    Red Dead Redemption, Enslaved, God of War lead IAA nominees

    Rockstar Western leads the pack with nine nods for Interactive Achievement Awards, Namco Bandai action game and Sony's mythological trilogy capper secure six nominations each.
    If it's an honor just to be nominated, no game has been honored more by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences this year than Red Dead Redemption. The AIAS announced the finalists for its 14th annual Interactive Achievement Awards, giving Rockstar San Diego's open-world Western shooter nominations in nine different categories--including Game of the Year--more than any other title.

    Red Dead Redemption could be adding to its trophy case.

    Red Dead Redemption has already been named GameSpot's 2010 Game of the Year, and was among the nominees for the Game Developers Choice Awards' top prize. It also garnered IAA nominations for a swath of categories including Outstanding Innovation in Gaming, as well as Oustanding Achievement nods for animation, game direction, sound design, and more.

    Rockstar San Diego's latest isn't the only game with a chance to take home a posse of IAA awards. Namco Bandai's action game Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and God of War III also scored a half-dozen nominations each, with the latter title staking its own claim to the Game of the Year honor. Other nominees for the AIAS Game of the Year include Treyarch's best-selling Call of Duty: Black Ops, Bioware's sci-fi role-playing game Mass Effect 2, and the breakout iPad gaming hit Angry Birds HD. (The standard version of Angry Birds for the iPhone was actually released in December 2009.)

    It's so funny because i really thought that Red Dead was overrated i myself liked the first one for the ps2 wayyyy better than Redemption, As for enslaved i played it once and i wasn't too happy with it but different strokes for diffrent folkes.

    for the Outstanding Achievement in Online Game Play, I would love to see Assassin's Creed take it. Honestly it was a new concept that I felt worked nicely for it style.
    Like CoD been there several times,
    Bad Company 2 pretty good but it isn't exactly new
    Halo Meh
    Starcraft didn't play so can't comment

    Though I do doubt it will win, It would be a nice change from the typical FPS winning.

    Though for the others Red Dead will probably clean up, God of War or Mass Effect will take art direction and visuals and original Compositions I hope goes to Fable that had a superb soundtrack (especially Reaver's Mansion)
