The GamerSushi Power Rankings: May 2013

Fire Emblem Awakening

Can you guys believe that it’s already May? That means it’s time for another bout of Power Rankings. At about half way through the year, I do have to say I’m surprised with the games on this month’s list, and what a surprise 2013 is shaping up to be in terms of variety and the titles available to us. Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite are still kicking strong, but Blood Dragon is a surprise contender out of the blue. And that’s not even mentioning the two 3DS games that are making waves.

So here’s this month’s list of the hottest 10 games that the GamerSushi staff is playing at the moment. I’m actually really looking forward to the shake-ups that are bound to occur for June’s list, when games like Last of Us and Monaco show up in our backlogs.

What do you guys think of this list? What are you playing right now? Go!

1 Tomb Raider +1 Tomb Raider
Possibly some of the best platforming/adventuring available this generation. Also, stealth axe kills.
2 Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
Pretty much everyone on staff is playing this. A hilarious, fun and totally insane blend of 80s sci-fi action with Far Cry’s mechanics. Roll your D20, nerds!
3 Bioshock Infinite -2 Bioshock Infinite
This game is hard to shake. Jeff and Nick are still exploring the heights (and maddening depths) of Columbia.
4 Fire Emblem: Awakening Fire Emblem: Awakening
In this instance, Tactical RPG means Tactical Role-Playing Goodness. A must-play if you own a 3DS.
5 Super Mario Land 3DS Super Mario Land 3DS
What? 2 3DS games in one month? Yes, it’s more Mario, but when is that ever a bad thing?
6 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Community nights and lots of rounds of Arms Race make this multiplayer as addictive as ever.
7 Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm +2 Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm
Our vote is for Nick and Mitch to stream their 2 v 2 games. What do you guys think?
8 Final Fantasy 7 -4 Final Fantasy 7
Outside of Midgar, it’s obvious how much this game starts to drag. Slogging through until Disc 2.
9 Ni No Kuni -4 Ni No Kuni
One GamerSushi staff member has already fallen victim to this game’s clunky battle system. Can Eddy hold out much longer?
10 Battlefield 3 -3 Battlefield 3
Mitch, maybe it’s time to have a sit-down about your love affair with this game.
