Okay just like Skyrim, this one's a given. There's no entertainment property like Grand Theft Auto, and certainly no game like GTA V. The game is a juggernaut, a title that just won't stop making billions. It's a runaway success.
Even when it launched in 2013 on PS3 and Xbox 360, the game was huge. The three-protagonist story arc that took us all throughout Los Santos in a carefully orchestrated high-stakes robbery spree was reminiscent to old stylized heist films from the 60s and 70s. There's something timeliness about GTA V's campaign, as if it's captured an irreverent and horribly offensive satirical chunk of our era and froze it in stasis.
There's just so many crazy memories GTA V has to offer, but there's really nothing like playing a brand spanking new Grand Theft Auto. The NPCs, the exploration, the graphics and physics and sheer freedom...all wrapped up with an interesting, hilarious, and very ridiculous campaign made it the best game of 2013.
This says a lot because 2013 saw the release of next-gen consoles, as well as some huge hits like FFXIV A Realm Reborn, one of the best MMORPGs ever made, and AC4: Black Flag. Even with the mind-blowing visuals of Killzone Shadow Fall and the massively addictive "real Diablo III" that was Path of Exile, GTA V was the top dog in this slice of time.
