As if to make up for last year’s sub par releases, 2013 has already seen some great games and there are possibly more to come. However, in the wake of all this developing hype, some games have lost there well deserved recognition. Although having all these games is a good thing, we shouldn’t lose sight of some of the less publicized ones. The following list consists of only some of those games, but they do deserve to be recognized.
Europa Universalis IV
Sequel to its 2007 predecessor and next game in the EU series, EU4 allows you to take control of real nations anywhere between 1449 to the late eighteenth century. Depending on what time you start in, the nation of your choice is accurate to its real-life counter part of the time. After you start however, is when the game really begins. EU4 will feature a complex political system. Whether your waging war on rival nations or negotiating royal marriages, every action you make may have a negative reaction. Over time you may be able to raise a small, unimportant country into the largest empire the world has ever seen.
Europa Universalis IV will release on PC some time in the third quarter of this year.
Metro: Last Light
Metro: Last Light is the sequel to Metro 2033, a first person shooter taking place in Russia.
