Red Dead Redemption 2 review
Exceptional
by The Man With DOOMS Who Sold the World

Red Dead Redemption is a game I always remember. I was a year out of college and sort of didn't know what I was going to do with my life. I remember being down in the dumps a bit living with my roommate in Concord NH. I loved Rockstar games and remembering looking up Red Dead Revolver and it looking like a game I probably wasn't too interested in. I picked up Red Dead being skeptical and it ended up being one of my favorite games. A character you could become obsessed with, John Marston. 

Cut to 2019 and Red Dead Redemption has been replaced. That gunslinger I once loved has been replaced by a caring bad guy who is self-aware of the bad deeds he continues to do. He can't help himself and he knows that, which is probably why I love his character so much. With one of the realist villains I can remember with Dutch Van Der Linde and some of the most realistic gameplay in a videogame, I was enamored for 80 plus hours of gameplay. 

I can't wait to remember it again.

i once played poker for 4 hours against an NPC, i lost. However i did shit myself during the poker match and that was enough to let me enjoy the beauty that is this masterpiece 15/10
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. 
I am not wanting to finish this game because of it's quality, seriously, it is in my top 3 games of life 
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.
