Amazon Ranks The Last of Us “Best Game of 2013,” Ni No Kuni Closes Top 10

by on December 17, 2013 5:17 PM 14

Amazon just published the list of its “Best of 2013″ for games, and The Last of Us received the top honors, followed by Rogue Legacy and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

  1. The Last of Us
  2. Rogue Legacy
  3. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
  4. Tearaway
  5. Grand Theft Auto V
  6. Bioshock Infinite
  7. Rayman Legends
  8. Divekick
  9. Super Mario 3D World
  10.  Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

It’s actually a quite nice list, and it doesn’t just follow popular trends and opinions too closely. I can definitely say that I agree with quite a few of the games selected. It’s also nice to see a lovely niche game like Ni No Kuni appearing in the rankings and (I know many will hate me for this) Grand Theft Auto V far from the top of the chart, for once.

The “editors” that compiled the list on behalf of Amazon definitely have my personal stamp of approval for making courageous and well thought out choices that possibly paint a better picture than those made by many established and popular gaming press outlets.

    For me the last of us is the beet games of 2013 and the one who defined the last generation. Congratulations Naught Dog.

  • Apocolyptica

    GTA V should be #1 IMO, not even close. TLOU was a great game but it’s a one and done game with very little to no replay value.

    • Bankai

      Then how come people are still replaying it months after its release?

      • Apocolyptica

        Same reason why people watch reruns on tv I guess. Still doesn’t change the fact that a new episode every time is better than the same one over and over

    • Bilal Prince- Ali

      Hmmm… well like you said that’s your opinion but also your opinion that it has little to no replay value, when perosnally i think that TLOU is the best ‘well done’ game this gen every detail in that game is sooooo well done that it is the best game, its story is 100 times better than GTA and to be honest GTA V is of course amazing but once you’re done with campaign you move on to GTA : O and GTA replay value drops too. At least TLOU is a game that you play to impress if you get what i mean lol..?

  • cell989

    thats a very noce list actually, for once GTA is not at the top, well picked who ever chose these games in that order

  • Bob Kentmoore

    My best friend kept saying GTAV would be number one, till he played it. TLOU was the best of not only best of 2013, but of the whole generation. Can’t wait for The Rest Of
    Us

    • Bradley Lansiquot

      Have you played infinite? because a lot of the press outlets rate it just as high as the last of us. My question is should i get it because i wasn’t quite blown away by the other two bioshocks’.

      • Trim Dose

        lol Bioshock infinite, somehow it was kind annoying to play the game and follow Elizabeth the whole damn time was frustrating, I stop playing it at 60 % I think.

  • Terramax

    Great to see a Vita game rate so high.

  • Stranger On The Road

    Tearaway made it to the list despite the late release and the fact that it is released on a platform that isn’t very popular….. damn, that says a lot about the game :-)

    Now I have to get it and try it out!

  • Jose David Yacaman

    Nice list. I agree on #1

  • maxleresistant

  • Trim Dose
