Red Dead Redemption GOTY arriving Sept. 16?

Since-pulled BBFC listing reportedly says Undead Nightmare add-on to be bundled in new iteration of open-world Western due out next month.

Source: A no-longer-existing British Board of Film Classification listing, as reported on by Gamerzines and Eurogamer.

What we heard: Rockstar San Diego's Red Dead Redemption was released in May 2010 to glowing critical reception, notching GameSpot's 2010 Game of the Year award. Now, it appears the open-world Western will wear its accolades on its chest with a Game of the Year edition from Rockstar.

Game of the Year edition? It ain't braggin' if ya done it.

According to the reports, Red Dead Redemption's Game of the Year edition was listed by the BBFC with a September 16 release date. This listing has apparently since been pulled.

The Game of the Year edition of Red Dead Redemption will reportedly include the Undead Nightmare zombie-themed add-on, which was released in October 2010.

The official word: As of press time, Rockstar Games had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.

Bogus or not bogus?: Given that Red Dead Redemption was named Game of the Year at various publications--and that even games that can't make that claim receive Game of the Year editions--it would stand to reason that the title would see a rerelease reflecting that. And including the content-heavy Undead Nightmare add-on would not be a wild proposition either. If the GOTY edition is to be released next month, gamers can expect word from Rockstar soon.

@eva02langley - it can be argued that Red dead is not story-driven, since its more based on gameplay experience, but the script, dialogues and characters in red dead are easily among the best I've come across yet

@stealth6spy I respect your tastes then, but for me they are flaws. If a game isn't peaking any interests, it became a waste of time for me. The best way to peak interest is story. Something immersive that suck you in. This game is not something I will remember in 10 years... well maybe, but more because I couldn't buy the hype and the praising. The 2 best games I played lately are The Witcher 2 (top 10 PC games of all time at IGN) and Heavy Rain which I honestly believed to be the best PS3 game. Unlike you, I need something new and not the same chew up stuff made by the industry. The only other games on PS3 I should look into s Uncharted and God of War, heavily story driven games.

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its a shame they didnt pay homage to the likes of high plains drifter and pale rider with the continuation of the story. I really didnt like the direction it ended up going with the ending and undead nightmare. His son was a whiny git.

Seeing as how I've had the game since release and already got Undead Nightmare this news means nothing to me. Here's a crazy idea. How about making a PC version?

Good for people who don't have it. I pre-ordered it and probably got way too excited for it so it was an enormous disappointment for me, but people loved it so obviously I'm overreacting. Need to find that case and try it out again.

Alright, great, awesome, now go ahead and announce the PC version so I can start getting excited about it already.You cannot tell me they haven't gotten enough requests by now. Oh and uh, just so you know, anybody who thumbs down a post just because they're requesting a game on their platform of choice that should be on there already is a gigantic dick who needs to do the world a favor and hang themselves.Yeah, that means you.

@eva02langley Wow, you just took everything I love about video games, and said you hated them. We have two REALLY different opinions on what makes a good game.

RDR GOTY? for the info on this page i would say "NO Thanks!" Why would i buy a GOTY if i only get 1 DLC mode.... They better release some more for the GOTY before i will buy it... already got the standard edition

Yeah. I've played it on Xbox. Phenomenal game! Even graphically, it was pretty damn impressive. Can only imagine how good it COULD look on my pc. Key word: could. They'd more than likely make another lousy ass port like they did for GTA4. I realize it's 2 different design groups but, still from same overall company. We'd need the ICenhancer mod for this game too....
