A new year, and that means it's time to look back at the past. Our annual Players' Choice awards where you get to vote on your favorite games from the year are coming soon, but we're leading things off with the Staff Picks for the best games of 2013 across a range of categories.
As usual, we have our five base categories: Game of the Year, Most Anticipated (for the year ahead), Best Hybrid MMO, Most Innovative, and our Rising Star. But this year, and for all future awards, we're adding a sixth category: Best Veteran MMO. This award is going to be for the game that's at least three years old and had a particularly great year. In addition, it's worth noting that with exception of the Rising Star, Anticipated, and now Veteran categories, the winning games must have been officially launched in the calendar year.

One of the banner features that Panzar Studios highlights on their website is the use of CryEngine 3 in developing Panzar. I don't know if the game engine is solely responsible for the look of the game, but it looks gorgeous. There are tons of environmental details in different arenas, ranging from cold, snowy environments, to lush jungles, to rocky volcanoes with molten lava. All of these environments are created and rendered in lovely detail, and make participation in the bloodsport a real joy.
