Well, as far as 2013 goes, I have completed a few games already. I am a very slow paced gamer, I like to take my time exploring the game and get the most out of them. Playing always on a harder difficulty setting and trying to get as full completion as possible. Let's see:
I would say, great presentation, one of a kind world design, great story that will stay in your head for a long time after completing the game, making you think about various story-related nuances a long time after completion. Fairly average gameplay with average and quite limited modern-day mechanics, which where slightly disappointing for me. Good game overall, took me quite suprising amount of time to complete on hard (I was exploring way too much :P). The game wasn't all that hard for the most part (there where some battles where the difficulty level went through the roof though). I didn't go back for 1999 mode and all collectibles.
Metro: Last Light
Finished this game last week or so. Amazing visuals combined with good and fun gameplay. Atmospheric and immersive experience with a lot of small mechanics at player's disposal that increases their immersion even more. It can be sometimes terrifying for some players, though, as a fan of horror games, I didn't found this game to be scary. Great sequel to one of my favorite games, Metro 2033 with slightly bittersweet ending that left me wanting a bit more out of it. Played on Normal Hardcore mode, with no crosshair or subtitles (anything that may obscure the amazing looking world). Gotta go back and grab rest (6 left) of the collectibles.
Just a great open world game. Nice story, nice gameplay. Playing a grab and bone-breaking oriented character for the first half of the game was a ton of fun. Finished it in the early 2013. Got 100% completion and enjoyed every single precent of it.
Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition
I've played a lot of this game back in the day (on a old PC, on my PSX). Some time ago, I've got it from GOG and played it all till the end. Such a great, simple and addictive bag of fun first person awesomeness.
GameBiz 2, GameBiz 3
Went through GameBiz 2 for the third time overall, this time becoming the master or racing simulation genre. Decided to give the GameBiz 3 a try, that finished in... me being crushed later on in the game in my first run... and me steamrolling through everything in my second run.
As I was waiting for a new PC, my brother given my his X360, so I've decided to get this game a go. It's quite fun actually, when you disable every singe driving assist, set the difficulty harder, set the cockpit view and rock on to the rock radio as you drive around like a madman. Completed it 100% in singleplayer, I didn't have time and will to play this game online and my Xbox Live Gold thingy has expired back in 2011 anyway :P
Overall, I'm continuing playing Dark Souls (currently having a break), Borderlands 2 (got bored of it, maybe I will finish it some day), waiting for GRID2 to be cheaper (probably the next game I will play through), left Skyrim behind and started Daggerfall. Having a long break from Planetside 2 and Mechwarrior Online, getting psyhed for buying Unepic and starting another run in King of Dragon Pass (this will be my third attempt actually). That should be it.
Year 2013 was very decent so far for me.
