Game of the Year 2013

The Last of Us – Game of the Year 2013

Platform: PS3
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
Developer: Naughty Dog
 
Each year we say it, but no year is it more true than 2013: The competition for this category is the fiercest we’ve ever seen. With titles like the expansive and controversial Grand Theft Auto V and the narrative-driven BioShock Infinite, choosing The Last of Us was no easy task.

Or was it? When the GR staff sat down to have this discussion, there’s usually a lot more bickering and disagreement. But this year, we knew exactly who the nominees should be, then all just nodded our heads in unison—The Last of Us was it.

Not only is The Last of Us deserving of being call “Game of the Year”, but it quite possibly could be the game of a generation. The writing, the pacing, the dialogue, the world, the characters, and their relationships—everything is as perfect as it can get. When the credits rolled, I didn’t have any questions. I didn’t need to play it again. I had my conclusion, and there it left me—shocked, emotional, and appreciative of the experience that Naughty Dog had created.

There are so many great games out there. More this year than any other. But there are none other like The Last of Us, and that is why it is Game of the Year.
