The dust has settled and it’s time that we officially announce our 2013 Game of the Year. We here at IRB Gamer considered a lot of great titles with of course many more to choose from. But it came down to the most innovative, the most unique, and of course titles that made gamer all alike immediately ponder, could this be the game of the year?
Tomb Raider blew us away with the stunning graphics, creative story and the delivery. Bioshock Infinite managed to draw new gamers to the ip and welcomed back those left with a sour taste from Bioshock 2.
Much can be said we considering two of the biggest names in the gaming industry, Naughty Dog and Rockstar Games. Dating back to childhood memories, who in the heck would’ve thought the developers of Crash Bandicoot would literally grow up with us? From the amazing Uncharted series to creating something as phenomenal as The Last of Us. Then there’s Rockstar Games. The quality of their work speaks for itself. Max Payne, Midnight Club, Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire and the entire Grand Theft Auto series. Not to mention, and I’m sure many could agree, GTA V was, and still is prominently one of the must haves with a story driven campaign, outshining many “Next-Gen” launch titles. The question still remains if GTA V will ever release for Next-Gen, or PC for that matter with currently over 650,000 petitions.
