Red Dead Redemption
Today we are saddling up as we are continuing our look at the road to Red Dead Redemption 2!
Red Dead Redemption is one of the greatest games of its generation and for some people one of the greatest video games of all time. RockStar really did outdo themselves with this game and created one of the best stories, characters, and settings of any game.
The story sees you playing the role of John Marston. Who is a former gunslinger who used to run with a gang of bad guys. For years, John has left this life behind him as he tries to make a go of it on his ranch with his wife and son. But the past always has a way of catching up with you and government agents take his son and order him to bring in his former gang if he wants to see them again.
The story is just so well written and you really do care about John as he is a far more complex character than you first realize. The story of the game has you going all over the old West, Mexico, and even the cold North. Of course, you are playing the main story, but you get sucked into other people’s stuff as well such as the eccentric Nigel West Dickens and the revolutionary, Abraham Reyes. You encounter a ton of different characters and as well as the main story, there is a ton of side missions for you to do as well.
The gameplay of Red Dead Redemption is that of an open world, 3D action game. You can use horses to travel the land so you can explore or you can hop on a stagecoach. There is just a ton to see and do here from skinning animals, collecting plants and even hunting down bounties for cash!
Red Dead Redemption is one of RockStar games finest pieces of work and a game that should be in everyone’s collection.
