    Heavy Rain? Bah, it doesn't matter. Probably the only reasons Mass Effect is the victor is because it is part of a trilogy, making the story in Mass Effect 2 all the more grandiose, and the range of fantastic outcomes of the story a person can have no matter what path they choose to take. But in the end, I suppose that is all it takes be be crowned with best writing, and I whole heartily agree with G4's decision.

    ALAN WAKE SHOULD HAVE CLEARLY WON. I HATE MASS EFFECT 2. AND DONT NOBODY TALK BACK UNLESS YOU'VE ACTUALLY PLAYED ALAN WAKE.

    While I agree with the nominees chosen for this award, I have to contest the final verdict. 'Mass Effect 2' is a great game; and it deserves recognition for the variables that must have went into its script and the sheer scale of effort that it required. But I can't help feeling that this was the one award 'Red Dead Redemption' had really earned. The script has a tone-perfect sense of dark comedy, synthesizing the familiar and the bizarre with the tropes of the 'wild' West, told through a marginally enlightened 21st century lens. It brings to mind everything from Pekinpah and Leone to Cormac McCarthy's 'Blood Meridian'. And to top it all off, it earned its ending. It conjures the same feelings one might find when enthralled in a great novel or film, when the story seems as though it has reached its breaking point for catharsis, but you look at your watch, or at the thickness of the pages you have yet to read, and you smile, because--hell yes--it isn't over yet.
