The 2010 Grimmys: Queued Up Award

Queued Up Award

Listen, we know you are a good game, no one doubts that, but you just came out at a bad time for us. We’ll get to you next year and know you’ll make it worth the wait.

The Nominees

Fallout: New Vegas – All Fallout games are intimidating undertakings, and New Vegas is no exception. Not only does it have a vast amount of content, but if Fallout 3 taught us anything it is that there is a lot more heading our way for DLC. We may be spoiled in expecting it, but it’s also unfair for a Fallout game to come out among so many other holiday releases.

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – These yearly releases of games can usually be avoided when a series has a down year. Unfortunately, or fortunately, the Assassin’s Creed series only seems to get better with each release. We look forward to stabbing tons of dudes in the face in 2011.

Grimmy WinnerRock Band 3 Pro GuitarRock Band 3 is a great game, but the biggest draw for long time fans and curious real musicians has been the promise of playing the game using an actual guitar. The Fender Squier Rock Band 3 pro guitar heads our way in March, and will be followed by plenty of bleeding fingers and melted faces.

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West – It’s rare for a game to come out of nowhere and be great. It’s even harder to fit this game into your holiday budget when you weren’t ready for it. 2011 seems like a much better time to be Enslaved.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Criticisms aside, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a monster of a game. This isn’t your 8-12 hour adventure romp. You are going to need to set down some serious time to battle the sheer amount of evil contained within this Belmont’s journey. Not to mention that DLC has already been announced for 2011. Keep that whip limber.
