Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut: 2
Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus: 2 Slow gaming year. :C

Most Anticipated Title:
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh does the entire Playstation 4 count on its own? No?

Ah alright, then hilariously enough, the director's cut of Deus Ex.

Biggest Letdown:
Urgh. Tie between Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls. I think I am the only person o nthe planet that did not like the last of us. I stopped playing because the gameplay was so infuriating for me it was just not fun at all. The story and the setting and all that? AWESOME. gameplay? brb: throwing ps3 into the sun. So yeah. I quit. I felt so bad about it at first, since everyone loved it, but I realized I should be playing games for fun and not because everyone else is doing it. Because truthfully, could I have beaten it? Of course. Would I have had fun doing it? Hell no. THEN WHY PLAY IT? so i didn't.

Oh and Beyond. My my. I bought it because it had a "co-op" mode and Kayla wanted to play it a bit too. I thought it would be fun. Plus, I played the demo and thought it was cool. Unfortunately it forgot to tell you that the demo was the most fun the game had for you at all, and that they padded the game with so much garbage it didn't even need. Even my room mate who was half watching us trudge through the crap fest kept asking how long this one segment was, and what even was the point of it. We actually beat it in one night, simply because as we kept playing we kept saying "THIS HAS TO BE THE LAST CHAPTER" and there was audible groaning when it was in fact, not the last chapter.

That is the sign of a bad game.

Also, it felt even less interactive than Heavy Rain did. :/ Somehow... they did it. Also my choices meant nothing. It was like watching a DVD and saying pressing play/pause hundreds of times suddenly makes it a video game! (it doesn't)

Needless to say, I will be watching Quantic Dream a bit more closely before buying their next game, and if their next game gets awful reviews, I will bargain bin it, because I'm not giving them full retail price for another game unless its damn good. (or at least Heavy Rain good)

Most Surprising Game:
KILLZONE: SHADOW FALL. for reasons I've fangrilled about. I initially went into the game being mad and angry they changed stuff because I thought it was dumb. But the second mission was awesome, and it just got better from there. :| In fact, it was the first game I'd played this year asides from Bioshock Infinite that just made me want to play MORE MORE MORE MORE.

Favorite Game of 2013:
........DXHR Director's Cut. I'M SORRY. ITS TRUE. I JUST LOVE THIS GAME. If I can't pick the re-release. Then uh....
Into the Nexus. I LOVE ME SOME RATCHET. It was loads of fun and I just wish It had been longer. ;-; Maybe insomniac has a lovely present for us in the 2014. I sure hope so, considering I can't play one of their 2014 titles seeing as how I am xbone-less.

Top 5 Favorite Characters:
There really wasn't any new stand out characters this year for me. JUST LOTS OF JORHAN STAHL and the same old guys from dxhr we all know i like. :b

Game that induced the most rage:
Honestly out of the stuff I played this year? Probably Last of Us. lol.

Erm, and the infamous boss fight on hard AND challenge mode on Into the Nexus. The ENTIRE GAME had been easy as cake until the final boss. I spent over an hour trying to win that sack of crap. and when I did, I felt like I truly deserved that platinum trophy lol

Game I want to get back to eventually in 2014:
Fuse. ALL THE RATCHETS. ALL OF THEM. (except maybe 1 and 2, since I just beat them). inFamous (I feel like this will happen before March because reasons), ps all stars.

AND I ALSO WANT TO PLAY STANLEY PARABLE (my comptuer can run this!!) and alan wake (still can't run this but SOMEDAY /wistful stare)

FOR FUNSIES here is my list from last year, with games crossed off that I actually did play again.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution (YES AGAIN), inFAMOUS (yes again), I Am Alive, Tokyo Jungle, Just Cause 2, Batman: Arkham City, PS All Stars, Spec Ops: The Line, Heavy Rain.



Games from previous years I replayed (at some point) in 2013:
Ratchet & Clank
Ratchet & Clank 2 (this is the HD version vs the ps2 one, but its the same game so shh it counts)
Ratchet: Deadlocked
Earthworm Jim
Tokyo Jungle
DXHR:DC (still counts even if it was the director cut. same game essentially but with my favorite glitch patched out)
Heavy Rain
Killzone 3

I'm predicting I will play DXHR again and Tokyo Jungle some more next year. SOMETIMES I JUST CAN'T IGNORE THE URGES.

also wow fail I didn't use my vita at all this year. lol. That will change this year, I think, because I got me some new games for it. Aww yeaaa.

i'm still sorry bioshock. someday......~~
