It's really easy to see why - there are a lot of stupid people in the world. I actually study game design, and one of the first things my lecturer said to us was that it can sometimes be a frustrating career path; you have to cater for stupid people because stupid people have money.(Original post by Madjackismad)
I have and I loved it. I decided to vote for RDR instead because it had everything - story, gameplay, game environment. Mass Effect 2 had a lot of excellent things like updated graphics, slicker combat, but the story was weaker and story is a big thing for me in games. If RDR wasn't released this year, Mass Effect 2 would've definitely had gained my vote.
Kinda hard to see that Bad Company 2 was trumped by Black Ops even though Bad Company 2 was definitely the best FPS shooter of the year.
