So That means the winner is:


Not that many of us are surprised, but I don't believe this is a bias of a Playstation website, The Last of Us was a truly visceral experience One which, I am glad to have put time into. Its good to see some admire Ni No Kuni, I for one couldnt get into it myself last Feburary, but its good to see other people enjoy a JRPG.

I don't know what else to say, alot of my thoughts were put into the Poll thread, but 2013 for me has been the best year for this gen consoles by far, something which will be togh for 2014 to follow - Happy New Year everyone.

Grand Theft Auto V is not a bad choice by any means, it was certainly one of my contenders. The games scope is just outstanding. As I said 2013 was a brilliant year for gaming but better than the lousy year of 2012, by far the worst of this gen.

I have to admit I find it a bit disturbing that only 13 people bothered to vote. Maybe this is just a collecting forum after all. Either that or not many people give a shit about PS3 games - which I've always suspected might be the case.

It is a bit dissapointing, but heck I tried my best to make it engaging, but then I don't consider myself as a collector, I just enjoy good games

I voted! Im sad to see that Ni no Kuni only got 2 votes personally. Obviously not enough people have tried this game cause its impossible to think of anything better.

I did try it, but as I mentioned before I found the game very slow and tedious. I got a good 15 hours into the game as well, but found myself feeling unmotivated with the game and left it there. I think I will try going back to it soon, currently busy with Mass Effect, we'll see how long the trilogy takes me and if I beat it before Final Fantasy X's release in March I will give it my time.

I did try the demo of ni no kuni and wasn't keen on battle system. I have since tried it again and now I can grasp the system better it's ok. I'm going to buy it in the sale once I've sorted a psn card out.

I did the demo too before I got it and it was kind of tough. But once you get used to the battle system, it feels a lot better and more fluid.

How far did you get in the 15 hours Vivi?

I completed the task at Hamelin, so I have playeda a fair chunk of the game to get a feel for it. I've probably said before but my main problem was how up until just before that town you didn't have shortcuts in battle to defend all at once, so up until that 15 hour point I spend a lot of my time clinging for life and running away from the enemies on the battle map just to recharge powers. I was just tedious, to the point where I wasn't enjoying it. I will get back to this one day, well I imagine I will start over now....

Had I voted prior to the close, it would have been for GTA V. I know that's cliche, but of the nominees, it's just the one that I had the most fun playing. The Last of Us was wonderful as well, and I got about halfway through Ni No Kuni last winter before losing interest. But to be fair, I rarely complete RPGs. It was definitely a great game though. As far as the rest of them on this list, the only one I really liked was Metal Gear Rising, although I never played Beyond: Two Souls or Tearaway.

I think most collector's are indeed less fussed about current gen games
