Red Dead Redemption Nabs Game of the Year at VGAs

Rockstar San Diego’s open-world western, Red Dead Redemption, won top honors at Saturday night’s Video Game Awards, which aired on Spike TV.

It was far from a clean sweep for the game, though, as the only other awards it won that night were for music, one for “Best Original Score” and another for “Best Song,” which was given in recognition of the track “Far Away” by Jose Gonzalez. Red Dead Redemption was also nominated for Studio of the Year (Rockstar San Diego), Character of the Year (John Marston), Best PS3 Game, Best Action/Adventure Game, Best Graphics and Best Performance by a Human Male (Rob Weithoff as John Marston).

Highlights from the awards include:

  • Game of the Year – Red Dead Redemption
  • Studio of the Year – Bioware
  • Best Xbox 360 Game – Mass Effect 2
  • Best Shooter – Call of Duty: Black Ops
  • Best Action/Adventure – Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
