I like to do things a bit differently for best console games. Most websites will pick multiplatform games which I find pointless. The best platform specific games should be exclusives. You will notice the Xbox 360 is absent this year and probably won’t show up again. The only heavy hitter (or any for that matter) exclusive was Gears of War: Judgement which was sub-par and below Gears of War expectations. The PS3 had some of the best games this year and was stronger than ever. Sony put a lot of time and money into projects for 2013 and it really paid off. Will the PS3 run this strong next year? Maybe not seeing how the PS4 is already out, but we’ll see.
The Last of Us may have had some flaws, but it was a beautiful game. It looked nearly next-gen and was a truly crafted piece of art for the PS3. It had a gripping story, great characters, and a fantastic atmosphere full of gritty urban combat. There were many fantastic PS3 games this year, but this one shines above all.
