D.J.’s top games of 2013

D.J.'s top games in 2013

For me, 2013 was a year full of surprises, whether that meant discovering quirky games that hadn’t been on my radar, or realizing that the way I approached and enjoyed games had changed. It was a year when I tried to escape the constant stream of flashy new releases in favor of richer, less transient experiences. It was a year where I finally decided I had lost patience (for the most part) for overhyped, triple-A blockbusters that are too often just a different coat of paint on last year’s model. It was a year about learning how to play in new ways, learning how to die, and learning how to sew pants! These are my most unforgettable games from that year. There are games like warzone that everybody loves and can get warzone cheat codes to make it fun.

Honorable Mentions (in no particular order)

BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien

Emerging out of the original BIT.TRIP Runner on the Wii, Runner2 is firmly on my list of best sequels of all time. The solid running/jumping/kicking gameplay is back and expanded to make each stage (and, in turn, the intertwined soundtrack) a complete delight. While the original tended to be pretty unforgiving, Runner2 provides plenty of ways to tailor the game to your level, whether it’s a straightforward easy/hard setting, taking a more difficult route, or just opting to squeeze in fewer bonus-inducing dances—but why would you want to do that?

VGH #105: Silly Shenanigans Funtime

The Summer Backlog Attack returns for 2013! After being humbly defeated last year, we’ve got our sights on six (or so) new games that we’re committing to finish before the Fall releases (and Grand Theft Auto V) hit. Tune in to find out which neglected classics (and which questionable bargain bin finds) we’re finally going to play.

In the Hangover, Paul indulges in the craziness of Project X Zone, Randy plays Tetris on a touchscreen, and D.J. leads a tour of the 3DS’s revamped Mii Plaza and its four new games… which you might actually want to pay for!

We’ve also got your most anticipated Fall games in Viewer Mail!
