Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
Red Dead Redemption
I think this is one of the best games of this generation. There is so much about it that is done well - the setting, the story, the characters - and the dialogue is undoubtedly the best dialogue ever written for a videogame.
The gameplay - well, it's ok. It definitely takes second place to everything else, but it is at worst passable and is possibly excellent if aim assist is turned off.
I guess it is a game where the cinematic aspects triumph over everything else, but they've done a great job.
This time around, Mexico didn't drag at all, but the Back on the Ranch stuff did a little. However, the ending was delivered with panache and knowing what was going to happen made the scenes leading up to the end resonate a lot more.
