The IncGamers 2013 Readers’ Awards are live, come vote for the year’s best PC games

2013 Readers' Awards

It’s that time of the year when a gamer’s thoughts turn to annual awards. Rather than have us dictate to you the super-best-amazing PC titles of 2013, we’d rather you told us. The IncGamers 2013 Readers’ Awards are now live, and ready to receive the wisdom of the crowd through the medium of democratic choice.

We’ve done our best to divide up many of the year’s finest games into their respective genre boxes, though on occasion the nebulous nation of videogame genres has made this a bit difficult. That’s why we have categories with names like ‘Third Person Action Thingy’ and ‘Genre Defying.’ We’ve avoided having an “Indie” category this year, because we believe that independent titles can stand up against so-called ‘AAA’ releases just fine. To that end, you’ll find games from indies and major publishers rubbing shoulders across all categories.

In recognition of the huge growth in crowd-funded titles on PC, we’ve also introduced an award for the best crowd-funded game brought to release in 2013.

If you don’t agree with the selections we’ve offered you in a given category, or think there’s been a glaring omission, then make use of the ‘Other’ box to do a write-in vote for your game of choice. If we get any particularly good/funny ones, we’ll mention them when we announce the overall winners on 23 December.

As we get closer to Christmas, the IncGamers staff will also be sharing a few of our own personal favourites of the year in individual articles. But the year’s best will be decided by you, the readers. So get on over there, get voting and share it with others so that the voting pool is as large as possible!

    When I click vote, it says “Bad Request” does your website disapprove of my choices?

  • Rushster

    Lazer. We spotted something weird late last night and have been trying to sort it. We think it’s fixed now so give it another whack!

    • Lazerbeak

    • Colonialspew

      Those games aren’t new.

  • Elly

    Glad to see Sim City didn’t make the list, I’d not recommend it either.

  • Mason Tan

    The choice are simply just stupid.How can they not add the much famous one like League of Legend and GTA V. Battlefield and CoD are also not there.I hope you all can reconsider your voting competition and add the choices that really stand a chance on winning the competition.Above are just my opinion and I did not bring any intention on insulting the rest of the game.Thank You

      The derp. League of Legends was not released this year. DoTA 2 just had it’s official release so that’s why it’s there. GTA V is not a PC game. This is a PC gaming website.

      Maybe you have a point with CoD and Battlefield as they are legitimate “new” games but to be fair these are probably shortlists. Most units sold does not = best.

  • Peter Parrish

    We removed CoD: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 from Shooter because the former was atrocious shit on PC and the latter is broken/unfinished on every platform.

    However, you can do a write-in for either of them if you wish.
