Game of the Year 2013

Game of the Year 2013 HQ

The year of 2013 is quickly coming to a close, but before we at Press Play all go home to our families for holiday cheer, we’re going to lock ourselves in a room and argue about video games for hours on end. That’s right- it’s time once again for our GAME OF THE YEAR AWARDS!

We’ll be releasing the five parts of our awards ceremony over the span of this week, each highlighting different categories representing the strengths (and sometimes weaknesses) of our great industry.  Accompanying each article will also be a special behind-the-scenes podcast, giving you a peek into how we arrived at each conclusion. Make sure to visit this page each day of the week to see the new winners, all building up to the final award on Friday! So grab some eggnog, sit by the fire and get ready for the Second Annual Press Play Game of the Year Awards Ceremony!
