This was a long-ish but fun read. I was never a fan of Westerns or Red Dead Redemption itself for that matter, but the history behind it is a different story haha.
Have you played it?
Yes I have. Fully. Even got every single beaver pelt for that one pesky achievement
I prefer fantasy (Dragon Age, Witcher, Skyrim) or Space/Future (Mass Effect, Fallout) more. Riding around on a horse with realistic weapons just…seems like something I could potentially pull of in real life. I can’t summon an ice elemental though.
I loved breath of the wild and I love westerns so I thought about picking up red dead redemption, but I’m afraid if I start playing it I won’t stop.
I haven’t played Revolver, or RDR1, but I have played RDR2, and that’s a great game. It feels a lot like a reskinning of GTA, but that’s not really something you can knock it for. And there’s something appealing about the wild west as an environment. It definitely has more of a BotW feel to it.
It isn’t as open-ended as some of the other RPGs I listed. You will ultimately run out of primary and secondary quests without spending 200-ish hours. If I remember, the entire game took me about 40 hours to complete.
I have not played RDR2, but it is on my list to play…once my daughter goes to college in 16 years and I have more free time haha.
Same here. I was watching videos on the pc version a few months ago, and was blown away at the detail and graphic quality.
I’m afraid to start it
