Release Date: 09/01/2014

Here at GAME HQ, the Online Team were tasked with choosing their picks of the Best Games of 2013.

Below you'll see our Top Ten, and which everyone in the team chose - and why their favourite was, indeed, their favourite.

So check out the GAME Online Team's favourite games of 2013, and see if you agree with our choices!



#1 FIFA 14

Everything about FIFA this year just feels so much more realistic than before. There's nothing better to play with your mates.



#1 Papers Please

I just like that it was really different. That, and having to choose between what's good for your family, or for total strangers.



#1 Tomb Raider

This game turned Lara from the stereotype she'd become into a real character. And I loved the immersiveness of the island, too.



#1 Grand Theft Auto V

I love the freedom of it, choosing whether to do the missions or just go round stealing stuff. Both are fun. GTA Online is cool, too.



#1 Hotline Miami

Maybe the most addictive game I have ever played! 80's neon visuals, an amazing soundtrack and violent gameplay.



#1 Tomb Raider

Lara came back to show these newcomers that she is still the toughest lady of any generation, and it looked great, too.



#1 Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

The only game this year which I genuinely loved and enjoyed playing. The 3D and the wall merging ability just makes it superb.



#1 Pokémon X & Pokémon Y

A game I will enjoy picking up and playing all throughout the year. With all the new options it's a good dose of the growing Pokémon world.



#1 Bioshock Infinite

A truly breathtaking adventure, which remains both gripping and fun to the end.



#1 Grand Theft Auto V

I played this more than any other game last year and still finding crazy stuff to do in it now!



#1 Bioshock Infinite

Columbia felt like a possible place and, for once in a game, somewhere I'd actually like to visit. And as for the ending... Mind. Blown.



#1 Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

Crickey mun, it's a flippin right tidy game en'it! Youer missin' out if you aint yet played this one mun!



#1 Grand Theft Auto V

This GTA had a little bit of everything, with multiple characters, a massive open world and improved online play. A great gaming package.



#1 Tearaway

Colourful and fun, Tearaway excels on so many levels as it utilises all the features of the PS Vita without them feeling like gimmicks.
