Among all the end or year lists and best of gaming rundowns I often find myself asking: “What would John Carpenter do.” Luckily he'd be playing games. Giant Bomb reached out to the horror master for his favorites of 2013.

Carpenter, creator of such classics as Big Trouble In Little China, The Thing, They Live, Halloween and many more is a regular gamer and has helped on games like F.E.A.R. 3. He's even expressed interest in making his own survival horror game. Let's hope he sees that through. But for the mean time he's released his top games of 2013 and some of them may surpise you.

Check out John Carpenter's Best Video Games of 2013 unedited as originally published in Giant Bomb:
