It’s finally time for the obligatory “Top 10 of E3 2013” post. I was lucky enough to witness dozens of new games and tech from the show this year, all of which vied for a spot on the list. There was so much hotly anticipated stuff that I had to add an Honorable Mention section for overflow. So here it is: The best of the best of E3, and the stuff that you should be excited to see in gaming’s future.

Consider yourself lucky. You had a solid month to enjoy the DRM jokes, memes, and not-so-subtle jabs from Sony about the Xbox One. To be fair, you probably made some jokes of your own. I know I’m guilty of it. But those days are over thanks to the surprise announcement from Microsoft yesterday, which took back a month’s worth of foggy statements. The Xbox One will not have online checks and will play every type of used game. In other words, nothing will be different. The One will be just like every console we’ve ever had.

“South Park: The Stick of Truth” is much more than just a comedy game than, say, “Chef’s Luv Shack” or “South Park” for N64. The theater demo at Ubisoft’s E3 booth showed a surprisingly deep RPG that looks exactly like you’re playing a South Park Episode.

You play as the new kid. From the looks of things, anarchy has taken over in the halls of South Park Elementary. The students have been split into two factions: one led by Kyle and the other led by Cartman. The new kid has the power to fart at will, making him a powerful ally. In the midst of this battle, the new kid is on the personal quest to “be cool.”

Harmonix is onto the next big thing in the music genre, and it’s “Fantasia: Music Evolved.” Creating a powerhouse partnership with Disney and their massive catalog of content, this could be a huge craze going into the next console generation.

“Fantasia” doesn’t follow the conventional music game formula like “Rock Band” or “Dance Central.” This game brings a completely new approach to the interactive music game by adding creation to its basic principle.

“Project Spark” was the most impressive game on display at E3. It may not get as much love as the triple-A games like “Titanfall,” or “Call of Duty: Ghosts,” but its endless possibilities for creation make it awe-inspiring. Think “LittleBigPlanet” on steroids. And the kicker: It’s free.
