Look, I’m going to level with you fine readers. I’ve spent the past week hip deep in Red Dead Redemption 2, gleefully shootin’ and hollerin’ my way across the old west. Or the new west, whatever the story might be. I haven’t done very much critical thinking beyond whether or not to rob that stage coach. So how about a list of other storytelling genres video game developer Rockstar could develop games for?
The beauty of a Rockstar game is in the immersion. There are plenty of well-made sandbox games out there, but none reach the depth of world like a Rockstar game. From growing and styling your beard to polishing your guns to tracking animals to realistic mud physics, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a work of art. It’s a game where I like to just walk around, because it wouldn’t fit the story/world/character if he sprinted everywhere.
So Rockstar needs to abandon whatever money-making plans and start whole new franchise! They’ve got cops & robbers with Grand Theft Auto, they’ve got the wild west with Red Dead Redemption and they’ve got a boarding school setting with Bully. Join me after the jump for some loosely imagined other options!
I probably say this every time a new Rockstar game comes out, but check out the graphics on Red Dead Redemption 2! How does this game look so damn good?!
Coincidentally, I have the week off from work when this game comes out, so I think I’ll be enjoying my staycation! Releases Oct. 26.
A new video has come out detailing the landscape and the gameplay mechanics of Red Dead Redemption 2, and the game appears to be quite breathtaking.
Now I’m even more excited! I can’t wait to get my hands on his game on Oct. 26, and I’m so glad I bought that Playsation 4 a couple months ago to play this! Looks like a game of pure beauty!
Good news, everybody! I went and splurged on a Playstation 4! So games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and the upcoming Spider-Man game are now within my sights. I gave up on consoles a couple years ago because Steam on PC was giving me everything I needed. Looks like meat is back on the menu, boys!
My favorite games these days are over-the-shoulder, open world action RPGs. Give me a main story mission, a bunch of optional side missions, a good narrative, some character customization and leveling, a bunch of collectibles to find, and you’ve got me hooked! I loved Witcher 3. I lost myself in that game.
But I’m running out of those kinds of games of Steam. And the response to the new God of War game was so good. So I went for it and am back in the console realm! And just like everybody else, I’m salivating over Red Dead Redemption 2! Holy guacamole, that game looks great!
We’re all excited for the Red Dead Redemption sequel! The first game was a brilliant cowboy adventure, and the sequel should be even better! See for yourself!
Looks great! Lots of cowboy action!
The problem is that I only game on PC now! And there probably won’t be a PC release of Red Dead Redemption 2 for a long time. So all of you console people get to enjoy this game! Lucky jerks!
