Best Downloadable Game 2013

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon – Best Downloadable Game 2013

Platform(s): PC, PS3, Xbox 360
Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Shanghai
 
This category presents sort of a conundrum since every darn game is "downloadable" now. For a console game, it's easier since we can limit it to games that are only available through download, but for PC titles, we tend to include for the sake of this category indie titles that we haven't featured yet in our awards. So if you're wondering where some of the favorite downloadable games are on this list, they will be featured elsewhere in our awards more prominently.

That said, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is the most impressive among our nominees. Runner2 is an incredible sequel to the first bit.Trip Runner, The Swapper uses fantastic clay animations and voice-over narration, The Wolf Among Us carries Telltale's strength in storytelling, and Resogun is one of the finest launch-day titles for PlayStation 4. But Blood Dragon takes the foundation of Far Cry 3 and improves upon it with badass characters and environments, all while being an unapologetic homage to the power of the '80s. It could have easily been a cheesy game with more style than substance, but it manages to be better than Far Cry 3 and Ubisoft should be applauded for allowing the development team to create something as boldly and awesomely tongue-in-cheek as Blood Dragon.

Runners Up:
  • Bit.Trip Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien
  • The Swapper
  • The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 – Faith
  • Resogun
