2010 GR Awards: Game of the Year
Posted on Thursday, December 23 @ 15:43:09 PST by Blake_Morse
Out of all the note-worthy titles to grace us with their excellence this year, Red Dead Redemption definitely takes the cake. It wasn't a rootin' tootin' yee-haw cowboy romp; it was a tale of, well, redemption and a dying era in America's history as the West was slowly won over by the Industrial Revolution and cowpokes like John Marston became outdated and obsolete. Sergio Leone would've given his left nut to direct a tale this epic. The visuals were just as impressive with sunsets across the wide open plains of Mexico and bullet time-enhanced gunfights seemed straight out of the The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. This is not only the Western genre done right, but it's also proof that Rockstar is still the uncontested king of the sandbox experience. Let's see if anyone can top the epicness of Red Dead Redemption in 2011.
Runners-Up (in alphabetical order) - Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, God of War III, Halo: Reach, Mass Effect 2
