Arguably the biggest (and best) game of 2010 was Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption. A spiritual sequel to 2004’s Red Dead Revolver, Redemption followed the story of the former outlaw John Marston as he tries to put the past behind him and move on with his life peacefully. The game was hugely successful and recieved great reviews from both fans and critics.
