It was a long 2013. 

The gaming industry gave us two shiny next-gen consoles, a slew of amazing games from both indie and AAA developers, and a chum filled basement of not-so-great titles that will never go on to become annualized franchises. 2013 was a year for whale hunting pirates, meth running hoods, and a selection of some of the more memorably odious dreck ever burped up. Shovelware, heinous cash grabs, and the officially licensed, movie tie-in all made multiple appearances throughout 2013.

Three cheers to the trash.

It's too bad the list couldn't have been longer. Here are the worst video games of 2013.
