Kotaku Awards 2013: Nominate Your Favourite Console Game Of The Year

Okay — you should know the drill by now! This is the Kotaku end-of-year awards. First week we nominate our favourites, second week we put it to a vote, third week we announce the overall winners. This morning let's talk about our favourite console games of the year!

It's a big category, with a lot of good choices. I personally think that it was a slow year in terms of big AAA titles but there have been a fair few that I've enjoyed. Here are some of my nominations...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Super Mario 3D World Pikmin 3 The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD The Last Of Us

Actually now that I think of it — that's a fairly serious set of games there!

Now I want to hear your nominations. Drop them in the comments below and we'll add them to the vote for next week!

    Super Mario 3D World isn't out yet, so it's a bit hard for the masses to nominate it.

    The Last of Us is the runaway leader for this right now. That might change after I cat suit up.

      Like a nom jesus, I have played and nommed the game so that you may vote.

        More like nom tease-us.

        Nevermind.

    THE LAST OF US (it gets double nominations because I wrote that all in caps — yes, that is totally a thing, shut up)

    Bioshock Infinite - Blends amazing views, good gameplay and a great story all into one great package.

    So you've enjoyed your Wii U then? :P Should an HD remake really be up for a GOTY vote though.

    Obligatory Bioshock Infinite and GTA V nominations

      Yeah... I toiled over that one as well. Still not sure I made the right call.

    Hmm my contenders would be,
    Bioshock;
    The Last of Us;
    Windwaker;
    GTAV;
    Not sure what else

    Dark Souls!

    Wait. That's not right.

    Dark Souls!

    Damnit.

    Blood Dragon.

    That's better. Had more fun with that than most other games this year.

    I think I only played three console games to completion, or at least, to the end of their stories - Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us, and GTAV. I think I'll have to give it to The Last of Us.

    Or Duck Tales HD...

    I think I've mentioned how much I liked this game at least 20 times now.

    The Last of Us.

    Played it through from start to finish 3 times now. You don't do that within 4 months of getting the game unless it's something pretty special.

    One of the best games I've ever played, definitely the best game on console.

    I think it's going to be Tomb Raider...

    What else came out this year?
    Gears: Judgement
    Bioshock: Infinite

    The last of us and bioshock infinite. Thats a tuff one too. The last of us had great visuals and even better gameplay but bioshock had the most memorable story ive seen in a long time.

    You could argue that at the end of the day, The last of us was about zombies/infected, a tired concept in my eyes. Meanwhile Bioshock is a very unique game and was hugely ambitious....Id have have to favour that this time around.

    Oh and GTA 5 was the worse game ive played in years and I was a diehard San Andreas fan.

    I'd be hard pressed to decide between Lego City Undercover and The Last of Us.

    The Last of Us

    Sturmwind [Dreamcast version]

    The Last of Us, there is no contender in my mind although Bioshock might come close.
    Then there is always Dark, or Spongebob Squarepants: Planktons Robotic Revenge, now there is some GOTY year content.

    Bioshock, tomb raider, ac4, batman AO and cod
