Welcome to Day 9 of AMH’s 2013 Game of the Year Awards. Today we’re revealing our winners of the Best PC Game, Best PS4 Game and Best Xbox One Game. Read on to see our latest winners
Best PC Game:
Another excellent year for the PC has seen an abundance of excellent indie games ranging from Gone Home, Papers Please, The Stanley Parable and Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine, to exclusive hits such as StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm and the excellent but troubled SimCity. Battlefield 4 provided a visual feast for the player while fans sit with their fingers crossed that Rockstar will bring Grand Theft Auto V to the PC, but for 2013, the pick of all PC games was the wonderful Bioshock Infinite. As we’ve discussed already, Infinite packs in an incredible world, exciting gameplay and a plot that must be experienced to truly be understood, add to the fact that an already beautiful game looks stunning on a top end PC and you’ve got the absolute standout on the PC platform for 2013.Best PS4 Game:
Launching a new console is never easy – ask Nintendo, but Sony have worked very hard over the past couple of years to ensure that when the PS4 launched this past November that it was supported by an excellent range of products from first party titles such as Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall, to other exclusive indie gems such as Regogun and Contrast and supported by third party titles such as Battlefield 4, NBA 2k14 and Call of Duty: Ghosts. Beating out all of these titles and JUST edging out Resogun is Ubisoft’s fourth numbered sequel in their biggest franchise – Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Taking the game to the high seas has proved to be a masterstroke in reviving a franchise many felt was showing its age and was on the decline into mediocrity, but Ubisoft have succeeded in returning the series to the prime-time with this latest journey, and we couldn’t be happier.Best Xbox One Game:
2013 was a tumultuous year for the Xbox One, ridiculed from the outset by the core gaming market, the console gradually won back some love thanks in large part to a broad and healthy range of exclusive games from Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct and Crimson Dragon. Third party support was also thriving with releases of FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4, but like on its fellow next-gen console Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag takes the crown as 2013’s best Xbox One game.Check back in tomorrow for our Day 10 winners of the Best Wii U Game, Best Xbox 360 Game and Best PS3 Game, and then the following day where we begin our final countdown of the Top 10 Games of 2013!
