It seems that year in and year out, there is nary a lack of new action video games to be played. 2013 should be no different.
The wealth of options, however, provides a challenge in itself: What to play? Well, of the seemingly copious number of options yet to release this year, we've selected five that we thought were worth the most mention.
There were, of course, a number that we had to leave off of the list for one reason or another (SEGA's upcoming title Aliens: Colonial Marines, for example, nearly made it), so there are many beyond the few we've hand-picked.
That stated, we feel that this list of five is a great place to start.
