It’s getting towards the end of the year, a time where we look back at what we’ve been doing for the last twelve months, so we’ve asked some of GD’s regular writers to tell us about their favourite games and tech of 2013. This is Pip's account.

Forget about spending Christmas Eve with your family. Forget about opening presents – spend your Christmas scavenging for various supplies to keep your community safe. State of Decay is all about survival and community safe-keeping – you decide who joins your home, help on numerous tasks, from killing dangerous Feral Zombies to finding missing survivors or cleaning homes of zombie infestations – whatever you choose, a huge open map awaits you full of houses to explore...

State of Decay also has many RPG features – all characters are unique and have different traits which affect your daily duties - from combat to simple cooking or escaping from hordes.

There are a couple of places you can call home, each with their own advantages and disadvantages and the game allows you to build new rooms, provided you have enough space and materials. You can build infirmaries, bedrooms, kitchens, training areas and more!

State of Decay provides an enrolling Zombie Surviving experience for a very low price. The game has gotten and will keep getting constant updates, as well as DLC.

This year's Christmas will be a bloody one. Kill those freaks and protect your people!

What's your Game Of The Year 2013?

Exactly. Here's my problem! DayZ on an empty server is boring, and this seems to be exactly that! What "enjoyable factors are there? :( Want to buy it but... :/

The devs spoke about adding co-op but in the end it would have taken a lot work and they would be basically manipulating the games engine. http://www.videogamer.com/xbox360/state_of_decay/news/state_of_decay_isnt_getting_co-op_update.html

I have no problems with games that has been ported to the pc, but i have a problem when they label it "early access" and then only work on stability and controls.

When it first came out on the pc it didnt support m/k and when it did you where better off still using a controller because the controls sucked, there was also some performance issues with the game where maxing out the shadows just caused your game to die and from high to max it made no difference just destroyed your fps.

I liked the game but the dlc was a little to pricy for what it offered still bought it though. The dlc got old pretty quick for me after going through it a couple of times even with the few extra stuff it added.
