While the graphics are nice, everything else in the game could have been done on PS2 (and was in fact!) Rockstar seems oblivious here to the tremendous advances in games since GTA 3: whether it be the evolved combat of games like Call of Duty and Gears of War, the freedom and player agency of Fallout, or the interactive narrative of Mass Effect. Maybe I'm being a debbie downer here, but when IGN starts giving out 9.7's and people start saying things like one of the best games of all time, I feel the product has to be better than OK. As it stands right now, firing up the box and taking Marston out on the plains feels like as much of a chore as chauffeuring people around Liberty City was.
I agree, it's pretty much GTA in the Wild West. But for a GTA junkie like me, that's exactly what I want.

I played some of the other games you mentioned and I couldn't really get into them. MW and Gears were good but they're still just 1st person shooters. Gets boring real quick for me. And I couldn't last more than 2 sessions in Fallout. Hated that game, all you do is walk around and talk, talk, talk, talk..... Spend the whole game pusing "A" to answer questions... Did nothing for me.

I feel this has always been the case with GTA - you either love them or hate them.

Agreed... I was bored to tears with that game.

Usually I'm a big MW guy but even the latest map pack release hasn't lured me back. I'm lost in Red Dead.

Re: Red Dead Redemption

I really like Red Dead, but I feel like you never get anywhere with John Marston's story. You are always learning about other people, solving their problems.

Red Dead is one of the best games of the year, but not one of the best ever. Its not 9.7 good IGN.

On the subject of Fallout3, I loved it.

Re: Red Dead Redemption

I will say Red Dead is way better then Fall Out 3 and the other RPG Oblivion. You need to be unemployed and have no family to enjoy those games, they are so damn long.

I hear ya Crazy, I guess I'm realizing I'm just not a GTA fan. Moreover, I didn't realize how similar RDR is to GTA4, I thought it was kind of a new game and direction. Glad you are enjoying it.

I will say this though. Fallout 3 is the best game ever! EVER! Right up there with Chrono Trigger, Tecmo Bowl, Soul Caliber, Final Fantasy 7, and SF2 as one of my iconic games of all time.

Re: Red Dead Redemption

Never really got into GTA4 so RDR is all new to me...I'm having a lot of fun with the main story and playing poker. One thing that does disappointed me is the inability pay a hooker to service Marston's manly needs (shouldn't be too hard of a feature to implement)...oh and the lack any Native American presence.

I was disappointed in that too. But the guy's dedicated to his wife, what can ya do? You did get to see Reyes plowing that old broad towards the end of the game though. Haha. Honestly, I was hoping Marston would end up nailing Bonnie.

But I like the way he's pretty much a stand up guy despite the fact he had a rather unsavory past.

Don't want to give any spoilers but pretty good.

100% wasn't easy and some of the 100% stuff isn't available until after you finish the final mission.

I'm gonna go back in to get a few achievements including this sick one:
"Place a hogtied woman on the train tracks, and witness her death by train."


After that I'll give the multiplayer a try. Is the multiplayer fun?
