2010 GR Awards: Best Action Adventure Game
Posted on Thursday, December 23 @ 10:34:16 PST by Blake_Morse
In a year filled with Greek god swan songs and clandestine renaissance-era espionage, somehow Red Dead Redemption, the game filled with horse-drawn carriages instead of giant titans and sticks of TNT instead of knives hidden in sleeves, was the best time to be had. Sure, managing the intricate finger dexterity to properly gun down someone while you're riding on horseback may have taken a moment to master, but all the corral shoot-outs, duels at high-noon, and train robbing made up for that in spades. And if all that wasn't enough, you can kill a bear and skin it! A fucking BEAR! Why the hell would I want to spend an hour following around some Italian emissary just so I could stab him in the back and run away when I could KILL A FUCKING BEAR WITH A FUCKING KNIFE?!?!?
Runners-Up (in alphabetical order) - Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, God of War III, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Super Mario Galaxy 2
