Video Game Awards in Vegas: 'Mass Effect 2' beats 'Red Dead'

The action-role-playing game “Mass Effect 2” won Game of the Year over “Call of Duty: Black Ops,” “Red Dead Redemption,” “God of War III” and “Angry Birds” on Thursday night at one of the top video game awards, at Red Rock hotel.
At first blush, you may think “Mass Effect 2’s” real competition for the award was “Black Ops” since “Black Ops” grossed more than $1 billion in sales in November-through-December alone.

But the critic’s darling “Mass Effect 2” had to beat was “Red Dead Redemption,” as evidenced by its winning Best Game Direction and Best Action game at the Interactive Achievement Awards, in Red Rock Ballroom.

The story is too old to be commented.
