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.
Most Improved Sequel
You could say that a video game sequel is the developer's chance to correct the mistakes and refine the ideas that didn't quite turn out how they were supposed to the first time around. But while some sequels are baby steps, others are more like giant leaps. These are the games that left their predecessors in the dust.

Red Dead Redemption is the successor to Red Dead Revolver, and it's also intended to be a redemption for a predecessor that wasn't very good. This sequel outdoes the original game in every conceivable way.
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.
actualy red dead is a sequel... but not really, seeing as it's a completely different game from red dead revolver.
Dude! RDR is NOT a sequel! RDR is an amazing game. The greatest video game "western" ever made, but it's not a sequel.
Don't get me wrong, I loved Red Dead Redemption, as the host alludes to, this is not a true sequel and therefore should not qualify in this category (plus it's such a good game it's bound to win other awards, unlike some of the other nominees). I think JC2 would have been a better choice.
