10 Great “After Christmas” Game Purchases

best-of-2013-intro

So I was asked if I could try to compile a list of what I thought were the best games of 2013.  To be perfectly honest, that’s a pretty hard thing for me to do, especially given the fact that I rarely get the chance to finish most of the games I play.  Instead, I’m going to present to you a list of games that are definitely top notch and that I think I worth investing your time in.  They may not necessarily be the best of their breed, but they are ones that stick out in my mind for one reason or another.  And be warned right now, there will probably be some that you’d expect to see on this list that won’t show up, in large part because I probably have not even played them yet.  Now that we have the ground work laid, let’s get on to the games…

Hero of Many in Review – Lack Of Action Doesn’t Mean Dull
