It's well deserved. RDR is a superb game.

My friends all said Red Dead would lose to Reach or Black Ops when I bought it that faithful summer night....



They were wrong.

Glad this won instead of the same exact games that come out every year that have zero originality and change the brightness/contrast and call it updated graphics.

I just got the whole undead collection two nights ago and f*ck me running sideways, this add-on is awesome. It fills in for the little extra exploration/ odd things todo perfectly from what vanilla left out. Hope they add more dlc later on.

lol@Starcraft owning everything in the actual voting.

Starcraft II was the GOTY imo. Not a bad choice, just not quite the best.

Starcraft "Owned" because of ballot stuffing.

GOTY in all of it's forms from IGN, Gamespot to the VGAs is all extremely objective. Don't get too butt hurt everybody that your favorite game wasn't picked by a random editor of a website.

Cool news. RDR is my game of the year so I guess I have to agree with the editor's decision.

Right! I'm gonna post this here - Red Dead Redemption was the biggest disappointment of 2010. It's not the worst game of the year, but compared to how hyped I was for it (check the RDR post count - me and Old_Benkenobi (remember him?) are still the most frequent posters) I couldn't feel more let down.

My main problem was the "har-har we killed the protagonist" gimmick, which I thought was immature, wise-ass, whatever!. Then there's the missions, too many ride halfway across the map for a few seconds shooting missions which became a chore, especially Mexico.

Multiplayer. Bringing up a weapon wheel in the middle of a gunfight every time you want to switch out, killed it for me.

I got RDR on the day of release, and since three days later when I finished the story, I haven't even put it back in my xbox. I haven't even downloaded the free DLC, which looked good but man...I can't be bothered. And I haven't posted in the RDR topic since then either. confused.gif

Mass Effect 2 was far and away the better game, but that's all big decisions and visceral combat. Butthurt? I couldn't be more butthurt if I had a red hot poker up my ass.

Well said II J0SePh X II. I too bought on release and dont get me wrong, graphically stunning, decent gameplay and new mechanics but so VERY overated and seemingly so just because it's by R* and they did GTA!

Red Dead Redemption is so freaking boring to me. The first time I played it I stopped after like the 6th or 7th mission. It was really just dull for me. I tried giving it another shot again recently and the outcome was the same. It's just not my game. I guess I'm not into the whole western, horses, thing.

I would say Black Ops for GotY for me. I've been having some extremely good times playing zombies with my friends and cousins. But then again, competition was pretty weak these year anyways.

Word. Me2 all the way. It really is the best game of 2010. It does everything right and it does a great job innovating RPG/shooter genre.

This!

Don't get me wrong, RDR is a great game. But I spent much more time playing ME 2. May be it's just because I'm not THAT much into the Cowboy and Western thing...

IMO should have been BATTLEFIELD Bad Company 2 if RDR hadn't have won! Best fps on consoles, balanced gameplay, decent support and some good DLC! All those add up to a great game.

BC2 (+ Vietnam) mayb deserve it but on the other hand, 'simple shooters' for GOTY is kind of wrong. But still, if they'd go for a shooter it'd be BC2 (+ Vietnam) and not Black Ops or Halo Reach (both don't deserve it in any way).

New Vegas stole my heart this year. The only game I spent so much time in/on this year. (apart from multiplayer shooters).

Morale of the story....don't get hyped up over a game. No matter how good a game looks and then plays it's never going to even match the expectations that people had.

There were quite a number of decent games this year and the winner wasn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, no matter who won there would still be complaints.

RDR was a good game, it had it's boring moments and it had it's good moments.

This.

I have played this game every month since it came out in January and it hasn't bored me once, hell there are probably things I can still do/hear in the game, I love ME2 and it deserves a bunch of GOTY awards.

The cut rate indie boys stole the show this year in providing genuine gaming joy. I found more gulps of fresh air in the smaller titles, Meat Boy, Limbo - Deadly premonition than I could find in the bigger Fables in Space or Niko woebegones in the west.

If by Fable in Space you mean Mass Effect 2 then you are completely wrong, they may be RPG games, but they're 2 very different RPG games.

Except that Mass Effect 2 was more awesome than I thought and I was hyped for it like a motherf*cker. But Bioware just doesn't know how to disappoint. The word is not in their vocabulary.
