The lights are on
Right now, my game of the year is a toss up between Red Dead Redemption and God of War III. Both of these games deserve a 10 in my book, and both bring something different to gaming. When it comes time cast my vote for Game Informer's annual Game of the Year awards, I'm going to have a hard time ranking one of these games higher than the other. In terms of the impact that these two titles have had on gaming as a whole, God of War III really didn't make much of a ripple, whereas Red Dead Redemption continues to be played and talked about. If the year could be defined by one game so far, I don't think there's much of a contest. It's Red Dead with a bullet.
Red Dead is also making quite a name for itself in gamer culture. The latest person to be inspired by John Marston's exploits is LEGO builder BrickTrooper. Along with two incredibly detailed minifigs for John and his son, BrickTrooper has created agent Edgar Ross, and gang members from Dutch's and Walton's respective crews. Yet again, I hope LEGO sees these custom figures, and hires BrickTrooper to recreate them for retail sets. Video games are the perfect fit for LEGO. I hope Prince of Persia isn't the only license that gets tapped.

Those are some sweet looking legos. If only every videogame had lego figurines...
That is amazing! John Marstons revolver is a tad oversized though. Reminds me of Sam's gun from Sam and Max.
ratchet and clank legos! yay!
and god of war!
Legos make anything better. It's been a long time since I touched Legos.
As always, great detail in a whimsical way.
I haven't played GoW3 yet but I plan to before the years over. Still have to beat GoW2 first though. I know i know a bit late but better late than never. But I agree RDR is by far my favorite game this year. Right next to Mass Effect 2.
I'm having a hard time figuring out who is which character.. why does Marston look like Jake Gyllenhaal from Prince of Persia?
very creative, good job.
sorry, not seeing it...
That guy with the eyepatch is ugly. But Marston and Son (inc) kick EXPLETIVE
I totally agree with you. Having played God of War III and Red Dead, I can say that Red Dead Redemption is definitely the game of the year, hands down.
I really wish i was creative enough to make Lego figs like these, or any game for that matter!
SICK! I'm disappointed because I thought these were actual retail legos.
I haven't touched a lego since I was like nine but if these were real I was about to go buy some right now.
They need to make these real. Seriously. I can imagine someone recreating the first bar you encounter with everyone with guns pointed at each other in a frozen standoff.
this sucks its a good gaME AND YOU TURNED IT INTO LEGO suckas
Red Dead is great, but we sure have an awfully lot of the year left to be calling it game of the year. Theres plenty of big releases left and the one i am most excited for is Fallout New Vegas. That may be my most wanted for the rest of the year but there are a LOT more. Maybe the game of the year has yet to be discovered...
whoa pretty sick
I love me some creative use of LEGO blocks to create stuff, but these custom LEGO-person have never resonated with me... don't get it... don't like it, but I'm probably just a jerk.
These remind me of the old Western Theme LEGO sets I had about 12 years ago. Those were awesome! Red Dead LEGOs would be equal to or greater than that awesomeness, more than likely.
I really wish that there were ore video game lego sets. Those are the kind of things i would glue and put together, and make keep in my room.
TAKE THE HINT LEGO!
