The best game to play on a full couch this year. Sportsfriends Separate these games out and they may sweep the category. Add them together and they are an unstoppable good time. The bruises suffered from JS Joust rival those suffered from our Pole Riders. There’s something for everyone here, every time. Finalists The Jackbox… Continue reading

The 2014 Grimmys: Mobile Game of the Year

The best game we played this year on any mobile platform. Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Hearthstone is too easy to play, not to play it. Not just because it’s the most accessible collectible card video game, well, ever, but because that game experience transfers so well between a desktop and a tablet. For most of us, it’s… Continue reading

The 2014 Grimmys: Co-op Game of the Year

The best cooperative game we played this year that only got better with our best gaming friends.

The 2014 Grimmys: Best Looking Game of the Year

Graphics and style are all a part of the package. Don’t overthink this. Is this game good looking or not? This game made our eye holes the happiest.

The 2014 Grimmys: Best Moment of the Year

No matter your preference of drama, comedy, or action – this is the standout memory in gaming that will stick with all of us.

The 2014 Grimmys: Tingle Award for Worst Character

It’s quite simple, the mere existence of this character is offensive and a detriment to video games. Go away. Narrator – Valiant Hearts: The Great War He almost derailed us entirely. This narrator should stick to doing voiceovers in music videos or movie trailers rather than attempting to tie together the plot of a heartfelt… Continue reading

The 2014 Grimmys: Comeback Award

We had almost given up on these franchises either because they were starting to suck or they had been gone too long. The triumphant return of this franchise will be remembered until the next one. Alien: Isolation How many times has a game starring a xenomorph let you down? My counter says, every time but one… Continue reading

The 2014 Grimmys: Mr. Dave Award for Best New Character

In honor of the greatest create-a-character in Horrible Night history, we do not take our relationships with video game characters lightly. This new character stole the show. Fergus Reid – Wolfenstein: The New Order Sorry to those who chose Private Wyatt, but Fergus is the man. He manages to be the biggest fan of Blazko (the… Continue reading

The 2014 Grimmys: BFG Award

Overachievers are fine by us when they blow our minds and exceed our wildest expectations. This game in particular didn’t have to try so hard, but we’re happy it did. South Park: The Stick of Truth The best case scenario after Ubisoft salvaged this game from THQ’s bankruptcy was that it get released but would… Continue reading
