About the Awards
GameSpot's Best of 2010 awards cover special achievements in the field of advancements for games, dubious honors for less-than-admirable qualities, and full awards for individual genres and every major platform. Nominations and awards are the result of rigorous debate among GameSpot's editors, who select up to five finalists and one winner for almost every category (the Game of the Year category includes up to 10 finalists). To qualify for an editorial award, games must have been reviewed by GameSpot between January 1, 2010, and November 30, 2010.
Award categories are intended to call out those games that truly deserve the attention--therefore, while each award is meaningful, it's considered an honor simply to be nominated.
Best Original Game Mechanic
The Best Original Game Mechanic category recognizes games that have a new gameplay style or mechanic, which adds a great deal to the gameplay experience and is a unique feature we've never seen implemented in quite that particular way.

Vanquish kind of looks like any other cover-based third-person shooter, but the game's unusual rocket -sliding mechanic turns it into a whole new experience, since because it acts as both a defensive escape and an offensive setup that opens up a whole new world of gameplay possibilities.
Readers' Choice Voting
Red Dead Redemption is a Western epic, set at the turn of the 20th century when the lawless and chaotic badlands began to give way to the expanding reach of government and the spread of the Industrial Age.
