                    RockStarGames Rules 2010 with G.O.T.Y. top honors, & I say well deserved R*!

                    As an "RDR Day 1er" I knew in my heart it deserved high accolades, & that was before all of the love & attention you wonderful geniuses at RockStar poured into that shining example of software that is Red Dead Redemption. Now that I can play liar's dice, kill zombies, hunt bobcats, try my hand at poker, kill Federales, & duck hunt all in one gaming session, I love you even more.

                    Thanks for giving the world the gift of FUN & gaming excellence,
                    in the wrappings of an old leathery shoot-'em up Western.



                    I'm currently on quite the poker streak with a solid showing at several Beechers Hope tables. On my way to $5000 in gambling winnings!

                        Congrats! Much deserved, and the ones you didn't win you probably should have (NPH for best voice acting....really spike?).

                        Can't wait for GOTY edition.

                          Congratulations Rockstar,
                          2011 will be Max Payne 3 GOTY or
                          L.A. Noire ;)

                            Now that RDR has won GOTY, which it definitely deserved, how about making some more quality DLC for it, preferably the single player content ala GTA IV. I just can't get enough of RDR.

                            Oh and congrats by the way.

                                We shld celebrate, maybe with a new dlc prequel of John when he ran with his gang. Possibly, maybe?
