I have not played a lot of new games this year.
The game blew me away. It is up there with Radiant Historia and Trails in the sky as my favourite game the last few years.
I have put hundreds of hours(Terrifying thinking on it) into this game. I can't really call it my GOTY but I had fun with it throughout.
Also Ni No Kuni, FFXIV and Harvest Moon A New Beginning are worth mentioning
Non 2013 made GOTY
Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers
The game has aged remarkably well and I had a lot more fun with it than I expected.
Been lucky with games this year but the MMO Ecol Tactics sticks out to me. It was displayed as something akin to FFT gameplay online and I bought into the hype. The game is okay but I was expecting something different.
