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.
