Red Dead Redemption has set the standard of what a wild west video game (or even a movie) should be like. Every element breaths the world of outlaws and cowboys.

Red Dead Redemption, probably the most decorated video game of 2010 as it was critically acclaimed by various gaming websites and even bagging Spike TV’s Video Game Award’s Game of the Year in 2010. Even though it already had quite a long run already, everyone’s still got their eyes on this game as it recently got nominated for several categories in the 11th Game Developers Choice Awards. So what does make Red Dead Redemption tick? What makes the game so compelling to catch the eyes of every gamer out there? And will we see a back-to-back Best Video Game award when the GDCA kicks in?

The wild, wild west. It’s been done, done, done several times already in video games. But in every singe attempt, we see mediocre, skin-deep interpretations that will make us get sick of the theme.

Red Dead Redemption is Game of the Year

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’s that time of the year again, folks. The time when we show our friends, parents, or any other random passerby that people do make a living through videogames. And that reaffirmation is here thanks to Spike TV’s annual Video Game Awards.

It was a night full of surprises and fanboy/fangirl squeals as the show kicked off with host, tv celeb Neil Patrick Harris 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 video games 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). And Red Dead Redemption comes home as king.

Winners available after the break.
