2013 Action/Adventure Game of the Year

/ Jan 23rd, 2014 No Comments

The Last of Us Remastered

Whether it is an open world or a linear, cinematic experience, action/adventure titles are beginning to make up a large percentage of triple-A titles. Fans of the genre spent much of the year looking forward to next-gen titles such as Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and Watch Dogs – the latter of which was eventually delayed into 2014. Before the launch of next-gen consoles however, action/adventure titles managed to provide breathtaking experiences and create memorable characters.

The Nominees

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag – Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag took to the high seas to deliver everything ever wanted in an Assassin’s Creed game. While tail missions still haunt the game, missions are less repetitive and side missions are more meaningful. Players will want to explore the beautifully rendered ocean to find every island and treasure.

GTA V – It seems that every game Rockstar has created in recent memory was leading up to GTA V. Rockstar created the company’s largest open world ever. GTA V gives players the groundbreaking ability to take control of three main characters, with the ability to switch at any instant. Using all three is a must in order to see every part of GTA V, from sunrises over the mountains to sunsets at the beach. GTA V earned a perfect 100% review score and an Editor’s Choice Award.

The Last of Us – Naughty Dog created an emotional masterpiece in The Last of Us. The tale of survival evokes a sense of immersion never before felt in a video game. Players truly feel for Joel and Ellie, the game’s main characters, and understand the toils of survival in a post-apocalyptic world. The Last of Us earned a perfect 100% review score and an Editor’s Choice Award.

Tomb Raider – Lara Croft returned to consoles in 2013’s Tomb Raider. The reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise centers around the untold story of Lara Croft’s origins. Shipwrecked and stranded, the younger version of Lara Croft must fight her way off a well-guarded island. Tomb Raider successfully manages to follow in the footsteps of classic Lara Croft title while also carving out a new path for its star. Tomb Raider was given a 90% review score.

The Winner – The Last of Us

The opening sequence of The Last of Us alone could easily be pronounced Game of the Year. The emotions provoked by The Last of Us are unlike any other felt in a video game. The game shows surviving after a disaster is not simply a matter of good and bad but is a constant struggle.
