Must-Buy Games of 2013

In lieu of last year's list, I'm continuing the list of the must-buy games of 2013 with a few tweaks that I hope serves for better accessibility than last year's. This list isn't a means of demanding you to buy these games (though exceptions are possible where I may destroy your PC with text), but rather it is meant to:
a) Help you determine the value of games worth looking into, be it renting, purchasing or simply downloading the demo or borrowing it from a friend
b) Possibly persuade on-fence customers

In case you missed it, here is my list of the best games of 2012.

Bioshock infinite.

If it comes out this year: Dark Souls 2, Dragon Age 3.

Don't care about the new Call of Duty coming out in November (haven't for years) and Battlefield died with number 3 for me. IF they announce Bad Company 3 though I would be all over that, but I don't think it will come out this year (obvious reasons) so its safe to say it will be realeased in 2015 if we ever see it. lol

GTA 5 & Omerta: City of Gangsters are the only 2 I'm interested in.

IF the next xbox comes out, I'll try to pick that up as well with a game or 2 for it, depending on the title. We shall see though.

On Devil Hunter difficulty, it took me around twelve hours to complete according to my game time-tracking device. I believe the replay value within the game justifies the shorter time. At the end of the day, I just remember how DMC 2 took be five hours to beat... and I nod and just play.

Yup, and I loved every minute of it. Never experienced many of the glitches people were going crazy about, so that may be why.

Oddly enough there are not that many games (that I'm aware of yet) that I am really excited about that are "must" buys for me.

Tombraider for sure, even with the tacked on MP
Metro Last Light

after that just a bunch of maybes.

Dead Space 3. The demo was really good so may get that.
Army of Two, maybe as well

Not a fan of the GTA or Bioshock series

So that's it for me so far.

Walking Dead Season 1 episodes 2-5 damn I loved the first 1. I love Walking Dead !

Borderlands (1)

Deadrising 2,again haven't played it since April last year,really miss it. Want to 100% it before I get another amazing game called.....

Dead Space 3, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Metro Last Night and The Walking Dead are the ones for me. Walking dead mainly because I'm a die hard Walking Dead fan.

Here's my most wanted list of games for 2013

Bioshock: Infinite
Dead Space 3
GTA V
Aliens: Colonial Marines
The Last Of Us (PS3)
Crysis 3
Tomb Raider
Metro: Last Light (If it actually gets released)
Injustice: Gods Among Us
South Park: The Stick Of Truth
Lego City Undercover
Beyond: Two Souls (PS3)
Watch Dogs
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2
Star Wars 1313
Deadpool
Lego: Marvel Super Heroes
and Forza 5 (if I'm right)

Yup. Even the friend I was playing with on co-op never experienced any. Maybe a few minor glitches, but none of the game-breaking ones that a lot of people experienced.
