Red Dead Redemption has been labelled Game of the Year once again, this time by the team over at Official PlayStation Magazine.
... considering not only the other great games that came out on PS3, but also the fact that the PS3 version of RDR wasn't all that great. I would have thought God of War 3 would have gotten it. Or Modnation Racers or GT5.
The PS3 version was just fine. I have it, my son, my brother-inlaw, and my friend. We play together all the time. The game was fine. If people stop releasing comparison videos PS3 and 360 you wouldn't know any difference. As long as the game was not broken.
Not on the fat PS3 it makes your fan go crazy and freezes sometimes. Only games that did that was this and FF13 cut scenes.
So the best PS3 game is a game which looks much better on Xbox 360. Ironic.
I also had it on the ps3 (which is a 80gb one, a fatty) and it ran fine, I never had any freeze or fan problems. I don't know what it was like on 360 and don't really care as I enjoyed myself too much to think about it. I wouldn't call it my GOTY but I don't mind that it got it as it was a worthy contender anyway.
PS3 version is fine, still a gorgeous looking game. All those "OMG Sub-HD version lolol" comments were just overused and overhyped, the vast majority of multi-platforms are sub-hd on both systems. Red Dead is a spectacular game definitely one of the year's best. My GotY was Heavy Rain with RDR at a very close second and I can easily see why RDR has been wining across the board.
Goes to show that the opinions of Playstation fans don't necessarily mirror the opinions of PS3 fanboys. I've seen MANY idiotic comments with people asserting that the media would choose GOW3 as their GOTY...yeah, okay. I've said it before and I'll say it again....I DIDN'T like God of War 3, I understand others did, but I didn't. Maybe now people on N4G will stop forcing it down our throats like they did with GT5. "You not a gamer if you played the ps3 version, Your a stubborn ignorant fanboy thats in denial." So I MUST buy a 360 to play the 360 version of RDR in order to not be a fanboy in ur eyes? Edit your comment...its lacks sense.
There are many real contenders for GOTY, you don’t have to be a fanboy to pick GOW3, it's an incredible game, same for ME2 and SMG2, but IMOO RDR is just a bit better. It's OK not to like a certain game, but to assume others shouldn’t like it is something else.
there was nothing wrong with the PS3 version of RDR, it might of had a few lacking spots in visual details but other than that unless you decide to place both version side by side you would not care. Great game.
CGV, lol..biased much ? :) trying to show that ps3 speicalists prefer mutlis games, how lame :)
But the best selling games on PS3 are multi
How are they biased? They're just posting gaming news, which includes this information on what OPMs game of the year was. Talk about being insecure.
God of War 3 is my game of the year. I would say GT5, but I'm just such a huge God of War fan I have to give my love to GoW3. GT% is a much deeper game though. Hats off the AC:Brotherhood and Mass Effect 2 as well.
I imagine since they did not give a Sony exlcusive the GOTY award, they must also be biased against Sony? MS has even managed to get a playstaiton magazine in their pockets, its a conspiracy!!!!!!!!!!!!
psssst, remember to wait until people actually say things before rolling your eyes and getting all, 'I can't believe you just said that'.
To be fair, bias has already been brought up by fanboys in countless other game of the year threads, as well as review threads and other commentary.
Lets be real for a minute and dont act like every time a sony exlcusive gets poor or mediocre reviews the sony aramda does not start with this Ms bias conspiracy bull. (in fact it could be a good review, from the range of 9-9.5, and still they find something to cry about) i am simply riffing the stupidity of the blind fanboys, which in N4G, the sony fanboys outnumber the Ms fanboys by at least 5-1. The rest of the viewers, which are basically real gamers, cannot make critical comments on sony games without beind slammed by sony logalists. This is evident in pretty much any thread with a review of any Sony exclusive that does not get 9.5 and up. they claim that gamespot, ign, edge, and basically any gaming journalist organization which does not suck on Sony's tit everytime they release an exclusive, are biased. It is really silly, but true.
Dread, you sound like a crybaby that wants N4G to be more like Kotaku, or G4 were it's overrun with 360 fanboys. If every gaming site on the net doesn't see things your way, that makes it, well N4G I guess. I don't understand. If you don't like a site and the people on it, why are you still here? There are plenty of gaming sites that I don't like, but I'm not going to moan about how much I don't like them in the comment section. I just leave and don't give the site another click or a second thought. Actually pretty simple.
@Silly gameAr So Dread shouldn't complain about N4G in the comments section if he doesn't like the way that people who participate in threads act, but it's perfectly okay for you to complain about him complaining? The double standard police want to bring you in for questioning.
It's between Red Dead, and Mass Effect 2 for my choices of GotY. Hard choice to make.
This is getting pathetic. This game keeps getting GOTY. A game does not deserve GOTY just because its different. Im a hardcore gamer thats the only reason I actually finished this game other then that I can't see mass majority of people going crazy over having long conversations traveling on horses or moving herds or taming horses. Its a good game but not that great. Not surprised though, both ME2 and GOW3 deserved it, but since they are both exclusive its better for everyone and the internet if the GOTY choice is a multiplat game
RDR might be one of the most detail oriented games i have seen. I don't even know how they manage to put that much detail into such a large game? I think RDR does deserve GOTY for creating such a believable western world that you can only see in movie (might even be more detail than movie because you actually playing in it rather than just observing). ME2 is also a really great game, although their focus is totally on character development and story driven games. It might be the best at it too. Both deserve GOTY regardless. Should GOTY includes multiple games instead of just one?
