With this being the very last day of the year, and a Tuesday to boot, it only made sense to dedicate this Top Tuesday to the very best games that came out in 2013. The problem, however, is that there was such an oversupply of quality video games this year, picking just five proved to be a task of Herculean proportions. And we'll concede we couldn't do it.
So instead we've put together a slightly lengthier list of 22. An odd number, to be sure, but we just couldn't bring ourselves to cut anything. Even keeping it at that unusual number proved to difficult. A lot of really good games didn't make it, but that had less to do with their quality and more to do with us just not having the space.
And it truly runs the gamut of of genres and format. From mobile games to PC and shooters to RPG's. 2013 most certainly had at least one game for everybody. If you were after smart internal mechanics, Desktop Dungeons or Gunpoint could easily quench you thirst. If you preferred an engrossing narrative, The Last of Us or Ni No Kuni would fit the bill easily. Perhaps you were keen on bombastic 80s sci-fi action, then Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was the game for you.
As we put this list together, we came to realise that because of the sheer variety at play, no one game was truly the outright best game. There was just too many options to consider, but the games below most certainly stand out as the Best. Chances are, you've played at least three or four of these games at some point during the year, so take this list of 22 as a way to fill in the blanks in your game playing resumé.
They're listed in no particular order.

Ni No Kuni
