Mass Effect 2 vs. Red Dead Redemption for 2010 Game of the Year?

Six months into 2010, with six more months of solid titles still ahead of us. Is it too early to start sizing up Mass Effect 2 and Red Dead Redemption against each other as the primary contenders for Game of the Year consideration? Not at all.

They are both great games but I have a feeling Super Mario Galaxy 2 will get it based off reviews.

God of War 3 for me so far.

TheXgamerLive3056d ago

red dead was hella fun but ME2 has been like no other. Hell, Alan Wake was hella fun, but mass effect 2 has been incredible and Bioware continues to support it, so it keeps on rocking.

There will be other continders later on this year.

ME2 for me too so far, with GOW3 a close second. But why are these articles popping up when we're only half way through the year?!?! There's a lot of big hitters to come this year yet.

would probably get it, but I hope that's not what they base it on. Sure it got a high score, but you can just look at the amount of effort and detail put into other games such as Red Dead Redemption and Mass Effect 2 and I think it blows Mario out of the water.

I thought God of War 3 was tight, but for me it was just like the first and second one. I really thought Bayonetta offered more variety and fun, and this was only Bayonetta's first outing. The games that innovate or push the boundaries get my vote, and with that said I'd put Heavy Rain over God of War 3 if I had to choose. But overall, my top 5 as of now is:

1. Mass Effect 2
2. Bayonetta
3. Heavy Rain
4. Bad Company 2
5. Red Dead Redemption

What about Starcraft 2? Why does everyone forget about PC exclusives and vouch for console games as GOTY?... why! : /

heavy rain imo will get GOTY.

but on topic: i think out of the two, mass effect 2 is the better game, red dead is overrated imo.

Donny3056d ago

wow i had 3 bubbles, and just for stating my opinion i have 2.

Hellsvacancy3056d ago (Edited 3056d ago )

Ill give u 1 (a bubble that is) i like your pic, thats 1 SCARY mofo


On topic: Demon's Souls is MY game of the year, it only got released in the UK last week so technically, it counts as this year

TROLL EATER3056d ago

who cares halo reach game of the decade

It seems that the troll eater has absorbed the trolls that he ate into himself.

jeseth3056d ago (Edited 3056d ago )

Never has a game left me in such awe. The whole game was unbelievable and is an incredible end to Kratos' story.

Also in the running IMO :

Heavy Rain
Red Dead Redemption
Mass Effect 2 (thought about buying another 360 just for this game!)

All in all, GRAN TURISMO 5 will be my GOTY by year's end.


Simon_Brezhnev3056d ago

God of War GOTY for me i played heavy rain, rdr, and me2.

TheLastGuardian3055d ago

2. God Of War III
3. Bioshock 2
4.GTA: Episodes From Liberty City
5. Modnation Racers

ABizzel13055d ago

I can understand why people would choose these two games, but neither did anything for me.

I don't like GTA or westerns, but I gave Red Dead a try anyway, and it just wasn't my kind of game.

Mass Effect 2's problem to me is the gameplay. I love the story and the lore within the game, but the gameplay ruins what would be an amazing game. The 3rd person shooter mechanics aren't good, and going through so many menus all the time takes away from the action. What makes me mad about Mass Effect is that I know it's the type of game I like, but the gameplay is keeping me from getting into it.

If I had to choose right now, it would be God of War with Heavy Rain close by. God of War met my expectations, and was a great conclusion to the series (although I would have liked it if it was longer). Heavy Rain expanded upon the genre started by Indigo Prophecy, and did a great job at showing games outside of the norm.

An unfortunate and yet accurate statement. Ugh.
Thanks Lucreto.

DontShoot-Me-Bro3056d ago (Edited 3056d ago )


Only a Playstation 3 Exclusive can be Game Of The Year.

Sorry to burst your bubble.

frjoethesecond3056d ago

I take it your talking about heavy rain which is game of the year. Sorry red dead, it's either ME2 or HR.
