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.


    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,
    The Last of Us;
    Not sure what else

    Dark Souls!

    Wait. That's not right.

    Dark Souls!


    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

    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
