To start the year off, let's look at what Peter Molyneux has said about Grand Theft Auto V when he was asked by EuroGamer what his Game of 2013 is:
"That's easy. It's not only my game of 2013, it's the game that defined the last generation, and that's obviously Grand Theft Auto 5. It was stunning, in every way. The word is stunning. The realisation of the world. The refinement of the gameplay. The fantastic Trevor character. I just feel I am Trevor. I want to be Trevor! I've never empathised with a character so much! It was perfection. The bastards.
"They do have an awful lot of money, but other people have spent an awful lot of money. They've spent their money well. It defines this generation in a brilliant, amazing and incredible way. It's defined what a free-roaming game is, defined how you can weave a story into that free-roaming game. And all the mechanics I felt were pretty solid."
