So, like, here’s the thing. I loved Red Dead Redemption to pieces. I adored it. I wanted John Marston’s babies — although I have an inkling he’d have stinky crotch, but I digress. Point is the MOMENT I put down the controller and watched RDR’s credits fly, I wanted another iteration. Not necessarily a sequel, mind you, and those of you have completed the game likely know why this is, but dammit I still think about RDR to this day and its been over three years SO THAT MEANS SOMETHING.
Instead of outlining all for you via text (I have a date with GameWorks I have to get to) I’ll post IGN’s video:
PLEASE LET THIS BE PLEASE LET THIS BE PLEASE LET THIS BE.
Now I know RDR is essentially GTA with horses, but there was something about RDR that hooked me like a Hylian Loach. For one, I’ve never been able to finish a GTA title. (I’m hoping that’ll change with GTA V!) Two: I feel like Rockstar NAILED the western ambiance and holy hell, that game was fun to explore and roam about. Three: to this DAY I call horseback riding throughout hills “John Marstoning“. Four: probably THE best multiplayer memories I have stem from romping around RDR’s barren lands with my buddy Beez.
HNGHHHHHHHHHHH. I’m seriously giddy over this news. So glad to hear it (apparently) hasn’t been forgotten.
Did you play RDR? Are you excited for another iteration?
