Wow just wow! I think I played the story 3 times and I am still enjoying it. It`s just perfect the characters, the story, the protagonist! In my mind Rockstar made a masterpiece in gaming! I can recommend it to anybody who wants to play a modern masterpiece of a western game!
An incredible feat in gaming. Truly a masterpiece. I've never played a game that was so consistently and deeply immersive. The story is great, the characters are fantastic, the animations carry weight, the gameplay is slow but that only helps the immersion and cowboy sim feel of it. Pulling from influences in western movies, traditional American folk tales and folk music, the Hudson River school of art, and real history, it creates a world that feels real, lived in, and instantly familiar.
The first and only game that I went for 100% completion. There is no better game than this in terms of immersive story telling, world building, characters you actually care about, graphics and sound. When the end came around (before the long epilogue), I think I actually teared up. No game has ever made me tear up. Rockstar, please stop wasting your precious developing resources on Red Dead Online and make a tru RDR 2 DLC, or get on with your next massive open world project.
