Spike TV had their Video Game Awards show last night, and while not quite as prestigious as the Academy Awards, it’s still big time stuff in the world of gaming.

The big winner this year was Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar Games/Rockstar San Diego.  Not only did it pick up Game of the Year, but it also got Best Song in a Game, Best Original Score and Best DLC for Undead Redemption (yes, the zombies).
