Top 5 Video Games of 2013

Compiled by drummer Evan Sammons (Last Chance To Reason)  |

Gone Home

5. Gone Home

A first-person adventure that involves no gun-play but is entertaining and emotionally effective in ways that other games don’t dare. I really hope to see more games like this in the future.


Rocksmith 2014 Edition

4. Rocksmith 2014

My ambitions to learn guitar got me messing with this and I’m very impressed with how well it all works. I loved the Guitar Hero games before Activision beat the series into the ground and created a massive surplus of plastic toy instruments. This scratches the same itch, but you’re actually learning some guitar while doing it.




The Last of Us

3. The Last of Us

A well-done piece of story-telling that brings Naughty Dog’s work on the Uncharted series to the next level. This is the kind of game that comes at the end of a console generation and really squeezes every ounce out of the system. One of the best games on PS3.



Bioshock Infinite

2. Bioshock Infinite

The long wait for this game was totally worth it in my book. Irrational Games could have fallen flat on their face with such lofty ambitions for Infinite, but they pulled it off with unheard grace. No game in recent memory has garnered as much intelligent discussion as Biochock Infinite‘s ending alone.






The Legend of Zelda - A Link Between Worlds

1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

A Link to the Past is one of my favorite games so the just the idea of a direct sequel got me craving some hook-shot-ing, heart-piece-collecting, grass-cutting Zelda goodness. While it may not be as epic in scope as some of the newer Zeldas, it’s the only recent game in the series that has no easily-identifiable flaw. Wind Waker had the annoying tri-force quest, Twilight Princess had a 5 hour tutorial, and Skyward Sword felt segmented due to it’s overworld ostensibly being separate from the dungeon areas. ALBW is Zelda remembering what made it great and capitalizing on it.
