          I think Red Dead Rocks!! While the online multiplayer rocks too, it seems to be lacking in gang hideouts. I think there should be more, for example..Bearclaw camp, Tanners reach, Aurora basin, Nekoti rock, Cochinay, Wreck of the Serendipity, Torquemada to name but a few. Hows about it Rockstar?

                  Congratulations Rockstar, thoroughly deserved win guys. Few developers can come close to the quality that you guys put into your games :D

                  Everything about the game deserves this win, its deserves no less than Game of the Year.

                  Well done guys ;)

                    This is definitely the best game out there no matter what some loogans may say, it rocks man!
                    Started playing and haven't even thought of playing any other game since (they all pale in comparison), ready for a new patch for Multiplayer anytime you guys want to bring one out!

                        Congrats R*. It is well deserved. In a land surrounded by sci-fi space shooters. U guys went and did something truly unique for this day and age. First RDR, now L.A. Noir. Keep up the excellent work.

                          Game of the year! NO,
                          Game of the decade I say!
                          Now hurry up and announce a prequel DLC with John's outlaw days!
                          John Marston is such a great character he truly deserves one last ride into the sunset!

                              Did this "Game Of The Year" win come before or after the patch that ruined Undead Overrun. I Cant believe That this game won! It's a slap in the face to myself and everyone else that bought this game on the first day it came out and to all of us that spent months playing it trying to get the perfect score. To have it taken away by R* because people didnt know how to use the "Vote to Kick" option against pain in the a** roof camper's. I'm sorry but there is no way this should have won game of the year, I give it one thumb up for being a great and enjoyable game, but I also have to give it a big BOOO on R* behalf for giving us a frigin sweet a** game, and then taking it away. I really hope it dont happen with L.A. Noire!

                                you realize that they are given you the answer you want.
                                they repeat over and over again that they currently have no plans (equals NO) to bring RDR to the pc, and then they tell you that if they do make plans then they will let everyone know(meaning its still NO but if they actually do they arent goin to leave you hangin) what more of an answer do you want from them, they are given you a simple and polite answer, do you want them to tell you "no get over it" or somethin because thats pretty much what your gunner for.

                                their answer is clear and simple if you can't see that its your problem, if you want to keep askin them for the pc version in hopes it will push them to actually maybe want to then go for it, thats cool, because i would probably do the same if i wanted it on pc also. But stop askin for a different answer when you choose not to see the one they give.
                                Acceptance is a powerful thing.

                                        Rockstar why are u replying the same to those who were asking for pc versions of rdr for more than 10 months.we have been waited too long and not even an announcement for pc you have made.atleast please say that it will come in the future or not.please dont reply the same over and over again for ten months.say something different about rdr pc.we have been waiting for rdr pc and got very much dissapointed.if you say rdr will never come to pc then no worries.pc gamers are asking for this game so much because it is the best game made for this gen consoles as praised by the most.
