#2. RED DEAD REDEMPTION
Systems: PS3, 360
Release Date: May 18
For a while, we thought we were the only people excited about this game finally coming out. Then it fucked around and sold more than 5 million copies. Yes, a Western game. And yes, it deserved it. Huge open-world freedom, great writing—just in case you doubted it was Rockstar, have some cannibalism and necrophilia to go with your hooker-hogtying—and truly addictive gameplay combine to make this one of the best reasons we can imagine for spending $60. We've spent hours picking flowers, people. FLOWERS. So get at us if you need some wild feverfew...or if you just have some tips on how to use our short time on this Earth a bit more productively.
