Title is pretty direct, but I'll point out I worded it that way for a reason. You could have spent money for a pre-order you haven't received yet, or maybe you bought something used (is that even possible anymore???).

If you received the game and played it, give a quick opinion.

First for me:

SC2 HotS - I give it about a 7/10. The new controls they added to the game were a huge improvement and get me to play a lot more, but the campaign was a small let down. I still completed it nonetheless.

First game I bought this year was Spec Ops: The Line for $2.50. Haven't played it yet to give my opinion.

Elemental: Fallen Enchantress (1/3/2013)

And the last game I've bought so far this year is:

Elemental: Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes (3/22/2013)

And I haven't even really played these two games. I think I have a problem...

Tomb raider when amazon had that pre-sale deal for $30. It was ok - not bad but I wish it had been a bit less linear and had a few more puzzles. Tempted to bite on the borderlands 2 deal at GMG for $17 but the truth is I have such a backlog I think I'll wait till christmas. I did get Fallen Ehcnahtress Legendary Heroes for free and so far it looks really good. Its very early beta so has a few bugs but I really liked the changes to the interface and combat so far; though it lacks aow-sm complexity in battle.

Technically it was Dark Souls for the PC. It's pretty buggy though I managed to get working on my laptop. I suck at the game so meh.

For PC I've bought:
Simcity (lol)
Tomb Raider
Tropico 4 ($10 on Steam)
Bioshock Infinite

for PS3 I bought Ni No Kuni

For 3DS I got a... well a 3DS and Zelda, Fire Emblem, and Luigi's Mansion (waiting on Newegg/UPS).

Really trying to make better game purchases since Simcity was a major letdown or at the very least buy them below retail cost. I've managed to do that with all the games listed here so far. Last year I bought a lot of trash that I'm not to excited about.

Deus ex: Human Revolution - loved it, apart from the boss fights which felt contrived and broke immersion.

Lol. I think it was Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. Fun game, but it wore out its welcome after a week or two.

I bought some skins for League of Legends. I have yet to make a full game purchase this year.

SimCity...lol. First game I've pre-ordered in a long time. Ah well, I think I got my money's worth. With Amazon it was $40, and I got Dead Space 3 for free and am enjoying it. Loved the first 2.

Spec Ops: The Line was my first PC purchase of '13.

Lollipop Chainsaw was my first console (PS3) purchase of '13.
