Everyone PS3 owner should own or play 'The Last of Us'. That game is so good that it reminds me of the immersive gaming feeling that I had while playing Resident Evil 2 for the first time back in 90s.

Yes, no need to mention that, 'The Last of Us' is also undermined by its technical inconsistencies (freezes, audio issues, auto shutdowns, other bugs), so I have a love-hate relation with Naughty Dog's games.

I'd like to attest to the greatness of this game. I've never played Uncharted or another Naughty Dog game, but this game really spoke to me. The plot was average, but the way it was portrayed through emotions and the awesome cutscenes was just brilliant.

The Last of Us was my game of the year hands down.

I've played it again last week, and was still amazed by the experience.

The Last of Us gets my vote as Game of the Year 2013, followed by Grand Theft Auto V as a runner up for the title.

I don't usually play action games or even stealth games but a couple guys at work told me I should really get Last of US, so I gave it a shot. It was pretty enjoyable, but it's a game you play mainly for the story. IMO there's absolutely no replay value as aside from a few hidden areas, there really isn't anything to miss or any choices to make. I agree with Rory that the combat gets tedious and the gameplay wasn't anything special. Honestly I think it would have made a better miniseries or movie than a game.

Yeah, this game definitely gets my vote for GOTY, and GOTC (C being 'century'), if that's ever a thing.

Also, Rory, I understand your problems with the game. Everyone has a right to their own opinion. But maybe you could've had someone who liked the game a little more write this haha, so you didn't spend the first part of the spotlight explaining why this game was one of the nominees even though you didn't like it that much.

Otherwise, well written. Good job. But more importantly, good job to Naughty Dog.

I really should start playing this game again, I haven't played it since GTA V came out.

Haha, well, the editorial team here at Neo is just RabidChinaGirl and myself, and I'm the only one who played The Last of Us. I'm afraid it was become a nominee with my criticisms or not at all!

Either The Last of Us, Pokemon X and Y or Fire Emblem Awakening should win the Game of the Year.

Unfortunately, we all already know it will go to the incredibly overrated, predictable and downright tedious title that is Grand Theft Auto V. *sigh* Oh well, at least second place will go to an actually good game.

GTA V ain't a bad title, and the work done on it would defitinely deserve some rewarding.

I agree, GTA V shouldn't get it. No where near GOTY material, although it should have been.

(Why has my above post been reported, it's my opinion, it's not like I broke any rules)

GTA wasn't bad, say, 6 years ago, but seriously the fifth is just the same rehashed shit as always with just some tweaks or minor additions to please the masses. At least Pokemon X and Y tried to innovate, and TLOU and FE:A did just that.

A game that brought something brand new and brilliant should win, not an overrated game riding on the success of its predecessors.

Saying that an article is shit, is not really classified as an Oppinion, unless you could explain the reason for it being shit.

Well, you can only do so much to a franchise without making it somehting completely different in which it doesn't feel like GTA anymore.

Although, it has become more realism and less wacky, and GTA IV was probably the leats favorite title for most, that's what Saint's Row is doing now with the wackiness, but they kinda went over the limit with the last title, though.

Could you extrapolate? If there's constructive criticism to your statement then I'd love to hear it.
