The follow up to Red Dead Redemption is almost upon us and it looks great. Is anyone else here looking forward to it? Here’s the trailer if you haven’t already seen it:
Out of the last generation of games, Red Dead Redemption stood out due to it’s unique setting in an ocean of medieval fantasy worlds and modern day metropolises. Although sometimes labeled as GTA on horses, Red Dead Redemption was a true western through and through. I often give up on open world games before completing them due to their repetitive nature, but Red Dead Redemption kept me interested to the end thanks to it’s great storyline, interesting world, and breathtaking environments (for the time). Here’s one of my favourite non-scripted sections from mid-way through the game:
Given the setting of the original game (the end of the Wild West), it wouldn’t make much sense for Red Dead Redemption to have a sequel, so I’m glad they’ve gone the prequel route, apart from the confusing numbering. Since Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel, I don’t any reason why you couldn’t start with this one if you skipped over the original game.
