Best PlayStation 3 Game -- PSU 2010 Game Awards

on 7 February 2011

The nominees for Best PS3 Game of 2010 are...

And the winner is...

Though it faced some tough competition in 2010, Rockstar San Diego's Red Dead Redemption absolutely blew us away with its engaging plotline, sumptuous visuals, and intense action sequences. Like many games nowadays, Red Dead Redemption astounds at first sight, but its subtleties continue impress five, ten, even twenty hours into the experience (we still can't get over the game's gorgeous day/night cycle). With all sorts of characters and critters scurrying around, Rockstar's Old West is expansive but certainly not desolate; in fact, the world positively teems with life. Toss in a superb soundtrack, a comprehensive morality system, and a fantastic suite of multiplayer options; the end result is a polished, creative take on the open-world genre that redefines the western. John Ford would be proud.

And the Community Award goes to...

God of War III dominated the PSU community vote for Best PS3 Game of 2010, amassing a mammoth 43.1% of user votes in the category. Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain snagged silver with 23.9% of votes, while Gran Turismo 5 made the podium with 16.5% of popular support. Surprisingly, our editorial team's winner, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption, only garnered 11.9%. Ezio and his crew of assassins snuck into the rear with 4.6% of user votes.
