Red Dead Redemption and Bioware claim the top prizes in the recently concluded Spike TV's Video Game Awards 2010. Who else made it on the list?

It was a night full of surprises and fanboy/fangirl squeals as the show kicked off with host, tv celeb violently shooting people in top hats with a machine gun. And if that doesn’t spell peonage, then maybe a couple of trailers from some of the most anticipated for 2011 would. Batman: Arkham City, Mass Effect 3, and SSX Deadly Descents rocked the video game world down to its core.

And an awards show wouldn’t be complete with the awards (duh). , the old western, open-world action adventure game developed by Rockstar Games bagged the coveted Game of the Year award where it bested crowd favorites, God of War III, Halo: Reach, Mass Effect 2, and Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Studio of the Year award goes to , the mastermind of Mass Effect 2, where it most likely went neck and neck with Blizzard Entertainmen, Bungie Studios, and RockStar games.
