WATCH: The Best of 2013 in Video Games in Under Two Minutes

2013 was quite the year for hardcore and casual gamers.

New entries arrived for series staples such as Tomb Raider, Devil May Cry and God of War. Fresh and unique gaming experiences like Tearaway and Guacamelee graced consoles and mobile gaming platforms. Emotional moments sprung up from some of the biggest and brightest video games that graced our consoles. And teh next-gen of gaming officially arrived with the debuts of the Xbox One and PS4.

An extremely creative YouTube video creator named Malcom Klock packaged the best video games of 2013 into one cool video package. Feast your eyes of that cool piece of footage above.

It’s safe to say that 2013 was an incredible year in gaming. 2014 will be even better.

Check out the full description for this cool 2013 video game highlights package below:

2013 has been a landmark year for gaming. New consoles have been released and the older ones have made a fantastic last impression with an incredible line-up of intense and innovative titles. Both mainstream and indie developers have pushed the boundaries of interactive entertainment in 2013, delivering experiences we’ll be talking about for years to come.

These are by no means the only great games from 2013. Your favorite game isn’t missing because I don’t think it is worthy… more likely it just didn’t edit together well with the rest or had to go to keep it under 2 minutes. I also attempted to give some screen time to overachieving indies that deserve the attention, rather than trying to cram in every major release.
