Best game ever, period.

«That ending!»

There is not much to say, this game is an epic, it really leaves us speechless with what it managed to achieve. Only the epilogue has a lower quality, because it is also too long in my opinion.

It's the best game I ever played. You absolutely fall in love with it, have compassion for Arthur, greatest character ever made. Absolutely amazing! 10/10

This game is what everyone wants on GTA V 
- Nobody bothers anyone
- the game chat is pretty funny considering the fact everyone talks with country accents
- no op weapons for no reasons
- gives everyone what they want
only flaw is that we cant have private sessions or director mode which is fine considering how everyone is in the lobby

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the greatest video game ever made. I’ve never been more immersed in a game than in this wonderful western world.  The story was fantastic. Arthur Morgan is the best character a video game has ever had. The visuals of this game were spectacular (minus a few character models that weren’t bad, but were not great). The sound is great. The level of detail in this game has never been done before, whatever game is second place isn’t close.

Some people complained about the controls or feel for the game. I did not. The game makes you take deliberate actions but I found my Arthur Morgan was a badass gunslinger who didn’t have difficulty completing his tasks. Some people complained that this games pacing (specifically the opening) is too slow. I did not. I think the slow beginning forces you to pay attention to the incredible detail this game has to offer, and it does it in a way where you just think you are discovering things on your own.

This game took ~45 hours to complete and usually I am fatigued at that point and just pushing towards the finish line. I wasn’t fatigued. This game kept me fully engaged and entertained for that long, and it barely has any rpg mechanics. I wasn’t grinding for the next perk or upgrade or piece of equipment that makes my character better and gives me a sense of accomplishment. I was buying Arthur a sweet jacket and trimming his beard. I loved every minute of it. I don’t know how they pulled that off.

Final Score: A++
Probably my number 1 of the decade. 
The greatest Western story ever told. Transcends its medium and becomes one of the greatest pieces ever made. Very few games have ever made me care so deeply for a character’s well being and wanting them to be the best person they can be.
