Adroit Gamer is for those resourceful in approach, skillful in delivery and ingenious tacticians. With another year about to fade in to history, which saw Microsoft and Sony release their next generation consoles I thought I’d share my resourceful, skilful and ingenious games of the year.
Resourceful Game of the Year – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was originally released in 2011, however in June 2013 the Legendary Edition hit stores which includes the full game, plus downloadable content Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn. With the price of the game costing no more than £24.99, this is definitely Adroit Gamers resourceful game of the year. If you’ve yet to play Skyrim then the Legendary Edition is a must, and at this price it’s worth every penny. For those of you who have spent hours in this fantasy land it’s even worth buying the game again out of principle to start another dragonborn story.
Skillful Game of the Year – Diablo III (Xbox 360 Version)
You can read Adroit’s impressions of Diablo III on the Xbox 360 here, and if upgrading your character’s skills is your thing then look no further than Diablo III. I must say that Diablo III is my game of the year, with Blizzard doing a tremendous job transferring the game from PC to consoles. The character classes are fantastic with the Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Wizard, Witch Doctor and Monk all worth playing, with each class having an abundance of skills to choose from dependant on how you wish to build your hero. With Diablo III Reaper of Souls confirmed for the Playstation 4, Adroit Gamer is hoping for an Xbox One release so we can do it all over again.
Ingenious Game of the Year – Grand Theft Auto V
I’ve never been a massive fan of Grand Theft Auto, however, the innovation Rockstar showed with GTA V was incredible, and to pull it off on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 was even more astonishing. The story telling of the three character’s, the size of the overall map and the open world online multiplayer features all set the bar for next generation games, even though GTA V isn’t a next generation title. Most definitely Adroit’s ingenious game of the year.
Let me know your favourite games of 2013 in the comments below, with no next generation titles making it in to my favourites lets hope next year brings a wealth of next generation titles to relish.
