Admin has already told us the best of 2012, but what does 2013 have in store for us? This is my own opinion of what the best games of 2013 will be and it will be in no specific order…but I am saving the best till last.
Aliens: Colonial Marines
After eight long years, we are finally going to be able to finally get our hands on some Pulse riles and blast some xenomorphs away. Of course we have already had this opportunity with Sega’s less popular Alien Vs Predator, a game which I still play now and again, that game had a lot of bugs and problems, problems which I am hoping to not see in this game. Also the fact that there are no Predators in this game is also a nice relief and they ruined the balance of the game quite a bit. The game is canon as well, and tells us a little bit more about the Alien universe. The multiplayer is something I am actually looking forward to, since it is pretty much like Left 4 Dead.
Dead Space 3
Where is Carver when you need him?
I know it is already out but still a 2013 release. I am pretty ashamed to admit I have never played a Dead Space part from the demo of the second which royally shit me up the first time I played it. However after watching some gameplay for the third game in the installment, I can see many people will enjoy this and now you can play with a friend meaning you don’t have to scream all alone. When I first heard about somethings about this game it was like Dead Space and Lost Planet where switching places but more on that later. I am glad they cut multiplayer from this so they could focus on the campaign and well from what I have heard the multiplayer wasn’t great in the second game anyway.
The Last Of Us
We all gotta learn to survive.
I gotta admit I am gutted this is a PS3 exclusive, this is gonna be one hell of a game. Survival being the key objective of this game as you and a girl go through an infested city and well try and survive. As you travel around you come across infected and non-infected but that is the only difference between the two as both sides want you dead for their own reasons. The characters seem to really drive the story and that simply makes it all the more interesting.
Metro: Last Night
Guess he misses the sun…
Another post-apocalyptic game which takes place in Russia. I haven’t played the first though it is on my never ending list of games to play and the book also following suit. Metro is surprisingly a fun and scary game, with an enjoyable story line. I can’t really comment much on this game seeing as I have yet to play the first, but the trailers it has released are pretty awesome and I have only heard good things being said about the game.
This was originally meant to be put in, as you can tell with the use of Elizabeth in the main picture. For those not sure yes this is in the same universe as Rapture as this takes place 34 years before the idea of Rapture even came to be (1912, I believe; Rapture’s construction began in 1946). After the countless gameplay and trailers I have seen, this is the main single player campaign I want to play out of every game coming out this year, the countless fun I have had in one and two tells me Infinite is gonna be great and full of mystery waiting to b unraveled. I have conquered the seas, I am ready to bring down the skies.
Army Of Two: Devil’s Cartel
Brothers To The End
Army Of Two was a fun co-op game for me to play with others, so when I heard they were announcing a new one, I couldn’t help but be a little excited. A whole new story line, a whole new set of characters and they are using the Frostbite engine meaning destruction everywhere…However I am not too sure on the main characters, from what I have seen they aren’t to my liking.
Who will be your favorite?
I think this is the game which everybody is waiting for, GTA V, maybe possibly be Game Of The Year. I don’t think I need to say much about this game, it pretty much speaks for itself.
I have only done games which have officially been announced to be released this year.
Sound off below if you thinI have missed a game which deserved to be mentioned or if I was wrong to mention one.
