The 2012 Grimmys: Best Debut

Best Debut

New franchises need to be celebrated at this stage in video game history. This is the best new idea we’ve seen in a while.

Grimmy WinnerDishonored
A new stealth franchise sounds cool on paper, but it was tough to tell if Dishonored would be fun to play. It turns out that Arkane Studios not only made made a great stealth game, but Dishonored is also a damn good action game on its own. Add in an immersive steampunk setting and some black magic, and we can’t wait to get back into the shadows.
