game of the year is a game where Troy Baker does the voice of the main character, I'll leave it at that.

The successor to last year's XCOM: Enemy Unknown showed be that adding a lot to an already balanced formula didn't have to make it unstable: it actually strengthened it. It's been added as the first November must-buy game!

It's a very tough choice for me. I think in the end the world of Columbia was a lot more creative than the post apocalyptic world in The Last of Us but that Winter sequence was just so damn great. My game of the year is a game where Troy Baker does the voice of the main character, I'll leave it at that.
Have you managed to get a hold of Burial at Sea Episode 1? I thought it was alright.

Pretty sure he sold his PS3 so I don't think he has anyway to play it now.

Oh, and your sig is all messed up! Image is no longer there.

I didn't even see this comment until now, nope I sold my PS3 the Sunday before it released. It doesn't sound like I missed much. Honestly, it took so damn long to release I kind of stopped caring.

The flashback to Rapture was mind-blowing at the time, but in hindsight, it was kind of a cop-out in the sense that they reverted back to it, that was just too easy to do. I'm not knocking it, I still love it but since it boils down to these kind of moments for me, Winter takes it.
Definitely have to agree with ya, man.

Seems like BiggD is taking a liking to Origins despite all the corrupt save - game crashing stuff I've heard.
Yeah, Origins never crashed or bugged on me. Just 3-4 freezes but the game was still great. Amazing script/story but the combat and environment is all the same which is kinda unfortunate

I'll tell you what's missing from this list of must buys of this year. Age of Empires II HD edition. One of the greatest RTS games ever, rereleased to work better with newer hardware, AND a completely new expansion pack with The Forgotten. Honestly, this rerelease has me so excited I want to get a new laptop almost as much as I want to get a Xbox One next year for Halo 5 and Dragon Age Inquisition.

Other than that, honestly there haven't really been any games released this year that I would've been sad to miss out on. Tomb Raider was mediocre, honestly. A huge let down after how much great fun Anniversary and Underworld were. Gears of War Judgment was also mediocre. I didn't think it was as terrible as most people say it was, but it was a letdown after Gears 3 did everything right. Other than Ryse for next-gen, I don't think there's anything else that's come out this year that I even had any interest in besides those games.

Finally did all I wanted to do in Need for Speed: Rivals. It is such a thrilling, gorgeous game, I am absolutely shocked that Need for Speed has been able to maintain being my favorite racing series for two years in a row now! It's been added to the list, November is (as always) turning out to be the month for some stellar titles!!
