2010 GR Awards: Best Action Adventure Game

Posted on Thursday, December 23 @ 10:34:16 Eastern 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.

Runners-Up (in alphabetical order) - Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, God of War III, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Super Mario Galaxy 2
