After a year in which we've celebrated some of the best games of the past generation and the inspiring new wave of next-gen titles, it should come as no surprise there were some truly outstanding screenshots taken in 2013.

We scrutinized just about every pixel we could to arrive at our decisions, but we were finally able to compile a collection of the Most Beautiful Screenshots of 2013.

It's been another phenomenal year for video games, and the launches of two new next generation consoles has only added to the awesomeness of 2013.

Though the Wii U had an auspicious start, with a small library of titles available for play, this year saw more major releases hit the platform, which is why we're doing a list of the Best Wii U Games of 2013. Its catalog of titles is still growing, and with the Year of Luigi, Nintendo had the opportunity to drop some great new titles on its console.

Well, by miss the bar we mean they clanked their head on it and knocked themselves out. Whether they are misunderstood or cheap grabs at tie-in money they are all pretty awful. For your enjoyment (and avoidance), here's our list of the Worst Games of 2013.
